Other Good Stuff

From The Guardian: My Brother is a Superhero, by David Solomons, "a debut novel about a comics-obsessed 11-year-old who is annoyed when his older brother is given powers by an alien to help save two universes has won the £5,000 Waterstones prize."

The Carnegie and Kate Greenaway shortlists have been announced, with a smattering of fantasy included

The movie of The Little Prince has been picked up by Netflix, via Tor

And from the department of truly odd creatures--a fossil monster has at last been identified (it's the "dorsal eye ridge" that really makes this one stand out, I think).

  1. Have you seen this idea coming from James Patterson, BookShots, "a new line of short and propulsive novels that cost less than $5 and can be read in a single sitting?" Looks like one of the first will be “Zoo II,” a science-fiction thriller.
