Dragon’s 9 Sons, Sayonara Jupiter

If you haven’t read Chris Roberson’s The Dragon’s Nine Sons, you can now read the first three chapters online to get you started.

Haruhi Wii game, LITA sings!

I stopped by the KADOKAWA Anime channel, and the focus is on the new Haruhi Wii game released in Japan on Thursday. Based on the video the game play looks a bit simple, but perhaps that is just level one. Word is that the Kadokawa site will be streaming the first episode of season two […]

Gaiman story, trailer online

Neil Gaiman’s story The Day The Saucers Came is online for free reading. It is a wonderful little short story (or perhaps a poem), and the illustrations are perfect for the tale. And here is the first Coraline trailer Neil himself likes…

Wall-E got several nominations, including Best Animated, where its main competition is Kung Fu Panda. Hell Boy II only got one category (Makeup), and Iron Man and Wanted only a few each. Dark Knight did noticeably better, but the two runaways are Benjamin Buttons and Slumdog Millionaire. I will be watching this years Acadamy Awards […]
