1:01AM - Literature fans everywhere, rejoice!
Posted for a friend without an account:
The "breathtaking" sequel to Cassandra Clare's City of Bones
Hooray for more good times in the teen section!
I don't think anyone has posted on it yet, but Gary Gygax has apparently passed away.
No official articles yet.
(for the uninformed, he's the game designer behind Dungeons and Dragons)
ETA, courtesy of comments: Confirmed.
1:30PM - My hed is tilted slightly, yay?
This probably won't provoke much more than a few raised eyebrows, but I was looking at the Amazon entry for CC's new City of Ashes novel when I noticed something odd about the cover to a recommended book called Frostbite by Richelle Mead. From the summary and subtitle, Mead's book looks like it's about bunch of teenagers that attend a Hogwarts-like academy for vampires, but take a look at the book's cover here. Now compare that to the cover of the box set for Buffy the Vampire season 2 here. I realize that the two images aren't exactly the same, but given that Mead's book is about vampires, I think the similarities are close enough to have Mead's cover designer be invited to an intimate dinner-and-conversation with a clue-bat.
ETA: Fixed the title to be slightly more amusing.
