Gânduri de miercuri

Ştirea săptămânii este despre un nou serial Star Trek care va debuta pe canalul CBS în ianuarie 2017. Deocamdată informaţii mai concrete nu sunt, dar mie mi-e dor de universul Star Trek mult mai mult decât de universul Star Wars, de exemplu, astfel că lansarea unei noi serii despre Enterprise, Federaţie şi Flota Stelară este cea mai bună ştire posibilă.

Trailer-ul adevărat se va lansa vineri, dar mai jos aveţi un scurt trailer al trailer-ului. Îmi amintesc cu nostalgie de Warcraft 1 şi 2 (după a cărui poveste se pare că s-a făcut şi scenariul filmului), astfel că abia aştept să reintru în universul Azeroth.

All love to Heinlein, Clarke, Asimov, et al., but they’re dead now. They don’t need the money from readers; living authors do. Moreover, Heinlein, Clarke, Asimov, et al have been dead on average two to three decades and their best known work is half a century old. No matter how brilliant they were or how foundational they were to the genre, they’re going to be dated. None of the futures of Heinlein , as just one example, resemble a future that begins from today; they branch off from the 50s or 60s. Readers (in general) don’t want to have to go backwards a half century in order to move forward again.

Romanul de debut al unuia dintre cei mai buni scriitori de proză scurtă din ultimii ani.

NinefoxGambitTo win an impossible war Captain Kel Cheris must awaken an ancient weapon and a despised traitor general.

Captain Kel Cheris of the hexarchate is disgraced for using unconventional methods in a battle against heretics. Kel Command gives her the opportunity to redeem herself by retaking the Fortress of Scattered Needles, a star fortress that has recently been captured by heretics. Cheris’s career isn’t the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the hexarchate itself might be next.

Cheris’s best hope is to ally with the undead tactician Shuos Jedao. The good news is that Jedao has never lost a battle, and he may be the only one who can figure out how to successfully besiege the fortress.

The bad news is that Jedao went mad in his first life and massacred two armies, one of them his own. As the siege wears on, Cheris must decide how far she can trust Jedao–because she might be his next victim.

Filmul nu e science-fiction, dar e realizat de Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine on a Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich), e filmat în totalitate folosind stop-motion şi e unul dintre cele mai lăudate ale anului.
