Edge of Tomorrow

I don’t think anyone will be surprised hear that the new Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt flick won’t be called “All You Need is Kill.” While that may work (at some level) as a book title, it doesn’t really grab you as the name of a film. Lot’s of promo stuff has started appearing on the web, including a couple of rather fetching posters:

Very sad to hear that my all-time favourite author has terminal cancer. He posted the news on his website, saying that he probably has about a year to live.

The Guardian’s great Sci-Fi hunt

Just a quick one.

The Guardian is running a blog entry to find the best independently-published science fiction story.

Here’s the link, and don’t forget to check your spelling before you hit the sumbit button 🙂
