We look for authors who satisfy like Scalzi, find out how dirty the new dirty editions of The Magicians are and discuss an ethical question regarding library books.
WHAT ARE WE DRINKING?
Tom: Lagavulin 16yr.
Terpkristin: There's a Witcher stamp! It seems based on the game, not necessarily the book, but how cool is that?
Stephen: If the sheer number of characters stops you from attempting to start Steven Erikson's Malazan series, Tor.com has listed the characters of Gardens of the Moon with artist renderings.
Trike: Star Trek: Discovery TV series delayed until May
Tamahome: NSFW version of The Magicians tv series released online: Now if they could just do the same with Avasarala and The Expanse.
Nokomis.FL: If you liked The Expanse, you'll be happy to know that Allen Steele's Coyote has optioned for television.
