“I’m more opposed to the Watchmen prequels than I was a month or two ago. Not because of the moral issues involved, or because the new comics won’t be interesting in their own way, but because rereading Watchmen has reminded me that the original series deserves to be read without distraction, without unnecessary hangers-on.”—The Great Alan Moore Reread: Watchmen, Part 4 by Tim Callahan
“We don’t need Boba Fett’s voice to sound like his retconned father’s — that’s not why we loved that over-armed bounty hunter. We don’t need to see Hayden Christensen’s ghost at the end of Return of the Jedi — he’s not the person who Luke held as he died. You’re taking away the moments that reverberated in us, the little bits and bobs that made a silly popcorn film so damn special. And you have the gall to act above it all when you do it.”—Lucas Shot First: The Surprisingly Powerful Sense of Betrayal George Lucas Creates by Emily Asher-Perrin
“The Green Man is a strange work for Kingsley Amis as it is essentially a ghost story disguised as a sexual comedy. It centers on Maurice Allington, a proprietor of an old English inn called The Green Man. Through general incompetence, biting insults, and slapstick humor Maurice will remind any normal person of John Cleese’s Basil Fawlty.”—Kingsley Amis’s The Green Man is Like Fawlty Towers Plus Sex and Ghosts by Ryan Britt
“This is a fantastically powerful poem to open with and one I enjoyed reading very much — the cadence, the themes present, the sorrow, the feeling of something passing. It makes me wonder whether this poem speaks about the events we are just about to embark upon.”— Malazan Re-read of the Fallen: The Bonehunters, Prologue
“But here is a chance for convention planners to prove something to the female fandom demographic: that you notice us. That you value our attendance and know that the majority of us are not only there to dress up as some elfin princess in a colorful bikini. We are gamers. We are writers. We are thoughtful fanatics.”—The Cornell Ratio: Should SFF Convention Panels Be 50/50 Male and Female?
