Hey Gang, just a heads up for anybody that’s interested, the KJA Sci-Fi Short Story Collection I reviewed last week is Now Available! The 1st of 4 planned collected volumes, this one has a Dune entry, a sequel to a famous Harlan Ellison story, and much more, plus the cover design is so delightfully trippy.
If you are a fan of the genre or the Author, I highly recommend you check this out. Read my review here and then head to your nearest bookstore for the Hardcover/Paperback or pull up your favorite E-Format (many of which can be found here) and snap up a copy. You won’t be disappointed!
Variety reports that the next Scooby-Doo series is set to premiere on Boomerang sometime in 2019!
And, as previously speculated and confirmed by Grey Griffin, it will indeed be a sort of reboot of The New Scooby-Doo Movies with each episode featuring guest stars.
The Variety piece reads: “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”: In the series from Warner Bros. Animation, the Mystery Inc. gang faces some of their toughest mysteries yet. To crack the cases, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo will join forces with some of the biggest names in celebrity and pop culture — including NBA star Chris Paul; recording artists Halsey and Sia; Ricky Gervais, Kenan Thompson, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Mark Hamill, and Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White, reprising his iconic role), as well as characters like Wonder Woman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and The Flash. Chris Bailey (“Kim Possible”) serves as producer with Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) as executive producer.
Personally, I’m super excited for this! I just hope they pick a good style for the models and animation. A couple of those guest stars are a bit surpising though (Ricky Gervais? Urkel?), but it does fit into the Scooby Movies/Team-Up vibe, so I’m not worried. Let us know what you think in the comments!
Like a leaf on the wind, the Serenity soars again!
20th Century Fox has announced the return of Joss Whedon’s beloved, yet quickly cancelled, early 2000’s Sci-Fi franchise.
Sadly, not to screens, but in the best possible way that isn’t filmed, in my opinion.
In conjunction with Titan books, this fall will see the release of the 1st of 3 (for now) Firefly novels, overseen by Josh Whedon himself.
They will written by well known tie-in author Nancy Holder, probably best known for her Buffy novels (though I know from her great Smallville novels), Tim Lebbon, author of Star Wars: Dawn Of The Jedi: Into The Void, and James Lovegrove, a British writer whose works I sadly don’t know, though after searching him, his work sounds like something I’d be into.
I have wanted Firefly novels for a long time, so I am incredibly excited for these!
Hopefully sales are strong enough that it leads to more than just 3.
The 1st drops October 2018, and that can’t come quick enough.
