(1)NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON TALK SHOW PULLED.Variety’s迈克尔·施奈德,在“Nat Geo Pulls Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s ‘Star Talk’ Amid Misconduct Allegations”说,国家地理频道已暂停奈尔·德葛拉司·泰森的表演StarTalkwith only three of its 20 episodes broadcast because of the sexual harassment allegations against Tyson. One of the unaired episodes was an interview with George R.R. Martin. “Cosmos: Possible Worlds,” the sequel to “Cosmos” is still scheduled to air on Fox starting March 4, because Tyson is such an integral part of that show that it would take massive recutting to take him out of it.

(2)想象猛兽花絮。Netflix has posted an overview of its hit interactive TV production.

(3)那一边。中国已经宣布,他们远侧面月球车,嫦娥四号,已经登陆(CNN:“中国月球车成功着陆时在月球背面,国家媒体宣布”).

In an historic first, China has successfully landed a rover on the far side of the moon, Chinese state media announced Thursday, a huge milestone for the nation as it attempts to position itself as a leading space power.

China’s National Space Administration (CNSA) landed the Chang’e 4 lunar probe at 10:26 am Beijing time on Thursday, in the South Pole-Aitken Basin which is an impact crater, China Central Television (CCTV) reported.

It made its final descent from a landing orbit 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) above the moon’s surface.

官方媒体回购rted the rover transmitted back the world’s first close range image of the far side of the moon. No other details were immediately available.

6轮式流动站是相当小的(1.5x1x1米,不计算所述可折叠的太阳能电池阵列)。与地球的通信是通过卫星把在月球轨道上较早于2018年。

(4)一个城市的漫画的创造者。With DC moving its headquarters to LA, and Marvel making movies there in Hollywood, there’s a rationale for caring about“The 10 Best Mainstream Comic Books By LA Creators Right Now”(LAist),即使它是一个完全国际化的产业。

Doomsday Clockgoes deep into DC Comics lore, bringing back the legendary Watchmen team who had largely remained untouched since their creation by Alan Moore in the 1980s. L.A.-based writerGeoff约翰斯has always had a soft spot for the history of DC, bringing back the past to give new life to characters old and new.

他这样做,在这里再次与队友频繁加里·弗兰克。Frank’s intricate style has put Doomsday Clock on an every-other-month schedule, which can make it harder to follow along, but the book looks gorgeous. It’s a meticulous art style combined with a meticulously written book, with little details to capture your imagination. It’s also bringing back other long lost DC characters, integrating them all in a giant blockbuster story that also manages to focus on character.

(5)LOSS OF A HOME LIBRARY EVOKES BOOK MEMORIES.From the San FranciscoChronicle’s“Datebook” —“重温家的废墟 - 和它的2000本图书库 - 在篝火丢失”由Jaime奥尼尔。

…The public library in Paradise was spared by the fire that leveled that town on Nov. 8. The fire that spared the town library didn’t spare mine, however. Since those books burned, I have spent some time taking a rough inventory of the books I lost, imagining the pages curling in the heat, the shelves that held them collapsing, the smoke from all those books joining with the smoke generated by everything else that was under our roof.

......有书我想给我的妻子和圣诞节生日,和书籍她给我的类似场合。There was a novel I’d read more than four decades ago on a Christmas higher in the mountains, a modern ghost story by Kingsley Amis — “The Green Man” — that offered up its pleasures as I sat by the Franklin stove, snowed in, with nearly 4 feet of snow on the ground outside. There were books half-read, set aside when my fickle attentions were drawn to other books, but books I meant to return to, nonetheless, like a remarkable book about the Teapot Dome scandal by Laton McCartney, a story rich in parallels to our own time, with very rich con men pillaging at will under the stewardship of an incompetent and amoral president….

(6)STAYIN’ ALIVE.约翰·斯卡尔取得了不错的职位从与林赛·埃利斯的关于文学理论‘作者之死’的视频发点互动:“作者之死!也许吧!”(他链接到他的岗位的视频。)

4.作者更了解他们的世界比你做的,但也许不知道所有的答案。…as it happens, sometimes writers and readers don’t find the same things important, with regard to the worldbuilding. As a result, readers sometimes think about certain things more than the authors have, and the authors get caught flatfooted when readers want to know more about that particular thing. Alternately sometimes the author kind of bullshits through something because they don’t think it’s important and later it comes back to bite them and has to be explained away. In老人的战争,I didn’t do any sort of real worldbuilding for Earth because I knew I was going to leave it in a chapter, and I didn’t think about whether I would ever write any sequels.

And then one day I was asked to write a sequel, and readers were asking why future Earth seemed exactly like现在和I had to recon my way out of my own laziness. It worked out okay (indeed the explanation became a seed for much of the series onward), but the point is, at the time of the original writing, there was no deep-seated reason for doing it other than “it doesn’t matter, so why bother.” Guess what! It mattered.

(7)FERGUSON OBIT.[By Guy H. Lillian III.]Eric Ferguson, Florida fan and onetime member of the Southern Fandom Press Alliance, was found deceased on January 3, 2019 in his home on Merritt Island, Florida. I personally spoke to the officer in charge, who merely told me that the investigation into Eric’s death was ongoing. No cause of death is yet known. He had been known to have suffered from severe intestinal troubles in the past, and hadn’t been active in fandom in some years.

(8)今天过生日的。

  • Born January 3, 1892J.R.R.托尔金。那么,什么是他所阅读的第一部作品?对我来说,这是The Hobbit我坠入爱河,并仍然觉得可怕的方式参与,我不这样做,也没有投掷石块请,发现在指环王。我认为这是很远我来说更容易失去自己的工作,并享受比通过后者的奋斗故事会发生什么。我也喜欢The Road Goes Ever On,取自单曲循环在指环王,The Father Christmas Letterswhich a local Theater group enacted one year, and妖怪和评论家和其他杂文。(Died 1973.)
  • Born January 3, 1940Kinuko Y. Craft,79. She is a Japanese-born American painter, illustrator and fantasy artist. True enough. So why is she here? Because she had an amazing run of illustrating the covers of the Patricia McKillip novels until quite recently. I’m linking here to our review atGreen Man骨平原的冰城for a favorite cover she did. There’s a slim volume on Imaginosis calledDrawings & Paintingswhich collects some of her work.
  • 生于1956年1月3日梅尔·吉布森,63. I know the first thing I saw was genre wise involving him was公路勇士在电影院这将大约四十年前。同样地,我看到Mad Max 2Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome在电影院,但我承认有关于这两个电影的感慨。我从来不知道疯狂的麦克斯:狂暴路存在到现在为止,所以错过了释放。他在FairyTale: A True Story,看看20世纪20年代的Cottingley仙女照片,和语音约翰·史密斯在风中奇缘。He plays Hamlet in村庄但我真的不认为我可以打电话genre…
  • 生于1973年1月3日Dan Harmon,46. Aside from being the creator of the hit animated seriesRick and Morty,他的系列HarmonQuest帮助将龙与地下城到一个新的观众。其他作品还包括Community,Heat Vision and Jack怪物房。他作为一个作家和执行制片用于通道101和工作Acceptable.tvhas inspired many filmmakers that comedy and sci-fi/fantasy don’t have to be separate.
  • 生于1975年1月3日丹妮卡麦凯勒,44.从2010 - 2013年和2018以来,她说出火星小姐年轻法官。It’s starting its third season on the fourth of this month on the DC Universe service and it’s most excellent! She’s done far, far more voice work than I can list here, so if you’ve got something you like that she’s done, do mention it.
  • 生于1984年1月3日Brooke Williams,35. For recurring roles, she’s been Catania inThe Shannara Chronicles和Hannah in12 Monkeys。她有一个经常性也作为Jennsen Rahl上Legend of the Seekerwhich is off novels by Terry Goodkind. She also played Hermia inA Midsummer Night’s Dreamat the Globe Theatre In London. Remember we agreed this was fantasy. Indeed she’s been inSleeping Beauty杰克与魔豆,无论是在新西兰制作!

正确的问题:“什么是科幻”?

And here’s the image off my TV:

(11)NO HUGOS, PLEASE.Camestros Felapton does his best to let us down easy – but he doesn’t want to be nominated for Best Fan Writer again:“So, I’m not doing an eligibility list this year…sort of…”

换句话说:提名等WASfun and nice but it made writing the blog less fun and less nice. Not in any terrible angsty torture like way but enough that I’ll skip the experience for 2019. That’s not a ‘NEVER AGAIN!’ just a ‘the view is lovely but I’m a bit puffed out from walking up this hill and tomorrow I’d like to stay in the pub and look at the next big hill from below in the beer garden, thanks’. It was also a bit like eating celery but that analogy requires more explanation and really doesn’t help get the point across.

(12)MORE NOT CHEERY STUFF.预告片的第2季Marvel’s The Punisher

“Did CBS Report That ‘Elites Are Lining Up to Ingest the Blood of Children’?”

一份报告,认为后传开ly appearing on CBS News says that “world leaders and elite businessmen” routinely ingest the blood of human children to achieve “eternal youth.” … We feel absurd having to point this out, but no one outside of characters from mythology and vampire fiction consumes blood to keep from aging.

It’s a 2019 miracle! After Carrot Cake Oreos were rumored to be dropping this spring, some shoppers have taken to Instagram to share that the newest sandwich cookie flavor is already on shelves.

  3. Hampus: I had no idea Tove Jansson illustrated THE HOBBIT. Thanks for the information!

  4. I read The Hobbit between双塔奇兵&Return of the King。我想从图书馆借了两但是当我想拿Return of the Kingit wasn’t available! So my first read through of LOTR hits a huge cliffhanger and then goes on an extended flashback.

  5. 哎迈克,

    我有迹象适量,用了太多的梅雷迪思时刻的名单,我害怕。

  6. For those who might be interested, there’s a 4-CD audio set available that’s mostly JRRT reading from his own works (the longest section is “Riddles in the Dark” from The Hobbit, plus other bits & bobs from LotR and some of the poems from Adventures of Tom Bombadil); it also includes one disc of Christopher Tolkien reading excerpts from The Silmarillion.

  7. @Kip

    He put a disgusting bug in Hamlet Sr’s ear, and when Senior was under his power, he had him jump out a window. ‘Strewth!

    这是契诃夫定律:如果有壁炉架上一个恶心的错误,它必须在剧终前投入别人的耳朵。

  8. I loved bothThe HobbitThe Lord of the Rings。I can easily see someone liking one and not the other, but I liked both.

    有别的东西的话。显然不是重要的。花了一些时间Adulting,呼吁保险,经销,其他保险,都为松散连接到我崩溃上个月的事情。

  9. 还好我没有先检查票房魔它说疯狂的麦克斯发布于3月21日,1980年也许这是为广泛的释放。我的记忆是,这是更大的初夏膜,但谁知道。

    BOM also says that its US gross was $8,750,000 which seems too round a figure. (Also less than I would have guessed, but that was 1980s money.) Just above Jackie Chan in The Big Brawl in the 1980 rankings.

    和像素滚轮?这是我们见过的他的最后一次。他现在只能在我的记忆评论。

  10. 罗布桑顿说:
    FYI,, there is a 1967 Caedmon LP (i.e. vinyl record) called Poems and Songs of Middle Earth.

    这个the one?

  11. 我是谁没有抓住托尔金发烧的人之一。

    I think I was a sophomore in high school when the bigHobbitcraze went around my very small high school. Wondering what everyone else was so gaga about, I read it, and my response was, “okay, sure, nice fantasy tale but a bit juvenile”. At that point, I had been reading adult science fiction for years (and had read theEarthsea Trilogy很久之前)。

    所以它不是直到多年后,我打扰阅读指环王,我的反应是相似的罗伯特·惠特克Sirignano的妻子:这是一个非常大和过长的男孩的书 - 值得一读一次,我从来没有再读一遍任何愿望。我相信这么多由它,因为它是该类型的第一个幻想;当然我读过其他史诗高幻想系列,我觉得好多了,写的。

    <等待火炬,叉子,和石头>

  12. If anyone’s debating whether to seeMary Poppins Returns: I enjoyed it, though it has some frustrating aspects. If you liked the first one, you’ll probably like the majority of this. If you didn’t, you probably won’t.More thoughts here.

    (我意识到Mary Poppins的电影使他们不能坚韧不拔的现实主义风格的作品对一些人,但我认为他们有资格作为SF / F由于备用宇宙口音使用迪克范戴克和林·曼努埃尔·米兰达)

  13. Apropos of nothing, in his Fire & Blood, at one point George R.R. Martin has a Lord Elmo succeeded by his son, Lord Kermit. Who has a brother, Ser Oscar.

    上帝为我作证,我没有做这件事。

  14. (5) Reading this was almost too painful. It’s easy to say books are just things, but as O’Neill says a physical book can be a tangible memory of people and places. I lost a bunch of books and fanzines to a flood in 2016 and I still miss them; I can’t imagine how it would feel if I had lost them all.

    And I might as well throw in my “first Tolkien” experience. I got a LOTR paperback set for my 14th birthday. Read them and loved them immediately. For several years, I kept track of how many times I had read them; eventually stopped counting when it passed about 10 or so. I’ve never really warmed to The Hobbit” although I liked it well enough to read it a few times.

  15. @JJ
    我明白那个。我第一次看指环王,当我上大学的年龄,虽然这是值得一读至少一次,我没觉得有什么必要去观看杰克逊的版本。

  16. P j的埃文斯says我明白那个。我第一次看指环王,当我上大学的年龄,虽然这是值得一读至少一次,我没觉得有什么必要去观看杰克逊的版本。

    I watched the first at home when it came out on DVD and thought it was, errrr, ok. That was not enough to make me want to watch the next two instalments. I’m not much for seeing films made from literature that I really liked so I’m not likely to see the forthcomingDune无论是作为我读过小说半打倍,并描绘在我心中的一切。因此,像银河守护者是更合我的胃口,因为它是一个原创的故事。

  17. Jackson’s movies would be lovely were they stand along original fantasy. As a rendition of Tolkien’s work, they’re lacking in many ways. Although he did get the scenery right.

  18. 梅勒迪斯时刻:加德纳Dozois剑一的书thology (which has some great stuff in it) is $1.99.

  19. @Heather Rose Jones:无论经历是我所称的吸童话事件,只是意识到我会在准确的时间,我应该有读他们读过的书。这个。

    @Andrew: I had completely forgotten the messy details of how longevity became generally available. (I haven’t forgotten that 5-10 years ago I thought I would see the end of a need for red-cell transfusions, but that seems to have receded into the indefinite future.) I do remember the you-must-have-a-secret hysteria of early in the story (and repeated at the end); I suppose desire will continue to overwhelm reason for many.

    @David Shallcross: the question of fantasy in Shakespeare depends at least partly on the definition of fantasy. ISTM that many of us take it to mean这不是 - 但它不会是有趣的,如果它是, where Shakespeare’s audience probably treated those plays as true. (IIRCMacbethspecifically pandered to James VI&I’s paranoia about witchcraft.) I would be more inclined to point to several Gilbert&Sullivan works as fantasy, but I’d be guessing about Victorian attitudes.

    @Kevin哈克尼斯:我的英语课是不是知识渊博,足以得出结论。当学校开始提供AP生物学问题可能是不同的,几年后。

    @Kip Williams: cute, but IIRC Sr’s died in his sleep.

  20. Chip: Thanks for trying to set me straight and all, but I think someone has mistaken “his leap” for “his sleep.” Of course, I won’t point any fingers.

  21. When it comes to LotR, I’m going to horrify people by saying that I prefer the Jackson movies to the books. Which is really, really unusual for me–I almost always prefer the book. But I thought the books were a mess–albeit an entertaining one. I mean, Iread them over a dozen times. It’s not like I hate them. On the other hand, there are big sections I usually just skip over when re-reading, because the whole thing is just such a mess. So…mixed review?

    And, of course, the movies aren’t perfect either–far from it–but overall, I think they’re a lot的a mess than the books. I have a laundry list of complaints about the movies, but I think that上the balance, they end up improving on the booksslightly超过他们做的正好相反。

  22. In Birthdays:

    生于1940年1月3日 - 金育空·Y·克拉夫特,79,她是日本裔美国画家,插画家和幻想的艺术家。真不够。那么,为什么是她在这里?因为她曾表示直到最近帕特里夏McKillip小说的封面惊人的奔跑。我在这里链接到我们的骨骼平原的吟游诗人的绿人回顾自己最喜欢的封面,她做到了。

    Am I overlooking the link, or is in in fact not actually there? I’d love to read that review.

    我特别偏爱她的涵盖Ombria in Shadow索恩的字母。她适合很多情节和人物细节的方式进入她的复杂的盖子是令人愉快的。

  23. 噢,是的,工艺的东西太棒了!即使我没有’t a huge McKillip fan (which I am), I would have been strongly tempted to buy a lot of her books just to own the covers!

    Even more awesome: I just now discovered that a bunch of her stuff is available as jigsaw puzzles!

  24. I’m late on catching up with this —

    @JJ -

    我相信这么多由它,因为它是该类型的第一个幻想;当然我读过其他史诗高幻想系列,我觉得好多了,写的。

    Burn the witch!

    ;-D

    我读高中的时候指环王,我想。这还是晚中学。我一直在读SFF多年之前。我爱它死了,我已经阅读并/或收听到所有四本书(计数The Hobbit)几次。我可以没有汤姆·庞巴迪,但除此之外,我认为这是了不起的。

    OTOH,它没有把我三次尝试让过去的第一个50页的霍比特人。我结束了有很多的乐趣,但那些第一次50页是致命的无聊!

  25. @马丁伍斯特:它亲切地称之为“姆明霍比特人”(她的艺术风格很有特色,如果你的这种风格的早期会议的有姆明的故事,每一个略去杨松插图看起来像姆明图)。

  26. Hmm, I seem to be the only one who lovedFarmer Giles of Hamas much as anything else of Tolkien’s. And I’m glad someone else lovesThe Monsters and the Criticsenough to mention.
