Sci-fi loses and wins, crime takes a stab at television, and children’s fiction is as hot as erotica.
After a 75-year-long career culminating with 2011’s All the Lives He Led, sci-fi legend Frederik Pohl has passed away at 93.
While he shall be sorely missed by fans worldwide, the sci-fi community has some cause to celebrate: this year’s Hugo Award winners have just been announced.
But sci-fi’s hardly the only genre in award-mode these days: the Crime Writer’s Association will be handing out its traditional Crime Thriller Daggers in October, and also launching a Book Club-type series for the small screen.
Meanwhile, in big-screen world, the search is over for 50 Shades of Grey‘s perfect Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, and they’re a pretty hot pair.
Speaking of hot, celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis just published a children’s series in which hot chocolate whisks the young heros away to Naples and Paris.
