Here are some gorgeous, recently released cover drawings by Mary Grandpre for Scholastic’s American versions of Rowling’s Harry Potter books. http://front.kinja.com/these-missing-harry-potter-cover-illustrations-are-bett-818640259

Some speculation on what will really rock our Sci Fi/Fantasy worlds on the Fall TV lineup http://io9.com/which-new-show-will-rock-your-tv-set-first-impressions-828600560

In Firefly News, yes there is Firefly news. No, there is no new movie or a TV show reboot coming; it is a new online game. Hey! Be happy there is anything new about Firefly! http://io9.com/in-this-firefly-online-game-you-cant-let-them-take-th-827053727

Mark Gatiss, recently of Sherlock and Doctor Who fame, will join the cast of Game of Thrones. http://www.themarysue.com/mark-gatiss-game-of-thrones/

This time a woman, DC president Diane Nelson (anyone else think it is ironic that her name is Diane?) weighs in negatively on a Wonder Woman film. Ugh. How anti-feminist, Diane. http://www.themarysue.com/diane-nelson-wonder-woman/

These cookie cutters make my fangirl heart go “squee”! http://www.themarysue.com/rocket-ship-cookie-cutters/

Four years on and the producers of Battlestar Galactica still have no answer to fans’ questions about who or what Starbuck was after season 3 and what was her fate in the finale. http://www.blastr.com/2013-7-18/even-bsgs-producers-arent-entirely-sure-what-happened-starbuck

Sixth Doctor Colin Baker weighs in on the Great Female Doctor Debate, favorably. Awesome. http://www.blastr.com/2013-7-17/6th-doctor-colin-baker-weighs-female-12th-doctor-debate

And because Star Trek turned me into the major geek I am today, here is a sneak peek at Hallmark’s new Star Trek Christmas ornaments for 2014. Love it! http://www.startrek.com/article/first-look-hallmarks-star-trek-ornaments-for-2014

And as a bonus this week, this gem about Neil Gaiman made the rounds of social media thanks to Gaiman himself who got tickled by the random choice of number 14. Who can blame him? I am so glad I know what kind of cheese he prefers, for now when he and Amanda come by for aperatifs, I will not make an embarassing social gaff, at least not with cheese (no, I don’t know them). LOL http://www.buzzfeed.com/harpercollins/14-things-you-didnt-know-about-neil-gaiman-9npd
