Against my better judgement I joined Twitter a couple of months ago. You can follow me there, if that sort of thing is your wont, although my Tweeting frequency is highly variable.
This weekend is the San Diego Comic-Con, which means potentially major TV and movie announcements but relatively little on the book front. That said, Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss and, erm, Christopher Paolini are on a panel together, which should be interesting. Apparently very, very early and tentative chunks of The Wise Man's Fear have been sent out to very select editors and authors for feedback (Sanderson says it's great), which is unusual, given that the final book hasn't been turned in yet.
In other news, George R.R. Martin has brutally murdered Pat from Pat's Fantasy Hotlist, which I'm sure has made him very happy. I'm betting for "Splattered under rampaging mammoth," as the causal event.
The countdown to StarCraft II continues. io9 has a reasonably brief summary of the story so far. The game launches in less than one week.
