Just thought I’d highlight one of my favourite blogs, which seems to be going from strength to strength: Strange Maps. It does what it says on the tin. Unmissable if you like maps (and there can’t be many fantasy readers/writers who aren’t at least a little cartographically enthused, can there?), a goldmine of surprising nuggets if you’re into history, and just generally interesting in an all round sort of way. Couple of recent fantasticalish posts: The Hollow Earth and The Most Generic Country Ever.
And here come trailers for a couple of movies I’ve been eagerly anticipating for some time. Strangely, the trailers had contrasting effects: I’m now only mildly interested in one of the movies (which would make it an anti-trailer, I guess), while I’m positively trembling with feverish excitement at the prospect of the other. I’ll leave you to decide for yourself which is which: 28 Weeks Later and Day Watch.
