Fuzzy Nation by John ScalziFan Fiction and Fuzzy Nation

By John Scalzi

Last year I announced on my Web site that I had written a novel called Fuzzy Nation, which was a “reboot” of the 1962 Hugo-nominated novel Little Fuzzy, by H. Beam Piper—which is to say that I took some of the characters and situations of the Piper novel and cast them into a new story which has similarities to, but it ultimately quite a bit different from, the original iteration of the story.



After the Golden Age by Carrie VaughnBefore the Golden Age

By Carrie Vaughn

A lot of people have been asking me about comic books.  After the Golden Age is so obviously inspired by the classic comic-book superheroes, surely I must have a lifelong love for them.  But I have a terrible confession:  I didn’t really read comic books when I was growing up, and didn’t start until college, when I encountered Watchmen and The Dark Knight and all those seminal graphic novels that changed everything.  Instead, I watched a lot of TV, and that’s how I fell in love with superheroes.



Stonewielder by Ian C. EsslemontIan C. Esslemont on Collaboration

In a recent interview I commented that Steven Erikson and I have often been approached by people expressing surprise, even disbelief, at our long-standing collaboration in a co-created world (The Malazan Empire). These comments always come as a surprise to us because in retrospect the process seemed an entirely natural one. It simply unfolded organically—we worked the world out together, bouncing ideas off each other and laughing an awful lot in the process.
