1. New Worlds to Explore | Genre Spotlight →

    Judging by the upcoming fall publishing season, there will be plenty of speculative fiction titles to sharpen readers’ minds, but no one particular trend is leading the charge. Sf and fantasy has attracted a far more diverse readership than ever before, and publishing success can be found by exploring that diversity. Military sf and space opera stage a revival, fantasy goes dark, and digital publishing is here to stay.

    Get your SF/fantasy geek on! Fellow Tumblrarian Genre Junkie shines a spotlight on winter 2013/spring 2014 titles. Prepare to have your mind blown with Pierce Brown’s Red Rising.

In honor of Bram Stoker, born 165 years ago today and best known for his novel DRACULA, we thought we’d share an old favorite, this Kenn Duncan photo of the late Raul Julia in the 1978 stage production of Stoker’s novel. Tell us your favorite vampire moments in film, books, television or anything else…

Lovely Raul Julia today!

Maybe this morning you woke up and said, “Today I would like to see a Roberto Bolaño story about a zombie movie turned into a moody animation filled with BLAM!’s and blood.” If that’s the case, that’s a weirdly specific thought, but lucky you, here it is. (All of this via Granta, who published the story in their Horror Issue.)

This year many readers have been having their cake and eating it too with literary genre fiction by Colson Whitehead (whose Zone One is an LJ “More of the Best” book), Daryl Gregory, (whose Raising Stony Mayhall is among our Best SF/Fantasy books), and Lev Grossman (whose the Magician King was a personal favorite). Gratify the urge for both pulpy plot and probing style in Bolaño’s zombie story and in this dark animated adaptation.
