Riding the waves of Internet

This morning was more relaxed than usual and I've got the time for a little surfing. So let's see what news kept my eye.


The biggest news that draw my attention was that of a collaboration between Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. Gauntlet Press will release an anthology named "He is Legend: Celebrating Richard Matheson" and the anthology will contain a novella, "Throttle", written by Stephen King and Joe Hill, their first collaboration. I am thrilled and I can hardly wait the outcome. You can find this news and the press release on Mr. King's website.



I found the trailer of "The Colour of Magic", a television adaptation of Terry Pratchett's "The Colour of Magic" and "The Light Fantastic" by Sky One. It was broadcast on Easter in UK, so it is an old news but I really enjoyed the trailer (you can see it here) and that made me curious about the interpretation of Rincewind, Twoflower, Luggage and Cohen the barbarian, and many other things. In the cast list I saw that Twoflower is played by Sean Astin, the former Samwise Gamgee, I saw Christopher Lee, and I love how he portrays villains, and I saw Jeremy Irons. I just hope that this movie will be realease on DVD too, because I would love to see it.






And since yesterday I reviewed "The Darkness That Comes Before", today I found on FantasyBookSpot the first chapter of R. Scott Bakker's forthcoming novel "Neuropath" (you can read it here). Also I found a review of this novel on Pat's Fantasy Hotlist.







Also I found the "Toll of Hounds" prologue on SFF World.






I'm happy that I found only good news but worried a bit that my wishing list is a little larger now :).

Nice find about the Stephen King/Joe Hill collaboration! I hadn't heard anything about that, but it sounds pretty interesting...

You do know all the hot stuff going on. I bought today Stephen King's "On Writing" and Patrick Susskind's Patrick Süskind's "Perfume, the story of a murder". Goody, goody.

I have "On Writing" too but every time I put another book in front of it in reading line. I hope that I will read it this year.

It reads really fast and I am somewhere halfway through it and I started reading yesterday night and today and I had around fiove hours to get that far. The intro part about his life is interesting, but a tad too long running around for 90 pages. I like his sense of humor.
