Space ships and fairy tales, art and literature…

Over at Tor.com there is always something interesting to read. Way too much interesting stuff to read, it’s impossible to keep up. However, here are two articles that I did have time to read.

This article links to a chronicle by visual effects artist Gavin Rothery about how certain space ships have inspired the design of other space ships. Amusing text and beautiful conceptual art.

Also, Philip Pullman’s next book has been announced. At Tor.com they mention it in this article. Unfortunately it is not The Book of Dust, but a re-telling of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, the old stories re-told in Pullmans own words. Even if it’s not The Book of Dust, I’m sure it will be worth reading. There is also an article on Pullman’s website.
