In EUish news, the Scribe Awards were also given out at the con, and Karen Miller’s The Clone Wars: Wild Space did not take the Best Novel – Adapted prize under Speculative Fiction. It went to an actual adaptation, Bob Greenberger’s novelization of Hellboy: The Golden Army. However, James’s Rollins novelization of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did take the Adapted prize in the category of General Fiction. (How are aliens general fiction, again?) Congrats to Rollins and condolences to Miller, in any case.
Thursday is officially the first day of San Diego Comic-Con, but in these days of Twitter those of us stuck at home are even more aware that people are beginning to pour into the city and get in the con-going mood. (StarWars.com is already posting pics.)
In other news. The trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland leaked this afternoon and was promptly removed from a variety of sites. That means if you look hard enough, you can probably find it now… But I’m much too lazy for that. Look for it all over the internet officially tomorrow afternoon.
