As I travelled through cyberspace this week I found news about Douglas Adams, George RR Martin and a wonderful piece on the wonders of Alice in Wonderland.
From The Guardian
Douglas Adams’s celebrated Doctor Who script City of Death, written over the course of a weekend after the producer, in Adams’s words, “took me back to his place, locked me in his study and hosed me down with whisky and black coffee for a few days”, is being turned into a novel by the author James Goss.
From The Independent
Good news and bad news for fans of George R R Martin, with the announcement that he is ditching the World Fantasy Convention in Saratoga and this year’s San Diego Comicon … so that he can get on with writing the next novel in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series.
From BBC iWonder
Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s story Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of our most popular novels. First published in 1865, it has never been out of print.
So why have Alice and the inhabitants of her Wonderland captivated us for so long? And why have they inspired music, film, fashion and even theme park rides?
