January News Roundup

* Our friends at io9 have put together a list of 55 SF and fantasy films to look out for this year <http://io9.com/5723075/55-science-fictionfantasy-movies-to-watch-out-for-in-2011>.  Based on some of the titles, it looks like the list combines "look out for" as in "avoid like the plague" and "look out for" as in "this is gonna be cool" but anyway you slice it, this year is going to be big for genre film.

* Cory Doctorow has a nice article at Publisher's Weekly about the saga of self-publishing his recent novel.  It's amusing, enlightening, and perhaps a cautionary story for authors considering self-publishing <http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/columns-and-blogs/cory-doctorow/article/45565-zen-and-the-art-of-self-publishing.html>.
