The British Library releases collection online
The British Library has digitised a huge number of its collection & has released it to public domain, allowing people to do what they want with the images release.
there are some incredible illustrations within, all speaking to a time, place & attitude long since past (&, in some cases, for good reason).
SHE Who Walked the Land – incomplete fantasy novel
this is part of the transworld fantasy novel that I’ve been working casually for the past couple of years (academia takes time away from it unfortunately).
The plot (so far) is basically: a young woman from our world is (literally) thrown into another world & must discover why she’s there, working her will against the powers that seek to control her & those that wish to see her destroyed.
Lots of grammatically mistakes but it’s still only a draft.
The Terrible Thing – a children’s poem
Despite it’s few grammatical & spelling mistakes, I’m terribly proud of this work.
I really should have it illustrated & published one day.
Sneak speak at the new live action Patlabor film
I’m a pretty massive fan of the Patlabor franchise (retrospective on the series coming soon), so am excite to see new & confirmed images of the upcoming live action film.
Whilst so many live action adaptations from anime fail on so many levels, I hope that they get this right. For the Labors if nothing else.
plus the tech in the anime, OVAs & movies are so dated that it’s almost funny & painful to look at them.
List of coming Anime (Northern) Winter season 2013
Here is a list of upcoming anime for the end of the year and the start of January, complete with video previews and DVD releases.
Some interesting stuff on the list. Am personally looking forward to Witch Craft Works, because it’s a great manga (despite all the fan service).
