Bits and pieces:
- The finalists for Writers of the Future quarter 2 have been announced. I'm rooting for Nick Tchan, who is a trusted critique partner and a good friend.
- Torchwood episode 2 is tonight, and I'm crossing my fingers Starz puts it online.
- Fans who were outraged by the death of Sean Bean's character on Game of Thrones were oblivious on two fronts. (a) The character died 15 years ago when George R.R. Martin wrote the book and (b) Sean Bean's character always dies. (Richard Sharpe and a few others excepted.) Want proof? Go watch the Sean Bean Death Reel. It's funny and sick all at the same time.
