Meesha writes “On December 4th at 7 PM three sci-fi authors will be signing at Borders in the Howard Hughes Center in Los Angeles California. Being a follower of these authors I thought that others may be interested in attending or ordering signed books.

Oh, Gollum! Thanks to the lawsuit Peter Jackson filed against New Line Cinema regarding profits on The Lord of the Rings franchise, it appears that New Line no longer wishes his services for the production of The Hobbit, or for a “planned” LotR prequel (first I’ve heard of that). Now, there’s still nothing certain about it actually getting made…but this is certainly a blow to Middle-Earth fans…Update 11/21: MGM says not so fast…the matter is far from closed.

With the human race facing extinction when all women become infertile, a bureaucrat becomes the unlikely champion of survival. Thus is the setting of Children of Men, a movie based on the novel by P.D. James. The official website is now open, along with a fan team site with news, challenges, and rewards. Directed and co-written by Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), it stars Clive Owen (Sin City), Julianne Moore (Hannibal), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Serenity), Charlie Hunnam (Hooligans) and Oscar winner Michael Caine (Batman Begins).
