Tor.com - "An A.I. That Loves Cat Pictures: Hugo-Winning Short Story Becomes YA Novel"

Ooh, I'm interested. But also a little wary. I remember mostly enjoying "Cat Pictures Please," although I cringed at the forced outing of a gay pastor because "Out gay men are much happier."

 

Crossing my fingers for more A.I. goodness and less "wait, I know you mean well, but stop."

The Book of Dust is finally being published!!!

I first heard the news from one of our children librarians who saw it on NPR.

 

Quick summary: It's going to be a trilogy. The first book currently has a publication date of October 19 and the books will span HDM (first set before when Lyra's a baby, second and third set after following Lyra as a young woman). According to Pullman "you don't have to read it before you read [the original trilogy] ... this is another story that comes after it, so it's not a sequel, and it's not a prequel, it's an equal."

 

I can't wait!*

 

*Not going to lie, after waiting so many years for this book I feel like I might be jinxing the whole thing with this post. But the publication date is this year, so I'm holding out hope it will finally happen.

Copyright Clash Over Demon-Fighting Stories

    

 

Author Sherrilyn Kenyon, best known for her Dark-Hunter series, has filed suit against author Cassandra Clare, author of the popular Mortal Instruments series, for copyright and trademark infringement. According to Kenyon, the:  

"Shadowhunter series initially used Kenyon's trademark 'darkhunter.' After Kenyon demanded that Clare remove the word 'darkhunter' from her work, Clare used the term 'shadowhunter' for her protagonists instead, according to the lawsuit. The word 'hunter' was also removed from the book title.


 Clare's book, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was published in 2007. Since then, Clare has expanded her use of the term 'shadowhunter' despite assurances that she would not, according to Kenyon.


 Clare's 2007 book was made into a movie and released in 2013, the lawsuit states. In 2014, it was reportedly announced that Mortal Instruments: City of Bones would be adapted into a television series called Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.


 Kenyon says ABC Family picked up Clare's TV pilot in March 2015. The first episode of the Shadowhunters TV show premiered on Jan. 12 of this year, according to IMDB.


 The Dark-Hunter author also claims Clare has used symbols and merchandise  that are confusingly similar to Kenyon's."

Kenyon also states there are many similarities between her story and Clare's story. However, she is not claiming plagiarism.

 

Author Courtney Milan took a look at the court documents and makes a great case for why Kenyon's suit may not have merit: https://twitter.com/courtneymilan
