  1. Philip Pullman Released a Marisa Coulter His Dark Materials Story Yesterday!

    Like Pottermore, but colder. Polarmore.

    Holy cats! (Or, you know, whatever form your daemon takes). The Book of Dust, Philip Pullman's companion novel to the His Dark Materials trilogy, may not be released until 2016 at the earliest. But that doesn't mean we'll need to wait a year before reading new content set in the Dark Materials world!

  4. Massachusetts Town to Punish Residents for Snowy Sidewalks Using Actual Scarlet Letters

    So a literal slippery slope.

    The small town of Somerville, Massachusetts is deeply concerned about the safety hazard posed by unshoveled sidewalks. So concerned, in fact, that city officials are unironically reverting back to some tried-and-true methods of public shaming!

  5. Gaiman Tells Fans to Slow Their Roll Over Hiddleston Sandman Joke; First Good Omens Previews Arrive!

    Bit of a mixed bag, that.

  6. First Look at Neil Patrick Harris in American Horror Story Brings us a Beautiful, Doll-Toting Weirdo

    It's going to be legend-dummy.

    Neil Patrick Harris and his real-life husband David Burtka are both set to appear in the final episodes of this season's American Horror Story; Harris as "a chameleon salesman." Yep!

  8. Women In STEM, the White House Wants to Hear Your Stories!

    And we do too, by the by.

    Of the many reasons why STEM fields aren't traditionally dominated by women, perceived lack of relevant role models might be the easiest to fix.

  9. We Heartily Approve of This Little Girl’s List of Kick-Ass Fictional Ladies

    I am no man!

    Fantasy and young adult literature can get a bad rap sometimes, but Mia's list of some of her favorite heroines is a perfect breakdown of why strong female characters like Katniss or Divergent's Tris are so important. Reminder: you don't need to be in the target demographic to benefit from reading these character's stories, either. The qualities they embody are always relevant, whether you're a young adult or just a plain old grownup.
