JK Rowling, Bioshock, Iron Man and Doctor Who

Good morning folks! Did you enjoy the weekend? I went to the Star Wars exhibition on London’s South Bank, which I’ll blog about later if time permits. [Update: done ]. In the meantime, start the week with a Monday round-up of SF bits and bobs. Some links to amuse and inform:

Item!
The author JK Rowling is turning her hand to detective fiction for her next best-seller, says crime author Ian Rankin. Check out SCI FI Wire .

Item!
Today’s the day that PC owners can try out Bioshock, the awesome 3D game that’s scoring highly on the Xbox 360. PC demo available imminently, says Kotaku .

Item!
Booksellers everywhere are being asked to recall the Doctor Who Annual 2008, although nobody’s quite sure of the reason why... (Outpost Gallifrey link here ).

Item!
The Iron Man movie presentation took Comic-Con by storm, and the creators have promised that the footage from the event will soon be officially available online. More from SCI FI .


You will find more news and pictures from Comic-Con in the next issue of SFX. In the meantime, don't forget that issue 160 is still on sale (and it gets something of a favourable write-up here at SF Signal ). That’s all for now. Have a good day, y’all.
