Fantastically Fun Fridays: June 22, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone!

For starters this afternoon, we'd like to congratulate the winners of the Locus Awards, including China Miéville for Embassytown, which won Best Science Fiction Novel; George R.R. Martin for A Dance with Dragons, which won Best Fantasy Novel; Erin Morgenstern for The Night Circus, which won Best First Novel; and Catherynne M. Valente's The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, which won Best Young Adult Book.  Here is a list of all the winners--congratulations to all!

Here are some other fun things we found for you this week:

  • An amazing flowchart connecting the characters in Stephen King's fiction.  Caveat: it doesn't include The Dark Tower series, but all that means is that one of us can do it.  So, get to work! (Geek Tyrant)
  • A trailer for The Avengers, Firefly-style. Boy, do I miss that show! (Buzzfeed)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
