While Phoenix keeps doing its thing (most recently observing falling snow!), comes news that AMC is doing a movie of Stan Robinson's landmark Red Mars. I love that book. It's SF done right, in every way. (...although, if this is true, who knows when we'll ever get to the Moon again, let alone Mars?)
Also, Bookgasm writes about the Vertigopedia here.
Also also: even for Fox News, this is low.
