Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Alien St. Patrick's Day

 

 I found an interesting article copied below:

The Green Fifteen
 
( Marvel / Universal / Jim Henson Company )
By Geoff Boucher

Sure, you wear green on St. Patrick's Day, but some of the greatest characters in American pop culture wear it every day, even when they're skinny-dipping. Today, in a loopy tribute to emerald holiday, we list the 15 greatest green-skinned icons, and you will read it with envy.
1. Yoda
2. The Incredible Hulk
3. Frankenstein's Monster
4. Wicked Witch of the West
5. Kermit the Frog
 
6. Shrek & Fiona
7. The Grinch
8. Oscar the Grouch
9. Godzilla
10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
11. Jolly Green Giant and Sprout
12. Gumby 
13. Creature From the Black Lagoon
14. Greedo ("Star Wars")
15. Green lady from 'Star Trek'

Re: Science Fiction as Literature

If you enjoyed Anne McCaffrey's Brianship series you should check out DF Marrs 'The Last Astronaut'. (Yeah yeah, It's an old thread.)

I actually have a question.

I recently started a SF&F book club, and am looking for a good source of book specific discussion questions & topics. Any recommendations ?

thanks

Jerry

A fun Holiday! Happy Halloween!

This is such a classic. Everyone should decorate their lawn like this.
