Brief news roundup

August 10, 2007

Short article about Hero by Perry Moore in Newsweek. Is that a spoiler at then end of the article? Guess that means I should read the ARC now.

Apparently I’m not the only one confused by how The Dangerous Book for Boys will be adapted into a movie. (My favorite line: “But then someone mentioned that there might be interest in The Dangerous Book for Boys and I wasn’t sure how it would work because it’s a non-fiction book and it doesn’t have plots and characters.”)

Judy Blume interviewed.

    Maybe the history channels expose on Superman airing tommorrow will shed some light on Moore’s article.

    Speaking of sex and superheroes, Wonder Woman’s character had some S&M qualities,the lasso and bracelets. (whips and shackles?) In addition, she does come from an island of amazonian women.

    re: Dangerous Book for Boys

    I can’t understand the hubbub over this book when The American Boys Handy Book has been available for 100 years and offers plenty of ways for a modern young boy to either injure himself, injure animals, drown or feel pathetic for not doing any of those things.
