Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby is Being Made into a Movie

Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favourite authors, Survivor is a particular favourite of mine, and while Fight Club was a much better film adaptation than Choke (at least in my opinion), I'm still pretty excited to hear that Lullaby, a book about a mysterious chant that's been killing off infants, and adults, is being made into a movie with Palahniuk himself getting elbows deep in the movie's production. Quite rightly too considering the origins of the book.

Titan Books Announces the Release of Art of Fable Legends

Though the debate continues as to whether video games can be considered art, there's no doubt that some games are just artistically fantastic and warrant their own art books and in some cases, that happens, like with Titan Books' latest announcement for the Art of Fable Legends.

Steven Spielberg to Direct Ready Player One

Though I'm slowly managing to read the book for the first time, I'm already pretty invested in the film adaptation of Ready Player One, a novel by Ernest Cline which tells the story of an insane virtual reality video game which lets people escape from the almost apocalyptic world they're living in.

Killzone’s Anniversary Art Book Looks Stunning

Art books are my Achilles heel. Regardless which game or series they're from, I'll love each and every one. I love the art which goes into video games, even those I haven't a clue about. However, when I am familiar with the franchise, that's even better. The latest art book to catch my eye is the one being released by Sony for the 15th anniversary of Killzone.
