Direct from Neil Gaiman’s blog, here’s an excerpt from the new Harper Audio version of Good Omens, the novel that Gaiman wrote in collaboration with Terry Prachett:
This photo has been making the rounds of the Internet in recent days.
Allnewsweb described the origin of the photo this way:
Mr Gang Hao was taking photos of scenery near his house in the city of Gushan on the 19th of July. After he had the photos developed he noticed this most peculiar feature in one of the images (above and below). He contacted paranormal researchers but they haven’t been able to solve the puzzle. Is this some sort of UFO disguised as an earthly rock or is it the result of an unknown natural phenomenon?
We don’t know how much of this story is real. But the photo shows a white halo around the rock, pretty clear evidence of photoshopping. As you can see in this blow-up:
However, this hoaxer demonstrates good taste, because it looks like he was inspired by the painting “Castle in the Pyrenees” by Rene Magritte.
Internet hoaxers are fans of French surrealism? News to us.
Have you read any Hulk comics lately? No? Then you’ve missed out on some big, thundering entertainment. The critics don’t like them. We do. And so do readers. The Hulk has skyrocketed back to the top of the best seller lists. Why, you may ask?
The answer is quite simple: They have taken the Hulk back to his roots. No longer does Marvel seem embarrassed of their creation, hiding their disdain behind faux fancy writing, they now relish in his massive grandeur. These comics recall what we all liked about him as children: He’s big, he’s powerful, and he smashes things! And this all began with an event called “Planet Hulk.”
Still not interested in tracking down these stories at your local comic shop? Worry not. Lionsgate and Marvel Animation offer another option: Planet Hulk … a direct to DVD animated feature. This feature won’t hit retail outlets till February 2010, but we have the trailer for you now. So hit the play button and prepare for power … prepare for action … prepare for a journey to …. Planet Hulk.
