Review from SFRevu

I always like Sam Tomaino's reviews of Flash Fiction Online, and he's done it again for March. He also reviews other short SF/F fiction, so be sure to check him out. Thanks, Sam!

While you're there, check out the SFRevu take on Graphic Classic Volume 6, which features "Bitter Bierce". We've featured Ambrose Bierce once here (John Mortonson's Funeral) and will do it again -- he has an incredible, dark, rich sense of humor. The Graphic Classic volume provides new takes on his work, illustrated settings of his stories, and excerpts from The Devil's Dictionary. That by itself makes it worth the read.

There's more great stuff over there, of course. Check them out.

According to SF Scope, one of Octavia E. Butler's novels, Kindred, will be re-published as a graphic novel. This is the story of a modern black woman who is transported back in time periodically to the antebellum South. Here is a more complete plot synopsis of the novel. Butler is a double Hugo and Nebula award winner.

As SF Scope noted, Publishers Week gave more details of publisher Beacon's general plans for expansion into comics.
