An examination of the state of the manga industry in the wake of the March 11 disaster in Japan.

A hand-illuminated, hand-bound copy of the Silmarillion.

A digital database to give official identification across the population of India.

A lavishly illustrated guide to mythical beasts found (in sculpture form) around Tokyo.

A fan-created storyboard for an animated Wicked movie…by an actual Disney animator. Admittedly, the actual book is so not Disney fare, but then neither are most of the fairy tales they managed to make family-friendly.

Much-deserved praise for Animorphs, and an ongoing, once-a-week reread.

AIDS research aided by gamers. Behold the power of geek. (I have the automated version of this program on my computer, using background processing power whenever it’s free: World Community Grid.)
