It was another good week for news and reviews within the fantasy and scifi genres — and we’ve got a summary of all of the happenings on Lytherus. Doctor Who stole the show over the past week as we broke set videos and images from the upcoming Christmas Special, as well as reviewed the final two episodes of the series; new books were announced in the “Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel” and “Fallen” series; Amazon announced the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet; Pottermore beta announces some bad news; and more! We also have this month’s “October Game Releases” list available (and it’s a good month!), in addition to our hilarious and entertaining “Weekend Web” column and our “Weekly Anime News Update”.
On top of all of that, we review a number of awesome content — including The Night Circus (Book), The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Book), new episodes of Supernatural (TV), Hanna (Movie), Devil (Movie), A Game of Thrones (Comics), Abe Sapien, Angels of Faith, Aquaman, Hawkman, and The Flash (all Comics)!
