It’s still cold (boo), but we’ve gathered some news and tidbits that will warm you right up (yay)!

Okay, there is ONE thing TECHNICALLY wrong with that, and its red-pillers and the seeming ubiquity of their Frankenstein-ed pop culture ideology.
Ah, yes, that feeling when the widespread inability to cope with the capitalist hellscape becomes a marketing tool for relating to all of us burnt out consumers of fake orange juice?????
Elsewhere in Capitalist Hell, the 2018 Authors Guild survey shows that author incomes have fallen a drastic 42% in the last decade.
Meanwhile, another film adaptation of Dune is in the works, this time by Denis Villeneuve, director of the actually-pretty-damn-good movies Blade Runner 2048 and Arrival. At Tor, Emily Asher-Perrin has some thoughts on how to handle the somewhat inherently fat- and homophobic depiction of Baron Harkonnen.
Some more exciting book-to-screen news: Michael B. Jordan is producing a film adaptation of Marlon James’s brand-new epic fantasy novel, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, a much-needed breath of fresh air for a genre that has remained overly-reliant on white European medieval trappings.
If you’ve read this far, congratulations, because we’ve saved the best for last: POME contributor Kaz Rowe has turned us on to our latest mobile game OBSESSION!
Get out there and take care of those Moomin friends!!
