f scott fitzgerald christmas tree

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Christmas tree is a little terrifying.


Potterphiles, rejoice: J.K. Rowling is working on a play about Harry Potter, to hit British stages within the next two years.

The play will focus on his life before he attended the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and as Rowling said in a statement, “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast.”



In recent years, science fiction has gone mainstream, with a good portion of books and television programs dedicated to telling stories of future worlds and things that may or may not happen.

Now, a group of science fiction fanatics have plans to open a museum dedicated to the realm of the imagination, aimed at comprehensively cataloging the books, stories, and movie props from its history in downtown Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C. gets a science fiction museum!
