We’re Getting a New Lisbeth Salander: Critical Linking, March 15, 2017

Today’s Critical Linking is sponsored by Unbound Worlds’ Cage Match.


At long last, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist will be back onscreen: Sony will release The Girl in the Spider’s Web on Oct. 5, 2018.

Production on Spider’s Web — which Sony Pictures confirms will be directed by Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) — will begin in September. There will be, according to Sony, an “entirely new cast,” and a “global search” for a new Salander.

Lisbeth 3.0?


Readers committed to physical books can give a sigh of relief, as new figures reveal that ebook sales are falling while sales of paper books are growing – and the shift is being driven by younger generations.

Wonder how much this has to do with the coloring book thing.


“Jerusalem’s Lot”
Some nerd moves to a big mansion and spends his time writing Lovecraft fan fiction.

“Graveyard Shift”
If you’re an asshole to your employees, they will feed you to a giant rat queen the first chance they get.

Every Stephen King short story summarized for Twitter. Amazing.
