This week’s writing links include the return of Jurassic Park, the pending release of J.J. Abrams’ novel ‘S’, a rumor that Benedict Cumberbatch might be up for a Star Wars role, io9’s September Book Club for Max Barry’s ‘Lexicon’ and nostalgic Redwall quotes from reddit.
J.J. Abrams debuted an odd sci-fi trailer titled ‘Stranger’ a few weeks ago, which was being pegged as another one of his secret projects, most likely a TV show from his company Bad Robot. Today, it was revealed that the project is actually a book that Abrams has been developing with writer Doug Dorst (Alive in Necropolis) called ‘S’. Not much is known about the book outside of its release date (October 29) and that it will have an unorthodox setup (not surprising) including notes written in the margin and other oddities like a scribbled on cocktail napkin wedged between the pages. Should be interesting.
