So, with the hopes that they will be just as entertaining -- and precisely as truthful -- as they were yesterday, here are some stories from this notable holiday:
- Warren Buffet announces "Tax It Forward" movement
- Amazon.com achieves sentience, takes over governance of the corporation, and so forth
- SFWA's battle for the Nebula Award takes an unlikely turn in 2018
- Margaret Atwood's new SF magazine to launch
Update 1: IDW, not quite getting how this works, sent out a release a few days before April 1to say that the popular 1962 Topps card set Mars Attacks! (and the subsequent, not nearly as popular, Tim Burton film) would be turned into a Broadway musical, and then took it back on the 1st. As Jas. Hook would say: bad form.
Update 2: There seems to be substantially less frivolity than prior years; the weekend has dampened more than my spirits:
- Cheryl Morgan uncovers a betting scandal among Clarke judges
- John Scalzi's epic fantasy trilogy Shadow War of the Night Dragon to be adapted into manga
- The shocking truth of how every plot detail of the second season of Game of Thrones was leaked
- When Jane Austen met Robert E. Howard
- Jay Lake turns to nurse novels for his next project
- Scott Lynch picks a feud with John Scalzi
- Jo Walton reviews Oscar!, in which Grouch meets Wilde
- The amazing Lego Brick Sorter
- ...and there were so many variant XKCD comics that it took Reddit to keep track of them all.
