The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase Greg Cox Cover

The Librarians and The Mother Goose Chase
The Librarians Book 2
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
Written by Greg Cox
Tor Books
Release Date: April 25th, 2017

Mother Goose is real. Although that should not surprise Eve Baird and her team of ragtag genius librarians, they are still able to muster some disbelief at some of the cases that the Clippings Book hands them. Three inexplicable events happen in separate areas of the world: a woman gets trapped inside a pumpkin, 3 giant rodents with no eyes attack a woman, and a man gets caught up in a fierce wind which catches him up into the sky, until he lands on a trampoline. What do these three people have in common? They appropriately lived through some real life nursery rhymes, appropriate since they are direct descendants of the real Mother Goose.

Such is the hook that ensnares us in The Librarians and The Mother Goose Chase By Greg Cox.

The Librarians and The Lost Lamp
The Librarians Book 1
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
Written by Greg Cox
Tor Books
Release Date: October 11, 2016

Aladdin’s lamp and its djinn occupant are real and sought after by The Forty. That’s right… as in Ali Baba. That is the quest our modern day Librarians are sent on, before they really know who or what they are looking for. Their Librarian recruiter, Flynn Carsen, thought he solved this case in 2006, when he ran solo (okay – with a cute little museum lady). The Forty stole the oldest copy of Scheherazade’s Arabian Nights, which held the clue to the location of the lamp. The djinn is no flashy, funny, always-ready-with-a-musical-number type of genie. This one was and is angry and oppressed, and slavering for the day when he will finally be free. Every wish puts a strain on the magical cell, and one day, one good wish will crack it open, freeing the djinn forever. You can expect mayhem and apocalypse to follow.

More below on The Librarians and The Lost Lamp by Greg Cox.

Falling Skies: Season 2

Falling Skies
Two-Hour Season 2 Premiere
Episode 2.01 “Worlds Apart” and 2.02 “Shall We Gather At The River”
Starring: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Seychelle Gabriel, Peter Shinkoda, Mpho Koaho, Colin Cunningham, Connor Jessup, Will Patton
Air Date: June 17, 2012

TNT’s science-fiction series Falling Skies is a satisfying blend of Jericho, V, and The Walking Dead, a post-apocalyptic drama that chronicles the aftermath of a cataclysmic, debilitating alien invasion.

Created by screenwriter Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) and executive producer Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies is a 21st century spin on The Spirit of ’76 – an American Revolutionary War where the oppressors are extraterrestrials. In only a matter of days, the invaders neutralized our technologies and annihilated 90 percent of the world’s population, leaving only pockets of resistance to fight back.

WonderCon 2011 Video: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Falling Skies’ Panel

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

For those who aren’t aware, the legendary Steven Spielberg has two new TV shows on the way: one is called Terra Nova and involves dinosaurs, while the other is set after aliens have invaded our planet. The alien invasion show is called Falling Skies, and a panel was held during WonderCon 2011 this weekend to show off some clips and talk about what to expect.

The show works somewhat in the way that The Walking Dead does — taking place six months after the alien invasion, it follows humanity’s fight to survive and not the invasion itself. At the center of it all is a history professor in Boston named Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) who has extensive knowledge of military tactics, and must use this knowledge as a leader of the resistance after his wife is killed in the attacks and one of his sons taken by the extraterrestrials.

Continue on below now to check out some highlights from the Falling Skies panel. You can also head on over to TNT to read a web comic for the show and learn much more about it.

Trailer For Steven Spielberg-Produced Sci-Fi TV Series ‘Falling Skies’ Released

The Movie God   |  @   |

The first trailer for the new TNT alien invasion TV series, Falling Skies, has been released online.

The show is executive produced by none other than Steven Spielberg, and tells the story of human survivors banding together after a devastating alien attack on our planet. Nothing is the same or ever will be again, but these survivors need to find a way to work together and learn the weaknesses of the invading species so that they may fight back and rebuild civilization.

The show certainly looks like it could be a hybrid of Skyline and Spielberg’s War of the Worlds remake, but fans of sci-fi may be interested in giving it a try when Falling Skies arrives in June of 2011.

You can read a lengthy synopsis and see the trailer for yourself by clicking over now, and you can also read a companion web comic by heading over to TNT’s website.
