Ashes to Ashes (the UK sequel to Life on Mars) airs on BBC America starting March 7th. SciFi Wire and Futon Critic have sneak peeks at the show.

SciFi Wire has a clip from Eureka, showing the new character.

Distance Learning Net has a list of the Top 100 Science Fiction Blogs. There are some really good ones there, some I've never seen, and generally way too many for me to keep track of regularly.

The latest issue of StarShipSofa has free audio fiction by Ken MacLeod (and others).

Fox is planning a movie version of The A-Team, to be produced by Ridley and Tony Scott. I actually enjoyed the series back in the 80s (in a sort of dumb fun way), but I think this is going to be BAD.

The US Postal Service is considering switching to a 5-day delivery schedule instead of 6 (although Saturday may not be the day dropped).

Someone who has read more of the listed books than I have rants that the recent 1000 Books Everyone Must Read (and especially the SF/F books on the list) is a bad list. I agree. Just from the ones I know, there are quite a few missing, and some of the ones that are there are miscategorized or just not necessary for "everyone".

The annual Year's Best Fantasy and Horror anthology has come to an end. See comments at Bibliophile Stalker, TOR, and Locus.

io9 has a clip from a new BBC3 comedy called Being Human, about a vampire, werewolf and ghost who share an apartment in Bristol. has an article about stretchable electronics.

CNet Crave shows we are one step closer to teleportation. Time has an article about this too.
