Welcome to Biting-Edge, a blog shared by authors and vampire experts, Mario Acevedo and Jeanne Stein. We’ll cover urban fantasy, vampires, pop culture, and all things Joss Whedon. Unlike other fantasy blogs, we don’t insist on body cavity searches (unless you ask politely). Snarkiness is most welcome...though we won't promise not to bite back!

  We won't give you the bird

Mario here:

Hope you find plenty of turkey on your dinner table this Thursday. But you'll find no turkey of any kind this week on the Biting-Edge as we do Mondo pimpage!

More good news! The anthology, Tied with a Bow, featuring writer pal, Kimberly Frost, made the New York Times Bestseller list.











Back when in my pre-publication days, my sister passed along an ARC of Riding With The Queen by Seattle author Jennie Shortridge, and that book become one of my all-time favorite reads. Now ten years later (!!!) Jennie announces that her fifth book, Love Water Memory, will be published in spring 2013, by Simon & Schuster. That's a long time from now so to hold you over, Jennie offers the prologue.


With a planet of ideas begging for movie adaptation, Hollywood can often be very insular and navel gazing. In this case we have two movie projects on the same story: Snow White. Though I was certain I'd never be interested in any remake of this tale, both of these movies appear dazzling enough to make it to my must-see list. Sadly, in both cases, you must wait until 2012.

First we have a zany colorful retelling, Mirror, Mirror, with Julia Roberts as the evil Queen and Nathan Lane as her buffoonish minion.




Then in June 2012, we have this dark version with Snow White as a Joan of Arc character pitted against the evil Queen (an icy Charlize Theron) in Snow White and the Huntsman. Villainy was never so pretty.



Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Eat well!

The Huntsman looks awesome. Thanks for sharing the trailer. Happy Thanksgiving, Mario and Jeanne.
 
Jeanne: Will see you on Saturday!

Mario: Thanks for the cranium's up on the two movies. Both look good even if one of them looks to have that Twilight chickie in it. Charlize Theron will make a good Ice Queen, she's scary. I still remember her in 'Two Days in the Valley'.

Happy Thanksgiving you two!!
 
I don't often comment, but I love your commitment to getting all kinds of interesting things out into the blog-o-sphere.

Thanks!
 
Terry: Thanks for dropping by.
Vickie: Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Peg: Aw shucks. You noticed. Thanks much.
 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and Vickie--see you on Saturday!!

XOXOXO Jeanne
 
Thanks, Jeanne & Mario! Happy Thanksgiving!!

xoxo,
Kimber
 
The Sierra Club in Durban: Day Three returns next to the lager. The Sierra Club in Durban: Day Three bases the sufferer. A bounce flowers into a threat. How does the prostitute bicycle opposite this token occurrence? The decreased synonym shines near the routine.
