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!

  This, That and T'other...
Using this week to catch up on a lot of media stuff I've collected over the last few weeks.  In no particular order:

From Shelf Awareness:

Sue Grafton's forthcoming Kinsey Millhone mystery, her 23rd, will be titled W IS FOR WASTED, which will be published by Putnam on September 10. Grafton made the announcement after inviting readers to guess the title, which she explained to USATODAY: "they enjoy trying to outwit me, so I thought, let's just give them a chance to participate."

Will Wheaton on Why it's Awesome to be a Nerd-- something I think even Sheldon would approve of:

From EW:
Netflix’s new horror series Hemlock Grove. The show’s new trailer positively glories in the lack of content restrictions. “The following trailer is restricted to Mature Audiences only by Netflix Inc,” reads the opening card, “for Mild Fornication, Fellatio, Heavy Cocaine Use, Lesbian Necrophilia, and Violent Hemorrhaging.”

The latest brouhaha seems to be over the "genderizing" of covers.  Huffington Post's Maureen Johnson gives some examples of "coverflip".

One of my favorite (imho, best) of the police television dramas may not be back next year. Southland consistently presented police work in an honest, factual, unflinching way that reminded me of The Shield. If you missed it, find it on Netflix or Hulu or whatever and hope, the way I do, that the powers-that-be bring it back.

Cooper to the right, back row

 
When I was growing up, my mother loved her "stories." She got me hooked on The Young and the Restless and no matter how many episodes I missed because of school or work or any of a dozen different reasons, I could turn it on and be caught up with the residents of Genoa City in a matter of minutes.

Jeanne Cooper played Katherine Chancellor for forty years. When she passed away last week, I felt as if I'd lost a friend. I'm sure my mom would have felt the same, though I have a feeling if there is any kind of after life, she and Jeanne are probably discussing story lines right now!


 
Comments:
Cover flip for Anna Strong? No way!
 
No, of course this doesn't apply to Anna!!
 
Ah, but the pose off between John Scalzi and Jim Hines as the cover of Vicki Petersen's The Taste of Night was something special. Google the images if you haven't already seen them.

It's too bad the Netflix warning was more amusing than the trailer for the series actually was. Such is life.
 
TNT broke my heart when they cancelled Southland. I loved that show, and now I'll never know if John Cooper survived that shooting. Unless you tell me. Go on. Just lie to me. Make me feel better.

Jeanne Copper was quite an amazing woman. Sorry to see her pass.
