Actor-Turned-Author Evangeline Lilly Spins A Spooky Illustrated Story For Kids With ‘The Squickerwonkers’ [Interview]

Evangeline Lilly is a familiar name to sci-fi and genre fans – she broke into Hollywood's major leagues playing Kate Austen in Lost, she was the female lead in 2011's supremely fun Rocky-meets-Rock 'Em Sock 'Em flick Real Steel, and most recently, she's risen to new heights of fame for her role as elven warrior Tauriel in Peter Jackson's Hobbit films.

But while she's best known for on-camera appearances, acting is merely one of facet of her creative impulse. Lilly's first authorial effort is premiering at San Diego Comic-Con this week: a creepy crawly children's picture book entitled The Squickerwonkers, that tells a story-in-verse of a terrible child and the puppet people she encounters and antagonizes. It's a quick and delightfully dark read, illustrated in at once unsettling and beautiful fashion by WETA designer Johnny Fraser-Allen – and thanks to the fine folks at Titan Books, we recently had the opportunity to speak with Lilly about the long and convoluted path that this tale has taken on the road to publication.

Bah! The only thing that used to come close to the seat-of-your-pants, moment-to-moment excitement of George R.R. Martin's fantasy series is the "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" novels of our youth.

Man Somehow Steals More Than 1,100 Books from Libraries

There are all sorts of taboo fetishes out there that can eventually catch up with a person and force the proverbial hammer of the law to come swinging down something rotten, spoiling all of the fun.

That is exactly what happened to a 61-year-old man who Japanese police say stole nearly 1,100 library books to satisfy what appears to be a mean case of kleptomania combined with an intense passion for the bound literary word.

University of Montana Students Can Save Money on Textbooks

The long list of student fees tacked on to most college tuition bills is enough to make any student scream. When I was enrolled at The University of Montana, it seemed like fees were being added or increased every single semester, and I will be the first to admit that half of the time, I didn’t even know what I was paying for
