Wandering the Web [5]

8 September, 2010

A variety of interesting  bits of information that I have encountered recently.  Hope you find them as intriguing and useful as I have.

How the Terror Bird killed its prey, this makes me think of the axe beak from the original Monster Manual.

Athena cover

Athena: the Grey-Eyed Goddess by George O'Connor

A wonderful set of graphic novels retelling the tales of the Olympians by George O’Connor.  Which I found both well drawn and well researched.  So far volumes for Zeus and Athena have been released with Hera’s legends and stories the next one scheduled.

Lost Persian Army found in the sands of Egypt, you would think it would be difficult to lose an entire army for 2,500 years.

Terraforming in microscale, Charles Darwin’s ecological experiment on Ascension isle.  Sometimes it is amazing what can be done just by attempting it.

Sci-Fi Airshow takes spacecraft and airplanes from SF shows of the past and treats them as if they had actually been built.  Complete with service histories and ‘where are they now’ sections.
