Xena and Gabrielle in Top 10 Female Fantasy Characters

ImageSciencefiction.com has a list of the top 10 female fantasy characters and topping that list is Xena at #1 and #8 is Gabrielle.

There are many great female fantasy characters, and I am sure some favorites are not on this list. I focused on leaders, on characters who demonstrated strength and authority, and on those who left a lasting impression on me. If you think I have left a character off this list, please let me know who and why a certain character should be on this list.

For this list, characters from traditional fantasy, supernatural, and paranormal works are included.

Infinity To Be Shown At 2012 ITN Distribution Film and Webisode Festival April 2012

What is Infinity About?

Elizabeth enjoys the perfect life. A perfect home. A perfect 4 year old daughter, Chelsea. A perfect loving husband, David. Even a kind but quirky next door neighbor, Edith, who keeps apprised of all matters, great or small, in her community. But, something is amiss. David seems troubled since returning from a tour of duty with his guard unit in Iraq. Struggling alone, his resolve breaks as he turns to a higher power for help, leading to a stint in a mental facility. Elizabeth carries on, projecting a brave face, to shield Chelsea from a reality the four year old couldn't possibly understand. But, in Poe-esque tradition, bad things happen to good people as this perfect life unravels in the blink of an eye. This tale spirals downward from the unthinkable to the even darker unknown depths of the unimaginable. What if, the eyes truly are the windows to the soul?

Beyond The Farthest Star Post Production News

From AUSXIP Reporter Gabsfan: Post production for BTFS is moving right along.  They just announced the visual effects team that will be working on the film.  This same VFX team has worked on Batman, Spiderman and John Adams, just to name a few.

The announcement and a video showing their VFX work has been posted to the BTFS Facebook page:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beyond-the-Farthest-Star/170290344732?sk=wall

The announcement on FB also answers my question of, "What would a VFX team that worked on action films like Spiderman be doing for a drama like BTFS?"

Beyond The Farthest Star Novel On Amazon.com

Image634667465671552735

From AUSXIP Reporter Gabsfan:

The novel based on the screenplay for BEYOND THE FARTHEST STAR is now available on Amazon (and I'm sure other places too).  On Amazon, you can get the paperback or Kindle version.  You can also get an Audible audio version.

Amazon has some interesting reviews AND you can read the first few pages of the book.  Spoiler Alert - One of the reviews and the pages you can read (and hear) have a spoiler.  At least it seemed like a plot point spoiler to me after the speculating discussion we had here after seeing the clip from the BTFS website of the emotional Renee scene that obviously takes place at a crime scene.
