JJ Abrams is joining WarnerMedia to create “remarkable and memorable stories and characters across multiple platforms”.

Can our self-conscious minds save us from our selfish selves? (Aeon)

Scootsa1000 is revisiting Stephen King’s first novel, Carrie. Even though the reader knows the end at the beginning, King still builds his now trademark dread that things will be much worse. "Thanks to Tabitha King for taking it out of the garbage and making Uncle Stevie take another look at it." Are there books that you think you know a lot about even though you’ve never read them?
