Sad article on one writer's experience with the financial realities of a career in writing. Like acting, and music, it's a tough business to make a living at but as long as you embrace that you can stick with it.
The author reflects on the challenges of pursuing a career in writing, and the attendant risks he feels he and many writers can no longer afford to take.

Best article on DC's Harley Quinn ever  written
Is she even more of a female icon than Wonder Woman?

Great article on the art and design that went into the tech for Jupiter Ascending: http://io9.com/jupiter-ascendings-spaceship-designs-are-even-cooler-th-1684331706 #tech #scifi
