On his personal Tumblr, author Joe Hill premiered "Locke & Key" artist Gabriel Rodriguez's cover for the limited edition of Hill's new novel "NOS4A2." "NOS4A2" is Hill's take on the vampire tale and centers on a bad dude named Charlie Manx who takes children for a ride to the mysterious Christmasland in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith. The title of the book refer's to Manx's vanity license plate...NOS4A2, get it?

I thought that in commemoration of acclaimed fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday, it'd be fun to take a look at some of the Internet memes based on him and his creations. (Also, I communicate largely by Internet memes alone, though you've probably never heard of it.)

First let's look at memes based directly on Tolkien. The most popular in this category is:

Author Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's comic-apocalyptic novel "Jam" pokes fun at military-industrial incompetence, an over-saturation of hipster irony, and the corporate hive mind--all pretty soft targets for the usually sharp and funny writer. Unfortunately, given its broadsides against such dull unworthies, a lead character who's a quivering moral vacuum (although that's not a bad thing in and of itself), and a weirdly languorous structure, this story of the carnivorous strawberry jam that ate Brisbane never really does justice to the absurdity of that pitch.

Japanese author Project Itoh's sci-fi novel Genocidal Organ envisions a future where a mix of therapy and drugs allows soldiers to be inoculated against the horrors of combat, allowing them to drop into global hotspots using hybrid bio-mechanical ships. The author's work here (real name, Satoshi It?) scratches at the future of combat, a world where the war on terror won't end--can't end, while the increasingly damaged men and women on the frontlines become incapable of dealing with life away from the field of duty.

For anyone who's had the chance to read the late author's Metal Gear Solid 4 novelization, you'll find some parallels between that adaptation of the Kojima Productions game series' paranoia about the war being franchised and commercialized, but without the benefit of a hero as charismatic as Solid Snake. Instead, we've got the hopelessly damaged and disconnected career Special Forces man Clavis Shepherd, and in lieu of a series of increasingly bizarre super-soldiers, his battle is with a man whose very presence can set off waves of genocide in a country.

Having worked for the publishing companies Scholastic and Harcourt, Eileen Robinson knows her way around the publishing world, but she was dismayed by a lack of books aimed at boys. This led her to create Move Books, a publishing house dedicated to delivering topnotch MG fiction aimed to get boys excited about reading (though the books will entertain female and older readers as well). Move Books’ first title, a fantasy called "The Mapmaker’s Sons", is being released October 26 and promises prophecies, pirates and a map that comes alive. Robinson and V.L. Burgess, the author of "The Mapmaker’s Sons", spoke to MTV Geek more about their endeavor, what sort of fantasy we can expect, and if Move Books will have similar titles down the line. Read More...
