Some Nerd News For You Today

Three pieces of sci-fi news in my Google Reader grabbed my attention this morning.

The first is that John Williams is turning 79 today. Don’t know who John Williams is? Well you’ve heard his music, even if you don’t realize it. He has worked on the soundtracks for Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark and even Harry Potter!

The second is that Jeri Ryan has confirmed that she will reprise her roll as Sonya Blade in the upcoming Mortal Kombat webseries and movie.

And finally, as you have probably seen from the Google homepage, today is Jules Verne’s birthday.

He is perhaps the most famous science fiction author of all time and deserves all the attention he is getting.
