Harper’s Bazaar says Sam is “on the cusp of superstardom.” We agree.
Inside Episode 306 – the script, Matt Roberts’ photos, the set. Lots of fascinating info!
Variety interviewed Ron Moore about the show and this week’s episode.
Very thoughtful article from Buzzfeed on race stereotypes in Voyager, and how the show recreated Joe Abernathy and Mr. Willoughby.
Sony interview with Matt Roberts about A. Malcolm
This past weekend, fans got together in Vancouver, Canada to meet David Berry and Gaelic consultant Adhamh O’Broin! The event, Outlandish Vancouver, is held at the same time as the Surrey Writers Conference, which Diana Gabaldon frequently attends. Diana then does a public book signing. Outlandish Vancouver is organized by my close friend, Koko Pipkin, assisted by Samantha Kraupner and Gina Phipps-Hubbel (of the Sasnak City event in April). Attendees had the opportunity to go to a special dinner with David and Adhamh, hear each one of them speak individually and then together, get autographs and photos, enjoy small meet and greet parties, and then go to Diana’s signing later on in the weekend. Koko was thrilled to be able to introduce David to Diana – the two had not met before! (photos courtesy Koko Pipkin and Sam Kraupner)
The Twitter Tweets
We had two Twitter Q&As this weekend – #AsktheFrasers with Sam and Caitriona; and #OutlanderALN (About Last Night), with Maril and Toni. Click on the links for the transcriptions of each. If you’ve missed other Twitter chats, you can see the transcriptions here on Three if By Space – go to my Outlander FB page, and click on Notes for a complete list of all of the Twitter Q&As AND my exclusive interviews!

The 25th Anniversary Edition of Dragonfly in Amber is out! Diana signed 2,000 copies of the book at the Poisoned Pen, and will be doing a special signing event on Nov. 5. Have you bought yours yet, either from Poisoned Pen or elsewhere? I have to get mine ordered! To order yours, call The Poisoned Pen at 480-947-2974.
New Outlander items at Target! A set of 2 pint glasses ($9.99) and a metal water bottle ($14.99) were seen at some Target stores this week! Not all stores have them – yet, we hope. The glasses can be found on the Target.com website – search Outlander and they’ll come up, and check the store listing to see if the store near you has them. The water bottle does not show up online.
I know a lot of you are also Doctor Who fans – did you see this week’s announcement of new cast members?
Channel Zero is coming back – what came out this week about season 3?
There’s More to Life
I took a break from Outlander this morning, and went to make some fused glass jewelry. I’ve been having a lot of fun with this! Do you have any creative hobbies? I’d love to see photos of what you do, Outlander-inspired or not! Feel free to send me photos via Facebook (Erin Adams Conrad) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I may use them in a future issue of The Gab!
