More and more data is pouring in from our SF expeditions, and though I am late in presenting the findings, let’s get caught up on what the crew provided last week!
First up, our weekly features!
- Music Monday – Maxine highlighted some classic Elton John (can you guess which song?), while Lauren went for some SF instrumental pieces by Philipp Klein
- Wednesday – SJ Higbee featured Tim Pratt’s upcoming novel for Can’t Wait Wednesday, while Mogsy picked a Dan Frey title for Waiting on Wednesday; and for WWW Wednesday, Maxine gives us a peek at what’s currently on her plate, and what’s next
- Friday – Lauren featured KC Alexander’s Necrotech for Friday 56/Book Beginnings, while we got a tasty trio of Friday Face-Off treats from Mogsy, Tammy and SJ Higbee
Mayri also took up the Six Degrees of SFnal Separation baton; Tammy got starry-eyed (heh) as she presented a selection of SF books with “Star” in the title (there are quite a few!); Tammy gave us another Future Fiction feature, and Crini offered up a cover reveal for the upcoming KB Wagers novel Hold Fast Through The Fire!
There’s also a nice long list of … well, lists, as well as some choice discussion posts for our third week of adventures!
Alex asked the age-old question, “Is there anyone out there?”, by taking us on a wonderful tour of space, complete with advertisements; Jess revisited a previous opinion piece to discuss a bit further why she doesn’t enjoy time travel in SF; and Joanna highlighted some Polish science fiction she’d love to see translated!
Susy presented a list of SF books she really wants to read; imyril looked at some 2020 debut SF novels for Top Ten Tuesday; Maddalena turned her attention to generation ships for Tuesday’s challenge prompt; Mogsy featured AI and robot protagonists for Sci-5 Tuesday; Lauren got cosy with some Sci-Fi Pets; and Annemieke looked back over the last year to bring us some SF she’d recommend since Sci-Fi Month 2019 ended.
Alex put together another discussion post, this time focusing on SF Golden Oldies, and also offered up a list of pandemic-related SF movies (watch if you’re feeling up to it!); Louise made the case for why she loves Superman; Amanda looked at science fiction that makes her nostalgic, and also discussed her favourite tropes in science fiction.
That’s it for my round-up this week, but as always – if there’s anything I missed that didn’t make it into the schedule, feel free to let me know! Excellent work, crewmates – keep it up, and onward to our final voyage…
