The weather’s turning and the nights are drawing in. More stars in the sky means more space to imagine exploring… November is coming, and you all know what that means, right? If you don’t, well my friend, let me tell you about SciFi Month!
In this episode, Asala and Niko are heading for Hypatia as they follow the trail of the eponymous missing ship – but they’ve got an unexpected third party aboard their cruiser. Cue much awkwardness, and some very tense situations. Let’s discuss The Vela. Spoilers follow for this episode.
Hooray hooray, it’s a new serial day! The Vela is one of the latest new releases from Serial Box Publishing and has been on my 2019 watch list for a while, because the lineup of writers associated with it knocked my geeky socks off: SL Huang, Becky Chambers, Rivers Solomon and Yoon Ha Lee. I mean. It’s like rock star levels of writer collaboration, if you’re a modern sci-fi nerd. And I love me some modern sci-fi. So let’s dive …
NERDS! IN! SPAAAAACE! Normally I like to bury myself in fantasy over the winter season, but this January I’m making an exception for an exceptional book, with a little help from a fellow Sci-Fi Month Fleet member and all round joyful nerd, Jorie. Keep reading for more info!
Well, it is now the final day of this year’s Sci-Fi Month celebration. My recap will go live tomorrow, but for now I’ve got one more round of thoughts, feelings and general flailing excitement to share as I dive into the final part of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, following the excellent Twitter chat held on Sunday by your, my, our beloved @joriestory. CAUTION: There will be spoilers!
Well, folks. This year’s Sci-Fi Month is almost, almost over. BUT IT’S NOT QUITE OVER YET. I teamed up with my co-host, imyril, to bring you a pretty epic two-part roundtable interview with some of our favourite SF people – writers and bloggers alike! – who are here to talk about science fiction and why they love it.
It’s time for another round of Wayfarer Appreciation, as I dive into discussion of the second part of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet following our wonderful Twitter chat this past Sunday, courtesy of @joriestory! FAIR WARNING – there will be spoilers ahead! This post, and the questions, cover “The Wane” through “Hatch, Feather, House”.
Following on from Sunday afternoon/evening’s successful first Twitter chat for the Sci-Fi Month readalong for this book, I decided to recap and expand on the excellent questions put forth by @joriestory, as well as revisiting the reasons why I love this book so much. There will be spoilers aplenty, though, so if you haven’t read this book, please be warned! This post will cover the beginning through to the end of “Port Coriol”.
It’s finally time for my first Sci-Fi Month review! I feel like I’ve been slow in getting started, but I definitely started with a winner…
Hello! So this year’s #RRSciFiMonth has gotten off to an absolutely tremendous start, and while I haven’t gotten my first review in yet, plans are coming along quite neatly! Meanwhile, I’m delighted by all the Twitter activity from the rest of you guys. So much great content! Anyway, yes! On to the point of this little post…
