It's hard to believe it's almost 2022. Anywho, here's a wish for you. May your TBR be plentiful. May your reads be five-stars. May the science fiction flourish and the fantasy contain dragons. May the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ authors get the same or better marketing as the whyte epic fantasy authors. May the fields and … Continue reading Upcoming SFF, January-March 2022
It's been...quite some time since I've done a Sci Fi Friday post, and since I've been reading a hell of a lot of fantasy recently, and posted a list of books for reluctant readers, I started thinking about gateway books for one of my favorite genres: Fantasy. Specifically, fantasy novels targeted towards adults. This topic … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: Falling in love with fantasy
I don't know about you, but there are so many amazing SFF books being released this quarter that I just don't know what to do! There are so many to read, and so little time! These are the ones that I'm most excited to read, although there are quite a few more being released. My … Continue reading Upcoming SFF, October-December 2021
While July and August are kinda slow release-wise (for SFF books I'm interested in, anyway—there are a lot of big name authors releasing stuff these months, who I don't particularly care for, and then a bunch of contemporary romance authors for whom I do care), September is promising to kick off a fantastic fall release … Continue reading Upcoming SFF Jul-Sep 2021
Ha. I almost typed Pride Moth and you know, I could totally work with that. A big rainbow-colored moth blazing holes of justice and equality throughout the world and in all things cashmere, its only kryptonite bright lights, the sun, and moth balls. I've already done posts kinda similar to this one, with Sapphics in … Continue reading Queer Indie SFF Recs for Pride!
A repost of this bad girl, because this month (and this move) has murdered my blogging abilities. Sapphics in spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace. I am so happy with publishing over the past couple of years, because not only have there been quite a few wlw science fiction and fantasy releases, but many of them (well, the ones I … Continue reading Sci Fi REPOST Friday: Sapphics in Space (and Across Time)
May is National Asian-Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and while this is a US-national month, I'd like to focus on Asian and Pacific Islander authors from all over the world as well as in the US. Asian hate crimes and attacks have been on the rise over the past year, particularly attacks on elders and women. … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: 30+ SFF Books by Asian and Pacific Islander Authors
The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever. Today is Space Day! And it's a Friday! Once upon a time, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut—probably like a lot of other kids. I was obsessed with space. I knew the planets, the moons, I learned as much as … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: Space Day Recommendations
I'm well on my way with my Vorkisigan series reread! Instead of overwhelming you all with a looooooong review on each book in the series, I'll try to break them up in to mini reviews every three books (key word: try). This is my absolute most favoritist (totally a word) series in the entire world, … Continue reading Three Mini Vorkisigan Reviews!
Nope, that's not a typo. Today I'm going to highlight some f/f fantasy! In a strange twist of wtf-how-did-they-find-that, a couple weeks ago Angry Robot tweeted my blog post Sapphics in Space (and Across Time), which was a wild day because my blog went a little haywire. I had over twice as many views/visitors in … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: Phenomenal F-F-Fantasy
