Hi there, everyone! I’m taking a partial deviation from my normal content to discuss out current major issue: the fact that a pandemic is occurring right outside our very doors. While we’ve all learned about the basic measures we can take as individuals to help prevent the spread, I’m hoping to highlight a few key points that have been less publicized here. Also included are resources to share with your friends and family who may not understand why COVID-19 is such a problem and may need a bit of convincing to begin social distancing. … More Virtual r/Fantasy Con, COVID-19 News, and a Few Cozy Book Recommendations!
What an absolutely amazing month in the SF&F world! It’s impossible for me to read every new book that comes out, alas, but of the ones I did manage to sneak in this month we had two major stand outs: Among Others by Jo Walton and Queen of the Conquered by Kacen Callender. … More November Reading Wrap-Up
Happy Halloween, all! I hope everyone had a great time either dressing up, seeing all the kiddos dressed up, or simply indulging in a wide variety of candy and other treats.

September was sure an interesting ride. We had a few stand outs – namely, The Bone Ships by RJ Barker, Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir, and The Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes…. all sandwiched in between a few books that didn’t quite hit that sweet spot for me. Both Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and The Miracles of Namiya General Store by Keigo Higashino were near-misses and had quite a few aspects I enjoyed greatly even if they didn’t pull together in the way I might have hoped. The Resurrectionist of Caligo, however, didn’t work for me at all on nearly any level – though I think the author duo behind it shows promise and may well improve in future works. … More September Reading Wrap-Up
August was fantastic, and September looks to be even better. Stand-outs include The Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes, To Be Taught if Fortunate by Becky Chambers, and a host of other wonderful books! … More August Reading Wrap-Up
Hello all! July was an interesting month. We had a few books that knocked it out of the park, and ended with two that really, really didn’t. Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston, the Cradle series by Will Wight, and Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang were the stand-outs this month, each of them a cut above when it came to being either interesting, fun, or just plain heartwarming. … More July Reading Wrap-Up
