Science Fiction and Fantasy Mini-Reviews: Binti, Paper Girls, and A Wrinkle in Time

Binti: The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor

I enjoyed this last Binti story just as much as the previous two.  Okorafor has created a fascinating world with an interesting clash of cultures and species.  832 more words

Review of The Dream of the Iron Dragon by Robert Kroese

In many ways, this book has it all: space, aliens, time travel, and medieval Vikings.  Robert Kroese’s book tells a story that is a lot of fun to read, and pays a lot of attention to the details, both modern and historical. 558 more words

Review Requests And ARCs

Review of Crosstalk by Connie Willis

I had mixed feelings about this book, although I can tell you that I read long into the night to finish it up (most books, even very good ones, put me to sleep pretty quickly). 529 more words


Review of Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich

This was a fascinating book, and one I recommend it if you’re looking for something like The Handmaid’s Tale (appropriate on this Women’s March weekend).  Erdrich’s book is set in the near future, where instead of environmental catastrophe, mankind is facing a different threat: life has begun to evolve backwards, and no one can tell what the future of humanity might be.  585 more words


Science Fiction and Fantasy Mini-Reviews: Octavia Butler, N.K. Jemisin, and V.E. Schwab

Last month I read the final book in two trilogies, and I began a new one (that is really an old one).  I’ll start with the new one. 1,024 more words

Charlie Jane Anders: All the Birds in the Sky

Anders, Charlie Jane (2016), All the Birds in the Sky, Tor
ISBN 978-0-7653-7995-5

So I love science fiction. And nothing bums me out more when a book or text or movie is marred by a lack of imagination or a conservatism that is both boring and extremely reactionary.
