Five SFF Books Set in the City of Light
Parisadrift crop

I spent eighteen months after university working in Paris, and ever since then the City of Light and the fiction it inspires have been close to my heart. Paris has always been a magnet for artists, both celebrated and struggling. Perhaps most famous were the glitterati visitors of the early twentieth century: Hemingway, the Scott Fitzgeralds...

Ten years ago, all J.J. Abrams’ company Bad Robot had to do was tweet a date (1/18/08) and a poster with something lurking over New York City, and fans were hooked months before the found-footage sci-fi movie came out. But while the past decade has seen two more installments ostensibly existing in the same Cloverfield mythos, each one...

Sleeps With Monsters: The Women of Black Panther Are Amazing
Black panther women

Seeing Black Panther was an experience. It’s a gorgeous film, with a strong storyline and probably the tightest narrative I’ve yet seen in a superhero film.* The Afrofuturism of the setting—technology so advanced it may as well be magic, tied to what’s clearly a long historical tradition—is a glittering vision** of possibility, undercut w...

How Netflix is Changing Science Fiction (Beyond Big Marketing Gimmicks)

It’s a reread of books I loved as a child and a teen. That means it’s subjective. It’s about how I reacted then, and whether that reaction is the same now, or w...

Terminal Alliance by Jim C Hines
Terminal Alliance, the first book in Jim C Hines’ new Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse series, can be summed up in one word: fun. It’s a humorous take on military science fiction, a departure from his previous fantasy novels. I’ve read Hines’ rather excellent Magic Ex Libris series so seeing him turn his hand to my… www.sffworld.com/2018/02/te...
