The Expanse Returns for Season 3 With “Fight or Flight”
Expanse 3x1 naomi

Last year, The Expanse got a double-episode season premiere — and it really could we have used one this time around too. The way the show lets its narrative bleed from one season to another means that there’s never any downtime, and no need to ramp back up again, when a new season starts; we’re still in the thick of it, and the “it,” right ...

Stop the Hogwarts House Hate: Hufflepuffs and Slytherins are Great, Too
Potter sortinghat

When J.K. Rowling first revealed that Harry and Ginny’s son, James Sirius Potter, had been sorted into Gryffindor, she also noted that Teddy Lupin—son of Remus and Tonks, and the Head Boy of Hufflepuff House—was disappointed by the hat’s decision. Teddy’s disappointment ...

Review: Embers of War by Gareth L. Powell
After being tantalised by one (action packed) chapter at the British Fantasy Society’s FantasyCon two years ago, Embers of War topped my WANT list. Publishing is slow. I’m familiar with Powell’s shorter work thanks to Interzone, but I’ve not read all his Ack-Ack Macaque series. Yes I’m aware of the comparisons between Ian M Banks,… www.sffworld.com/2018/04/re...

Catch Nnedi Okorafor, Annalee Newitz, and Ken Liu on James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction!
James cameron tor authors

James Cameron has a lot of questions about science fiction—big ones, like How will the world end? and Will technology destroy us? and What does it mean to be human? While he has explored many of these existential quandaries in films from The Terminator to Avatar, now the filmmaker is coming at these questions a different way: For

Villainesses Required: Why the Dark Side Needs More Women
Thorragnarok hela01

I love villains. I really, really do. In all of their sneering, cackling, impeccably dressed glory.

I’m lucky to be a fan of genre fiction, the home of some of the best villains in popular culture. The ultimate villains—supervillains—are the children of genre fiction. The archetypal Dark Lord is most at home glowering down from spe...

“I’m not the bad guy” — Daredevil
Daredevilmovie 01

Daredevil was created in 1964 by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, based on a character design by Jack Kirby. DD has one of the more ingenious superhero disguises, as his secret identity is a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock. Thanks to the early-Marvel catch-all of radiation = super-powers, young Matt was blinded by a radioactive canister, but his ...

Gallows Superstitions and the Bodies of the Condemned
Hanging callot

While writing my steampunk murder mysteries, I read a lot about dead bodies and hangings. Gallows superstitions—those associated with executions—were rife in Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Got a hanged man’s corpse? Don’t know what to do now?

Here are a few ideas from the pages of history:
