Women in Science Fiction & Fantasy Month has continued throughout April with so many excellent posts. Memory wrote about comics which I'm pretty into right now, and tons of authors have contributed posts. Be sure to check it out, and if you haven't yet share ten of your favorite books by women. We have over 1,000 submissions this year! :D

➝ Excellent column by Eleanor Arnason, Me and Science Fiction: What Are We, Chopped Liver? discussing women writing and how women writing and developing SF are erased from the field.

Seanan McGuire on bi erasure.

They're going to decide if Agent Carter gets a new season soon, and I'm ready for the answer to be YES, because that is the only correct answer.

This article on The Nerdist about Perlman and LeFauve being tapped to write the upcoming Captain Marvel has this quote: "Perlman is also set to write the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, and is the confirmed writer for a Black Widow solo film, which is our first official news that a Black Widow movie is something Marvel is now actively pursuing." My feelings on this: until Kevin Feige is recorded, on a camera, saying that the Black Widow film is happening out loud, I don't trust anything. There's the article going around with Scarlett Johansson, too. I DON'T TRUST THAT ONE, EITHER. FEIGE OR BUST, and he's slippery at the best of times.

Mieneke loved The Goblin Emperor, which is another win for me in my ongoing campaign to make all my friends try this book.

This article about the upcoming film The Martian is AMAZING. If this is the actual dialogue I'm putting it on the Sparkle Rocket Hugo slate.

Huge, huge yes to that article about The Martian. It sounds great. I anticipate that I will enjoy the hell out of it. My heart is warmed when people say things like "Let's go get our boy." I'm getting chills right now just writing that and YES I recognize it is a big cliche but also importantly I do not care

I need to try and finish the book, but based on what I did read I feel like this is gonna make a great, super fun space drama. :D :D I can only rewatch Europa Report and Deep Impact so many times, Hollywood!

Criticism & Debate

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
