SciFi Month 2017 is off to a flying start with blog posts, podcasts, booktubes and bookstagrams coming in thick and fast. It’s tricky keeping up, but I wanted to showcase some of the contributions so far…
There’s nothing we like so much as sharing the things we love best:
- Deanna’s Sci Fi Month Quiz giveaway – show off your SF knowledge! [worldwide, closes Nov 30th]
- Mogsy at The Bibliosanctum has a gorgeous hard copy of Star Wars: Stormtroopers: Beyond the Armor to give away to one lucky winner [US only, closes Nov 15th]
- Christina asked who are the Worst Fathers of Sci Fi and Fantasy?
- Lisa and Christina brought us interviews with authors K C Alexander and Julian Fernandes
- Sarah at The Illustrated Page put together Ten SF books with queer leads
- Kai at Fiction State of Mind and Tammy at Bones, Books, Buffy have been thinking about Teen and Young Adult SciFi Reads
- Avalinah explored hopeful Sci Fi while Olivia at Yellow Shelfpaper started a series on options for the Sci Fi wary
- KJ Mulder presents the now-traditional Cover Conundrum (yes KJ, twice counts). How many can you spot?
The backbone of every Sci Fi Month, the reviews are coming in thick and fast! It’s impossible to cover everything but so far we’ve seen plenty of enthusiasm for Andy Weir’s Artemis (out this week!), much attention given to Star Wars (of course!), mixed reviews for Thor: Ragnarok and a first chomp through some of the classics. And much to my delight, there’s lots of love for sci fi from different perspectives and around the world. Follow @scifimonth on Twitter for a complete guide to everything that’s been going on.
The Expanse read-along continues with Babylon’s Ashes – if you haven’t started the series yet, you really do want to read them in order (and don’t read our posts, because ALL THE SPOILERS) – but if you have, come laugh at our flailing and outrage as we barrel through the blockbuster space opera each week.
…I’ll be back with another round-up next week (because this would be way easier if I did it more often. What can I say, the first half of the month got away from me a bit!)
