I have watched the new Star Wars cartoon three times now. Why three? It is fantastic. It’s Disney’s first real Star Wars project since acquiring Lucasfilm; if this project is any indication, I have serious hope for Star Wars Rebels and fair to middling hope for Episode VII (because Abrams).

Lately I’ve been dipping into the world of Doctor Who comics with both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, and now I’ve read the brand new releases from Titan Comics: Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #1 and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1, which are such outstanding first issues that I am already itching for the collected volume.

This isn’t a definitive list of women of color in film. This isn’t a “best of” list, or a list of the most complicated or progressive characters in science-fiction or fantasy. This is simply a list of women of color in science-fiction and fantasy films. I tried to make it as full as possible, but ultimately had to decide on … Read More

Women of Science Fiction: Lois McMaster Bujold’s Falling Free

...sneakotageBooks3 Comments

grandma

I had been meaning to check out Lois McMaster Bujold’s sci-fi novels for a couple of years (because I really enjoyed her Sharing Knife fantasy series), but my local libraries and bookstores never had the straight-run of her popular Vorkosigan Saga novels.

Women of Science Fiction: Anne McCaffrey’s The Ship Who Sang

...sneakotageBooks5 Comments

grandma

I wanted to write reviews of science fiction written by women, and I thought I’d start off with a classic. Anne McCaffrey’s The Ship Who Sang is extremely readable sci-fi. It is perhaps a bit light on the science; this may be a good thing, since what science it does have is a little dated and as a result just … Read More

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.
