So I am in the midst of revamping. But in the meantime, here’s a grab-bag of some links and news:
A) SFF Writer and translator Ken Liu just got a very nice adaptation deal on some of his work.
B) Nike and Boeing are planning future products using science fiction writers.
C) A look at scavenger capitalism and how it’s actually been the big retail killer of retail, including bookstores.
D) Two interesting pieces, one with connection to a podcast interview and the other a Twitter thread essay focused on Judy-Lynn Del Rey, about women in SF in the past.
E) Apparently, the original comics version of The Walking Dead is about to be brought to a close with its next issue.
F) Award-winning, best-selling novelist Michael Chabon is not only writing episodes for Star Trek: Picard, CBS’ new Trek spin-off series, he’s now going to be the show-running producer.
I went to see Captain Marvel last night in a packed 3D glasses theater full of people of all ages. In front of us were a line of young boys who were mega excited throughout, one of whom proclaimed it the best after we finally got to the ends credit scene. It was altogether uber enjoyable and cemented Sam Jackson’s status as a national treasure. Brie Larson and her supporting cast were awesome, including the cat. And flying sequences usually bore me, but these were pretty good.
And all the frothers’ anti-equality frothing came to nothing, which is because they are a teeny slice of political activists and Russian bots. Higher. Further. Faster, indeed.
