the ultimate ICYMI for 2019

Posted on: December 29, 2019

I wrote some cool blog posts this year.  Consider this post the ultimate “in case you missed it” link post to my fave blog posts that I wrote this year.  If you’re new to my blog (hi!), these posts will tell you everything you need to know about my writing style, my “brand” (HAHAHA! brand! omg, that’s hilarious), and the types of things I like to talk about.


These are posts I wrote in 2019 that I am most proud of:


halfway through reading Connie Willis’s Blackout, I wrote this post, in which Hans Zimmer music, well timed naps, and tense scenes collide.


To celebrate SciFi Month in November, I recommended a bunch of my favorite first contact stories.


You can’t talk about first contact without talking about language and communication, so I had a blast getting all thinky about China Mieville’s Embassytown. Also? I am a little obsessed with language and communication.


Had a bucket-list moment when I found myself in the same room as an Astronaut.  Note to self: get on the mailing list of your local Community College!


I may have thought a little too much about Star Trek: Discovery.  Still scared shitless of Jason Isaacs.


I had a really visceral reaction to Derek Kunsken’s abso-fucking-lutely brilliant novel The Quantum Magician.  Oh, you wanted to read my review for that book? here you go.


You loved the tv show GLOW, right?  and you love Steven Brust’s Vlad Taltos books? hey guess what? they are connected!

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
