Mythologizing July
For July, we're going to take a look at modern mythology - a special type of retold tale! Retold tales in general are a neat genre - they take familiar and important stories, ones that have already had a great deal of impact on our lives, and twist them up ...

May(be): Science Fiction!
This month, we're boldly going where...well, many readers have gone before, actually. Science fiction is a well-known genre, but one of my favorites, nonetheless! Science fiction is a type of speculative fiction that incorporates scientific (or pseudo-scien...

Marching into Microhistory!
Microhistory (the first nonfiction genre we're exploring this year) is a special branch of history, looking intensively at a very small area of study - on a single subject, for instance, or a single social movement. Rather than a general, inclusive look at ...

Hi, February High Fantasy!
Defining high fantasy as opposed to low fantasy has nothing at all to do with quality. High fantasy is set in an entirely other world, one full of magic, so it works differently than our own, non-magical world. (Think Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.) L...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Blog! Let's Change It Up!
The blog is two years old, now! I know I've taken a pretty long break, but now I'm back, and doing things a bit differently. First things first - how'd I do with my 2015 resolutions? Read books. Yep! I met my goal of 100 books (and a couple more, just for f...

Taking a Break
No worries! I have a big project I need to be working on for the next little bit - there's no exact deadline, so I can't tell you when exactly I'll be back. I might drop a few lines now and then, especially if something happens with CISA/CISPA or net neutra...

What If? Alternate History in June
[First off, an apology: this was supposed to be a  nonfiction month. We were going to look at historical nonfiction. Why did we end up with alternate history? I'll answer that in a bit.] "What if...?" is probably a question better asked before making big de...

Espionage in April
Spy fiction, a sub-genre of mystery and thriller, grew out of a time when world powers and their modern intelligence agencies were heavily involved in intrigue and rivalry. While older works featured spies in various circumstances, it wasn't until the early...

New Weird for the New Year!
Before we get to New Weird, we should take a look at Old Weird! The best - or, at least, best known - examples of Weird literature were written by H.P. Lovecraft, who gave us the darkly disturbing yet strangely beautiful world of Cthulhu, the Old Ones, and ...
