The #SleepyHollow showrunners finally achieved their greatest dream of destroying this once great show and driving it into the ground with the season 3 finale. Fans are justifiably pissed off, and there is plenty of blame to go around.

New #KTBookChallenge! The Grace of Kings is everything Epic Fantasy ought to be--giant page count, cast of thousands, world-changing high stakes, complex protagonists, intervention by the gods--without the McEurope setting, dudes-only cast, sexist nonsense, and uninformed Asian fetishization.

The Hugo Award nomination period closes in just a few days. I know some of you are still thinking that you aren't qualified to nominate. NOPE! You so are.

What I find fascinating is that the main character, Laura, goes through the entire drug addiction arc in the space of 22 episode minutes and 6 days of in-show time.

Introduction
Hi there, I'm Tempest (the K. is silent... mostly), a writer of ill-repute! I do fiction, non-fiction, blogging, Twittering, and rabble-rousing. My fiction is mostly science fiction and fantasy, though I also have this tendency toward interstitialness. I'm an essayist, mainly on matters of SF/F media.

On to the SRS Bizness: I'm also an activist - my particular social justice kinks include racial and gender equality with some dabbling in LGBT issues. You can find many essays by me on those subjects around the internets as well.

Please check out my links to my various blogs, social networks and the like.

This place has very strange decor. The chairs are.... disturbing and fascinating all at once. Aside from that, I enjoyed all the dishes we had here. Not a top level Thai experience, not a bad one, either. Had all the staple dishes plus some new to me. All were tasty and at just the right level of spice. There's not much else to say. Staff was attentive and gave us good service. The bathrooms are clean and well decorated. The chairs have butts on them.

Unimpressed. I've ordered tacos and burritos from this place and neither wowed me. With tacos, the meat is all important. It can't just be bland, it needs flavor, spices--not even taking about heat--and juiciness. Sadly, these were not up to standard. And the burrito was just there. Won't be ordering again.

Fell in love with arepas a few years ago and really miss my favorite place in NYC. Came here hoping Pica is just as good and they are! Loved the arepas and loved the Yuca fries even more. Even their empanadas are on point. I am more a fan of their side dishes and finger food than their plates and dinners. Mostly due to price. I think of this as cart food, not fancy dinner food. That said, you can get full on the finger food and not spend too much money. Love eating in their little restaurant and I appreciate their fast delivery.

I've only ordered delivery from here, so I can only comment on the food. I love the food! This was suggested to me as the best Chinese in the Mission and so far I agree. I am pretty much a string bean + meat and friend rice kind of person, and both dishes are great here. Everything I've tried has been tasty. It's a bit on the expensive side. Worth it. Delivery is always fast as well. I just wish they would put the sauce-y dishes in a different kind of take out container, as they always arrive leaking. Other than that, I have no complaints. I order from them at least once a week.

Snobby New Yorker, here. I have high standards for pizza. Serrano's makes some decent pies--well above chains--and they can be generous with the toppings. Both pizzas I've had from here weren't evenly cooked and, weirdly, they didn't spread the pepperoni evenly. They were both tasty. Just nothing out the ordinary.

I know I'm being an annoying American by saying this, but: when I ask for mild spice I'd appreciate mild spice. The food we ordered was all really good, just hotter than I would like. It made some dishes hard to eat without having to drink milk after every bite. The others were really good, though! I'm also unimpressed with Indian places that don't include rice with their dishes. For these prices, I really expect rice. Overall, a disappointing experience. I'm willing to give them another try in the future.

This is a small bookstore and it doesn't take long to browse the shelves. However, it is a potent space. It's exactly what an indie bookstore should be: filled with a mix of new and older titles as well as new and used books, staffed by people who care about SF/F books and reading, full of hand-picked suggestions, just big enough that you can wander around and get sucked into reading a book without feeling like someone is always looking at you. I'm so glad this store didn't go away. It's amazing how the community pulled together to save it. It's worth saving and keeping.
