In his latest book review, @princejvstin shares his thoughts on The Buried Life by Carrie Patel:

The city of Recoletta is an artifact of the Catastrophe. Like the bomb shelters that saved humanity after the Catastrophe, most of the city is built underground, and most of its residents rarely see the surface. It’s a point of pride to those who manage…

Edge of Dark author @brendacooper takes over the blog w/ "On sniping, women, and SF." And soon, we shall interview her!

There’s a lot of sniping going on across genders in our field.  Vitriolic sniping.  Shame on us. Yes, science fiction is largely male dominated.  So are a lot of fields.  I know.  My day job is in technology, where I’m a c-level exec. It wasn’t…

In his latest review, @read1000lives discusses Use As Directed Review (eds. Simon Petrie/Edwina Harvey). Enjoy!

Left over to review as part of last year’s World Tour of SFF, Use Only As Directed fits just as nicely into the Women and Non-Binary in SFF theme for Skiffy & Fanty this year. The latest anthology from Peggy Bright Books, edited by Simon Petrie and Edwina…

In her latest Short and Sublime feature, @cecily_kane highlights some of her favorite short stories from February 2015!

February’s shorts include emotionally resonant stories about family and friendship and trippy genre-benders. “The Language of Knives” by Haralambi Markov (Tor.com) is a secondary world fantasy in which the main character has given up the life of a warrior…

In her latest Indy Genre review, @katsudonburi discusses Shorts Directed by Women.

I thought I’d start off this year with a few short films — and since we’re doing women and non-binary people in genre, how about some short films directed by women? Well, my friends, easier said than done. It probably shouldn’t be a surprise (consider for…

Our latest Torture Cinema ep. is here! For our 51st Torture, we discuss 1999's Baby Geniuses!

Robot babies, creepy babies, and just babies, oh my!  Shaun, Julia, Paul, and Rachael join forces to talk about 1999’s Baby Geniuses, which one critic described as “about as endearing as unanesthetized gum surgery.”  You can guess how we all felt about…

In the latest My Superpower post, @Carrie_Patel, author of The Buried Life, explains how making lists helps her write!

My Superpower is a regular guest column on the Skiffy and Fanty blog where authors and creators tell us about one weird skill, neat trick, highly specialized cybernetic upgrade, or other superpower they have, and how it helped (or hindered!) their…

Zombie soldiers, evil spirits, and body farms, oh my!  Myke Cole returns to the show to talk about his fourth novel, Gemini Cell.  We talk to him about some of his writing “firsts” (standalone novels, sex scenes from different POVs, etc.), the inner…

In her latest Short and Sublime novella review, @cecily_kane discusses The Awakened Kingdom by @nkjemisin

The Awakened Kingdom, a 2014 fantasy novella by N.K. Jemisin released both as part of The Inheritance Trilogy omnibus and as a standalone e-book, is told from the point of view of a baby god. And as adorable as the central premise is, the execution is…

In his latest Mining the Genre Asteroid column, @princejvstin discusses author Mary Renault.

    Jo Walton’s Among Others works as an interesting reading list of novels and authors that the author herself read and thought about growing up. Much of the matter of the book is her protagonist reading, and thinking about the many writers whose work…
