Warp Drives #10: A Can of Worms

This week, we’re again spoiling everything that we talk about, so don’t listen until you’re ready! We talk about “A Prayer for Mad Sweeney” from American Gods. This episode had a lot more movement than the last few. We enjoyed Essie’s story, though there were a few moments that gave us pause.

We both absolutely loved the Black Panther trailer. I’m excited about seeing the Dora Milaje and Dave is interested in T’Challa’s sister Shuri and her vibranium weapons.

Then, we discuss all six of the Hugo finalists in the Short Story category:
“The City Born Great”, by N. K. Jemisin (Tor.com, September 2016)
“A Fist of Permutations in Lightning and Wildflowers”, by Alyssa Wong (Tor.com, March 2016)
“Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies”, by Brooke Bolander (Uncanny Magazine, November 2016)
“Seasons of Glass and Iron”, by Amal El-Mohtar (The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales, Saga Press)
“That Game We Played During the War”, by Carrie Vaughn (Tor.com, March 2016)
“An Unimaginable Light”, by John C. Wright (God, Robot, Castalia House)

Next week, we’re attempting to finish and discuss the Hugo nominees for Best Novelette.
