This week, we went to see Seanan McGuire at Third Place Books. Instead of doing a reading, Seanan answered questions for the entire time–a brilliant idea because she has such incredible stories, especially including wildlife. Her new book, Down Among the Sticks and Bones (book two of the Wayward Children), is out now.
We give the finale of American Gods a solid B+. Shadow finally understands and accepts the new reality around him, but we pass through that moment too quickly for our liking.
We talk about the Hugo Finalists for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form (the movies). We also read two finalists for Best Novelette: “The Tomato Thief”, by Ursula Vernon and Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By The T-Rex, by Stix Hiscock. Yep, we actually read it.
