We had a week full of SFF events. First, we saw Daryl Gregory reading at University Bookstore. He had a fun way of conducting his Q & A, plus he also read from his newly-released novel Spoonbenders. We also attended the Locus Awards, including the Friday evening readings from Carrie Vaughn and Connie Willis.
We both read two more Hugo finalists for Best Novelette: “You’ll Surely Drown Here If You Stay,” by Alyssa Wong and “The Jewel and Her Lapidary,” by Fran Wilde. We loved the complex magical rules and intricate politics of Fran’s story and the western desert magic of Alyssa’s tale.
Dave watched The Girl With All the Gifts and compares it to the novel. (Remember, we talk details of everything, so spoilers in this and every episode!)
And hey, Moana is free on Netflix. You’re welcome!
(By the way, here’s a link to the video that was cracking us both up: Forever Spinning Kid On Go Cart)
