The Last of my Hugo Reviews

This month was a slog, but I made it in just under the deadline! The voting for the 2015 Hugo Awards closes tomorrow, Friday, July 31st. Cast your ballot! If you don’t know what to vote for, consider what I have to say about the short fiction categories. I’ve reviewed them all, lastly the novellas, at Apex Magazine.

I looked at political imprisonment in some short work this week! And let me just recommend both the anthologies I read – Octavia’s Brood ed. Brown & Imarisha and Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up To No Good ed. Nelson & Merriam. Both have a bookload of smart, interesting ideas. Just a sample at Apex!

I love “visceral, gut-level, swashbuckling fun” stories and the good news is there are a lot of them in my “niche, academic, overtly to the Left in ideology” playground. Wondering where? Look no further*!

* Do look further, but look here too.

Yep, it’s that time of the month again: reviews at Apex Magazine time! I really likes me some unapologetically ass-kicking women in my fiction, so I found some goodies for you. And me.

As ever, Clavis Aurea is up at Apex Magazine! I looked at some stories about exploiting youth (and what kind of youth we value), loosely speaking….

I love networks and internets and cyberspaces; places where it ain’t all about bodies. So I reviewed some interesting stories about similar over at Apex Magazine!
