Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Saga, and more high-quality SF/F than you can shake a stick at. That certainly covers a whole bunch of our post tags.
The Hugo Awards honor both pros and fans alike, and as usual, the 2014 nominees provide a superb checklist of things to read, watch, and enjoy. The winners will be announced on Sunday, August 17 at Loncon 3 (aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention).
The full list of nominees is available below. And should you need to gush about your favorites, mention absent works you feel are deserving (*cough* Janelle Monae’s The Electric Lady for Best Related Work *cough*), or…ah…have a measured discussion about nominees you may object to, the comments are here for your disposal.READ MORE

Mickey!!!! (Sorry, had to.) Noel Clarke and Ian Somerhalder star in this sci-fi film which is almost certainly not about Neo from The Matrix. The description on the video says, “A former soldier is taken captive and awakens in the back of a van to learn he only has a few moments to figure out how he got there. It’s a unique concept set in the near future that explores the idea of mind control.

I have a confession to make: When The CW made the announcement it would be renewing Supernatural for its tenth season with no end in sight, I groaned. Audibly. It’s not because I dislike the show. On the contrary, I hold the Winchesters near and dear to my heart. I pause in respectful silence any time I hear “Carry On Wayward Son,” but I’m worried about my beloved series going down in a depressing spiral of mediocre episodes. Nobody wants that.
Sometimes, as fans, we just have to let go.READ MORE

The Japanese trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film hit the internet this week. It’s got spaceships, planets, condescending aliens, which is all I really need to know. That said, am I the only one who gets a deep sense of foreboding whenever I see Sean Bean on screen?READ MORE

The Nebula Award Nominees are out this week, and as usual we have tried to provide you with links to where you can read at least some of them for free online. So far as we were able to quickly Google. This turns out to be a lot! Congratulations to the twice nominated Alaya Dawn Johnson, to our friends at Apex magazine for earning a nomination for Rachel Swirsky “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love,” and to Pacific Rim. We really hope you win Best Dramatic Presentation, because we love you.READ MORE

In June 2014, Lightspeed magazine will be doing an oversized issue that’s entirely written and edited by women titled “Women Destroy Science Fiction!” They even have a Kickstarter campaign going to help fund the issue where you can get things like posters and subscriptions. An easy response would be to write this off as some sort of pandering, given that a lot of times projects like this are done to quiet down the disgruntled women-folk without having to hire them regularly. However, there’s more to this project and this publisher than just a simple feature on women.READ MORE
