“fantasy” can refer to anything clearly SFF but not obviously able to fit into any particular box.

Kindred – Octavia Butler

Welp. I read this in a day. That probably says more than the thousand words I’m going to write could possibly convey about how good I thought this book was (spoilers, I’m going to write those thousand words anyway). Because … Continue reading

Pretty Deadly Vol. 2 – Deconnick, Rios, Bellaire and Cowles
