Review: Resident Alien series by Peter Hogan

Resident Alien is a space opera/mystery graphic novel series by Peter Hogan, and I love it. There are four volumes so far, with a fifth coming out in November, all from Dark Horse. Each is published as a miniseries and then a trade paperback, so it’s easy to follow what to read next. Each volume has a…… Continue reading Review: Resident Alien series by Peter Hogan

Feminist Friday Review: How to Suppress Women’s Writing by Joanna Russ

Where in the heck did I hear about How to Suppress Women’s Writing by Joanna Russ? If you wrote a blog post about her in the past couple of months, do let me know. Anyway, Russ was an influential science fiction writer in the 1970s, so I’d been aware of her for a while and always meant…… Continue reading Feminist Friday Review: How to Suppress Women’s Writing by Joanna Russ

Recapping the I Was a Sixth Grade Alien series by Bruce Coville

Bruce Coville was, in the 1990s, a leading member of the kids’ scifi and fantasy pantheon. He probably still is, there’s a lot of YA and middle grade these days but seems like not as much for the younger kids. The I Was a Sixth Grade Alien series isn’t his best in terms of quality, but I…… Continue reading Recapping the I Was a Sixth Grade Alien series by Bruce Coville

Update: June!

As you can see, my plans for posting more in May didn’t happen, but still. We carry on. I’ve spent some time contemplating the blog and whether or not it needs a more narrow niche, but decided not to really change anything, just more fully embrace the fact that I mostly review books I don’t…… Continue reading Update: June!

Review: Anna Mercury by Warren Ellis

I mentioned Saturday that Anna Mercury by Warren Ellis is a comic book that’s frustrating because I want more of it. Upon reflection, I decided there’s really more to say about it, so here we are. It’s one volume that’s mostly setup for a larger series that never appeared, so I can’t recommend it for sheer pleasure…… Continue reading Review: Anna Mercury by Warren Ellis

I’m Starting Book Collections

HAHA I know, I’m trying to cut down on books, why would I be collecting them? Well, part of cutting down the number is because I want to be more intentional about the books I collect and hold onto. I want to complete some series I’d started accumulating, and some collections based on author, but…… Continue reading I’m Starting Book Collections

Three Comics by Tom Gauld

Serendipity, my friends. I happened to see Mooncop by Tom Gauld at work, it looked vaguely familiar and like something I would enjoy, and I had a spare half hour, so I read it. And it was great and I’ve now read the only other two I could find at the library and I love Tom Gauld…… Continue reading Three Comics by Tom Gauld
