This month’s Star Trek post is basically about how the structure of the show lends itself to Kirk/Spock shipping, with particular attention to the famously shippy licensed novel Killing Time. It’s probably the best Trek post I’ve done in a while, if I do say so myself. But it’s certainly the topic that has interested me most, so…… Continue reading Update: October!
I was gonna do a thing, I didn’t do the thing, I ended up without a post idea for today and no books I could finish in time to review. But I found the A to Z Bookish Survey on A Bookish Bi, and I can’t resist a survey! Side note: I’m pretty sure I…… Continue reading A to Z Bookish Survey
So there’s a travel guide for the planet Vulcan from Star Trek. As a hardcore Vulcan-obsessed Trekkie, of course I wanted to check it out. I didn’t have high hopes, I just expected it to be mildly amusing and nicely designed — it’s from Insight Editions, which publishes a lot of TV and film art…… Continue reading Review: Vulcan (Hidden Universe Travel Guides) by Dayton Ward
This month’s Star Trek post is about four recent documentaries — a couple you’ve probably heard of and a couple you maybe haven’t, ranging from real good to real bad. Check it out and let me know if I’ve missed any! I’ve made some progress on #readmyowndamnbooks in August, thanks to grad school being over and me…… Continue reading Star Trek Documentaries and Challenge Update
Hi everyone, sorry for the intermittent posts this past month. I’ve been graduating and settling in with a new job! I’m in the process of setting up books and posts for the future, though, and I’m excited to have more time and energy for blogging and blog-reading. I do have a Star Trek post up…… Continue reading Star Trek and #readmyowndamnbooks Updates
I successfully defended my thesis WOOOHOOOO YAAAAAY! One more summer of class and I graduate! My brain’s still pretty fried from all that, but my buddy Rose and I put together a Star Trek post for Comparative Geeks: Let’s Talk About First Officers. June is Pride Month, so in addition to some of the usual shenanigans, I’m…… Continue reading Quick update and Star Trek and stuff!
I turned in my thesis essay and I’m back as promised with a new Star Trek post on Comparative Geeks: “I Loved Star Trek: The Original Series, Where Can I Get More Episodes?” It’s sort of a stealth review of a comic I really liked, with some extra recommendations for good measure. I’m defending my thesis at…… Continue reading I’m Back, with Star Trek Comics!
This month’s Comparative Geeks post is in conversation with two friends on a topic I’ve been contemplating for some time: how emotions are portrayed on Star Trek. That post is mostly focused on how Data and Spock represent types of human neurodivergence, not a complete absence of emotion or a state of repression that needs release. We…… Continue reading Review – The Myth of Irrationality: The Science of the Mind from Plato to Star Trek by John McCrone
This month’s Star Trek column on Comparative Geeks is a short review of the mobile game Trexels! I also recently reviewed a similar game called High School Story, one of my favorites. I also had the pleasure of writing for Write On Sisters again last week, with a post on ways writers can use the…… Continue reading Guest Posts and A to Z Thoughts
Hi everyone, it’s time for my first #readmyowndamnbooks challenge update! This is a super chill thing about reading books you already own. I have a goal of five books a month, mainly focused on physical books because those are the ones I want to clear out. I’ll be counting ebooks too, but listed separately, since…… Continue reading February #readmyowndamnbooks Update
