In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it below. Let’s get started:

fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviews1) Hugo Award Nominees: A couple surprises in there. Certainly a ton of quality work represented, but I still can’t help but feel a little disappointed.

2) Does SFF Cause Recurring Dreams?: I don’t believe I’ve had a recurring dream since I was very young, but I definitely have some strange fantasy related ones from time to time.

3) Libertarian Science Fiction: Tired of feeling left out of the election process? Here’s a couple books for you.

4) Should SFF do more than entertain?: I started this article with the preconceived notion it was going to be like all the other “Fantasy is for Children” articles I’ve seen in mainstream press. I was quite delighted to be wrong in this case.

  1. I’ve had a ton of SFF dreams. The night after I read the first Harry Potter book (that one’s short, I read it in a day), I dreamed about going through Platform 9 3/4. I dreamed once I was an Aes Sedai. I had the weirdest dream of my life the night after I finished The Amber Spyglass; I distinctly remember waking up and thinking that. Except, unfortunately, I forgot most of it a moment later.
