Will anybody take my bet that the argument will not be settled by his op-ed? Or maybe it will, by a kind of cinematic force majeure. To figure out whether Star Wars is science fiction, you first need to figure out how to define the term — which is harder than you might think.
Genres are notoriously difficult to pin down, which is why they spark so many arguments. Genre is a marker of quality and belonging, of seriousness and community. Everyone has their own way of celebrating the holidays. And how often do you get a chance to use that word? An analysis? Me opening my head like a flip-top Pac-Men and seeing what globs of brain-goo I can grab and hastily smack into the screen? So please, take seat. The flavors on tap this month are perfect for those looking to unwind by the fire, to shed a tear for those who have not made it this far, and to reaffirm a commitment to pushing forward, into a future that is not mired by the same harms and dangers as the past.
Each pint today comes with a special side of memories and a tendril of shadow creeping just out of view. The only remedy is to drink deep, and share the moment with those you care about, and look for ways to escape the familiar cycles of hate, loss, and fear—together…. Divya Apex. Notes: Pouring a dark brown rimmed with gold, the first sip is deep, subtle and smoky like dreams burning, only to reveal newer, sweeter tones underneath, a future still bright despite loss and danger. Review: Kalyani is a young probably autistic girl who experiences the world quite differently from the rest of her family.
The Twilight Zone came to be regarded as a classic of science fiction for the small screen. A dystopia? Which makes dystopian fiction perfect for the developing adolescent brain, says Laurence Steinberg, a psychologist at Temple University. During this time, there are so many new emotions and they are much stronger than those kids experienced when they were younger.
Once a Lawman by Peter Brandvold (2000, Paperback)
They listen to sad music — think emo! So dystopian novels fit right in, they have all that sadness plus big, emotional ideas: justice, fairness, loyalty and mortality. The plume is seen to sweep westwards out over the Pacific Ocean near Los Angeles and then turn north towards the State of Oregon. Readers and audiences like winners. Hugo-winning editor Gordon Van Gelder had a famous father, Dr. The real Van Gelder and two impostors appear at , and the truth is told right after the mark.
Seems accurate, too. Plug in a name and give it a whirl. The more people like an author and another author, the closer together these two authors will move on the Literature-Map. With the upcoming Bergmann for her exemplary service and vision in what a journal of speculative poetry can be. We look forward to the approach Vince Gotera will take in the years ahead, especially with the arrival of the 40th anniversary of the SFPA in Vince was born and raised in San Francisco and lived in the Philippines for part of his childhood.
He is also a former editor of North American Review and was the poetry editor of the journal Asian America. His vision of a future Los Angeles that is all torrential rain, steam and blue searchlights piercing through ruin is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Near the end of the film, Deckard has a dream about a unicorn.
Later, he is escaping with Rachael — the beautiful next-generation replicant whom he has fallen for. Just as they walk out the door of his apartment, he finds an origami figure in the shape of a unicorn that was left by his former police partner Gaff. In explaining the distinctions between the different methods of storytelling, be it movies, television, books or graphic novels, Del Toro also points out the ways in which they interrelate.
You have a first act, the first third of the season, second act is the middle third and you structure it like that. You find yourself applying tricks that you learned developing a video game in telling a movie. Little tricks that you learn structurally working in TV, you apply them to a movie and so forth. Where Matheson shines is in his depictions of ordinary horror, the way strange goings-on affect everyday people, and his ambiguous endings leave plenty of room for further thought.
Not all that loud, but I was close to the kitchen and getting closer. By that I mean that Tasha and Lianne were taking off their coats and I ran away. As soon as I entered the kitchen the knocking stopped. I figured it might be their boiler kicking in. It was winter after all. This led me on a chase through the cupboards as, in the other room, Cedric called for me.
And then I reached their pantry door. This style of one-family home had a separate little pantry, about the size of a small walk-in closet. I found the door there and, still hunting for glasses, I tried the handle and found it locked. Then Cedric walked into the kitchen. How could they not be? For me, literature, and those formations that sustain it, have ever been a eutopic enclave against a darkening dystopian world. Then, as if on cue, Puerto Rico, a U. Earlier today a former student informed me that more skin bleaching is consumed in India than Coca-Cola, and on the edge of my computer a new site is announcing that the Chinese government has made it nearly impossible for its million Internet users to express opinions online anonymously.
Plus this little cheery gem from the Federal Reserve: the top 1 percent of the U. In July, scientists reported that a strange protein courses through the veins of pregnant women. Instead, it is made in her fetus and in the placenta, by a gene that originally came from a virus that infected our mammalian ancestors more than million years ago. Altogether, they make up about 8 percent of the human genome.
And scientists are only starting to figure out what this viral DNA is doing to us. It is time to demystify Rapa Nui. The ecocide hypothesis centres on two major claims. Second, that the palm trees that once covered the island were callously cut down by the Rapa Nui population to move statues. This led to internecine warfare and, ultimately, cannibalism…. This much :. As predictable as mermaid frocks at the Oscars, Hollywood greets the end of the year by suddenly noticing that roughly a third of moviegoers and three-quarters of art-house audiences are over 50, most of them women.
This annual phenomenon can lead to theaters clogged with old-lady bait, which usually means something British and upper-crusty, preferably with literary roots. Milne Domhnall Gleeson created the Winnie-the-Pooh tales using the stuffed animals of his son, Christopher Robin beautifully played by little Will Tilston. At the time of his death, he was hard at work on a new story about the iconic DC Comics character he co-created with Bernie Wrightson: Swamp Thing, the avatar of the Green.
And while they let John Constantine occasionally hold a cigarette, his being into guys was kind of a sore spot steadfastly avoided by the show. If the government did this for employees, it would be a scandal. The Verge has the story. They feature weatherproof benches, hatches that hide electricity sockets, rustproof rocking chairs, a fireplace, wood canopies, and an outdoor Wi-Fi network. There are ramps built in for those who need them. Microsoft said it had been planning renovations and surveyed employees to see what they cared about the most.
Employees said if they were given the opportunity, they would work outside more.

After cramming a ton of set-up and plot into its first three episodes, what the show needs now is to establish a new normal and give the characters a reprieve from the constant barrage of Events! Instead, this episode features another crisis, but it struggles throughout to convey why any of these events should matter to the viewer….
The next is in Burbank, CA in November. Every once in a blue moon a television series captures the hearts of viewers who become passionate about their love of the storyline, the look and feel of the show, and the actors that breathe life into the characters we come to cherish. Yesterday, Chuck Wendig called the internet to attention :. Japanese pop culture will be celebrated at Youmacon in Detroit from November Downtown Detroit is filled with people in costumes, and it has nothing to do with Halloween. Thousands of Japanese pop culture fans have come from all over the country to Youmacon….
Common themes throughout the event are Anime Japanese animation , Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above. Youmacon brings a unique all-ages mix of interactive events, celebrity guest panels, and live musical performances to Downtown Detroit.
Players participate in gameshow-like mini-games to help their teams advance and win. Besides being a familiar face in horror films, Price was renowned for his impressive collection of fine art even selling tasteful paintings for Sears! One reviewer said:. To give you an example something that made me howl with laughter, the central character falls foul of the law, and is sentenced to be hanged, on a trumped up charge, so they build a gallows in the police station yard, but the chippie is scarcely competent, so he prevails on the narrator to give him a hand….
But on September 11 I saw a dystopian play in a bar! I sat on a cramped barstool, fortified by happy hour beer and occasional rounds of free beer and watched the play, which was performed by a cast of seven to an audience of All 22 of us fit into the entire space of a smallish bar. Mutants that kill and eat humans have surrounded Washington. But one survivor from another group Jasmine Jones shows up and says she can get the survivors to a larger group of survivors that have far more food and some medical supplies.
Should the group try to escape? I spent two hours on my uncomfortable barstool watching this play, and I enjoyed all but the last ten minutes. I was dismayed. Concerned that the EPH system as proposed might not be sufficient to protect the Hugos in future, I put my name to a proposal supporting an extra preliminary stage of voting to screen out troll nominees, and to another moving the qualifying date for nominating back to December 31 of the previous year rather than January After the Hugos had been handed out with No Award winning only twice rather than five times , Dave McCarty provided detailed voting statistics showing that EPH would have drastically reduced the number of slate finalists.
The WSFS business meeting consequently ratified both EPH and the shift to six finalists but up to five nominations per voter in each category, these changes to take effect for my turn as administrator in This concentrated our minds rather wonderfully on the need to test our software for processing nominations, newly and beautifully designed by Eemeli Aro, using the new rules…. Renay, of Best Fanzine winner Lady Business , has had a catastrophe. I feel super cursed. I didn't get to go. I didn't get to see the ceremony. And now my award can't even be put together. Why does a publisher want to make the final list?
Mike Glyer's news of science fiction fandom
Well, aside from being a nominee, which gains you shelf cred with a blurb on the cover, and another reason to issue a press release, it does something even more important: it gets your work seen by every Worldcon attendee. How so? Each attendee can download the Voter Packet , containing many of the nominated works. A publisher can send out 7, digital copies attendance to some of the most passionate and well-read fans in science fiction, some of whom may have never considered reading graphic novels before, or realized that there were amazing graphic novels which appealed to their tastes!
Equipment that was loaned was never returned. There was also a lot of odd attitudes, people leaving to party just like that and assuming everyone else would pick up the work. The key parts of the tech team worked hours each day. I walked an average of steps a day, almost solely inside Messukeskus and I was not the hardest working one of the team. Many had to fix things which were caused simply due to attitude problems and laziness. I suppose the biggest problem and reason for massive overworking was the differing staff policy which made it very hard to recruit help.
Allow me to summarise. In a Finnish con of around this size, a key staff member would get free tickets for himself and perhaps also friends, free warm meals each day, possibly costs of transportation to pre-con workshops and the con, basic accommodation during the con, a t-shirt and a staff only dead dog party with free food and free drinks, alcoholic and non alcoholic alcohol in limited amounts, of course.
At Worldcon, a key staff member had to pay for entry, which even for a first timer was three times a common convention ticket price. There was partial food compensation, no travel costs compensation, no accommodation, a t-shirt and an open for all dead dog party with nothing free, which was full and out of food by the time our department was only halfway done packing. Steven J. For example:. This story of an artist who gives up his life for an outer-space adventure manages to be clever and exciting and compassionate all at once. Elizabeth Lynn has a substantial body of work besides, but I think this one deserves not to be overlooked.

Joi Harris had been riding motorcycles since and had more than 1, hours of practice under her belt prior to the incident. Astronomical artist Kim Poor died August 16 of ataxia.
His NASA bio lists his extensive credits :. He headed up an American delegation of space artists who were brought to Moscow, USSR in to display their work for the thirtieth anniversary of Sputnik. He was also the founder of Novaspace, and the creator that brought Spacefest to life.

A gallery of his art prints is here. Straight into make-up, one of my favourite parts of the day. The initial premise of the show was this. On a planetary system with a bunch of human colonised moons known as the Quad , a kind of freelance, bounty-hunting, law enforcement agency called the RAC catches or sometimes kills wanted criminals. The three main actors were good, in particular, Hannah John-Kamen as Dutch managed to stop her role as sexy-badass-assassin from being actively bad and say corny lines with conviction.
The stories themselves were a bit dull mainly catch the baddy of the week and while the premise of the show was original it all somehow felt terribly derivative. The Firefly DNA was obvious but also a heap of tropes from everywhere and everything just piled up together in the apparent hope that something would stick.
No word on casting and at this time there is no deal and no script. You can listen to it at the link. We assemble a panel of authors to talk about how current events, national politics and international relations inspire their new works and appeal to an audience with an affinity for apocalyptic endings. After moving to a new city with her mother, Chloe Becky G finds herself in a new house that creaks, a new school with creeps, and mysterious garden gnomes that are kind of freaky.
No sooner has Chloe tried to fit in, but aliens from another dimension descend upon her house and threaten everything! To top it all off, the gnomes in her house come to life and ask for help to save the world. Now, the only thing standing between Chloe and the end of life as we know it are her new gnome-tastic friends, her neighbor Liam Josh Peck and the strength within.

The Washington Post has a piece by Travis M. Robots, man. Quite the opposite. Clever Prey of the Gods , by Nicky Drayden. In a novel chock full of dueling goddesses, genetic engineering, and general mayhem, Clever manages to stand above the fray while contributing directly to it. You see, Clever awakens both at a troubling time and in the nick of time: the personal assistant robot gains sentience just as his master has awakened his own inner divinity. Just as an ancient demigoddess unleashes a plan to regain her former glory by bathing South Africa in blood. Just as all hell is breaking loose, Clever starts out to find others of his kind who have gained sentience, to marshal their forces, to assist and do good.
Well, not shoulders. This leaves open the possibility that there was a contract at some point, but that it was cancelled, due to contractual breaches such as, I dunno, maybe something like non-payment of advance reservation fees. Google Maps adds the International Space Station.

Yesterland is a site about retired Disneyland attractions, like the Flying Saucer ride. The Flying Saucers ride uses a big, blue oval, bisected into two halves, each with thousands of round air valves, Each half has a movable arm.
There are four fleets of 16 saucers. As the ride cycle begins, a giant arm slowly swings away from the loading area, releasing your group of saucers. Air valves directly below your saucer lift it up. Tilt your body to make your saucer scoot across ride surface. Wherever you go, your saucer actuates air valves as you pass over them. All the lift comes from below. You can go remarkably fast.

Then there was another one speculating about why less plastic by an order of magnitude is found in the ocean than projected, and the discovery of novel bacteria on that plastic. The concern was focused on reducing pollution, but what happens when bacteria evolve to eat stuff we want to stay intact and functional? Movie critics, however, got a peek under wraps this week, as movie reviews for the blockbuster project debuted online Wednesday morning.
