The Galaxy, and the Ground Within (Wayfarers #4) – Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet made me fall in love with Becky Chambers’ writing and with her imagination. I enjoyed the next two Wayfarers books even if my excitement wasn’t always as high and my awe as all-encompassing as with that first book. Chambers' writing is precise and meticulous, perfectly suited to … Continue reading The Galaxy, and the Ground Within (Wayfarers #4) – Becky Chambers

Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers #3) – Becky Chambers & Patricia Rodríguez (narrator)

If you’re hoping for breathtaking space fights and loads of action, go find another book. Becky Chambers is much more interested in her characters and their reactions to events than in events themselves. I love the way Chambers sets the atmosphere in her books, and that is almost enough for me to enjoy them. I’m … Continue reading Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers #3) – Becky Chambers & Patricia Rodríguez (narrator)

Callisto 2.0 (Shambhala Saga #1) – Susan English

When I first started reading lesfic more than twenty-five years ago, there were a few lesbian/feminist utopias about women-only worlds. The first that come to mind are Daughters of a Coral Dawn by Katherine V. Forrest and Return to Isis by Jean Stewart. I was reminded of these while I was reading Callisto 2.0, Susan … Continue reading Callisto 2.0 (Shambhala Saga #1) – Susan English

GlitterShip Spring 2020 – Keffy R.M. Kehrli (Editor) & Gwen C. Katz & Claire Humphrey & Phoebe Barton & Kat Riddell & Lore Graham & Elena Sichrovsky & Jennifer Mace & Benjamin Rosenbaum & Cae Hawksmoor

I don’t usually review magazines but I had the opportunity to take a look at this one and I’m really happy I got to discover it. GlitterShip is a queer online magazine of science-fiction and fantasy. There is also an audio version, as podcasts, so if you’d rather listen than read, you have a choice … Continue reading GlitterShip Spring 2020 – Keffy R.M. Kehrli (Editor) & Gwen C. Katz & Claire Humphrey & Phoebe Barton & Kat Riddell & Lore Graham & Elena Sichrovsky & Jennifer Mace & Benjamin Rosenbaum & Cae Hawksmoor

Tales from Ardulum – J.S. Fields & Lynn Norris

Oh, how I love this crew! I love Atalante and Emn, of course, but Yorden and Nicholas are family too. Another thing I love just as much is Lynn Norris’s narration. The Ardulum series really is one of my favourites, and Norris's narration couldn't be more perfect. As I wrote when I reviewed this book … Continue reading Tales from Ardulum – J.S. Fields & Lynn Norris

Powdered Souls (Snow Sub Series, Book 1) – Dixon Reuel & Garrett Michael Brown

Dixon Reuel’s name has been on my radar for a few months but I never found the time to read her stories. So when I got the opportunity to review this short story in audio, I jumped on it. Strangely enough, this was the first time I listened to a male narrator, and maybe because … Continue reading Powdered Souls (Snow Sub Series, Book 1) – Dixon Reuel & Garrett Michael Brown

Not Your Sidekick (Sidekick Squad #1) – C. B. Lee

4.5* - Jess Tran is a normal teenager (insofar as teenagers can be normal). She’s not a genius like her younger brother nor does she have superpowers like her parents and older sister. She’s average. In order to prove her worth, at least to herself, she applies for an internship at Monroe Industries. Much to … Continue reading Not Your Sidekick (Sidekick Squad #1) – C. B. Lee
