The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2022 | John Joseph Adams, Rebecca Roanhorse
post image

Rebecca Roanhorse‘s selections are outstanding - all informed by the world on fire now and as the best of SF&F, imagining what the alternatives (or none)would be like. My favorites highlight human resilience and the cracks that might let the light in: The Pizza Boy by Meg Ellison, The Red Mother by Elizabeth Bear, The Cold Calculations by Aimee Ogden; and the opposite: the devastation of hope in The Future Library by Peng Shepherd.

First of all this title! ⬆️🤣 Not one I bought but I definitely did some damage at Book Outlet, especially the clearance spot, where I found many of these, and their $5.99 fiction! There are a few Amazon markdowns too, including Jollof Rice - blame it on @Hooked_on_books ! Also a few #toblonglist books in the middle, including Reward System, which I‘ve been reading today, and Manhunt - blame it on @Reggie #BlackFridayBookHaul 🎄

MaureenMc Epic! 🤩 7d

RebelReader The Night Watchman is so good. My IRL group read it as we do all Erdrich‘s because we‘re from Minnesota! We thought this might be her best so far! 6d
Suet624 Oh! You got Three! I love this author so much that I've been afraid to crack open the copy that I purchased as a pre-order. 😃 6d

Megabooks @RebelReader very excited to read that for author a month in January! 6d

A great selection of short stories

An #anthology of food & feelings from minor & not so minor celebrities 🍽 This was put on my #readersradar from the awesome @Megabooks and it‘s really entertaining. Some essays are better than others but a lovey distraction while I prepare dinner 🍔🥗🥔 #NonfictionNovember

Megabooks 💯 fun but some are definitely better than others 4w

The Refrigerator Monologues | Catherynne M. Valente
post image

Framing device: Canterbury tales.

Some women meet in Hell‘s Kitchen (the actual Hell‘s actual Kitchen). There‘s a refrigerator looming in the corner, and in the women‘s lives, there were once #superheroes.

One more thing our “heroines” have in common: their inferior #shortstories have turned them bitter.

Audiobook recommended, and (this time) +5 for Valente.

I thought it‘d be wise to go for a less bloody costume at work. Somehow, I don‘t think the kids in the Children‘s Room would‘ve appreciated the classic rock pun, anyway. 😉

As you can (hopefully!) tell, I‘m Mickey (as the sorcerer‘s apprentice from Fantasia). ✨

#Scarathlon2022 points = +10 (costume entry) +1 (participation) = 2360.
