I was going to devote this week’s post to the Hugo Awards situation, but to be honest, I thought better of it. Why waste my energy on the emotionally draining behaviour of a bunch of immature, selfish, cruel, destructive people? I’d rather talk about people who build, create, nurture and share.
At Safe, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz talks about words, actions, and using power for good. It’s a post filled with hope and compassion. (Content note for discussion of abusive behaviour.)
Rochita’s post refers to this one by Laura Mixon, which comes with a similar content note.
I absolutely adore M Sereno’s poetry. Her latest, ‘The Eaters, published in Uncanny Magazine, is gorgeous. Amal El-Mohtar reads it aloud here.
BBC Radio 4 is doing a programme featuring extensive interviews with Ursula Le Guin, Ursula Le Guin at 85.
Short stories I read and enjoyed this week include ‘Monkey King, Faerie Queen’ by Zen Cho (published at Kaleidotrope) and ‘Ambergris, or the Sea-Sacrifice’ by Rhonda Eikamp (published at Lackington’s, illustrated by Likhain).
Over at SF Signal, authors pay tribute to Terry Pratchett and Leonard Nimoy.
Ken Liu discusses his new novel The Grace of Kings at SF Signal.
This round-up post at Ladybusiness has some fabulous short story recommendations.
It’s always disorienting for me to see real-life friends and former academic colleagues getting discussed in SF publications.
This is the most Cambridge story ever.
Please spend your weekends being lovely to each other.
