This week’s post goes from the sublime to the ridiculous (but mainly focuses on the sublime).
To start off, an absolutely fabulous roundtable on diversity. The participants are Aliette de Bodard, Zen Cho, M Sereno, Bogi Takács and JY Yang, moderated by Charles Tan.
Over at Ladybusiness, Renay has created a fabulous summer (or winter) reading recommendation list.
On a sadder note, Tanith Lee has died. Athena Andreadis has written a lovely tribute. Sophia McDougall shared an old anecdote about meeting Lee.
There are a lot of new updates at Where Ghostwords Dwell.
Sophia McDougall has posted an excerpt of Space Hostages, which will be published really soon.
You can enter a giveaway to win an ARC of House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard here.
I saw Mad Max: Fury Road this week and absolutely adored it. (If I had endless money and more time on my hands, I would have seen it at least five more times since Tuesday.) This essay by Tansy Rayner Roberts goes a long way towards explaining why.
I found this post by Kaye Wierzbicki over at The Toast very moving. (Content note: discussion of abortion.)
This is the last week of A Softer World and I am really not okay. This and this are probably my favourite recent comics of theirs.
Natalie Luhrs is reading what looks to be a terrible book for a good cause. I encourage everyone who has the ability to donate. I will be donating to an equivalent UK-based charity.
This post’s title comes from my favourite Eurovision song this year, which didn’t win. This did not bother me in the slightest.
