  • Gay Pride Flag
    Posted on: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

    On June 28, 1969, members of the LGBT community rioted after police raided a gay bar called Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn Riots proved to be a turning point in the LGBT civil rights movement. In celebration and memory of this momentous event in America, Pride Month now takes place in June. During this month, cities all over the nation host parades, marches, rallies, festivals, and other events to promote respect, equality, and pride for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. In honor of Pride month, and to help spread inclusiveness and representation I have created a list of some adult and YA science fiction and fantasy books that feature or focus on characters that are LGBTQ+.

    Today marks the historic 50th anniversary of Star Trek. Fifty years ago, September 8, 1966, the iconic sci-fi series premiered on the CBS network. With six TV series (seven if you count the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery show) and thirteen movies, this sci-fi cultural phenomenon is still thriving. The newest movie, Star Trek: Beyond, was well-received as a summer blockbuster and fans are ready for more.

    Election season is in full swing, and as depressing as ever. All the candidates are horrible garbage people except maybe the one you’re voting for, and even they’re probably just the best of a bad bunch. Maybe that’s what we get when we insist that all our candidates be natural-born Americans and non-fictional. After all, there’s a whole universe full of imaginary rulers out there with proven political skills, and I’m sure one of them would be willing to serve as President for a term or two.

    That’s no moon!  Nope, it’s just another Buzzreads post, celebrating the release of the long awaited Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens.  Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there lived a librarian who was curious about what other sci-fi books she could read to get her in the mood for the next episode in the saga.  Luckily, her local library was able to help her out...

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in a few days, and if you’re anything like the entire rest of the Internet, you’ve been hysterically excited about it since the summer of 2012. How are you ever going to make it one more hour, let alone days? Now, the obvious solution would be to read some Star Wars books to pass the time, but there are less than 300 of those. I’m sure you’ve read and re-read all of them too many times for them to provide much comfort. So instead, you tell me what you like best about Star Wars, and I’ll tell you what book you should be reading to find more of that. I’ll be giving recommendations in the comments, but for the sake of having a blog post to comment on, please welcome our crowd of imaginary patrons with conveniently phrased questions.
