Midsommar review Ari Aster Hereditary Florence Pugh

To everything (turn, turn, turn) / There is a season (turn, turn, turn), The Byrds sang. If you listen closely, Ari Aster’s new horror film Midsommar says, you will hear the laughter behind a wrenching sob. No matter how awful it feels in the moment, you will wake up the next morning, and the next, and the next. Even the longest winter will always give way to spring. Whereas Hereditary, the writer/director’s debut feature, is about the sacrificial lamb meeting its preordained end, Midsommar concerns itself with the entire life cycle.

Which, yes, still includes death. Lots and lots and lots of death.

While this is a non-spoiler review, the comments will be fair game for spoilers, because there is a lot to talk about.

How do you top Hereditary, with its eerie dollhouses and severed heads and Toni Collette’s incredibly raw performance? How, really, ...

When Welcome to Night Vale premiered its pilot episode in 2012, there was plenty to hook listeners, as Cecil Baldwin’s mellifluous voice speaking Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor’s distinctive words immediately crafted an eerie atmosphere of familiar but not. But there was something else that made a compelling first impression: Cecil’s loving descriptions of Carlos, the scientist with the perfect hair. Queer representation on the fictional radio, as matter-of-fact as everything else in Night Vale.

Seven years on, queer characters are found in every corner of the expanding audio drama world. So this list of recommendations is by no means exhaustive; it is simply one starting point based on the SFF series I’ve laughed, gasped, and teared up at. From radio-show hosts caught up in romantic fanfic tropes to stories that aren’t about ships but just about being a queer person in the world, these eight fiction podcasts are something ...

Like many people my age, my first exposure to queer texts was through fanfiction. Reading Firefly and RENT slash back in the early 2000s was an education in male/male tension and longing and, yes, sex. I’ve traded the same joke back and forth with fellow female fans that I knew all about gay sex before I even learned any of the mechanics of heterosexual intercourse. Even so, it all felt very binary. A character was either gay or straight. If they had interactions with both men and women, one of these experiences was just an excuse before they “chose a side.”

My favorite fantasy novels also had a healthy amount of sex, from Ranita Glasswright exploring her options to Alanna of Trebond gladly courting three (male) suitors at once before deciding which one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. But these were all straight romances, ...

Black Mirror season 5 "Striking Vipers" review Anthony Mackie

In the world of Black Mirror, the greatest tragedy occurs because of a moment of boredom. A man recounts driving down an unending stretch of road late at night—”and it’s boring,” he groans of that long, unbroken road, devoid of any stimulation or variety. It would be harsh, not to mention inaccurate, to call the latest season of Black Mirror boring, because a peek inside Charlie Brooker’s brain will always be amusing. However, five years into his dire predictions about humanity and technology, it’s getting harder and harder to be surprised.

In part it’s because we’ve seen the same narrative beats, presented more compellingly, in past installments: virtual reality as a space of freedom for queer identity; tragedy refracted and disseminated through social media; digital copies that assert their uniqueness even over their flesh-and-blood predecessors. But also this season’s three offerings, even the ones that skew more outlandish, ...

The Handmaid's Tale season 3 non-spoiler review

The Handmaid’s Tale certainly delights in its own striking visuals. Hulu’s dystopian series kicks off season 3 with the Waterfords’ home on fire—the bedroom, site of Ceremonial rapes; the kitchen, full of quiet rebellions; the empty nursery, all going up in flames. It seems to say we’re going to burn this shit down, borrowing a refrain from protests (in person and on social media) by those who have had enough. Or, a few episodes later, there’s the admittedly badass shot of Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) and June (Elisabeth Moss) coolly lighting up cigarettes side-by-side in a room, co-conspirators and, briefly, equals.

But in terms of actual destruction or change, it’s all just smoke. Last season, June turned her back on her chance of escape, handing baby Nichole to Emily (Alexis Bledel) to ferry to Canada and walking back into Gilead to rescue her other daughter, Hannah. And, presumably, burn ...

BookCon Tor Presents Magic x Mayhem Sarah Gailey Annalee Newitz Kel Kade V.E. Schwab Charlie Jane Anders Tamsyn Muir

“Fantasy is a reaction to reality,” Vengeful author V.E. Schwab said at Tor’s BookCon panel Magic x Mayhem in Science Fiction & Fantasy. “It is reality plus ‘what if’?” In the case of Magic x Mayhem, it’s what if we shifted away from good-versus-evil narratives to more messy, morally ambiguous characters? Like a private detective who lies to everyone but especially herself. Or a swordswoman used to looking out only for herself, who must stand up for the Ninth House of her birth. Or, Schwab’s favorite, villains.

Charlie Jane Anders (The City in the Middle of the Night) moderated a spirited panel featuring Tor Books and Tor.com Publishing authors Schwab, Tamsyn Muir (Gideon the Ninth), Sarah Gailey (Magic for Liars), Annalee Newitz (The Future of Another Timeline), and Kel Kade (Fate of the Fallen).

BookCon N.K. Jemisin Rebecca Roanhorse

“I grew up reading the same white boys on quests that everyone else did,” Rebecca Roanhorse said at BookCon’s most excellent Mashup of Time, Space, and Media, as the Trail of Lightning author sat down with N.K. Jemisin to talk creating and adapting speculative fiction. A mashup of time, or perhaps a freezing of it—the conversation lasted a mere half hour, yet every minute was interesting. From these two women of color commiserating over the white boy quests they read in childhood, to writing figures more like themselves into future quests, this panel was as varied as the definition of spec fic itself.

Day 2 of BookCon brought together a quartet of authors of impress imaginations to discuss The Magic of Worldbuilding and the worldbuilding of magic, from characters coming to N.K.

BookCon fanfiction Tamsyn Muir Tochi Onyebuchi Brooke Bolander Katharine Duckett Tor.com Publishing

The BookCon panel For Fans, By Fans: Fanfiction Addiction can best be summed up by the moment when Riot Baby author Tochi Onyebuchi mentioned a Superman fanfic about Martha Kent shooting every time traveler who tries to kill baby Clark—and then an audience member piped up with the name of the fic, and suddenly all the attendees were distracted bookmarking Empty Graves by Unpretty to read after they were finished gushing about fanfiction.

The panel featured four Tor.com Publishing authors with varying relationships to fic writing: Onyebuchi, who says “Gundam Wing MADE ME”; Tamsyn Muir (Gideon the Ninth) and Brooke Bolander (The Only Harmless Great Thing), who met in the Final Fantasy 7 fandom; and Katharine Duckett, whose Miranda in Milan is queer Shakespeare fanfiction.

Moderated by The Mary Sues’ Princess Weekes, the discussion ranged from thoughtful commentary on fanfiction as a subversive, queer, ...

Rainbow Rowell Talks Wayward Son Headcanons and Harry Potter at BookCon

In the four years since her Harry Potter-inspired fantasy Carry On was published, author Rainbow Rowell said at BookCon, even when she was immersed in other projects, “the back of my brain never leaves Baz Pitch.” And who could blame her? For all that Carry On is an excellent subversion of the Chosen One archetype, its most memorable character is cranky queer vampire Tyrannus “Baz” Basilton Grimm-Pitch, who finds himself in love with his roommate/enemy, the aforementioned Chosen One Simon Snow. And with this fall’s follow-up Wayward Son, readers get more of Baz’s story.

Wayward Son represents many things for Rowell: her first sequel, the first book that readers were clamoring for during the writing of it, a genre crossover of the fantasy world she’s slowly been exploring with an all-American road trip story.

Netflix Reveals Black Mirror Season 5 Episode Titles and Teasers

Black Mirror season 5 episode titles teasers Striking Vipers Smithereens Ashley Too

The first trailer for Netflix’s Black Mirror season 5 (coming in just a few weeks) teased plenty of eye-popping visuals and potential storylines for its impressive roster of guest stars, while still keeping most of the plot blurry. With just a few weeks until the new season drops, Netflix has shared three new teasers, one for each episode, revealing the titles for each dystopian near-future tale. This time around, virtual assistants, fertility apps, and ride-shares are the pieces of tech that bring out the worst in their human consumers.

As the initial trailer might have hinted, the surprise casting of Miley Cyrus has the popstar pulling double duty as, well, a popstar, but also an Alexa-like personal device modeled after her brand. But while lonely teen Rachel is delighted at her new friend, the original Ashley seems to be spiraling, in “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too.” OK, which aspect ...

Black Mirror season 5 trailer

After last fall’s interactive special Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, it was unclear if Netflix’s dystopian series would return soon for a fifth season, or if Bandersnatch, with all its branching paths, counted as enough material for a season on its own. Today, Netflix made clear that there will be a new season of Charlie Brooker’s cautionary tales—”three new stories about the future that we should have seen coming”—and it’s coming soon, in the first week of June.

It’s a shorter season than usual, to be sure, but each episode seems to have a fascinating lead: Anthony Mackie, seemingly happily married yet tempted by some sort of dating app; Andrew Scott, driven to desperation by the constant bleep-blooping (his words) of people tethered to their phones at all times; and Miley Cyrus, as some worldwide phenomenon who must have her own dangerous relationship to technology.

Avengers: Endgame Marvel Cinematic Universe what rewards do superheroes deserve Avengers group shot

The first time the Avengers save the world, all they want is a drink. And to try that schwarma place.

But over the following years, as each subsequent appeal to save the world consistently raises the stakes, it prompts the question: If Earth keeps calling on the Avengers, what reward could possibly balance out those increasingly heightened risks? Are superheroes entitled to any recompense beyond the gratitude of the survivors? Grappling as it does with the duty to try versus the temptation of walking away from the fight, Avengers: Endgame also examines what, if anything, superheroes are owed.

What even constitutes a reward for the person who has all the power, all the training, all the courage to be capable of saving the world? It’s redemption, like Natasha’s attempts to wipe clean the red in her ledger. In Clint’s case, it’s a secret family and a safe house off the ...

8 Instances of SFF Hyper-Worldbuilding That Truly Go Above and Beyond


This post is by Natalie Zutter from Tor.com Frontpage Partial - Blog and Story Content


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Authors build elaborate worlds through everything from carefully-chosen foods to amateur map-making to breathtakingly detailed wikis, their attention to detail a signal that these are worlds worthy of getting lost in. Often these are specific moments in the text, or a helpful hand-drawn atlas bookending the epic adventure, or a bonus feature that’s just a click away. But some storytellers go the extra mile, embedding worldbuilding details into their texts as a sort of “found footage”—fictional childhood stories, comic books, or newspaper clippings that appear as excerpts throughout the larger work, and sometimes spill out into the real world.

Crack a book, cross a bridge, hop a spaceship, and check out these eight stories that are wonderfully extra when it comes to worldbuilding, creating children’s stories that can hold up to the classics, spinning off into picture books drawn from your nightmares, or even spawning entirely new real-world book franchises. ...

The 100 May Be Bonkers As Hell, But It Has Some of the Best Worldbuilding on TV

The 100 worldbuilding opening credits Trigedasleng

In 2149, on the future-Earth of The 100, mutated gorillas and two-faced deer give Annihilation a run for its money. Middle-aged adults defer to teenagers/20-something kids in typical dystopian fashion, treating them as prophets or healers or Chosen One leaders. Leather corsets are casual fashion choices. One of the series’ most dramatic deaths was filmed so over-the-top, with some overlay/split-screen effect, that I can’t help but laugh every time they reference it in the “previously on” section. Everything about this show is extra AF.

But it’s this commitment to the biggest possible choices that lets you know that you’re in good hands when it comes to The 100’s worldbuilding. The people who decided it makes perfect sense for the show’s doctor to perform impromptu surgery in a leather harness are the same ones who drop Easter eggs into the opening credits, who build layer upon layer of story ...

I still remember finishing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in the middle of the night in summer 2007, crying as I turned the final page, mostly out of the catharsis of a solid series ending. Harry’s seven years at Hogwarts—which I spent about seven years experiencing in real time, between reading and waiting for the books from 2000 to 2007—is a compelling chapter of the larger wizarding world of J.K. Rowling. And while the series has since spun into a multimedia franchise, exploring both the past in the Fantastic Beasts movies and the future in Cursed Child, I’ve never felt the same connection to the expanded universe as I did to the original novels. But as someone who grew up writing fanfiction for a variety of fandoms—including, yes, 100-word Harry Potter drabbles—I feel that the real successors of Rowling’s incredible imagination are the variety of responses from ...

Two months after Y, the television adaptation of Brian K.

The series will remain at FX, with the network beginning the search for a new showrunner.

Last night, Croal (Luke Cage) and Green (American GodsBlade Runner 2049) released a statement over Twitter thanking their cast and crew for their hard work and expressing their sadness that the series “in its current form” would not be moving forward:

The wording of the statement made it sound as if FX might have reversed the series order. However, Entertainment Weekly confirmed with the network that it was ...
