in a good way

She's coming back! All together now: UNBREAKABLE!

It’s Friday everyone!

  1. The brilliant Lightspeed Magazine is currently running a Kickstarter for their People of Color Destroy Science Fiction edition. Their updates are fantastic personal essays. Go. Read. Now.

  3. There’s a petition to name one of four additions to the periodic table after Terry Pratchett’s color of magic. You can sign here 🙂
  4. Despite generally being Marvel loyalists, this is an interesting choice of setting for the Wonder Woman movie. 1
  5. In Netflix news, Jessica Jones is getting a second season, and Kimmy Schmidt returns April 15th.
  6. So the guys who said Pluto wasn’t a planet anymore may have found a new ninth planet in our solar system.
  7. Writer Truths.
  8. Obligatory: There’s a new Suicide Squad trailer.23
  9. And, of course, Aladdin isn’t actually a story from the Thousand and One Arabian Nights. That just figures…
  10.  Legendary science fiction and fantasy editor David G. Hartwell passed away this week. He wore fantastic ties.
