Victories Greater Than Death Cover

Victories Greater Than Death – Maybe Just Small Ones

Victories Greater Than Death by Charlie Jane Anders is the wokest space adventure I’ve ever been on and it was awesome. The book establishes pronouns for characters, celebrates gender identity and expression, displays love in all forms, and showcases a diverse cast of humans and aliens that would make the galaxy proud. And while I…

Descender Vol. 3: Singularities – Prequel Puzzle Pieces

It does all of this in a relatively small package of about 300 pages. It is…

The Descent Of The Drowned – Pull Me Under

I have perfectly curated my Instagram feed to solely feature artists that create book (and Star Wars) fan art. It’s glorious. I love seeing how people bring my favorite characters to life, and I indulge in each unique style and expression. I share this because this is how I discovered The Descent of the Drowned…

The Space Between Two Deaths – Uncomfortably Enjoyable

I prefer to get weird with my reading sometimes, and often that can be hard when there are so many releases. Especially when those releases fit into nicely worn grooves, adding to a genre or subgenre I feel immersed in. I am obviously more comfortable reading science fiction, especially if it's a space opera, near…

Are you happy with your life? Have your choices led you down the right path? How can you ever know what the right path is?
