A round-up of everything Reviews & Robots, and beyond! Get up to date on last week’s articles, find a few yaasss-worthy things in sci-fi for the week, and check out the upcoming books I’m adding to my reading list.
Previous Week’s Reviews/Articles
- 2018 Hugo’s: Dramatic Long Form
- Amazing Fan Art (2018 Hugo’s)
- 2018 Hugo’s: Professional Fan Art
- Review: Embers of War

- The Robots of Gotham, by Todd McAulty – this novel is a beast, but I’m loving it so far!
- The Calculating Stars: A Lady Astronaut Novel, by Marie Robinette Kowal
- Gate Crashers, by Patrick S. Tomlinson
- First off, settle an argument for me. Is a movie like The Incredibles considered science fiction? I keep going back and forth between superhero films being sci-fi, versus just being action adventure. TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!
- ANOTHER MURDERBOT BOOK – and this time, it’s a novel! If you haven’t read these yet:
- Drop what you’re doing and buy the first two now.
- Read them voraciously and be obsessed.
- Pre-order the next two and wait impatiently.
- Extremely relevant article from Kameron Hurley on humanity and maybe finding a bit of hope in fiction – read it here.
- I was a bit over zealous last week – it’s becoming clear I won’t be able to read all of the Hugo novels, novellas, novelettes and short stories. I’m going to try my hardest but no promises (I say to myself).
- Saw Ant-Man and the Wasp on Friday – it was fun, with some crazy science (maybe pseudo-science?) and a couple of interesting developments to the cinematic universe. Overall, it felt similar to the recent Han Solo movie: fun, with a lot going on, but maybe not completely necessary.
- Also saw Sorry to Bother You and wow, that’s a crazy film. I was surprised at the science fiction aspects of it – I didn’t know what to expect tbh. Definitely check it out – there are so many relevant conversations and points going on about the current state of the world and the absurdity of our country.
