Sci-Fi Biweekly Bulletin: The Feed, Maze Runner: Death Cure, and a Giveaway from Sinister Grin Press!

The Sci-Fi Biweekly Bulletin Banner

From spaceships to alternate history, and other worlds to nanites, science fiction is a fascinating genre of rather amazing depth that many talented writers happily delve into on a daily basis. And we, the curators here at Sci-Fi & Scary, aren’t even going to talk about a tenth of it right now. However, what you will get is a selection of movies, books, and interesting articles from across the net. Also, there’s a strong potential for puns, gifs, and a moderate amount of fangirling.

And, as promised, a huge giveaway from Sinister Grin Press!

Well, for you Maze Runner fans out there (I haven’t seen one yet), you probably already know today is going to be an a-maze-ing day, as Maze Runner: Death Cure hits theatres!

 

Movie Poster for Maze Runner: Death Cure

Maze Runner: Death Cure synopsis: Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.

Starring:  Dylan O’BrienKi Hong LeeKaya Scodelario (TBH, the only one I recognize is Ki Hong Lee, and that’s because he was in the not-so-great Wish Upon)

But, honestly, I think most of are looking forward to Friday next, aren’t we? I’m not even a fan of Marvel movies anymore, and I’m excited about Black Panther.

Black Panther synopsis: T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

Starring: Chadwick BosemanMichael B. JordanLupita Nyong’o

A black director, a nearly all-black cast, and a story-line about a “sh*thole” place that managed to do amazing things for its people? (At least according to what I’ve read.) What is there about that to not be excited about? Let’s hope it’s not ruined by the Marvel tendency to force in one-liners whenever possible whether it’s needed or not.

Ryan Coogler did good with Creed. Let’s hope he does fantastic with Black Panther.

Book cover for The Feed

The Feed – Nick Clarke – January 23rd, 2018

THE FEED by Nick Clark Windo is a startling and timely debut which presents a world as unique and vividly imagined as STATION ELEVEN and THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS and explores what it is to be human in the digital age.

It makes us. It destroys us. 

The Feed is everywhere. It can be accessed by anyone, at any time. Every interaction, every emotion, every image can be shared through it.

Tom and Kate use The Feed, but they have resisted addiction to it. And this will serve them well when The Feed collapses.

Until their six-year-old daughter, Bea, goes missing.

Because how do you find someone in a world devoid of technology? And what happens when you can no longer trust that your loved ones are really who they claim to be?

Sci-Fi on the Web

I love Quantum Leap and this article at SyFy makes a good argument why it should be given the reboot.

Also on SyFy they look at Annihilation’s de-codeable Twitter campaign

Nintendo is working on a new Super Mario Bros. movie. Hopefully it’s better than the abomination with Bod Hoskins and John Leguizamo

Satellites going places attached to rockets…I got nothing

A long-lost satellite has been heard from…very heartwarming

  1. Another omission from your ‘Moon’ list is Destination Moon. For 1950 it’s one of the more accurate depictions of such a trip and is based on Rocket Ship Galileo by Robert A. Heinlein. Heinlein also served as a screenwriter and technical adviser for the film.
