Sci-Fi Biweekly Bulletin: Brightburn, Her Silhouette Drawn in Water, etc

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, of course, a giveaway of a completely amazeballs book.

Book cover for Her Silhouette, Drawn in Water

Her Silhouette, Drawn in Water – Vylar Kaftan – May 21st, 2019

All Bee has ever known is darkness.

She doesn’t remember the crime she committed that landed her in the cold, twisting caverns of the prison planet Colel-Cab with only fellow prisoner Chela for company. Chela says that they’re telepaths and mass-murderers; that they belong here, too dangerous to ever be free. Bee has no reason to doubt her—until she hears the voice of another telepath, one who has answers, and can open her eyes to an entirely different truth.

Sci-Fi on the Web

On this day in 1977 Star Wars was premiered. Wonder what ever happened to it?

A Senator is cracking down on gaming loot crates (not the physical boxes people receive but referring to the in-game item ‘roulettes’). I think it’s fair because a lot of them prey on children.

GracieKat is not that into nor knowledgeable about space (Lilyn can attest to this) but this needs a watch – Harrison Ford narrates Neil Armstrong’s doc in Armstrong’s own words.

Welp, we’re off to YouTube because these are a must watch. To promote Black Mirror’s new season there are a series of Latinx shorts!

GracieKat has always been a Sony girl buuut these Godzilla themed XBox Ones are freaking awesome

In case you missed it – here are the 2019 Nebula Award Winners
