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.

The Outside – Ada Hoffman – June 3, 2019
The Pride of Jai was supposed to be humanity’s greatest accomplishment—a space station made entirely by humans and their primitive computers, without “divine” cyber-technology provided by the sentient quantum supercomputers worshipped as Gods. And it was supposed to be a personal triumph for its young lead scientist, physicist Yasira Shien, whose innovative mathematics was key to the reactor powering it.
But something goes wrong in Yasira’s reactor, leading to an unexplained singularity that destroys The Pride of Jai and most of the people on it—and placing Yasira in the sights of angry Angels, the cyborg servants of the Gods.
According to the angels, Yasira’s reactor malfunction was the latest in a rising tide of disasters, intentionally caused to exploit vulnerabilities in the very pattern of spacetime and usher in horrific beings from beyond reality itself. They believe that the woman behind the disasters is Yasira’s long-vanished mentor, Dr Evianna Talirr—and they believe that Yasira, Dr Talirr’s favorite student, is the only one who can help them find her.
Spirited off to the edge of the galaxy and with her whole planet’s fate, and more, hanging in the balance, Yasira must decide who to trust: the ruthless angels she was always taught to obey without question—or the heretic scientist whose plans could change everything she knows to be true about reality.

Sci-Fi on the Web
CBS has renewed Twilight Zone for a second season! So, those of you that have seen it, how is it?
Apparently there are some fan edits of Avengers: Endgame floating around on sites like BitTorrent. This one calls for an LGBT, PoC to play Captain Marvel while this one aims to be the trashiest edit, removing all of the “feminism and gay shit” from it. It’s sad that we’re in 2019 and people can’t even watch a movie without bitching about something.
If you’re looking for some interesting indie games from aspiring game creators check out itch.io. GracieKt has played some and was very impressed with the quality of them Especially a game called Feelings that was put out by a certain kitten by the name of Tiny Tentacle. OK, GracieKat’s mom moment over, promise! So impressed, in fact, that there may be some reviews popping up on site in the future!
Also if you just want to play around with some nice pixels then try Piskel. A free sprite creator. It’s really fun!
