Upcoming Reviews

Sci-Fi November is a month-long blog event hosted by Rinn Reads and Over The Effing Rainbow. It was created to celebrate everything amazing about science fiction. From TV shows to movies, books to comics, and everything else in between, it was intended to help us share our love and passion for this genre and its many, many fandoms.

Since I’m posting this the day after my first Sci-Fi Month post went up, most of should already know what I’m participating but here is what I will be reviewing:

  • Uncanny Magazine Issue 6 (September/October 2015)
  • Seveneves by Neal Stephenson
  • ODY-C, Vol 1. by Matt Fraction and Christian Ward
  • Switch #1 (Switch #1) by Stjepan Šejić
  • Axcend #1 (Axcend #1) by Shane Davis

I will also be posting a non-fiction story about myself titled: Zombies on Plane


Next Escapes?

Currently reading The Hero of Ages and then going to start working my way through A Knight of Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin.

What do you plan on reading?
