This New Space Colonization Novel Will Mess With Your Head In The Best Possible Way

Planetfall by Emma Newman isn’t what you’re expecting from a book about humans colonizing another planet. It’s much weirder, and in the end, a fair bit darker. This is a story about human failings—and the fact that we expect to understand alien beings, when we can’t even understand each other.

It’s ‘Back to the Future II’ Day this week: Look back, look forward … and party | Things to do in Tampa Bay | Tampa Bay Times

The 1985 movie that started it all turned 30 this summer, but more importantly, Wednesday is Oct. 21, 2015 — a.k.a. the date that Marty McFly travels forward in time to in Back to the Future II. There are plenty of parties and a chance to relive the movie on the big screen, but it also seems like a great time for a little reflection, too. So we asked our Things to Do crew to look back and look forward because, after all, it’s Back to the Future.

Scifi Book Club – The Sword and Laser

I heard about The Sword and Laser book club on the TWiT podcast and thought it would be cool to join up. The next book in the list is Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. I am hoping to get through my current read in time. If you haven’t read Pandora’s Star and Judas Unchained, I highly recommend them.
