I Spy Sci-Fi: A Guessing Game

I Spy Sci-Fi Header
When planning posts for Sci-Fi Month, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was create some Fun & Games posts for the event. It's the category that receives the least contributions, even though it allows for the greatest amount of creativity. My previous Sci-Fi Month Fun & Games posts include the Sci-Fi Bingo Card 2014, Bookish Finds: Leonard Ulian's Book Art, and the Sci-Fi YA Periodic Table. And today, my dear friends, I bring you my last Fun & Game post for Sci-Fi Month (which...

Why Young Adult Dystopias Are True Science Fiction | Guest Post from Mark @ SciFi365

Why Young Adult Dystopias Are True Science Fiction | Guest Post from Mark @ SciFi365
One of the most frequently debated topics among fandoms of all kinds is whether such-and-such really fits into that fandom. For example, you'll find plenty of people out there in internetland discussing whether Doctor Who is 'really' Steampunk or whether, God help us, Motley Crue is 'really' Heavy Metal.

Quiz: Who is Your Virtual Bookish Boyfriend/Girlfriend?

Quiz: Who is Your Virtual Bookish Boyfriend/Girlfriend?
Who is Your Virtual Bookish Boyfriend/Girlfriend? Since this week my theme is about virtual reality, I wanted to have a fun quiz that would fit along with that theme. People have asked me in the past to do some sort of "book boyfriend" quiz, so I thought it might be fitting. Though our world doesn't yet have the depth of any kind of virtual reality technology explored in fiction, that doesn't mean we're not at a point where friendships and relationships can form in virtual-ish environments....
