“I do not care what comes after; I have seen the dragons on the wind of morning.” .
Ursula Le Guin, we are so sad to see you go. Sci Fi Queen, Anthropologist of Imagined Worlds, Great Teller of Tales, you forged a path that inspired so many. 💙
Ursula K Le Guin refuses to blurb an all-male anthology saying: "the tone of which is so self-contentedly, exclusively male, like a club, like a locker room. That would not be magnamity, but foolishness. Gentlemen, I just don't belong here". "At a young age, Ms. Le Guin immersed herself in books about mythology, among them James Frazier’s “The Golden Bough,” classic fantasies like Lord Dunsany’s “A Dreamer’s Tales,” and the science-fiction magazines of the day. But in early adolescence she lost interest in science fiction, because, she recalled, the stories “seemed to be all about hardware and soldiers: White men go forth and conquer the universe.” First image via @maggiejordanacn on Twitter

A new sequel to the original Robocop!
I'll buy that for a dollar!💲
One of my favourite franchises.
I really hope this will happen even though I liked Robocop 2.
Robocop 3 was a joke, no not a good one. 😂

Honoring the powerful, full life of Ursula Le Guin tonight. This is one of my favorite quotes from her. She taught me so much about how to truly change the world for the better. About how talking about what you don’t want simply gives it more power. About how the work of creating peace and justice is the work of imagination. About how to design a deep, compelling, vision of the world we want to see, and then create it moment by moment, right here and now. Her work calls me daily to take the energy I could spend tearing something down and use it to build up something new. If we can dream it, we can be it. Let’s speak new worlds into existence together. 🙏💙👽✨

What really happened that night at Lizard Point. When the witness, the victim and the accused all find themselves trapped together the knifes after drawn and someone's blood is tinted with that of a murderer to bring this haunting fight to an end.
Absolutely LOVED this book and all it's twists and turns. It went back and forth between present and past tense which was just the perfect amount of back tracking and current suspense. My favourite part of the book was the final page where these were the last words.
"All those years playing pool taught me about trajectory and precision, and I also learnt how to bluff. I knew exactly what I was doing as my fingertips bounced the knife Kit's way, and I watched with satisfaction as his faithless hand closed around the hilt"
