Weekend Links: February 13, 2016

This week’s link post is late because I spent a good deal of the day going to a play, Lauren Gunderson‘s The Revolutionists at Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park. It’s incredible, and it’s here until March 6, so if you are in or near Cincinnati in the next three weeks, I highly recommend trying to get tickets.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, if that’s a thing you’re into. The Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog has a decent list of 11 Stories of Truly Science Fictional Romance that has more than just the usual suspects on it.

I just discovered Miike Snow’s music video for “Ghengis Khan,” which is a delightful little romance in just four minutes:

If you’re a Parks and Recreation fan, you probably know that February 13th is Galentine’s Day, which makes it a great day to read this Bitch Media post on Rat Queens and the Power of Female Friendship and then check out their whole Alphabet of Graphic Novels by Women.

It’s been a big week over at Women in Science Fiction. They’ve got a new Women in Fantasy Story Bundle available, and a new anthology, Women of Futures Past, that just became available for preorder.

Also available for preorder is Kameron Hurley’s The Stars Are Legion, which just had a cover reveal over at io9.

Tor.com has collected the cover art for all of their spring and summer titles for 2016.

Lightspeed’s POC Destroy SF! Kickstarter has just 6 days left, and they’re still just a little shy of unlocking POC Destroy Fantasy. The Destroy SF project has been excellent from its inception a couple of years ago, and I have every reason to expect this year’s issues will continue that tradition.

Awards season continues to chug along, with shortlists and recommended reading popping up all over.

The British Science Fiction Association posted their shortlist last weekend.

Apex Magazine has a list, with links, of all their award-eligible fiction from 2015.

The Philip K. Dick Awards nominees have been revealed, and you can sign up at their website for a chance to win copies of all of them.

Rocket Stack Rank is a nice resource if you’re looking for short fiction to nominate for this year’s Hugo Awards.

The finalists for the 30th Annual Asimov’s Readers’ Awards can be found listed–with links!–over at SF Signal.

In other free fiction news, there’s a brand spanking new (and quite sharp-looking) site for perusing the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

I’ve been meaning to read some Lois McMaster Bujold for a couple of years now, so I may be putting this “Where to Start with Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga” post to good use sometime soonish.

At Ars Technica, Nick Farmer talks about the Belter language he created for SyFy’s The Expanse.

The Book Smugglers have a great guest post from Foz Meadows about her new novella, Coral Bones, and being genderqueer.

It looks like Bryan Fuller is going to be show running CBS’s new Star Trek project.

The Wertzone has a pretty comprehensive list of all the genre adaptations currently in development for film and television.

There are a bunch of new Game of Thrones Pop! Vinyls coming soon, but I only care about Melisandre and Margaery.
