Hugo Nominations 2014

Galactic Suburbia the John Campbell Memorial not a Hugo Episode 


In which we do discuss the Hugo shortlists both Retro and Current, but this is not an episode. Not at all. For... administrative reasons. 


  Hugo Shortlist

Brandon Sanderson says interesting things about fandom groups, and the Wheel of Time nomination. 


  Some gender notes on the Hugo shortlist 

 Tansy’s Hugo links post 

 Tansy & John DeNardo of SF Signal discuss the shortlist on Coode Street Podcast

In which we approach Fringe from multiple sides, rant about Game of Thrones, muse about cake lit and Alisa is a PhD student again!

Tansy: Game of Thrones rant, Jenny Colgan novels, Jago & Litefoot 7, Yonderland!

CAKE COMPETITION! For our 100th episode, we would like to have a new logo. On a cake. Designed by you. Send a picture of your creation and you could win… something… and you can eat the cake, too. (This is episode 98, so you’ve got 4 or 5 weeks to plan your creation.)

Episode 97: 2 April 2014

Episode 97: Spoilerific Special - Veronica Mars 


In which a long time ago, we used to be friends, but I haven't heard from you lately at all - come on now, sugah, bring it on, bring it on. Just remember me when 

It's the Kickstarted Veronica Mars Movie Squeeful Spoilerific Special! 

With Alex away stargazing, Alisa and Tansy dig into the nitty gritty of the recent release movie we had been waiting YEARS for. We talk about the history of the show (SPOILERS FOR ALL OF VERONICA MARS, NOT JUST THE MOVIE), the writing, the characters, the love stories, the murders, the stars and the in-jokes.

We also talk about the Kickstarter campaign and its ramifications for a TV industry teetering on the brink of a total rebirth. 


Are you Team Logan, Team Piz, Team Mac or (most importantly of all) Team Veronica? Does a soundbyte of a certain Dandy Warhols song make you break into a smile? Were you so disheartened at the end of Season 3 that you watched all of Party Down to get over the sad? Come on down to Galactic Suburbia. 

People say we're a marshmallow.
