Review – Hidden Figures

By guest columnist dyron_rises

Hidden Figures, adapted from the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shettery, follows three female African-American mathematicians who made several notable contributions to NASA, such as launching the first American astronaut (the late John Glenn) into orbit, while working as part of the Langley Research Center’s West Area Computing Unit division, and overcoming the racial and sexist attitudes of 1960’s Virginia when Jim Crow laws were in full effect and women weren’t getting their due.

Binary System Podcast #66 – Comics, Movies, and Cosplay

No new Welcome To Night Vale episode to recap this week. But never fear, the BSP team is more than willing to blather on about the comics we’re reading, the movies we’re watching, and then have a long discussion about what cosplay items are becoming a no-go (Elizabeth: wigs, Kathryn: anything that’s worn too close to my throat) and why a cosplay based on the Session Twins from Matt Wagner’s Grendel Quest might be a little too obscure for most people to get.

Review: The Shotgun Arcana

Review: The Shotgun Arcana

In the two years since I finished The Six Gun Tarot – the first book of the Golgotha series and R.S. Belcher’s debut novel – I’ve managed to read his urban fantasies Nightwise and The Brotherhood of the Wheel, and enjoyed the heck out of both of them. I just found out that the third book of the Golgotha series is coming out in June, so I’ve now officially run out of reasons to put off reading the second.

The Shotgun Arcana starts decades before the main story, with Malachi Bick – prominent Golgotha town citizen and also exiled angel – joining the rescue party that finds out exactly how some of the members of the Donner Party managed to survive being trapped in the frozen wilderness with no food. Only in this version of 1840’s California, an ancient relic was responsible for sparking the atrocities that winter. The relic’s influence is contagious, and spreading fast.

Twenty-three years later, the most horrible people from around the world find themselves called to Nevada. A tiny town on the edge of the 40-Mile desert is becoming the nexus of murderers and cannibals (and worse), along with angelic battles, mad science, Pinkerton detectives, American-Indian magic, and a trapped horror from the dawn of humanity. Things are about to get very weird in the town of Golgotha.

They might, just possibly, get even weirder than they already are.

REVIEW: Sherlock S4 Ep2 Various Observations and Fangirling (Contains Spoilers)

Not a minute by minute review, but does contain spoilers, a little profanity and a ton of jumping to conclusions.

Welcome back to the crazy world of Sherlock. I survived Episode 1, barely. I tried not to get on social media and read any speculations for episode 2. I did okay, but here I am talking about the second episode and all my thoughts wander to what in the hell is going to happen next? But before we talk about the future let’s talk about episode 2.

Binary System Podcast #65 – Sherlock and Rogue One

We know you thought the Binary System Podcast was made up of calm, thoughtful people, capable of discussing things in a composed, professional manner. That is, if you’ve never listened to an episode before. Tune in as the twins lose their $h*t over Sherlock and StarWars: Rogue One. Loudly. With much squeeing.

Mwa ha haaaa!

*Ahem* Sorry, got a little carried away there. Click the jump for a list, in no particular order, of my ten favorite books from 2016.
