I enjoyed All the Birds in the Sky way more than I thought I would. It's pop-y and light but it's also fun, and it doesn't think that everything and everyone is shit. It also subverts the gender role binary it feints towards nicely, imo.

I opened the first page of TLTL the other night and had to close it again, because I don't get why Palmer is so into the Enlightenment. I read the author's note about her wanting to "join the conversation"…of dudes…and I just am not into rehashing problematic things as a way of "satirizing" them. It is possible to do the sort of thing that Palmer is trying to do, I think, because Samuel R. Delany did it in Trouble on Triton. But unless you're Samuel R. Delany, I think people should not try.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
