The Calculating Stars is an alternative history book that can easily be compared with the popular Hidden Figures movie. Here, intelligent women fight for the right to pilot colonization spaceships as Earth’s people attempt to escape a pending disaster.
It’s all the rage now to take classic literature and twist it somehow by adding undead or other monsters. The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe by Peter Clines, H.P. Lovecraft, and Daniel Defoe does that, and does it well.
Michael’s got a quick announcement for his reader’s.
Michael’s back with a game just over a decade and a half old for this week’s Retro Game Friday. It’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell!
Michael’s back with another first arc in an Isekai series for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday. It’s House Magic Chapters 1-29 by Amaui Shiro!
Michael’s back with the second book in the Alpha World series for this week’s Bookish Wednesday. It’s Forming the Company by Daniel Schinhofen!
Our reviewer had so much fun reading Patrick S. Tomlinson’s Gate Crashers that he dares to compare it with The Hitchhiker’s Guild to the Galaxy. Buckle up for nonstop laughter, quirky snark and hardcore sci-fi adventure if you start turning these pages.
Michael’s back with an answer to a question he’s been asked about recently for this week’s Video Game Tuesday. It’s about Is Cayde-6 Really Dead for Good?

Michael’s back with a movie starring one of his favorite actors for this week’s Movie Monday. It’s Bicentennial Man!
