Sandra: Nominate your favorite books (and podcasts) for a Hugo
Locus recommended reading list for 2015 books
Joanna: On a different note, they've cast Shadow from American Gods and, at least to me, he's well within spec for the mixed-race character. Yay for not completely screwing it up!?
Kristina: Altered Carbon to become a show on Netflix!
Andrew: For all those who enjoyed our read through "City of Stairs", Robert Jackson Bennett's sequel, though not available on Amazon until the 26th of this month, is available at most bookstores and through pre-order. Check out "City of Blades" and purchase using the special S&L link I've included below, so that our fabulous hosts get some money for the referral URL."
