Secret Aliens

Posted: 29 March, 2016 at 4:31 pm   /   Opinion pieces

I think at one time or another everyone has wondered if they have a special place in the world. During adolescence, the idea that there is something that makes us lesser than our peers is a normal part of growing up. I think this is why the alien within concept appeals to me so much […]

Godsfire (Cynthia Felice)

Posted: 29 March, 2016 at 4:22 pm   /   SF Mistressworks

It’s not all that often the cover art on a science fiction novel gives a good indication of what’s inside, but Godsfire actually does a halfway decent job of setting out precisely what the reader can expect to find.

Sexy & Cerebral Comics for the #SFR Crowd

Posted: 29 March, 2016 at 1:05 pm   /   The Cosmic Lounge with Heather Massey

There’s so much to love about comic books. Comics are great in large part because they deliver the visuals of a film with the coziness of a book. Not only that, but with more adult-oriented comics being made than ever before, stories can include nudity, sex scenes, adult themes, and gritty action. I’m a fan […]

Your Guide to Sci-Fi Romance Movies

Posted: 24 December, 2015 at 1:40 pm   /   The Cosmic Lounge with Heather Massey

Sci-fi romance movies aren’t always described as such, but they run the gamut from big budget, mainstream releases to obscure independent films.
