  1. I’m way behind on this year’s Sci-Fi, but I did manage to catch Arrival. That had to be the best Sci-Fi movie I’d seen in a long time. Well deserved.

    • I am really behind with the reading. I’ll have a review of a 2017 novel and a graphic novel next week. Both could be contenders for next year.

      N. K. Jemisin’s a good writer, but I wasn’t quite as taken by The Fifth Season as some people, and didn’t read the sequel that won the Hugo this year. YMMV: a lot of people really love her work.

      I would agree that Arrival is the best pick for its category, and The Expanse really picked up its game in Season Two.

      And Ellen Datlow once took positive note of a story I wrote, so I won’t argue with that pick.
