I absolutely loved Take Us To Your Chief, by Drew Hayden Taylor, which was just as funas its cover promised, and meaningful in a way I should have expected. Because while there is indeed something incongruous about First Nations’ science fiction, it’s only because I’ve never read any, not because...Read more of this blog post »
This morning I got in from the gym and realised I had 30 minutes until I needed to leave for my first meeting.
