A Wild Cards story whose Tor.com appearance last year I somehow missed. I'm more than a little bored of satires of Hollywood vacuity (people there are superficial, backbiting and lack an understanding of history? Really?), and while I can certainly enjoy a hateful narrator, they need to be executed with a certain pizzazz. Pop Tart, alas, is merely annoying – Miss Piggy with teleportation powers.

Another Tor.com short story

OMG I hate her! The writer did an excellent job on her narrative voice, because she's the perfect selfish wannabe actress. Good job Walter Jon Williams.

Another story in the Wild Cards Universe (which one ought to say the same way they say Marvel Cinematic Universe). Not being familiar with the characters ahead of time might be a slight issue, once you realize that these people all knew each other previously. And the illustration almost gives away the ending.
