قادتنى ظروف الكحة الشديدة وحساسية الجيوب الأنفية إلى حالة أرق استعصى معها النوم فأخذت أقلب على الفلاش ميمورى الرابض فى ثنايا اليو إس بى فى تلفازى حتى عثرت على هذا المسلسل الرائع المرايا السوداء الجزء الأول.
لم أقرأ من قبل الكتاب ولكن تم ترشيح المسلسل لى من قبل صديق أثق فى ترشيحاته بشدة.
المسلسل إنتاج شبكة نتفلكس الأمريكية مكون خمسة أجزاء الجزء الأول الذى بين أيدينا يتكون فقط من ثلاث حلقات سأترككم فور الانتهاء من قراءة البمراجعة إلى مشاهدته ولذا اعترف هنا أننى وللمرة الأولى على صفحات هذ

Cory Doctorow, Claire North and Sylvain Neuvel are writing the novellas for this volume!!! Little Brother blew my damned mind when I read it as a teen and The Themis Files may just be my favourite ongoing SF series (I gave up on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August but feel bad about it) so this all sounds splendid! Now we just need to get Ken Liu to write for one of these volumes.

what do you MEAN 2025
This book reminded me why I no longer enjoy science fiction as much as I used to. Back in the 1960's and 1970's, science fiction was all about the future, a time that did not yet exist, and so it was exciting to imagine all kinds of possibilities about it. Unfortunately, nowadays, science fiction is taking place right now, in the present, and it is not exciting, it is horrible to be stuck in it and forced to deal with it. Plus the worst to come seems right over the horizon.

So I will probably no

I'm really excited for this literary telling of Black Mirror. The show is fantastic & I hope the book includes stories similarly crafted in tone to the romantically heart-wrenching & quietly domestic 'Be Right Back' & the strange complexity/excellent introduction to this technological dystopian universe 'USS Callister'.

A thing of beauty. And the story about how Channel 4 kicked Charlie and Co. to the kerb will leave you wanting to give the old curmudgeon the biggest of hugs.
