Geek Book Club 002 – The Three-Body Problem

An incredible undertaking in science fiction, and a fantastic translation. The Three-Body Problem is a unique take on the classic alien “first contact” story told from a Chinese perspective. What would Earth look like if we knew extra-terrestrials were on their way to our planet?

Jerome Bixby is most known for his work as a TV writer, penning four episodes of the original Star Trek, an episode of the Twilight Zone, and co-wrote the story which Isaac Asimov would later adapt into ‘Fantastic Voyage’.

#SGGQA 28: Red Dead Redemption 2 And Why Is It Bad If Some Games Are Made For Men?

Gender politics in gaming is usually a topic I would avoid, but some of the online reactions I’ve witnessed to Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 are leaving me genuinely curious about the state of gaming and activism.
