Space! Dragons! Space dragons (that’s a thing)! Welcome to the sci-fi and fantasy corner of Book Riot, where we discuss the best fantasy book series (and best fantasy books that standalone–yes, those do exist), military sci-fi, science fiction books for kids, cozy sci-fi (also a thing!), and more. Pack your lembas bread and let’s get reading.
Episode 11Karina and Matthew talk about identifying a publisher by its "voice", focusing on the specific in order to connect with the universal, and they highlight some imprints and independent publishers who are centering diversity in different ways.
Episode 40Jess and Trisha celebrate some important progress at the RITAs, talk through romance authors writing outside their own experience, and what romance series they’d like to see get the fanfic treatment.
