Zombillenium Volume 4: Royal Witchcraft by Arthur de Pins (graphic novel review).

The alien protomolecule has risen from Venus like ‘some titanic sea creature’ and travelled to the outer planets’ zone to form a Ring a thousand kilometres wide. A flotilla of science and military ships […]

Birding Without Borders by Noah Strycker (book review).

Here’s a book about a hobby taken to an extreme.
