Kickstarter, LOTR Marathon, and the Marys

* My friend Matthew Sanborn Smith (of the Beware the Hairy Mango podcast) has launched a new Kickstarter for his work-in-progress, Hive Five, which is a "weird and funny science fiction novel about five members of a hive mind who are not very good at being a hive mind." Matt's fiction has been published at, Nature, and Chizine, among other places, and this new work sounds very promising. Please check out his Kickstarter!

* Are you in or near Boston? Check out this Lord of the Rings Movie Marathon, complete with Q&A and discussion with my fellow Mythgardian, Dr. Corey Olsen.

* Last, here's a new book recommendation: Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley by Charlotte Gordon (2015). My review is here.
