#coupdecoeur pour ce texte #sf où le niveau de l’eau a monté et a forcé les humain.e.s à vivre sur des continents de déchets. Étonnement drôle et affreusement pertinent 🥰@TorDotComPubb@catvalenteeP

What my friend wrote about @catvalente's The Habitation of the Blessed, "I felt enlightened and full of wonder the whole time I was reading it" has me convinced I need to read it as well.

I just started "Space Opera" by @catvalente -- good gracious the narrative voice is HILARIOUS. It has the snappy pace and wit that is very reminiscent of writers like Pratchett and Douglas Adams. I was trying to pull a quote--but the entire thing is just grin inducing.

@catvalente Wow. Read it one sitting and not sure I remembered to breathe. "The Difference Between Love and Time" is brilliant.

And this one is the reason my 3 year old sauntered up to me the other day, took a bite of apple, & casually told me the dwarf planets are Ceres, Makemake, Haumea, Eris, & Pluto Listen to this astronomy-meets-Hamilton jam & you’ll never forget them either youtu.be/ws3kWuMi0Y8
Most kids’ songs are not super great to listen to 1000 times but I got two for my parentally-inclined folks This sea shanty genuinely slaps & I didn’t even know this was the G/C rule! I thought it was just arbitrary English gaslighting us as usual… youtu.be/f_VzZ3BUSRI
Looking for grilling tips, Twitter! Pretty much a newbie to outdoor grills, very much not to cooking in general. What’s your best advice?
You guys need to read these stories. What a lineup! Stunning work. I had a bit of an episode reading ⁦@catvalente⁩ ‘s story and had to yell at her about it. Someone in Time: Tales of Time-Crossed Romance amazon.com/dp/1786185091/… #Amazon

Toddlers just constantly write checks they don’t want cashed. See: mine, being an absolute penguin flop of a person this morning. Sees the garbage truck pull up. “I wanna get in the garbage truck! I wanna go in there!” Keep it up, penguin. Dreams can come true.
Just finished Osmo Unknown and the Eightpenny Woods by @catvalente and it's one of those rare books that reminds me of The Neverending Story in a good way (the book, not the movie!). Which says a lot considering that TNS shaped a large part of my childhood.

Dear @Blizzard_Ent, I had not heard of this book before now but I will be buying a copy because Cat Valente is part of it. If you want to approach her for more work I would happily buy that too, please and thank you. twitter.com/catvalente/sta…

So. The "Romancing Sci-Fi & Fantasy" panel wrapped. Instead of celebrating, I'm here--holding grief & frustration--over what happens when language is misused (regardless of intent).

This is basically why @catvalente and @kellybarnhill are two of my favourite authors of the MG novel right now. twitter.com/SketchesbyBoze…

I guess I can finally announce…I did a Diablo story! I think even non-fans should be pleased, no need to have deep IP background for this one, it very much stands independently. wowhead.com/news/upcoming-… twitter.com/kalcheus/statu…
Finally biting into @catvalente 's Comfort Me With Apples. No spoilers, now...

I really am very proud of this book. I poured my whole utterly-broken-yet-full-of-wonder-at-the-actual-reality-of-a-child pandemic-heart into it. I’d love you all to read it, if you’d consider giving it a go. #OsmoUnknownandtheEightpennyWoods twitter.com/AFeldstone/sta…
And so I remember: the Stone, stories, Mr. D... and buttons. Lots and lots of buttons.

Today I read (well, was consumed by) Osmo Unknown and the Eightpenny Woods. It broke my heart in the way I hoped it would, while still surprising me at the same time.

As you read through this important thread, ask yourself how this differs in any material way from Trump, his rise, his followers, his easy ride with the media, his assumptions about his impunity & godhood. He just had a better cover story. twitter.com/Tweetermeyer/s…

Started reading the new @catvalente book OSMO UNKNOWN AND THE EIGHTPENNY WOODS during my lunch break today, and that intro was like wrapping myself in a warm, soft blanket made of melodious words and phrases during a cool spring rain while homemade cookies bake in the oven.

This week’s episode: The beginning of our 2022 Hugo coverage! We discuss the six nominated novellas. I’ve made no secret that The Past is Red by @catvalente was my favorite book of 2021. This is a great group of nominees, though, and there’s lots of love for the others here. twitter.com/_narrated/stat…

Hello everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been absent, I’m overwhelmed with work…& everything else…& the world being on fire…plus my toddler is obsessing on Dora so all I feel like I have to add to every news story is incoherent primal screaming SWIPER NO SWIPING YOU SWIPEHAPPY FUCKFOXES
@catvalente I just read the acknowledgments of Osmo Unknown and I am Not Okay I’m really happy to be able to read your words.

Nice to see @catvalente’s newest book in @BookshopSC’s Summer Reading ‘Newsletter’. Time to add it to the list.

Oh, MCU. Oh, y’all. Did you HAVE to… *sigh* *rubs face* Fine. Time to dig out @catvalente’s The Refrigerator Monologues for another reread, with special love for “The Ballad of Blue Bayou” this time.

We’re playing outside in the back garden & Bastian is dancing with his shadow. Then he dropped to one knee and put on a big deep low booming “magical” voice to say: BASTIAN CAN YOU COME OVER TO MEEEE I WILL GIVE YOU A PEANUT BUTTER SAAAANDWICH …the Goth Messiah strikes again.

With #EUROVISION bringing up everyone's love for @catvalente's SPACE OPERA, perhaps it's a good time to put it out there that I'd love to commission an artist to make a print featuring Flus the knife-a-saurus (for a gift)! @catvalente, @veryheathmiller, could you please help RT?

I just got read to absolute FILTH by a three year old. Me: “Bastian, you look great today! You just woke up like that! You didn’t even have to try!” Bastian: *cool as a cucumber deadpan tone, not even looking up whilst playing with his toy space shuttle* “But you do.”
I don’t fully know how to explain that this is why I wrote Space Opera Not because it’s cute Because #Eurovision is joy from the heart of darkness, shine from out the shadows, singing beauty in the face of fear & hate & hopelessness—& beauty winning. It is the most human thing

@katie_blaze @catvalente I legit still get goosebumps when I think of the climax of Space Opera. It's one of those books that I read on Kindle and then ABSOLUTELY HAD to get the hardback
Retweeted by Catherynne M. Valente
@catvalente When things feel dark and hopeless, Space Opera gives me hope. Thank you for that. When the bad people come, we might still sing them down.

Trivia fact: Chapter 13 was the absolute last thing added to Space Opera at the last minute in the last edit. Respect the final editing pass. It MATTERS. twitter.com/IsidoresDragon…
