Can't believe virologists already invented the term "the Hoskins effect" for when your immune system is unwilling to accept the original movie Mario being replaced by a new guy

Sad to have missed #BiVisibilityDay yesterday, the one day a year in which bisexuals can be perceived without the aid of tricolour goggles, but here is an instance of me gamely making the attempt in the beforetimes…
On this #BiVisibilityDay I'm sharing The Bisexual Manifesto of 1990, and reminding you bisexuality is defined as "attraction to two or more genders". "We are angered by those who refuse to accept our existence; our issues; our contributions; our alliances; our voice." 💖💜4Xt

95% of people in ICU in BC today are not fully vaccinated. Abt 79% of BC 12+ ARE fully vaccinated, so 95% of the ICU cases are coming from just 20ish% of the population. Please get vaccinated.…

I've gone back to my #blaseball Internet Series postcards and done some remixes I stopped making them in Season 20 because making an Underbracket and an Overbracket version felt like a lot, but I'd like to finish the Expansion Era over Siesta Here's Season 1-4

Me laying elaborate nine book background plots: Haha fuck yeah!!! Yes!! Me having to finally communicate all this to the reader: Well this fucking sucks. What the fuck.

A lovely review from @tithenai: A Monk And A Robot Meet In A Forest ... And Talk Philosophy In This New Novel…
Retweeted by Amal El-Mohtar
I just finished @tithenai & @maxgladstone's This Is How You Lose the Time War, and all I can say is: Wow... 😿 It's a beautifully written love story, weaving two warring assassins', heart-achingly human despite their creation, letters through time and possibilities. Read it!�N3

Review: "Let me tell you I was bitterly disappointed to learn that this book is, in fact, an instructional guide to the profitable husbandry of ducks as a craft. There is not one sliver of insight about holding ducks accountable for their crimes against humanity, Earth or God."

I'm not sure that Google itself is the issue--though noting that students now are *as old as Google* sure is a trip & a half--but a device thing? How many students are doing all their content-creation on phones & tablets, etc
I ran into this disconnect with a student for the first time recently & it blew my mind. This is an excellent read exploring a fundamental difference in approach to some really basic pedagogy.…
Amal, as always, has quite a way with words. Also, she's right about NO GODS.…

Look, if neither this nor my incredibly comprehensible pitch of “Riot Baby by way of Succubus Blues” is enough to sell you on No Gods, No Monsters, I don’t know what to tell you…
Retweeted by Amal El-Mohtar
fyi I mean this as a term of art to aspire to
Also--in the pages of the paper of record I have to, like, make sense & be coherent, but here on twitter dot com let me say that reading NO GODS, NO MONSTERS feels like listening to a sonata that is eating you
(I will not be writing this fanfic at this time.)
Like, if you SQUINT (👁️) you could make a very persuasive case for THE BODY SCOUT being the plot that Uncle Plasma & Liquid Friend were investigating
I don't really know whether I'm recommending that #Blaseball fans read THE BODY SCOUT or just @thegameband read THE BODY SCOUT or, frankly, that @TheLincoln play Blaseball, but some combination of the three probably.
Some things to add: there was no way to bring this up without hijacking the whole & going steeply over wordcount, but THE BODY SCOUT is so incredibly Blaseball I couldn't even believe it. THERE IS A (minor) CHARACTER CALLED COIN.
I can’t put it much better than the incomparable @tithenai did in her incredible review today for @nytimes: “THE BODY SCOUT blends noir, cyberpunk and sports into something at once timeless and original…sad and funny, surreal and intelligent.”…

New column up at @nytimesbooks today (in print Oct. 10), covering THE BODY SCOUT by Lincoln Michel, LIGHT FROM UNCOMMON STARS by Ryka Aoki, & NO GODS, NO MONSTERS by Cadwell Turnbull. Enjoy!…
And that's a wrap for EPISTOLARY FICTION! Thank you to @franekwuyasi @lindsayzv @WayneNgWrites and @tithenai for such a fascinating, thoughtful discussion. Remember! You can get the books from today's panel at our official festival booksellers:… #WOTS2021

That was such a beautiful panel! Huge thanks to @torontoWOTS for organizing it, & to @lindsayzv @WayneNgWrites & @franekwuyasi for being such thoughtful delights as panelists! ICYMI, here's a lovely livetweet of it.…
My experience three provinces over was almost identical to this with minor aesthetic differences. No queue; everything well spaced out & ventilated; an easy process of marking a paper ballot. My polling station was very nearby, so door to door my voting took, at most, 15 minutes.…
Relatedly, this seems like an auspicious thing to have turn up on my timeline:…
Hey friends, in just under an hour (2PM EST) I'll be joining @WayneNgWrites @lindsayzv @franekwuyasi in a panel about epistolary fiction under the kind auspices of @torontoWOTS! It's free & you can still register!…
Mark your calendars! This looks *gorgeous* & I love everything Cooney writes, you all know that, if you didn't know that you must know it down to your bones now, I demand it…
(hair flower by Betsie Withey, whose stuff I adore & wear all the time whenever I must be perceived… )
Good morning, I voted, I don't have a sticker but I do have statements in my fashion
In case you need an hour respite from #Elxn44 stress, join me and @WayneNgWrites, @tithenai, and @franekwuyasi at today’s @torontoWOTS virtual panel on letter writing and fiction! 2-3pm ET! #WOTS2021 #LettersToAmelia #WordOnTheStreet

Also I am emotionally unprepared to acknowledge the span of time indicated in that tweet & will simply proceed as if it had not been specified
somewhere there exists a kinder more brilliant universe where THE MIDDLEMAN got 5 seasons & a feature film…
We get to announce it! ⁦@WriteTeachPlay⁩ & I will be Guests of Honor at WindyCon (Author Guest of Honor & Poet Guest of Honor respectively). This is particularly moving to me because the last time I went to this con, I went with my mentor Gene Wolfe.…

Shit. This is stressful news for authors with books coming out over the next few months.😨Bottom line: if there's a book you want this fall, pre-order it…N

stayed up til 2AM to finish the book, I have finished the book, the book is not finished with me
Fancy book day! This wonderful edition of This Is How You Lose the Time War by @tithenai and @maxgladstone Looking forward to my second reading!
Retweeted by Amal El-Mohtar
ANYWAY I am losing coherence & hungry for book again, it's so harrowingly beautiful, more later no doubt
trufacts, while reading this I am sometimes surfacing for air & looking at instagram & seeing clips from Montero & lowkey dissolving into tears at how much joyful tenderness there is in young men pushing their bodies together & how long how much has been denied.
