The dream of every James Bond fan/car enthusiast is about to come true, assuming you have a hefty bank account to bring those 007 fantasies into the real world.
At WorldCon 76 in San Jose, N.K. Jemisin made history, winning her third consecutive Hugo Award for The Stone Sky, the third book in The Broken Earth trilogy. She is the first person to win three Best Novel Hugo awards in a row, and the first to win top honors for every book in a series. (If you haven’t jumped in to this game-changing epic fantasy yet, you can preorder the boxed set, due out in October).
Below, we present the text of Jemisin’s historic speech, provided to us via her publisher, Orbit Books.
This has been a hard year, hasn’t it? A hard few years. A hard century. For some of us, things have always been hard. I wrote the Broken Earth trilogy to speak to that struggle, and what it takes just to live, let alone thrive, in a world that seems determined to break you. A world of people who constantly question your competence, your relevance, your very existence.
I get a lot of questions about where the themes of the Broken Earth trilogy come from. I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m drawing on the human history of structural oppression, as well as my feelings about this moment in American history. What may be less obvious, though, is how much of the story derives from my feelings about science fiction and fantasy. Then again, SFF is a microcosm of the wider world, in no way rarefied from the world’s pettiness or prejudice.
But another thing I tried to touch on in the Broken Earth is that life in a hard world is never just the struggle. Life is family, blood and found. Life is those allies who prove themselves worthy by actions and not just talk. Life means celebrating every victory, no matter how small.
So as I stand here before you, beneath these lights, I want you to remember that 2018 is also a good year. This is a year in which records have been set. A year in which even the most privilege-blindered of us has been forced to acknowledge that the world is broken and needs fixing—and that’s a good thing! Acknowledging the problem is the first step toward fixing it. I look to science fiction and fantasy as the aspirational drive of the Zeitgeist: we creators are the engineers of possibility. And as this genre finally, however grudgingly, acknowledges that the dreams of the marginalized matter and that all of us have a future, so will go the world. (Soon, I hope.)
And yes, there will be naysayers. I know that I am here on this stage, accepting this award, for pretty much the same reason as every previous Best Novel winner: because I worked my ass off. I have poured my pain onto paper when I could not afford therapy. I have studied works of literature that range widely and dig deeply, to learn what I could and refine my voice. I have written a Million Words of Crap and probably a Million More of Meh.
But beyond that, I have smiled and nodded while well-meaning magazine editors advised me to tone down my allegories and anger. (I didn’t.) I have gritted my teeth while an established professional writer went on a ten-minute tirade at me—as a proxy for basically all black people—for mentioning underrepresentation in the sciences. I have kept writing even though my first novel, The Killing Moon, was initially rejected on the assumption that only black people would ever possibly want to read the work of a black writer. I have raised my voice to talk back over fellow panelists who tried to talk over me about my own damn life. I have fought myself, and the little voice inside me that constantly, still, whispers that I should just keep my head down and shut up and let the real writers talk.
But this is the year in which I get to smile at all of those naysayers—every single mediocre insecure wannabe who fixes their mouth to suggest that I do not belong on this stage, that people like me cannot possibly have earned such an honor, that when they win it it’s meritocracy but when we win it it’s “identity politics” — I get to smile at those people, and lift a massive, shining, rocket-shaped middle finger in their direction.
How many of y’all saw Black Panther? Probably my favorite part of it is actually Kendrick Lamar’s theme song, “All the Stars.” The chorus of it is “This may be the night that my dreams might let me know: all the stars are closer.” Let 2018 be the year that the stars came closer for all of us. The stars are ours. Thank you.
Here's what the Fantastic Four would have looked like in Tim Miller's version of Deadpool 2 @ Syfy Wire
It seems like Tim Miller's vision for Deadpool 2 was going to be very different from the one we got from David Leitch back in May.
Almost 14 years since the premiere of the time-bending, mind-boggling suspense TV phenomenon Lost premiered and over a decade since Penny (Sonya Walger) and Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) starred in one of the greatest episodes of sci-fi TV ever made ("The Constant"), the couple at the heart of one of the more moving mode
The winners of the 2018 Hugo Awards are here. It might have been the first year for Worldcon’s new rules, designed to curb voting slates that haunted previous years, but it didn’t change the actual results. That’s because, for the third year in a row, women dominated the awards—including another Best Novel win for…
The final chapter in Bruce Wayne's transformation into Batman is set to play out in the fifth and final season of Gotham. We still don't know when that will begin — Fox is holding the show's return until midseason of the 2018-19 TV campaign — but with the arrival of the Season 4 Blu-ray and DVD on August 21 we can look back at how the emotionally conflicted young billionaire (played by David Mazouz) accelerated his rendezvous with DC Comics destiny.
We love a lesbian vampire. And famed vampiress Countess Elizabeth Bathory, as played by Delphine Seyrig in 1971’s Daughters of Darkness, is one of the best. Eternally poised and wielding her smoky, somnolent voice like a velvet-covered razor blade, she’s determined to tempt newlywed Valerie (Danielle Ouimet) away from her husband Stefan (John Karlen) after the trio—plus Elizabeth’s “secretary,” a lissome Ilona (Andrea Rau)—all end up at the same deserted seaside resort.

Tonight brings an end to the era for the beloved Sharknado franchise.
In This Episode of Fear the Walking Dead...
N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy is about the end of history. At the 2018 Hugo Awards, presented last night at WorldCon 76 in San Jose, California, she made history.
Jemisin, who in 2016 became the first black woman to win the Hugo Award for Best Novel, took home the honor for an unprecedented third consecutive year for The Stone Sky, the final book in the saga of the Broken Earth. Not only is this the Hugos’ first Best Novel three-peat, it’s the first time an author has won top honors for every book in a trilogy.
“I am on this stage accepting this award for pretty much the same reason as every previous Hugo winner,” Jemisin said. “Because I worked my ass off.”
The evening’s other writing categories changed things up a bit, with trophies for Best Novella and Best Short Story going to first-time winners Martha Wells and Rebecca Roanhorse, respectively (both works were also winners at the Nebula Awards earlier this year).
Another first: Nnedi Okorafor took home the inaugural World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) Award for Best Young Adult Book for Akata Warrior. Another first, sort of: Lois McMaster Bujold became the first person to win Best Series twice, for World of the Five Gods (she won last year for the Vorkosigan Saga).

All I remember about licensed board games as a kid was that they were usually cheap, terrible cash-grabs. Things are much better for the youth of today.
Dungeons & Dragons is collaborative storytelling. And, well, so is making a television show.
You know it's a good weekend for movies when you're almost spoiled for choice over what to go and see. Confession: I only just got around to watching Incredibles 2 yesterday, and I thiiiink I like it even more than the first one? Jack-Jack remains the best of everyone.

The summer is getting a bit long in the tooth. You’re starting to long for the cooler days of the autumn. You’ve done your notebook and pen shopping and you have all your back to school clothes in the closet. They’re sitting there, mocking you. “Wear me! You know you want to,” says the wool sweater and the shiny new leather jacket. “I can’t!! I’ll melt,” you say, as you sit in a tank top and shorts in front of your television with a giant ice pack on your back. If you’d like to drown out the voices of your pretty new duds, we can help you out.
Will the heat outside never end? You can cook an egg on the sidewalk right now. When you’re inside, you just keep getting upsetting news updates on your phone. Maybe Mom and Dad want you to start that reading list the school just sent out, or your boss thinks you should come in this weekend. All you want to do is sit on the couch, play games and watch movies. That’s your inner rebel talking, and you should definitely listen to it. It really just wants the best for you. If that best includes some ordering your meal in and sitting in front of a screen, we’ve got some good news!

Infinity War: VFX reel from RISE goes behind the making of the movie's post-credits sequence @ Syfy Wire
Over the last two weeks or so, a number of VFX houses have been releasing reels that showcase their CGI work on Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel Studios/Disney probably gave the greenlight to all of these companies after the movie's Blu-Ray became available on August 14.

Here's why Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi had to knowingly spoil Season 7 for himself @ Syfy Wire
There's nothing worse than getting into a popular TV show, investing a good portion of your time, and then having a major plot point spoiled. Now imagine spoiling something for yourself on purpose.

Is it just me, or do Saturdays feel a little lackluster after the badass double-feature of Wynonna Earp and Killjoys on Friday nights? Yours truly stays way up past her bedtime to livetweet both shows for FANGRRLS, but there's nothing else I'd rather neglect sleep for.

The superheroes of Marvel's Champions series will soon deal with a foe teens across the world deal with every day. Gun violence in schools has been at the forefront of the minds of many this year, so it makes sense that comic book teens would deal with the issue as well.
Yuko "Chocoblanka" Momochi is one of the best-known women in the fighting game community. She has competed in many local and regional events in Japan, as well as some international events such as CEO and EVO.

Welcome to another episode of Wynonna Earp: The Official Podcast! After the events of last week's cliffhanger, we were more than ready to find out what awaited the Earp brood in "Jolene," so saddle up.
Most of the classic animated films that ended up making Walt Disney a household name in nearly every corner of the globe were crafted long before the advent of computer-generated animation.
TGIF. More specifically, TGINWEAKD, which expands to "Thank God It's New Wynonna Earp and Killjoys Day!" We've waited all week for this, and it's finally here. I can't think of a better way to close out things.
Other than links, of course.
As hyper-realistic as modern video game graphics look, the blocky, pixelated aesthetic of the 16-bit era still has a certain charm. And as animator John Stratman demonstrates with his video game de-make of Avengers: Infinity War, all those superheroes working together would have made for a fantastic side-scrolling…

In the years following the release of Rosemary’s Baby, author Ira Levin expressed dismay that audiences had misinterpreted the meaning of his book. In his mind, the driving theme behind the story was his apparent atheism, urging readers to question belief systems. Throughout the book and in parts of the film that resulted from it, various characters criticize religion, only for all of them to be members of a satanic cult by the end.
The days of posting and reading user reviews on Netflix are now firmly in the past. That’s right: As of Friday, the streaming giant has removed all customer reviews of TV shows, movies, and other programming from its website.

Well before Avengers: Infinity War came out and changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, Mark Ruffalo did his level best to spoil the movie for everyone while Don Cheadle watched.
Jason Statham specializes in action movies, especially crime thrillers where he plays some variation on a special forces agent who doesn’t talk a lot but can fold you in half with a punch. But every once in a while, he steps out of that familiar zone and lets some weirdness infiltrate his tough-guy typecasting. And we…
You guys remember that really old video game? Watch as Infinity War gets the 16-bit retro treatment @ Syfy Wire
"Do you guys remember that really old video game?" Imagine if Avengers: Infinity War had come out in the late 1980s or early '90s. Now imagine if it had gotten a tie-in video game from Activision, Capcom, Nintendo, Sega, or Capcom. Got that in your head?
You'll want to lock your door for this new clip from the boarding-school thriller Down a Dark Hall @ Syfy Wire
Summit Entertainment has dropped a new clip from its horror movie Down a Dark Hall, which becomes available on digital platforms and in certain theaters today.
Science and magic are indistinguishable at a certain level of complexity. So of course we’re reporting on a time-travel story and a coming-of-age wizard tale at the same time. They’re basically the same anyway. Both properties are getting adaptations — though the first is far better known than the second.
Dream Casting is an imaginative look at the casting process of potential Hollywood projects based on comics and other media. This isn't just about what is being made; this is about what should be made, and who we think should be the stars.
Don Cheadle Still Can't Believe Mark Ruffalo Legitimately Spoiled Avengers: Infinity War in 2017 @ io9

Are movies that take place entirely on computer screens replacing found footage films as the new go-to format for the horror genre — and perhaps beyond?
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate comes to the Switch on the 28th. Yesterday, Paul and I streamed the demo and faced off against a massive Valstrax.

Supergirl has been around for quite some time — about 60 years, in fact! In that time, she’s died and been written out of continuity almost more times than you could count, but probably about as many times as any other DC character.

Emmy Contender: The Handmaid's Tale's sets speak further to Gilead's religious hypocrisy, are inspired by Nazi Germany @ Syfy Wire
