#MPaxDimension Report: Sorrow and What to Look forward to in 2023 #scifi

With great sorrow, I had to say goodbye to Sarge right before the holiday. His pain was short-lived, and he went with love and a smile. He lived a happy life with us. Because he came to us as a stray in desperate need, he’s extra special. I’ll miss talking to him (he always answered back and had different meows, so you could have a whole conversation) and his hugs. He was so sweet and gentle and had a million expressions. Despite the world being so cruel to him, he was always smiling and always happy (except when we didn’t get him a snack fast enough). I’ll miss him in a million different ways. Love you, Sargie Boy!

 

In author news, I played around with the Ai artist some and added new artwork to the Backworlds and Rifters series pages.

I’m working on turning Worlds on Edge, Backworlds Book 5 into an audiobook. I intend to finish the Backworlds series in audio in 2023. I’ll also be getting more titles back into print.

I finished the first round of edits in The Afterworlds and have started the second read-through. If life doesn’t get in my way too much, I plan to release The Afterworlds in 2023. Then it will be on to finishing the Rifters series!

Wishing you the best in 2023!

#SciFi Worth Streaming: Paper Girls #MovieReview

 

Although the girls are from 1988, the comparison to Stranger Things stops there. Based on a comic series that was published before Stranger Things, Paper Girls begins on November 1, 1988. These are four tween girls who deliver newspapers. The morning after Halloween is a bit rough, so they band together for safety. They are then thrown into the future. Part of it is really scary. Part of it seems pretty normal.

The four girls don’t know each other and are forced into a friendship as the series moves on. They do meet their older selves to see how their lives turned out. Most of them are unhappy with what they discover.

Hmm, my 12-year-old self wanted to either train horses or be a writer. I got the writer thing going. So, maybe she’d be happy with me.

There’s time travel and a secret war and a strange phenomenon that sucks things into the future.  I heard it wasn’t renewed for a second season, but this series is definitely worth watching. I’ll go find the comics to find out what happens.

Here’s the trailer:
