Reminder: If you're interested by the intersection of science fiction and pop culture, you should follow my Medium.com collection Sci-Fi Strange. Recent essays there have explored surprise dystopias in literature, the passing of Lucius Shepard, Jim Jarmusch's film Only Lovers Left Alive, and why Hollywood will likely never create a great Cthulhu movie.
If you write on Medium, consider submitting your non-fiction essays and articles to my collection. If you're not familiar with Medium, check out this post. Slate's Matthew Yglesias also offers a great overview of the social media platform, calling it the "best writing tool around."
