Man Booker Prize 2018 To Anna Burns’s ‘Milkman’

“The experimental novel, Burns’s third, is narrated by an unnamed 18-year-old girl, known as ‘middle sister’, who is being pursued by a much older paramilitary figure, the milkman,” during Northern Ireland’s Troubles.

Man Booker Prize 2018 Shortlist Includes Youngest Finalist Ever But Not Winner Of ‘Golden Booker’

Perhaps the two most notable names on the longlist, Michael Ondaatje (who won the 50th anniversary ‘Golden Man Booker’ earlier this year for The English Patient) for Warlight and Nick Drnaso for Sabrina (the first graphic novel ever to be considered for the award), did not make the final cut. Among those who did are Esi Edugyan for Washington Black, Robin Robertson for The Long Take (written largely in verse), and, for Everything Under, 27-year-old Daisy Johnson, the youngest writer ever to make...

Chloe Bennet Won't Wear Setting Spray on Set: "Women Can Be Messed Up"

Much like Daisy Johnson, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. character she's played for the past five years, Chloe Bennet speaks in a deep, powerful voice. Her cadence is unapologetically slow - she's going to talk for as long as she needs to, and you're going to listen. Such casual, mature confidence is probably what makes people think the actress is older than her 26 years. That and the fact that she boasts a wildly impressive résumé that includes her stint on S.H.I.E.L.D., some time on Nashville, an...

Animated ‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’ Introduces a Completely Diverse Superhero Team

It’s taken them a long time, but Marvel is finally bringing a fully diverse superhero team to the screen. And though it’s not the big screen, it’s still pretty darn cool.

Live-Action ‘Teen Titans’ Series Casts Anna Diop as Starfire: Why This Color-Blind Casting Is Great News

The live-action Teen Titans series, currently named Titans, is starting to get off the ground, with a newly cast Starfire joining the team after Australian newcomer Teagan Croft was cast as Raven. With the news that Anna Diop, a relatively unknown actress from 24: Legacy, was cast as Starfire in the live-action Teen Titans series to premiere on Warner Bros.’ new digital service, there were the usual racist rumblings of “she looks nothing like the comic book character.” First, ahem, Starfire is ...

‘Inhumans’ Character Teasers Make Medusa’s Hair Look Slightly More Human

Marvel’s Inhumans continues barrelling down poorly-placed rails on its way to being a trainwreck, but you can’t blame Marvel for trying to salvage the remains before the show debuts. As the promotional rollout continues before Inhumans makes its IMAX run and ABC premiere in September, Marvel wants you to know the characters as more than just a pair of bad wigs and discount Syfy costumes. The new teaser melodramatically introduces the Royal Family and some other core characters, along with some ...

22 Funko Pop! Vinyl T-Shirts to Give You More Things to Collect!

In the world of geekdom, there are all types of collectors. I’m a comic book collector myself, I know rare.

15 Stellar Short Stories You Can Read Online This Month

In April, America celebrates National Poetry Month; from June to August, occupy long summer days. Nestled nicely between, there’s another seasonal celebration of literature: National Short Story Month. Short stories ― works of fiction that are smaller than a breadbox, but bigger than a double haiku ― are too often overlooked by book buyers and those responsible for literary awards. But the entire month of May is dedicated to the form, so it’s as good a time as any to dip into the huge body of...

Even An ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Star Says Marvel Studios Doesn’t Care About the Show

Even though the television series Agents of SHIELD takes place in the Marvel cinematic universe, there has still be a significant disconnect between the Marvel Studios show on ABC and their feature films. The biggest piece of evidence pointing to a lack of cooperation between the two Marvel entities is the fact that Agents of SHIELD probably won’t cross over with the Inhumans movie (which has been pulled from Marvel’s schedule, but will still get made eventually), even though they share an enti...
