Netfux: Hot and Messy (QR 060)

May 22, 2023

Greetings, stranger! Have you heard tell of this new literary hero? This publishing world pugilist? His very words conjure riches. Bigolas Dickolas Wolfwood is his name.

Would you like to hear more? Well then, come. Sit! Warm yourself by the fire and listen for a spell. It’s a tale as old as time. A story of anime and sapphic science fiction and…the internet!

Official Recommendations

From Kris: Queen Charlotte (Netflix)

This week, Kris recommends Queen Charlotte, the prequel to creator Shonda Rimes’ Bridgerton. The main plot revolves around Queen Charlotte’s rise to power from a young age, and while that “would be interesting enough,” according to Kris, the real gem of the piece is the relationship between the royalty’s secretaries, Brimsley and Reynolds. You know Kris doesn’t recommend anything without chemistry, and these two have it.

From Tara: How to Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

Some of us are called. Others are chosen. In Tara’s case, she was reminded this week, due to the Bigolas Dickolas Wolfwood of it all, that one of her favourite books of all time still exists. How to Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone is a short novel told in the correspondence of two agents on opposing sides of a millenia-spanning Time War. Through these letters, they fall in love and have to decide if their love means more to them than the cause they’ve dedicated their existence to.
