Updatery and the Problems of a Black Nerd

Hey all! As you’ve probably noticed by now, I’m an awful blogger. It isn’t that I don’t love you; it is simply that I have so many words, for so many things, that none of those words ever seem to land here. Well, at least not on a regularly scheduled basis.

One of those “so many things” is pretty awesome. I’m doing book reviews on BlackNerdProblems.com.

As I’ve mentioned here, I’m really interested in exploring and popularizing more speculative fiction by people of color. I know so many fans (of all descriptions) who want to expand their reading options, and so many Black readers who are tired of being written out of the narrative. Taking matters into my own hands continues to be the best way to solve the problem: write the books I want to read and review the books I’m glad are there.

So that’s where most of my words will be landing for awhile. The site also features some of the funniest, most insightful Black nerds writing right now, doing reviews and commentary on everything from Dr. Who to Book of Korra. There’s a page for cosplayers and another for interviews and blah blah blah. Click the link. Go read. Then you’ll know why I’m excited.

I’ll still have things to say here now and then, things that won’t fit over there, so don’t unfollow me. Just follow me twice!

Hope the summer is treating you right. My fall is shaping up to be intense, but more on that later. Later!
