Best-selling authors Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell team up on The Tangled Lands (Saga), a rich and haunting novel that explores a world where magic is forbidden. Each of the book’s four interconnected tales is devastating in its own way, because the authors don’t let anyone get away clean.
Robots vs. Fairies (Saga) is the creature feature you didn’t know you wanted. The anthology, edited by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, alternates between stories about robots and stories about fairies, but often the tales fall somewhere in between. Which being will become Earth’s future overlords: fairies or robots? That is the question contributors — including Ken Liu, John Scalzi and Delilah S. Dawson — are trying to resolve in this literary throwdown.
2017, phew. Hurricanes and wildfires. Nuclear threats and Nazis. Weinstein and O’Reilly and Moore and Lauer and Franken and Rose and C.K. and Spacey and ...Las Vegas and — all the other news alerts that you decided it might be okay to let blur into one bad-news corner in your brain. Because the other day you found yourself nodding along as the Facebook friend you used to scroll past explained — you know what all of this means? The end of the world is coming. What? No. Just the end of the year.
@irvingjlang@joelrama 2/2 It didn't contend with how gender affected her life at all, it was just the author's own lazy writing on a female character. Besides, I didn't get the vibe that Jazz wanted to be in the field anyway. She wanted to be rich.
@irvingjlang@joelrama I would maybe buy that if the book was a musing on a woman trying to be in aerospace or tech and was barred because of her gender. But that was not what happened in this book at all. 1/2
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
