We have an announcement! Also, this week we discuss Six Wakes, Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, and Ms. Marvel, Volume 6: Civil War II.

Hi, friends! Today is the day we launch our very own Patreon project. 😀 You can read more about what we’ll be doing on Patreon at patreon.com/fangirlhappyhour. We hope you’ll support us if you like what we’re doing and have the means (if not, no worries! Our show won’t be going behind a paywall).
To celebrate our Patreon launch, we’re holding two (yes, two!) giveaways. The first is for a set of books: Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee, Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu & Sana Takeda, and Binti by Nnedi Okorafor.
The second giveaway is for a copy of The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi, which comes out March 21, 2017! This is a great entry point to Scalzi’s work, if you’ve never read him before. 😀
Thanks for listening to our show and helping us expand, friends! See you at patreon.com/fangirlhappyhour!
