Batman, Desperate, and Fake: Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl. There are only fake geek boys. Science fiction was invented by a womarn. Specifically a teenage girl.

Batman, Desperate, and Fake: Just remember. There is no such thing as a

 There are only fake geek boys.
 Science fiction was invented by a womarn.
 Specifically a teenage girl. You know,

 Isaac Asimov.
 simOnbaz
 yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818
 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you
 kinda get my point
 divinedorothy
 If you want to push it back even further
 Margaret Cavendish, the duchess of
 Newcastle (1623-1673) wrote The Blazing
 World in 1666, about a young woman wheo
 discovers a Utopian world that can only be
 accessed via the North Pole- oft credited as
 one of the first scifi novels
 Women have always been at the forefront
 of literature, the first novel (what we would
 consider a novel in modern terms) was written
 by a woman (Lady Muraskai's the Tale of Genji
 in the early 1000s) take your snide "Isaac
 Asimov reblogs and stick it
 even in terms of male scifi authors, asimov
 was predated by Jules Verne, HG Wells,
 George Orwell, you could have even cited Poe
 or Jonathan Swift has a case but Asimov?
 PbbBFFTTBBBTBTTBBTBTTT so desperate
 to discredit the idea of Mary Shelly as the
 mother of modern science fiction you didn't
 even do a frickin google search For Shame
 validcriticism
 And if you want to go back even further,
 the first named, identified author in history
 was Enheduanna of Akkad, a Sumerian high
 priestess.
 gunthatshootsennui
 Kinda funny, considering this Isaac Asimov
 quote on the subject:
 Mary Shelley was the first to make use of a
 new finding of science which she advanced
 further to a logical extreme, and it is that
 which makes Frankenstein the first true
 science fiction story
 Even Isaac Asimov ain't having none of your
 shit, not even posthumously

 I have literally been telling people this for over

 the first extended prose piece- ie a

 The first autobiography ever written in English
 is also attributed to a woman, The Book of

Beautiful, Black History Month, and Books: <p>Black history month black artists edition day 2: American poet, playwright, and novelist Langston Hughes.</p> <p>Langston Hughes was born in 1902 in Joplin, Missouri. As a child he grew up in several midwestern small towns. After his father left the family and divorced his mother, he spent most of his time being raised by his maternal grandmother while his mother searched around for work. Through oral tradition his grandmother instilled a sense of pride for his heritage and an appreciation for storytelling. In his autobiography he wrote: &ldquo;I was unhappy for a long time, and very lonesome, living with my grandmother. Then it was that books began to happen to me, and I began to believe in nothing but books and the wonderful world in books—where if people suffered, they suffered in beautiful language, not in monosyllables, as we did in Kansas.&rdquo;</p> <p>Langston developed a strong interest in poetry and writing; in grammar school he was elected class poet. He went to school for engineering but soon left due to racial prejudice and his strong attraction to Harlem culture and poetic pursuits. He floated through a few jobs, once even becoming the personal assistant of historian Carter G. Woodson. Eventually his poems called the eye of poet Vachel Lindsay, who helped Hughes publish his first official book of poems. In the mid-1920s, Hughes reenrolled in college, this time at the historically black Lincoln University. There he earned his bachelors degree and attended undergrad classes with future supreme court justice Thurgood Marshall.</p>

Books, Life, and Love: Tina Turner To Release Autobiography in 2018 @balleralert Tina Turner To Release Autobiography in 2018 – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three decades after the release of her first autobiography, TinaTurner will release her second memoir - “Tina Turner: My Love Story.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new book, which is set to be released in October of next year, will aide in celebrating the singer’s 60th anniversary in music. According to Entertainment Weekly, the Atria Books announced the new release on Monday, adding that it will focus on Turner’s life after Ike Turner, as she struggles to find love and survive a “life-threatening illness.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new novel is said to be a sequel to Turner’s previous memoir, “I, Tina,” which was turned into the popular film, “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” starring AngelaBassett. That book and film focused on the abusive relationship between her and her late husband, IkeTurner. Although the two were successful together, Ike’s history of violence against her led to their separation and subsequent divorce in 1978. Since then though, Turner went on to find solo success in music and film. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Turner, otherwise known as The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, is one of the world’s best selling artists of all time, deemed the most successful female Rock ‘n’ Roll artist. Now, with the release of her new book, Turner will be looking to match the success of “I, Tina” which was a worldwide best-seller.
