About The Joy Factory (in Space)

Welcome to The Joy Factory (in Space)! What is this thing? Why does it exist? Why the heck am I doing it? Let me tell you!

2020 has been the year nightmares dream about, and finding joy in a world of Zoom meetings, pandemics, political turmoil, and just total exhaustion is no easy task. That's no less true for myself, an academic who runs a dorky Hugo finalist podcast and spends entirely too much time on social media, playing TTRPGs, and trying to write fiction.

That's why I went to spaceship school to become the captain of this little space cruiseship called the Joy Factory!

Every week, I'll put together a splattering of joyful material that gets me through the day. There'll be a weekly Joygasm collecting links to interesting geeky things I've found, glimpses into my TTRPG shenanigans and writing, imagined histories, book reviews and recommendations, and occasional other things such as podcasts, literary criticism, and deep dives into important and exciting academic work in the SF/F/H field. Plus, there'll be fun polls and silly discussions with me about all things geek.  Basically, the Joy Factory is a space cruise ship of wonders designed to bring joy. 

So climb on board and book your cabin now. We're setting off on an adventure into the unknown in search of smiles, love, goblins, robots, and splorglescoots (don't ask).
Goals
$28.54 of $250 per month
To celebrate hitting this first milestone, I'll devote an entire month to my infrequent thematic festival known as The Month of Joy.  In brief:  all the sf/f things that I love will be discussed all month long.

Oh, and I'll host a special Google+ Hangout to celebrate and ask 5 of you (at random) to join me to talk about our favorite sf/f things!
