Today marks the end of August; it also marks the beginning of DragonCon, so if you're in the Atlanta area I hope you enjoy a great weekend of killer cosplay, panels, guests, and other fun! Seriously, though, the cosplay is EPIC.

Other than that, if you're reading this live then you're probably distracting yourself from an all-new episode of Wynonna Earp. Stop that! Turn on tonight's ep. You're gonna want to see this one, as well as a new episode of Killjoys afterwards.

- 10 must-see films about and directed by women at TIFF 2018. (NOW Toronto)
- The consolation of genre: on reading romance novels. (LA Review of Books)
- On Huntress and DC’s problem with whitewashing. (BookRiot)
- The failed Slender Man movie was the final nail in the coffin of an already dying fandom. (The Verge)
