Ms. Marvel Vol 1: No Normal, by G. Willow Wilson et al

To a happier part of the 2015 Hugo discussion. I really enjoyed this graphic story about a teenage Pakistani-American girl in New Jersey who acquires super powers. It deftly combined a number of familiar tropes, from Buffy and urban fantasy on the one hand and the increasing literature about being a non-white kid in a new and largely white country on the other, and was also very entertaining. In this category at least, I may have a tough choice.

    I really haven’t. I think the only book of hers I’ve read is WIZARD OF THE PIGEONS and that was easily 25 years ago. 🙂

    I have to say I’m boggled by the idea that Elizabethan-era fantasy rarely deals with the Reformation. Not that I doubt you, but good grief, it’s a huge part of what daily politics of that time period is *about*. o.O
