  • There’s a day to celebrate just about everything, and that includes alien abductions! March 20 is Extraterrestrial Abductions Day, and it’s for everyone who is actually enthusiast about the prospect of meeting some little green men. It might be hard to understand why, though. Most depictions of aliens in pop culture are less than charming: the psychotic killers in Mars Attacks, the faceless insectoids in…well, pretty much all of science fiction, even the pleasant but deeply strange aliens encountered on the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Truly friendly, funny, charming extraterrestrials are few and far between when it comes to alien portrayals, but that doesn’t mean that there are none to be found. We’d be happy to have these little green (and not so green) men abduct us this month!

  • Prophecy and fortune telling may seem like a good idea - a way to know what’s coming up, to be able to plan, to prepare, to make sure that the right decision is made. However, with few exceptions, prophecies are either completely off-base… or so difficult to interpret that those trying to just end up making things worse (or even fulfilling the prophecy because they were trying to avoid it). One of the most famous prophetic lines, of course, is ‘beware the Ides of March’. Spoken by a soothsayer to Julius Ceaser in Shakespeare’s play, it’s something of a perfect prophecy. Doomy, gloomy, and so completely vague that anything from a stubbed toe to a stabbing can still be considered to ‘fit’.

  • We’re big fans of women throughout history here at Quirk Books — so much so that we’ve published several books about them! In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re looking back on our favorite girl squads throughout history with a fun, feminist quiz. (Bonus points if you complete the quiz with your BFF.) Grab your pencils and brush up on your history because this quiz is one for the ages. Literally.

    Because these women are timeless. Okay, you get it. You totally get it.

  • Captain Marvel is hitting theaters nationwide this week and we couldn’t be more excited. Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson in the sure to be blockbuster film, has a storied history in the Marvel universe. She came onto the scene in 1968 as the first to hold the Ms. Marvel name. (Kamala Khan currently holds the title, long may she reign.) In 2012, she assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel -- a role originally held by Mar-Vell. And we’ve been cheering her on ever since.
