What is Interstellar Teahouse?
Succinctly? A hot cup of tea for Social Justice Astronauts.
Officially? A place for science fiction and fantasy topics in progressive, forward-looking, diverse, and underrepresented flavors, keeping fun and intersectionality in mind. (This is a work in progress.)
Verbosely? A home for a wide variety of geeky stuff, science fiction and fantasy topics, and sff-adjacent things. We span the gamut: personal essays and reflections, interesting news, advice, recs or reviews, projects, things we love, peeves, and liberal amounts of squee. We do our best and when we screw up, we’ll apologize and do better next time.
