Ruling the Death Star
In a black cape and helmet –
“I am your father”
For today’s A to Z Blogging Challenge, try to identify the science fiction/fantasy word, starting with V, that’s suggested by the haiku. It’s another character name, and it’s one of the most familiar names in the science fantasy realm. Bad guy with a black cape, helmet, loud breathing sounds – I’m sure you know who this is! Tell us in the comments.
On the bridge she says,
“Hailing frequencies open,”
In her short red skirt
Today’s haiku puzzle for the A to Z Blogging Challenge is another character name, in a familiar science fiction/fantasy universe. She was a groundbreaking character in many ways: the first black woman on prime time TV who had an important, responsible, professional job, with the respect of all her coworkers. She fought not only aliens, but racism and sexism. In spite of the short skirt.
Time is relative;
So are dimensions in space.
It’s bigger inside!
We now begin the final push in the A to Z blogging challenge. One more week! Today’s puzzle should be an easy one for anyone who is connected to the science fiction/fantasy world. This one’s not about a character or a place but a vehicle. It’s not a word, actually, but an acronym. Know what I’m talking about? Tell us in the comments!
Earth – my favorite planet of them all. For Earth Day I want to share this picture of my planet, taken September a year ago up in New York’s Adirondack region, being warm and welcoming and a lovely place to live. Let’s keep it that way, okay?

Seven chevrons encoded,
Gateway to the stars
I didn’t mean to break out in alliteration for today’s entry in the A to Z Blogging Challenge, but that’s how it came out. It’s another puzzle haiku, where you have to figure out what word from science fiction and fantasy that starts with S is suggested by the puzzle. This one is the name, not of a person, but a device, a piece of alien technology harnessed by humans to explore the galaxy. Once you know it, tell us in the comments.
Tomorrow we have a break in the A to Z schedule, but then we push straight through without a break to the end of the alphabet and the end of the month. See you Monday!
To Mount Doom it goes,
Cast down into the fire
To save Middle Earth
We’re back into classic fantasy for today’s entry in the A to Z Blogging Challenge, another puzzle haiku for the letter R. What fantasy word is suggested by the haiku that starts with R? Once you get it, tell us in the comments.
He snaps his fingers,
And with limitless power
Plays games with starships
Here’s today’s haiku puzzle for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. As usual, figure out the word suggested by the haiku that starts with Q. It’s a difficult one, I’m afraid, but Q is often difficult. If you’re a fan of the SF universe we’re in today you should know the name of this character. Well, not really a name; its the designation of all the beings of this kind, but it’s the name we use for him. And it’s not really a word, either. Sort of a minimal word. Anyway, if you do manage to figure it out, good for you! Let us know in the comments.
