Fangirl Happy Hour – Episode 8
Episode 8 of Fangirl Happy Hour is up! In which Ana and Renay talk about the Dark Mythological Western Graphic Novel Pretty Deadly; have a look at ALL THE AWARDS (including the Hugos, Clarke, Nebulas, Tiptree, etc); and then the My-Fair-Lady-Meets-Terminator romance No Proper Lady.
