The pilot episode of The Mandalorian landed earlier this week (thanks to the launch of Disney+), much to the joy and excitement of many Star Wars fans. Drawing heavily on the Western genre and “the man with no name” motif, the first live-action Star Wars series is off to an incredibly solid start, and there are surely many out there who are highly anticipating the second episode of the series, available for the first time today. Written, once again, by series creator Jon Favreau (The Lion King, Iron Man) and directed by Rick Famuyima (Confirmation, Dope), the second episode answers some questions while posing others, all while continuing to give us a dusty, mythic story of a stranger wandering the rugged galactic frontier with a mask and a blaster.

The People’s Republic of Everything is the most recent short story collection from auteur author Nick Mamatas. Containing fourteen short stories and one novella, People’s Republic strays away from clear-cut genre definitions (unlike Mamatas’ prior collection, The Nickronomicon, which focused on Lovecraftian and cosmic horror) and instead veers into general speculative fiction. While the stories within People’s Republic may not be uniform in tone, setting, or style, they are all unified in conveying Mamatas’ left-aligned politics. While overtly political, People’s Republic is never preachy; its politics are seamlessly integrated into the stories, which range from the comedic to the tragic, from steampunk to folkish.
