Luckily for Gammons (aka Optician) the producers rejected his original name: Hairy Eyeball.

so let’s chat about IRON WIDOW
We interrupt our regularly scheduled aesthetic posting with a special message about the upcoming science-fiction YA novel IRON WIDOW by non-binary cosplayer, history buff, and YouTube sensation Xiran Jay Zhao (links to their website in the next post)
I have a longer, more formal “review” of this book scheduled for the release date (September 21st, 2021) but I really, really want to hype this book up as much as possible as early as possible to encourage people to pre-order it. I haven’t been this excited about a YA book in quite a while. Let me tell you why!
- It was pitched as PACIFIC RIM meets THE HANDMAID’S TALE in a world inspired by Chinese folklore and history, where boy-girl teams pilot giant mecha to fight alien monsters -- but the psychic strain usually kills the girls. But only the girls....hmmm...something fishy is going on here...
- The main character is a reimagining of Wu Zetian, the only female emperor of China, who decides she’s going to assassinate the boy who murdered her older sister by volunteering to be his next co-pilot. She assassinates him so well that she kills him through their psychic link and becomes a dreaded IRON WIDOW!
- This makes her very interesting to the government, which would really prefer to make her disappear, but can’t afford to waste that kind of psychic power -- so they pair her up with a ~dangerous criminal~ to pilot a new mecha, confident that he will be psychically strong enough to overpower her
- This backfires spectacularly, and suddenly Wu Zetian and her co-pilot have to manipulate both pop culture and the government just to stay alive.
- Plot ensues.
Why should you read this book?
Go back and re-read that plot summary until you understand why  BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!
- We have a polyamorous F/M/M mutual relationship, I repeat, we PRE-EMPTIVELY SOLVE a LOVE TRIANGLE with POLYAMORY
- Wu Zetian is an amazing anti-hero and I mean that with all my heart. She is constantly doing stuff in this book that made me go, “Wait, can you do that?”  She WILL cut a bitch. Also, she uses a cane or wheelchair because she has bound feet, and you can tell that Xiran really went the extra mile to think about how to portray this and how it affects the character. A lot of YA protagonists can start to feel “same-y” after a while to me, but Wu Zetian REALLY stands out.
- The world is really, really cool? There is SO MUCH going on with the aliens and the mecha and the world they’re living in which I cannot spoil except to say that your primary emotion through the third act will be “?!!!?!!?!!?!!!” AND even outside of the meta plot, there is so much thought and detail put into the rest of the setting, it is so beautiful and it feels like you’re really there. Plus every character is a reimagining/reference to a historical or folklore figure and it was really neat to go on a little scavenger hunt of “Oh! I recognize that name!”
- IRON WIDOW will do for YA sci-fi what CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE did for YA fantasy -- if it gets support. Xiran has talked about how they couldn’t get an American publisher to even consider publishing this book because publishers didn’t think American audiences would be interested in Chinese folklore or idol culture or a story about giant mecha, which?? Have they MET the internet?? They were also told that schools and libraries will be reluctant to stock IRON WIDOW because of the polyamorous romance. BUT that is why I really hope people show up for this book because it is SO DESERVING OF SUCCESS and it could open so many doors for other writers and for the whole YA landscape
- Xiran Jay Zhao is a really cool non-binary author and their writing is as charismatic and entertaining as their other content. I just think they’re neat!
- And one more thing? The cover looks like this:

My favorite part of that BBC tweet identifying a Gundam as a Transformer has been seeing the Japanese posting in response:
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
ID: Three screenshots of three different tweets with pictures.
1. A tweet by @Daitotetsugen (in all caps), originally in Japanese that says:
“このネタは散々見てきたけど、英語版を見た時は爆笑 した” and machine translated to English that says:
“I’ve seen this story a lot, but when I saw the English version I burst into laughter.”
The picture is titled “Giant robot identification chart” and it’s made up of four rows with four pictures each of mechas and robots of different media, almost all labeled incorrectly.
Robots labelled incorrectly as “Transformers”:  Gundam Rx 78-2,  Zeku 2, Mazinger Z, Getter 1, Eva Unit 01,  Yf-19, Valsione R, Astro Delta Megazord, Daileon, Big O   
Robots labelled incorrectly as “Evangelion”:  RahXephon, Yuubrain, Tactical Surface Fighter, Nirvash Type Zero  
Robots labelled incorrectly as “Megazord”: Optimus Prime
Labelled correctly: ATM-09-STTC Scopedog Turbo Custom The Last Red Shoulder Ver.
2. A tweet by @Seskou (in all caps), originally in Japanese that says:
“メガゾード!” and machine translated to English that says:
“Megazord!”  
The picture attached to it is a drawing in color of the Gundam Rx 78-2 transformed as a trailer truck and engaging in a three step transformation sequence into his usual form.
There are two things written in Japanese in the picture:
戦え!超ロボット生命体 - Fight! Super robot lifeform (roughly translated)
エヴァンゲリオン  - The title of Neon Genesis Evangelion
3.  A tweet by @naototsushima, originally in Japanese that says:
“まあまあ間違えはよくある事さ仲良くやろうや ” and machine translated to English that says:
“It’s a common mistake, let’s get along”  
The picture attached to it is a drawing in color of Optimus Prime and the   Gundam Rx 78-2 shaking hands while looking at the viewer. They are seen from hips up and the background is green.
