Tapped

Tapped

I have nothing interesting to say here today.  Over on Fantasy I have many snarky things to say about Torchwood. That should make you happy!  Also, there is new Sinister Cat.  Oh how I love that cat. And!  Winners of the Fangland contest.  You should really, really read the winners, for the are v. good.

Grand Theft Auto

Grand Theft Auto

Wil Wheaton has a great post about moral panic and GTA, sparked by the fact that GTA IV comes out today. Before the game is even out there’s people freaking out about bus ads and screaming WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN and whatever other nonsense. Cue eye roll. The fact that kids shouldn’t even […]

Reviewing

Reviewing

The recent stuff about Authors Behaving Badly reminded me that I wanted to write something on Mike Brotherton’s SFNovelists post about reviews and reviewers. A little while ago he put up some guidelines for what he thinks reviewers shouldn’t do from the perspective of a writer. The basics: Guideline 1: Reviewers should stick to reviewing […]

What I'm Saying Elsewhere

1. The Fangland contest is over! But you still have a chance to participate (a little). We have more than one copy to award, so we’re going to give one to the entry the readers like the most. Check out the entries here and vote for your favorite in the comments. The entry with the […]

SFWA: Overrun By 12-Year-Olds?

SFWA: Overrun By 12-Year-Olds?

Good news this weekend, the SFWA election results are in and Andrew Burt is NOT the next president. That honor goes to Russell Davis, who had an overwhelming majority. Go Russell! I was also pleased to see my bud Mrs Robinette in there as Secretary. Maybe now she can sneak me in! But while perusing […]

WTF Authors?

WTF Authors?

Scalzi encourages authors to post their 1-star Amazon reviews because, hey, it may sting, but it’s not the end of the world. What inspired this? Why, an author acting as if bad reviews are the end of the world! Not just by whining and complaining about them, but by actively harassing the reviewers and encouraging […]

Dear CSI (of any flavor)

Dear CSI (of any flavor)

Something you seem unable to grasp: You Are Not A Soap Opera Seriously. We don’t care if one CSI is cheating on another and we don’t appreciate the return of the Black Man As Addict storyline and, honestly, we really don’t need to know that much about the lives of the CSIs. That’s not why […]

Drabblecast!

Drabblecast!

Found out last week that my drabble from Farthing, issue 2, was accepted at Drabblecast!  When the cast goes live, I’ll let you know.  My PodCastle stories are coming up soon, too.

Oh Boob Grab, We’ll Miss Thee (actually, we won’t, but…)

Oh Boob Grab, We'll Miss Thee (actually, we won't, but...)

Yesterday when I found out about the open source boob project I figured I should write something up for FSFBlog about it. Something more comprehensive than WTF PEOPLE. However, Liz beat me to it! And brilliantly. Everyone should go read her post, cuz she has awesome links. I am as impressed with the swiftness and […]

4 Things Make A Post

4 Things Make A Post

Thank you, everyone, for the birthday wishes. They made me smile on a day when I didn’t have much to smile about. Don’t forget to enter our contest to win a copy of Fangland!  I mean, damn, most of you are writers, you just know you could come up with some fun fanfiction based on […]

Submitting Strategy

Submitting Strategy

Earlier this week I wrote a post about how Asimov’s, under Sheila Williams, has published more women this year (so far) than F&SF or Analog by a significant amount.  I mentioned this for several reasons, though probably not the one people think.  Though some people grokked my main reason, which was to make people (scratch) […]

I’m on the Tiptree jury!

I'm on the Tiptree jury!

Now that the other jurists are confirmed, I can jump up and down about this in public. Debbie Notkin asked me to be on the 2009 Tiptree jury, which means I, along with other fabulous people, will pick the winners from 2008 published fiction. I’m so excited about this I cannot tell you. It’s a […]

Vitae

I'm a writer, most often committing acts of genre (fantasy, science fiction, and other stretches of the imagination). You can find my short stories in many and various magazines and anthologies and podcasts. In addition to being a writer I also engage in activism and fandom -- often both at once.
