What I Wrote: The Fiscal-Quarter Edition
As always, these posts begin with a note that I am much better about updating my Twitter about current events than I am about updating this blog with them. Some of that is my fault; some of that is because sometimes you read an announcement about a modern-day King Arthur procedural or an article about how to bother a woman wearing headphones and you just have to say something immediately. However, sometimes you just want a nice linkspam that you can use with a header image where you spend way… Read more »
ICON
ICON, the sequel to PERSONA, is officially out in the world! It takes place more or less a year after PERSONA’s assassination attempt on Suyana Sapaki, in which there’s a new, calm, stable status quo…for about five minutes, since the International Assembly is not the kind of crowd you can leave unattended. NPR was very kind (and cracked me up in the middle, for reasons you might guess). And Barnes & Noble was similarly kind: “near-perfect” is the sort of pullquote you dream about. It’s always strange for me to… Read more »
La beauté sans vertu
In April, my short story “La beauté sans vertu” was published at Tor.com. “Rhea, the head of the House, likes the look of her (“Something miserable in the turn of the mouth,” she says with great satisfaction, already sketching). Maria does one season as an exclusive for Centifolia’s fall collection that year, opening a single catwalk in a black robe weighed down with thirteen pounds of embroidery, her feet spearing the floor and her hands curled into fists. After that the press comes calling.” The site’s intro blurb calls the… Read more »
A Few Hours in a Far-Off Age, and Other Books
Sometimes, you read a book and it leaves you with a giant list of other books you have to tackle. Recently, for NPR, I’ve reviewed a string of great books. The Story of Hong Gildong (in a welcome translation), The Other Slavery (a grueling account of enslavement beyond Africa, in particular Native Americans – avoid the comments), Possession (half a dissertation on art collection as political identity, half tattling on Popes, all amazing). The one that gave me the longest reading list was Blockbuster! It’s a literary biography about the… Read more »
Penny Dreadful, and a Blade of Grass
Penny Dreadful, that glorious bastion of subtext-made-text, ended this past weekend, bringing a three-season fascination with Vanessa Ives to a close. The series finale was…a disappointment. I wrote about the problems with this arc in a piece at Salon, so we don’t need to rehash all of it here, but I do want to dig into a few specifics. We’ll start with this picture of The Big Moment, because it gets to the heart of my ambivalence. Is that a stunning, Gothic moment? Hell yes it is, look at that… Read more »
XENA: The Power, The Passion, The Comic
I’ll be honest; I assume most people interested in keeping up with my stuff (you are all awesome) are also on Twitter on Tumblr, and so this is all old news to you. But in case you’re blog-only: I’m writing the Xena: Warrior Princess comic! The covers, by Jenny Frison, are amazing. The interior art, by Ariel Medel, is charming as hell. (My scripts have 800 notes about Xena and Gabrielle giving each other old-married looks, and he’s been a champ about making room for those despite the fact that… Read more »
