Guide to the Blog

Somewhere along the way, I’ve ended up doing an awful lot of regular and irregular series of posts within the blog. So here’s a handy guide of where to find them all!


Agathon! [2011-]
Kathryn & I are embarking on the long-term project of reading all of Agatha Christie’s novels and short story collections in chronological (as published) order. Yes, we totally are.

DC Reboot Reviews [2011-]
reviewing a range of the new DC Comics releases following the September 2011 Reboot.

Films Romana [2010-]
Critical reviews of Hollywood’s versions of Ancient Rome, by a doctor of classics.

Friday Links [2011-]
weekly posts of links, images and vids of stuff that interests me: mostly to do with speculative fiction, publishing, feminism, Doctor Who and muppets.

Galactic Suburbia Show Notes
I’ve been posting the show notes here on my blog forever, and the link is here, but because we’ve moved servers the links to the episodes on those posts will break soon. If you want to get to the episodes themselves quickly, better to go directly to our spanking new Galactic Suburbia website.

Mama Writer [2009-]
Posts in which I explore the difficulty in balancing motherhood and a writing career – including a bunch from when my second daughter Jem was only three months old and I had a novel to write to deadline.

Pratchett’s Women [2011-]
essays exploring Terry Pratchett’s female characters in the Discworld novels

Rock the Romanpunk (including: Matrons of Awesome)

A series of blog posts I did to celebrate the release of Love and Romanpunk – a combination of serious (if snarky) essays, fun vids and pictures, and general Roman silliness and awesomeness mashed in together, as is only right and proper.

Watching New Who [2011-]
a conversational series of cherrypicked New Who episodes, with Tehani and David.

Xena Rewatch [2010-]
Detailed reviews, disc by disc, of Xena: Warrior Princess


2010 Snapshot [2010]
A bunch of interviews I did with some great Aussie writers for the 2010 Snapshot, a fortnight of mass interviewing.

30 Days of Books [2010]
a meme about the books in my life

A Modern Woman’s Guide to Classic Who [2010]
Winner of the 2011 William Atheling Award for Criticism and Review, this blog series introduces each of the eras of Classic Doctor Who, with a particular eye to what might interest a female audience trying them out for the first time.
You can also check out standalone post “THE WOMEN OF THE FIVE DOCTORS” in which I talk about how that story develops and establishes a (not always accurate) mythology for the show, often at the expense of the female companions.

Slapdash Blog Tour of Doom [2011]
guest post I wrote for many other people’s blogs in honour of the release of The Shattered City
