This is my favourite link of the week, for entirely selfish reasons: Jason Sanford is reading the new issue of the SFWA Bulletin and rather enjoying it.
“This is what we’ve all been wanting from SFWA—a member magazine which actually provides useful information to members.”
Still talking about my crazy projects, Cranky Ladies of History got some serious National press time this week, with an article in the Age as well as a bunch of other newspapers across the country, in print and online. It brought in way fewer pledges than did the ABC article a couple of weeks ago, but hey. We’ve funded, so there’s nothing but smiles over here. (Night Terrace on Kickstarter funded too! Hooray for crowdfunding!)
Over at the Verity Podcast, the hosts who are not me (AGAIN, sob!) discuss the Cybermen as quintessential Doctor Who villains. It’s a great ep, with every era mulled over and defended/championed by one or other of the Verities. Just when I was getting cross none of them had mentioned The Invasion, in came Liz on her white charger to remind everyone what we were missing. I also enjoyed Lynne championing Silver Nemesis, Erika squeeing about The Tenth Planet, and Deb being quite valiant about the New Who Cybermen. Liz then wrote up an almost completely wrong (but occasionally right) list of the best Cybermen stories in order.
