Nerds of a Feather gives me something to crow about!

"(in UNCANNY TIMES), Gilman makes us care about the characters, who they are, what they are, to themselves, to each other and the world around them... and Gilman does an excellent job in showing us their past competence, allusions to prior encounters and sets us up for the adventure at hand…

The book is, in the end, a mystery, a(n) unfolding of secrets and history of the town… Gilman does a great job at the balance."

@kiesa I have been there and it's not fun. Fingers crossed that weather conditions stay good and the fire dies out soon.

I'm delighted to share I'll be convening the Best Fantasy Novel panel for the Aurealis Awards this year.

Pray for my TBR pile. 😂

Over at Nerds of a Feather, Joe Sherry has a few things to say about the proposed amendments to the Hugo Awards for Best Series.

It was briefly gone, but if you're into two-player roleplaying games about weird and intimate relationships (whether they're buddy cops, awkward dates, or... a battle mech and its pilot?), my Lovers' Suite Bundle is still live on Itch! itch.io/s/55325/the-lovers-sui

@abetterjulie If I keep checking my email, the things I ordered might get here sooner?

I read his file. He was too lucky in his investments for it to be down to chance. I suspected that he’d travelled back in time to make it rich. So I’d gone back a decade to catch him, undercover.

We encounter each other on a crowded commuter train. I strike up a conversation.

“Did you get today’s Wordle?” I venture.

“Not yet,” he responds.

In a trice, I cuff him. “You’re nicked.”

Further season report: plovers nesting in the middle of traffic rounadabouts. 🤦‍♀️

(Although better that than the poor people with them nesting in their front yards.)

Season report: my Australian native hybrid orchid is flowering! I had some trouble with fungal gnats a few months back, so this is a great relief to see. And I almost didn't see it, since it is so tiny and hiding among dusty leaves.

I'm back Nerds of a Feather for the second time this week with a review of THIS ALL COME BACK NOW. Mykaela Saunders lovingly curates a mixtape of Australian First Nations speculative fiction in this ground-breaking anthology.

so I've got covid 

@WizardOfDocs That sounds pretty awful. I hope it passes quickly and you feel better soon.

@Nezchan In that case, try Foxhunt by Rem Wigmore. It's published by Queen of Swords Press.

@Nezchan I could recommend one with an enemies to friends (and presumably lovers once the rest of the series is released) between a trans woman and a genderfluid character, but I'm not sure that's really what you're looking for?

Today over at Nerds of a Feather I have the great pleasure of sharing an interview with one of Aotearoa's rising talents, Rem Wigmore.

We discuss coffee and the delights of What We Do In The Shadows.

Season report: wrens, blackbirds and temperatures warm enough to open up the house, at least for a short time. It feels like spring is on the way.
