This blog began life as an attempt to chronicle my fishkeeping exploits with a four-foot tropical tank. I don’t know whether anyone ever read those sad fishy tales of water chemistry and death; all of the fish are now long gone, and even the tank has moved on to (hopefully) a better home. Today, the blog mostly consists of somewhat random thoughts revolving around science fiction books and movies, feminism, and other such stimulating topics. I’ve won a couple of Ditmar Awards for work that’s appeared here.
I am one third of the podcasting team at Galactic Suburbia, so that features a fair bit. We’ve won a Hugo Award for best Fancast, the Peter McNamara Convenors’ Award for Excellence (Aurealis Awards), and two Ditmar Awards for Best Fan Production. I also co-edited Letters to Tiptree, with Alisa Krasnostein, in 2015; it won the William Atheling Award for Review or Criticism and the Convenors’ Award for Excellence at the Aurealis Awards.
That picture up the top is of Cappadocia, Turkey, one lovely January dawn. I took it while floating in a hot air balloon.
