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; the Convenors’ Award for Excellence at the Aurealis Awards; the Locus Award for Non-Fiction and the British Fantasy Award for Non-Fiction.
That picture up the top is of Cappadocia, Turkey, one lovely January dawn. I took it while floating in a hot air balloon.
