I had this post almost ready to go for a while, and a few friends asked for some useful links – so here they are. This is basically a list of links with ammo for when I end up in discussions about sexism in SF/F publishing, sexism in gaming, sexism in Scandinavia, and some related […]
This rare book auction catalogue finally has a launch date: FantasyCon in September 2014! What is it, then? Here’s the editor’s description: The notorious library of the Church of Starry Wisdom was left to rot when the cult abandoned Providence for parts unknown. Robert Blake discovered what was left of the library in his 1938 […]

Stephen King’s On Writing was the first good book I encountered on the subject, for two reasons. Firstly, his relaxed stance on sucky writing. Secondly, describing stories as archaeological finds […]
of current things. Whey cheese is the food of the gods. Not the Terence McKenna’s food of the gods, because it doesn’t make you hallucinate, more of a general ambrosia. I’m not happy about having to get the winter coat already. Writing in your notebooks with anything else than archival ink will piss off your […]
So this is unbelievably cool: a Spanish LARP directly inspired by my short story “Sing” (which you can read here) We live in the era of space exploration and colonization. Humanity has reached the stars and for many generations of FTL travel, we have explored and colonized inhabitable worlds. Siren was one of those worlds. […]
A week or so after the fact, a short report from Fantasticon 2013 in Copenhagen. I went with great anticipation, because even though I live just half an hour away from Copenhagen I’ve had very little contact with Danish SFF writers or fandom.
