What’s on my Plate…

via: feministing.com As many as one in ten college women suffer from a clinical or nearly clinical eating disorder, including 5.1% who suffer from bulimia nervosa.

Unfortunatley, I’ve been told, mostly, it doesn’t work that way. After a 1 to 8 interest to flat rejects for my […]

As it is…

Wow. Blogger rocks. Welcome to my blogspace. The Death of Alternate History SF? An interesting conversation about the dearth of female interest in alternate history SF and the lack of female writers/judges of Alt. History SF. Leguin, in one of her essays in her latest collection, A Wave in the Mind also discusses some interesting […]
