A QUESTION OF TIME has been published!

My debut novel (well, long novella, actually) has been published by Champagne Books! It's a time travel SF romance called A QUESTION OF TIME. It's about an SF author who finds herself transported to her high school days in the late 1980s, where she realizes she has a chance to save a favorite teacher from death. [more inside]

The Ships We Sail - an Anthology of Stories about Love in Transit

Over the summer, I packed my hard drive with NASA technical documents and wrote a novella-length story about a manned mission to Mars. Now that and six other stories of adventure and romance are available as an ebook, of which we are very proud! [more inside]

Tilting at Werewolves

Looking at Teen Paranormal Romance books, shows, and movies, and particularly at how they present ideas of gender performance and relationship models. (Here's the inaugural post, where I lay out what the plan basically is. Highlights so far include this particularly cogent defense of (at least some aspects of) Twilight, and this epic takedown of Hush, Hush.) And today, we've started a new, 144-week-long project: watching and discussing each and every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. MeFi bonus: named via AskMe (thanks again, argonauta)!

Who Was David Algonquin? The Works Of The Mystery Man Of American Letters

Ken Cosgrove, everyone's favorite Accounts man on Mad Men, has a side career as an author with many pen names. The David Algonquin Wiki imagines a world where Ken's stories have become popular and well-remembered pieces of culture but the man himself is largely a mystery (Although Harlan Ellison is a fan). Wiki is open to anyone, with an attempt being made to write his stories round-robin style.

Across Africa for Love and Glory

My book Crossing the Heart of Africa just came out today. It's about retracing the 1898-1900 route of the British explorer Ewart Grogan from South Africa to Sudan. He did it to prove to his girlfriend's stepfather that he was worthy of marriage; I did it in part to dispel my own pre-wedding jitters. So it's an adventure-travel-history-romance-memoir. There's a photo gallery, animated map and excerpt. (For anyone who noticed a strange theme to my AskMe questions over the years - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 - this is why. And thanks!)

No Air Anywhere

Fanciful webcomic that is perhaps neither fancy nor funny. An astronaut who resembles an iPod (it's hard to draw people!) discusses life with a romantic squid. That's, pretty much, it. Enjoy!
