Penny Stirling has a story published in Heiresses of Russ 2014: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction. Have bought my copy but haven't read it yet, I like lesbians and stuff by friends but don't tend to like short stories.

Book One of Horizon is finished! Horizon is a really interesting alternate history scifi fantasy story [personal profile] whatistigerbalm is writing about historians piecing together history after the world sort of ended (...I think) and trying not to get into trouble for heresy.

I got quoted in a Buzzfeed article about Chris Lilley's brownface. I don't recall being asked for permission, but I would have said yes so eh. At least people are talking about it now.

Aw shucks, I'm not in any of those fandoms. If you know of a smaller fandom equivalent of this, or are still keen on starting one, let me know! I need to be reminded twenty times over because my memory works haphazardly at best.

(And thanks for linking that! It's a massive fiction writing experiment for me so I'm happy to take any and all feedback. Next up, new characters!)

ETA: I just read the Lilley piece (I never heard of either show) and, wow... "Lilley said in an interview published this week on Splitsider that he did a lot of research for the show, spoke with people who have been to Tonga" so I went to the interview and holy shit, that's exactly what he says. He knows people who have been to Tonga; not that he's been there, lived there, consulted friends who spent their lives there. Wow. Wow.

As for the crediting, do they need to ask? I'd say yes if they wanted to reprint your entire piece, but citing from an essay in a non-personal journal meant to be read (and engaged with) by the public strikes me as being within the etiquette.

Nooooo plz remind, I am THE WORST when it comes to remembering to do stuff and unless people poke me repeatedly or I put it in my phone that then flashes reminders, I am the fail. (See, I totally missed that this is your exchange that I wanted to join.) But I totally get not wanting to bother people either because I am the same there! Oof, so sorry. SO YES PLZ IF PORTAL IS AN OPTION I KNOW AND LOVE THAT ONE thanks much!

Well, I'm glad Lilley is getting some flak somewhere! The media here was really blase about the brownface.

I've always found Lilley's pretty-much-everything offensive. I'm not sure why Summer Heights High seemed to get a pass on all of it, or anything else, either.
