  • [livejournal.com profile] reasie has a story, Jupiter Wrestlerama, up in Lightspeed. She writes, "The core of the story had always been small-town life, and I made it a story about that." If you like stories about economics, hard choices, and the outer reaches of the solar system, you will like this story.

  • [livejournal.com profile] hrj wrote a book called Daughter of Mystery which I have been pressing on all of my friends who might appreciate a swashbuckling lesbian romance. The magic system is also very interesting. At some point I wrote a list of 'characters who have stuck with me', which divided neatly into independent, imaginative women and absent-minded male scientists. In Daughter of Mystery, women get to be independent, imaginative, and scientifically minded, which, alas, is all too rare. Specifically, the magic in this story is susceptible to careful intellectual (especially linguistic) analysis-- it doesn't just depend on the intensity of characters' emotions, or the power of their specialness-- which I found refreshing.
