tj_and_amal_cover_detail_view_by_bigbigtruck-d422o1r-702x336Over the weekend my article for Women Write About Comics, about some of my favorite free comics on the internet, got published! I’m really stunned at howbeautiful it looks. There are pictures all over, and so many different colors and a colorful background – none of my previous articles have looked like that!

Anyway, to read my recommendations for “The Less than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal”, “Check, Please!”, “Starfighter” and “The Substitutes” head on over to WWAC for the full article.

Review of “Sorcerer to the Crown” by Zen Cho

25855734I recently wrote a review of Zen Cho’s excellent debut novel “Sorcerer to the Crown”, for Strange Horizons.

“Zen Cho’s Sorcerer to the Crown is set in nineteenth-century London, where magical resources are scarce and only men of a certain standing are encouraged to practice sorcery. It tells the story of Zacharias Whyte, protégé of England’s premier magician, and Prunella Gentleman, the prodigy who can restore English magic to its former glory. Both essentially orphaned as babies, Zacharias and Prunella have grown up as outsiders in their home culture, and have had to navigate a social landscape that doesn’t quite know what to do with them. Zacharias was born to enslaved parents and purchased as an infant by the wealthy Englishman who would raise him as his son, and Prunella is the daughter of a British officer who came back from India with a daughter of mixed heritage and a bag of mysterious magical objects.”
