i was carried to ohio in a swarm of bees

I'm writing book reviews and essays today so there won't be much blogging, but here, have something lovely--

Sandra McDonald's Periodic Table of Women in SFF

Nonexhaustive and there are several things about it that make me smile. Not the least of which is that I am a little sniffly to be included in such company.

Those are some hell-raisin' ladies on there.

Speaking of blogging, I'm brainstorming ways to get more process discussion back in this space. It's really what the blog is for, all dog pictures and harrowing caving stories aside, and I'd like to get back to my roots and talk about some writing if I can.

FREE BOOKS! FREE BOOKS! (the clarion call)

As some of you already know, the Tor edition of Hugo-nominated shared-world anthology METAtropolis (featuring novellas by John Scalzi, Tobias Buckell, Karl Schroeder, Jay Lake, and, er, me) comes out on June 8th.

So we're having a contest to give away five copies of it, one on each blog.

Which means after you enter here (contest closes on 6/7 and winners will be announced on 6/8--those are American-style dates, BTW) you can wander over to the other blogs and enter there (as soon as their posts go up, I mean) and have not one not two but five (FIVE!) chances to WIN A FREE BOOK.

Ahem.

To enter my contest, simply post in comments your photoshopped, gimped, collaged-and-scanned, drawn, photographed, or otherwise imaged still from the movie of METAtropolis. With caption. 

I'm going to pick the one that makes me laugh hardest.

"What?" you say, "but there is no movie of METAtropolis?"

Well then. Just consider it an opportunity to exercise your creativity.

And we all know the movie is nothing like the book, right?

Ready? Steady... GO!
