“The sister book to the 2011 Hugo Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords

In Chicks Unravel Time, Deborah Stanish (Whedonistas) and L.M. Myles bring together a host of award-winning female writers, media professionals and scientists to examine each season of new and classic Doctor Who from their unique perspectives.

Diana Gabaldon discusses how Jamie McCrimmon inspired her best-selling Outlander series, and Barbara Hambly (Benjamin January Mysteries) examines the delicate balance of rebooting a TV show. Seanan McGuire (Toby Daye series) reveals the power and pain of waiting in Series 5, and Una McCormack (The King’s Dragon) argues that Sylvester McCoy’s final year of Doctor Who is the show’s best season ever.

Other contributors include Juliet McKenna (Einarrin series), Tansy Rayner Roberts (Power and Majesty), Sarah Lotz (The Mall), Martha Wells (The Cloud Roads), Joan Frances Turner (Dust), Rachel Swirsky (“Fields of Gold”), Aliette de Bodard (Obsidian and Blood series) and Amal El-Mohtar (The Honey Month).”

This has been an incredibly exciting project, and I’m delighted to see it come together. There’re contributions from so many wonderful writers and a fantastic variety of essays in the book, exploring the series with intelligence, wit, humour and passion, and I can’t wait to share them.

The obligatory Exciting First Post

This is a very exciting post where I’m making a shiny RL blog thing to talk about writing and pro-ish projects and try and make, dare I say it, thoughtful posts as opposed to what I usually do when blogging. I hope those people who said nice things about WordPress weren’t fibbing to me.

It all looks strange and different and I want that column on the right, darn it, the right! Presumably I’ll be able to work out how to do this. Or maybe I’ll be thwarted by the absurd temperature that’s currently going on here and my brain will melt.

Oh there’s a wee word count! That’s quite keen. I like that.
