Month: February 2012


We have a new/old dog. Just adopted from a dog rescue place. A placid, loveable thing with a wonderful name: Nemo!
Here he is with our old/not so old dog (Pipper) and some random legs.


Australian Women Writers

I decided many a long month ago to take up the Australian Women Writers 2012 Reading and Review challenge. I’ve been truly ashamed to learn how many AWWs there are, thriving and prospering, all without my knowledge and even just within the narrow confines of my first love, spec fiction.

My reading list is growing but, right now contains:

Deborah Biancotti’s Bad Power

Tansy Rayner Roberts’ Creature Court Trilogy along with Love and RomanPunk

Margo Lanagan’s Tender Morsels and Sea Hearts

Kim Westwood’s The Courier’s New Bicycle

I’d also like to read some Kate Forsyth, Pamela Freeman, Kim Falconer, Robin Hobb, Kylie Chan, RJ Astruc …

I’ve begun Marianne de Pierres’ Dark Space and dipped into Margo Lanagan’s Black Juice.

I fear that my reading is so far behind that my reviews will be next to worthless, but the challenge has already proved its worth.
