The book has so thoroughly eaten my head the last couple of weeks, I forgot that I hadn’t followed up on the icon contest.

“Their characteristics are well-known. They're beautiful -- when they're not astoundingly ugly. They're both goddesses for men to worship, and demons for them to flee. They adore children, sometimes to the point of unhealthy obsession. They have a strong association with nature, from which they're often assumed to draw magical power. Their anger is a terrible thing to behold, and all the more fearsome because anything can spark it; the rules by which these creatures operate are not those of rational men. They are creatures of fanciful whim, and they never, ever, can be understood.

I'm talking, of course, about women.”
Marie Brennan

“Matriarchy is a time-honored staple for any writer looking to invent an exotic society.”
Marie Brennan

“Once we love, we cannot revoke it,' she said. 'We can only glory in what it brings -- pain as well as joy, grief as well as hope.”
Marie Brennan, Midnight Never Come

Moira Russell OMG hello! I bought Midnight for my Kindle, started reading it, and then got the other three books too so I could read them in sequence right away. Plus the novella. Lune is fantastic.
