Author of Suppertime Sonnets, a curated collection of entries from her 2009-10 experiment in writing and publishing a geeky pseudo-Shakespearean sonnet every single day, Kate Sherrod's poetry and prose has appeared in several anthologies, including From the Dark Side, The Burning Maiden and Deck the Halls. She contributes reviews of comic books and other material to several websites, including Indie Pulp, the Functional Nerds, and Guerilla Geek.

Kate is also a podcast fiction narrator, reading short fiction for Dark Fiction Magazine, Orange Arrows and other productions. Her first complete audiobook narration was James Calbraith's The Shadow of Dark Wings, in 2013.


Terrance Dicks is perhaps THE name in Doctor Who fiction. Crafter of novelizations of uncounted (by me) television episodes from the classic series, former script editor for the show, gentleman, scholar. So who else would get to launch a series of further adventures for the poor isolated Eighth Doctor, wonderfully portrayed by Paul McGann, utterly wasted in a bad American TV movie and in dange...

Kate Sherrod is 70% done with The Dragon Griaule: "The Tabourin Scale" - starts off as a portal fantasy, ends up as a disaster movie. More creepy sexism. Why for? Not my favorite of these.

This is a deeply silly and unnecessary book, one that I think must exist solely to sell classic fans on accepting the Eighth Doctor as canon. It's so fixated on continuity and continuity correction you'd think Stephen Moffat wrote it. It gets three s ...more

“This is wine," Ghoolion said solemnly. "Wine is drinkable sunlight. It's the most glorious summer's day imaginable, captured in a bottle. Wine can be a melody in a cut-glass goblet, but it can also be a cacophony in a dirty tumbler, or a rainy autumn night, or a funeral march that scorches your tongue.”

Jacob Thanks for adding me! I was going to play it safe and say Insects Maybe?, so as not to offend, but I'm glad to see you're strictly on the Yay side.


message 4: by Traveller (last edited Mar 08, 2013 12:07AM)

Traveller Hi! I appreciate your overlooking my uncharitable attitude towards certain insects.

It would be nice if one day, when both of us have the time, we could have a nice Gene Wolfe chat.

..not that GW is the only subject under potential discussion, mind. ..but your comments re Cerberus and BOTNS is what drew my attention initially. Which reminds me that still need to write some decent reviews on those.

mark monday thanks for the heads up! i look forward to reading your updates on the re-read. great choice!


message 2: by Kate

Kate Sherrod I am planning to, actually. I was fascinated with that stuff even before I encountered PKD because of Umberto Eco, so yowza! And yeah, probably dead tree, because I can't accept a $17.99 Kindle price.


message 1: by sj

sj Are you planning on reading this? I want to read it, but the annotations and footnotes seem daunting on the reader. It seems like it should be a treebook book, but I don't know if I have the wherewithal for a treebook right now. I was hoping you might give it a shot and let me know what you think. ;)
