Urban fantasy is a very crowded field right now, and I know that my publisher is being very cautious about new UF series.

As far as a spin off novel or series -- I like the kitsune quite a lot, and I'd love to explore them further. Suzume's story is too closely entwined in the primary events of the current series, but I wouldn't mind exploring the lives of some of her interesting cousins, or possibly even Atsuko someday.(less)

The Hugo nominations were announced this week, at which point everyone got confirmation for what we pretty much all knew — that the Rabid Puppies were going to double-down on being assholes, and that the slate voting and ballot stuffing is pretty much here to stay until there can be an official rules change. Good news — the rule change was approved last year at Worldcon, and just needs to pass...

“With how you were reacting to that glamour, I'll have to keep an eye on you. Otherwise the next time I see you, you'll probably have a Doctor Who tramp stamp.

For one awkward second, I realized that the only way Suzume could possibly look hotter to me was if she had a tattoo of the TARDIS on the middle of her lower back. I was profoundly grateful in that moment that the kitsune were unable to read minds.”
M.L. Brennan, Iron Night

“I’d never exactly wanted a reputation—frankly, I’d spent most of my life just trying to fade into the background of almost every situation I was in—but I’d apparently, despite my best efforts, secured one for myself. Fortitude Scott—Holy Shit, We’re Glad You’re Not Your Sister.”
M.L. Brennan, Dark Ascension

“Prudence was waiting for us when we arrived, and I saw her visibly wince as I pulled the Fiesta into the parking space beside her Lexus, like an automotive version of Lady in the Tramp.
M.L. Brennan, Iron Night

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

“Becoming a fae leader? Not on my bucket list.”
E.J. Stevens, Ghost Light

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

[Kung Fu Monkey -- Ephemera, blog post, March 19, 2009]”
John Rogers

“There were no windows in my bedroom, so I had to sit up and read my clock to figure out how angry I should be at my visitor. Eight A.M. I hated whoever woke me up. Had they come an hour earlier, I would have also hated their families and any household pets.”
Lish McBride, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer

“On top of all that, you're naked. And while I'm going to hate myself for this later, could you put on some clothes? At least just for a little while, so I can think. Then you can go right back to being naked. All the time. With my full blessing.”
Lish McBride, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer

message 2: by M.L.

M.L. Brennan The end is so perfect -- the last text message, then the Sherlock reveal, then just that look on her face. PERFECTION.


Kathy (Kindle-aholic) YES! I concur. Best Irene Adler. :)

And the end of the episode: LOVE
