Tansy Rayner Roberts is a fantasy and science fiction author who lives in southern Tasmania, somewhere between the tall mountain with snow on it, and the beach that points towards Antarctica.

Tansy has a PhD in Classics (with a special interest in poisonous Roman ladies), an obsession with Musketeers, and is raising two superhero daughters who are going to rule the world someday.

You can hear Tansy ranting and raving about all things science fiction feminist on the Galactic Suburbia podcast, and all things Doctor Who on the Verity! podcast. She also reads her own stories on the Sheep Might Fly podcast.

Hi Carolyn

I'm really sorry, the timing on this one is unfortunate. The books officially went out of print this month, and so the publisher have taken them down from all e-vendors just in the last few weeks. I am currently looking at my options with a few other publishers, but I'm also putting some serious thought into crowdfunding to release my own editions in e-book as well as print.

I'll definitely make any announcements on a new edition here on GoodReads, and you might also want to sign up to my newsletter for updates on new releases http://tansyrr.com/tansywp/books/fake...

I'm so sorry to have such a disappointing answer! Having my rights back for these books is excellent in the long term but not great in the short term.(less)

One of the great joys of reading (or rereading) vintage crime novels is finding the origin point (or at least, very early examples) of favourite mystery tropes.

Tansy Rayner Roberts, 50 Roman Mistresses: Scandal, virtue and womanhood in Ancient Rome

“There's something beautiful about the perfect hashtag. Never underestimate what can be accomplished with a few carefully chosen characters strung together behind a number symbol.

At its purest, the hashtag contains and defines and reduces a massive idea down to a single word or phrase. The best ones offer subversive commentary on themselves.

Truly, the hashtag is the epic poem of the 21st century.”

“Wine and conversation were all very well, but books were books were books.”

Talie Helene Hi Tansy. :-)


Rowena Daniells Hi Tansy,

Arghhh, another pass word!

Not sure what I'm going to do with this Good Reads thing.

I'm reading non fiction for research at the moment. A history of QLD. Believe me, Brisbane was like the Wild West (the real Wild West) in the 1850s.

Cheers, R.
