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)

THE PACKAGING: We’re up to Volume Six of the JLI trades… and sadly the last of this series. I’m gonna be elbows deep in flimsies by next month. Trades kick in again in 1992, but until then we’ll be digging through my filing cabinet. This last JLI trade alternates between JLA & JLE (as does this blog) because of the Teasdale Imperative crossover that begins with this issue.

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.
