On Scott Lynch and Elizabeth Bear

I was groomed and abused by Scott Lynch and Elizabeth Bear for several years.For a long time, I never wanted to talk about this in public. I didn’t want anybody to know about this. I only began rethinking yesterday and I was still considering what to do about it, but…...Apparently I don’t have that luxury anymore. Additionally, I’ve recently heard some new information about their abusive behavior Read more of this blog post »

This book is a warm cup of tea made by someone who loves you. It's a soft hug of a book that says, "It's okay if you're not okay right now."

There are more memes-per-capita in this book than any book I have read. This is pure unadulterated meme garbage and I LOVED EVERY PAGE OF IT. It is hilarious and terrifying and heart-hurting and full of dreadful teens and dirtbag lesbians with swords ...more

“Because who you were is just the stories you tell yourself about yourself, and the intersection of all the hurts you've ever had and how you survived them.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Choir of Lies

“Nuryevet wasn't a real thing--it was a story that people told one another. An idea they constructed in fantasy and then in stone and mortar, in lines of ink in labyrinthine law books, in cities and roads. It was a map, if you will, drawn on a one-to-one scale and laid out over the whole landscape like so much smothering cloth. So when I say there was nothing in Nuryevet worth saving, that's what I mean: the story wasn't worth saving, and none of its monstrous whelps were either--the government, their methods, the idea that they could feed their poor to the story like cattle to a sea monster so the wealthy could eat its leavings.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Conspiracy of Truths

“Who you are isn't the thoughts in your head or the fears in your heart or the name someone else gives you or takes from you. Who you are is what you do. It's the actions you take, or that you don't take. It's the way that you help people, or don't. It's the good that you put into the world, or the bad.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Conspiracy of Truths
