Hello GoodReads! I'm Sam Maggs! I've written Wonder Women (fun, feminist historical biographies of pioneering women in STEM) and The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, both from Quirk Books. I'm also an Assistant Writer for a video game company called BioWare, write a lot online, and I'm on screens sometimes too; you can check out my stuff on my website. Otherwise, I mostly love YA lit, Pacific Rim, Mass Effect, Carol Danvers, and Jeff Goldblum.

Her Kind

I have gone out, a possessed witch,
haunting the black air, braver at night;
dreaming evil, I have done my hitch
over the plain houses, light by light:
lonely thing, twelve-fingered, out of mind.
A woman like that is not a woman, quite.
I have been her kind.

I have found the warm caves in the woods,
filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves,
closets, silks, innumerable goods;
fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves:
whining, rearranging the disaligned.
A woman like that is misunderstood.
I have been her kind.

I have ridden in your cart, driver,
waved my nude arms at villages going by,
learning the last bright routes, survivor
where your flames still bite my thigh
and my ribs crack where your wheels wind.
A woman like that is not ashamed to die.
I have been her kind.”
Anne Sexton, To Bedlam and Part Way Back

“Have we not all, amid life's petty strife,
Some pure ideal of a noble life
That once seemed possible? Did we not hear
The flutter of its wings, and feel it near,
And just within our reach? It was. And yet
We lost it in this daily jar and fret,
And now live idle in a vague regret.
But still our place is kept, and it will wait,
Ready for us to fill it, soon or late:
No star is ever lost we once have seen,
We always may be what we might have been.
Since Good, though only thought, has life and breath,
God's life--can always be redeemed from death;
And evil, in its nature, is decay,
And any hour can blot it all away;
The hopes that lost in some far distance seem,
May be the truer life, and this the dream.”
Adelaide Anne Procter, The Poems of Adelaide A. Procter

Harper Hi! I really loved your book, The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy. This summer, I went to my first comic-con and it was amazing! Also in the same summer, I got into comics, and now I have a bunch!
Harper!
