…well, I say ‘met’, but I really mean ‘went to her talk in Bristol and got signed copy of MaddAddam for my troubles afterwards’. Still, it was totally amazing. See?!
And MaddAddam itself has not disappointed so far. I will write a proper review when I’ve finished it. If you are not familiar with the Oryx and Crake–Year of the Flood-MaddAddam trilogy, and like feminist, future concept, environmentalist, anti-capitalist mash-ups, then I suggest you check it out.
Some other news:
-I entered a contest ran by Hodder and Stoughton to be the first person in the UK to read Stephen King’s upcoming Doctor Sleep (incl. night in a luxury hotel). Unfortunately, I didn’t win the top prize, but I won an official poster. Better than a punch in the face, eh?
-I wrote a review for FWSA (Feminist and Women’s Studies Association) of Anti-Porn Feminism: The Resurgance of Anti-Porn Feminism by Julia Long. So watch this space, yo.
-I am currently reviewing Female Suicide Bombers by Rosemarie Skaine, also for FWSA.
