Onward to linkage. Fabulous linkage, too!
La Gringa pal Kelley Eskridge, author of Dangerous Space, was interviewed on the Wisconsin Public Radio show To the Best of Our Knowledge. (Look for show 12/02B. Her interview is the last of the show, starting at 38:30 and finishing at 52:00.) The program topic is "Transgender Identity." Eskridge talks with interviewer Jim Fleming about Dangerous Space and the three stories featuring the character Mars (whose gender is never identified). The segment also includes a brief reading from "And Salome Danced". Good stuff! Also, Eskridge has revamped her website; go check it out. And lest I forget (whew! so much stuff!), she also has a new blog, which I've added to my sidebar.

Speaking of Shadowbridge, Michael Swanwick has nice things to say about it as well, and he has posted Jeff VanderMeer's review of Shadowbridge from the most current issue of Realms of Fantasy. (Apparently Jeff and Michael like it as much as I did!)
