Stacks of reading for my dissertation: Frankenstein's Daughters: Women Writing Science Fiction by Jane Donawerth, Feminist Philosophy and Science Fiction edited by Judith Little, Liminal Lives by Susan Squier, Galactic Suburbia: Recovering Women's Science Fiction by Lisa Yaszek, The Clewiston Test by Kate Wilhelm, Feminism and Science Fiction by Sarah Lefanu, Into the Forest by Jean Hegland, The Dazzle of Day by Molly Gloss, Mutagenesis by Helen Collins, A Paradigm of Earth by Candas Jane Dorsey, and a couple of others that I can't identify at this point.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
