Galactic Suburbia. We talk a lot.
Hi. I have listened to about half-a-dozen episodes, and I wanted to let you know I’m enjoying them, and thank you for putting them out. I listen to several genre podcasts, and this is fun for not being like all the others.
I just listened to the Joanna Russ episode. I have not read any of her work, but I’ve ordered, _How to Suppress Women’s Writing_, and will be borrowing, _The Female Man_, from the library, so you do have an influence on what people read.
I do not know if you ladies read much Urban Fantasy, but one of my favorite books of the year is, _My Life As a White Trash Zombie_, by Diana Rowland. The protagonist is a young woman considered by all, including her self, to be a white trash loser. The book is based on the ironic premise that her life only turns around after she becomes a zombie. It is a fun, crass, romp of a good story, but it also deals with her liberating herself from an abusive home, and I thought that it did so with a great deal of humanity and compassion. I recommend it, for what that’s worth.
