GUYS LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN FORBIDDEN PLANET TODAY! :-D



Yep, it's a shiny, newly-minted copy of COMPANION PIECE, edited by L.M. Myles and Liz Barr, published by Mad Norwegian Press, and containing an essay by me! Eeep. I haven't actually received my contributor copies yet, but I already know that all 30-something essays, by a whole bunch of fabulous women, will be dazzling and thought-provoking and delightful. The book is the third in the Doctor Who 'Geek Girl' series - following the success of Chicks Dig Timelords and Chicks Unravel Time - and this one focuses, as you might imagine from the title, on the Companions. *All* of the Companions.

I was lucky enough to get to write about the true and beautiful perfection of Mary Tamm's Romana I <3 (As documented visually in this vid, which I made to say thank you to [personal profile] shinyjenni for her editing and encouragement, and to express the overflow of Romana love I had after watching The Key To Time twice through.) It's been about a year and a half since I actually wrote it (!) and I can't quite bring myself to go back and look at it ever again because oh god /o\ BUT it's called 'What Has Romana Ever Done For Us?' and if nothing else I am pleased with the title.

Many thanks to [personal profile] calapine for letting me have words in her book! :-D
