Adventures Elsewhere collects our reviews, guest posts, articles, and other content we've spread across the Internet recently! See what we've been up in our other projects. :D


➝ I was a guest with Nina Allan on The Coode Street Podcast, talking about fandom, gender, and barriers to entry. This is aimed, mostly, at entry into male-dominated fandoms/fandoms where women and non-binary participants and creators have been silenced and erased.

Ana and I released four episodes of Fangirl Happy Hour! Becoming a weekly podcast was really an accident, and actually sort of amazing given how much I've been sleeping as I adjust to allergy medications. For allergies. Which I have developed after never having allergies. Thanks, body.

  • Happy Anniversary, Inception! — we invited [twitter.com profile] ajaromano on to talk Inception with us to honor Inception on its fifth anniversary. (There's a weird crackle on this episode. One day I will become a professional and know how to fix these things.)

  • STAR-CROSSED MUTANT — we discuss Titan A.E., Giant Size X-Men #1 and the value of reviews! We do spoil several books because I overwrote the file with the spoiler warning segment, sob: City of Stairs, God's War, and The Traitor Baru Cormorant.

  • Fan Adventures — Ana's adventures to Nine Worlds and mine to John Scalzi's Memphis, TN tour stop.

  • The 2015 Hugo Awards — THE 2015 HUGOS ARE OVER PRAISE BE UPON YOU FANDOM GODS. I'm so ready to start talking about 2015 media eligible for the Hugo rather than the Hugo itself.

➝ I reviewed The Court of Fives by Kate Elliott and The End of All Things by John Scalzi for Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog. :D I'm working on a longer series of thoughts about Court of Fives.


➝ I reviewed The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle for Shiny New Books. It's one of those books I can't tell you much about. Also, it struck me as a potentially Jenny kind of book, although I think it depends on how she feels about the twist.

➝ I also reviewed Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli for SNB.

➝ Finally, because organisational adventures are important too, I arranged for YA author Non Pratt to contribute an essay to SNB. It's called Great Sexpectations, and it's all about the way sex is sold to teenagers as well as Non's attempt to write stories that deal with the reality of sex. Btw her most recent book, Remix, nails this.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
