Supergirls

I wrote about a book in female superheroes. It's completely fascinating how women have been presented through this male-fantasy-centered genre. I discovered all sorts of wonderful characters from the '40s, crime-fighting women who had secret identities, like Lady Luck and Phantom Lady.

S.F. writer gives female superheroes their due (Disappointing headline, though)

Mike didn't have money to buy image rights, but he collected many of the panels and images here:

Another local author, Trina Robbins, has also written a lot about female superheroes.

I've been getting props from the Woodhull people for my story, which makes me happy:

In other news, I'm really glad SFist Brock got picked for the Nob Hill Gazette's Eligible List, so he couldn't rag on me too hard. He says there's a single mixers event attached to this?? I am intimidated.

I got my physical version in the mail, too. No picture of me in there.
