#FeministSF twitter interview Sunday April 29 11 am/2 pm

Tomorrow at 2 pm EST/11 am PST I'll be doing a Twitter interview with @traciewelser using the hashtag #FeministSF. These things usually last for about an hour.

I hope some of you will join me and bring questions. (It'll be an interesting challenge answering them in 140 characters.) If you do, use an app like Tweetchat. It's free, it adds the hashtag for you automatically, and its response time is faster than most apps such as Hootsuite and Tweetdeck.

For those of you with a serious interest in my work and how it relates to the wider world of feminist SF, you might find it worthwhile to read some of the following.

First, archives of two online book discussion of Ammonite by the listserv fem-sf:
Fem-sf book discussion, 1998
Fem-sf book discussion, 2004

And then some essays and blog pieces I've written in the last few years with direct bearing on my science fiction:

Hard SF and Soft (or, Girls vs. Boys)
A short, rant-like blog post on the gendered nature of SF classification and marketing

Elves and Anglo-Saxons and Gender
Exactly what it sounds like: a post exploring the gender of elves through time

War Machine, Time Machine
Co-written with Kelley Eskridge (my partner, and author of New York Times Notable novel Solitaire), an essay about our lives as writers, with some words about essentialism and its silliness

Layered Cities
A relaxed consideration of Slow River and cities

But you don't need to have read any of this to come and play tomorrow. See you then.
