Thank you for tuning in to my blog. If you’re a fan of Fantasy fiction, you’re in the right place. I investigate, devour, and live Fantasy fiction. And as I explore my bookshelves and re-read old favourites, forgotten friends, and greet new ones, I would like to invite you on the journey.

So today I’m going to post a preview of my LGBTQIA+ Fantastika symposium paper – in abstract form. You can find full details of the event… Read more
