explain three icons and three interests. Comment and I'll demand explanations for yours.She gave me:
Interests: "china miéville"; "george r. r. martin"; "steph swainston".And, well, I should've known someone would ask about dear old Fineas. Anyway, interests first. Curious that she choe the three authors, but not too hard to explain. ( China Miéville and the 'New Weird' )
Icons: "Anarchist Fineas"; "Categories" (Captain Jack quote?); "Temptation".
Edit (before posting even), any idea how hard it is to write a post with lots of well researched links when your wireless craps out every five minutes? Yeah, this is fun. The above paragraph? 40 minutes it's taken me to get this far. The connection has been mostly fine for ages, but today? *kicks PC* Please to be imagining there are more links in the above (and below), because there was meant to be.
( Steph Swainston and a book signing ). ( GRRM, board games and evil knights )
Now, those next two paragraphs? Half an hour. With many many kicks. I'm going to save a draft and reboot the machine. FFS.
Icons( Fineas - Mad scientist anarchist with a taste for dropping bombs from blimps )
( On the pointless nature of trying to define people by what they are, not who they are )
( On icon philosphy, and LJ sponsored communities )
Thursday, June 7th with a mass signing at Waterstones Piccadilly (5:30pm - 7pm) with Steph Swainston, myself, John Lambshead, Andrew Dennis, Steve Savile, Eric Brown, David Devereux, Jon Courtenay Grimwood and Robert Holdstock. tyrell is also planning to be there, jantshira / faeriecween? I know you both like Steph, pretty sure you liked Jon as well but I forget.
 Who, let's face it, should be on everyone's friends list, just because, ok? Plus, she looked damn hot in the outfit she wore to Sin City Friday night, which is an added bonus in a friend I always think. Don't believe me? Reflections and Opinion. Go read. Plus, did I mention the dinosaurs? Yeah, she plays with dino bones for a living.
ETA: TWO HOURS this post took to get online and edited for my little tags not being closed errors. Two hours. Gah!
