Updates and Thank Yous

A few quick notes:

* I'm happy to say that The Philosophy of Joss Whedon (University Press of Kentucky, 2011), which includes my essay "‘Just Get Us a Little Further’: Liberty and the Frontier in Firefly and Serenity," is a finalist for the 2012 Long Mr. Pointy Award, an award given by the Whedon Studies Association for the year's best long work of scholarship on a Whedon-related topic. Yay!

* Thanks to MuggleNet and The Leaky Cauldron for helping spread the word about my Hogwarts 101 summer course!






* My latest unabridged narration for StarShipSofa, which is the first half of Kate Wilhelm's novella The Bird Cage, is now available to stream or download on the newest episode of the podcast. If you listen, I hope you enjoy. (A full list of links to my unabridged dramatic readings is here.)


Most of all, Virginia and I offer a heartfelt THANK YOU! to everyone who sent good wishes for her recovery. She's under treatment and working hard to get well soon. Here she is, ready for her closeup as always:

Virginia, taking it easy

Oh, thanks so much! *hugs you and Lacey* As of today, it looks like she will indeed need another operation, but this one should do the trick. *fingers crossed*

I couldn't stop thinking about the Train song when I saw the icon.

Ha! That's sort of her unofficial theme song. I think the line "She wants to be the queen" resonates with her. LOL!

She sounds like our pack at my mom's.

Aren't they cute? I love the two that are half-white and half-black, almost striped. She was born that way! :D

Looks like she's going to have to have another operation, but this one should do the trick. *fingers crossed*

Get well Real Soon Now, Virginia! I was out of the country & away from LJ last week, so don't know what's going on -- but any problem for your girl is a concern for me.

Can't wait to sync the Pod for that new Kate Wilhelm!

Every time I see a Boston Terrier I think of Virginia, truly a lovely lady if there ever was one. Best wishes for a full recovery for her!
