with its usual severity

Oh dear... somehow an entire week has flown by! How did that happen? I hope all is well with all of my friends. Happy Friday!

ConCarolinas was a marvelous time, one of the best con experiences I've had. The panels were very well attended (a packed room for Sherlock!), the discussions wonderful, and the fan meetup was terrific. Incidentally, the panel I moderated on the 11th Doctor Who (another well attended and fantastic time) was filmed for YouTube by Gallifrey Pirate Radio. I'll post when it goes live.

Speaking of the con, here are three new podcasts (two are new, the third is new to me) I recommend:
  • Gallifrey Pirate Radio
    Led by the fabulous Davey Beauchamp, this is Doctor Who love for both newcomers and classic Who fans alike.

  • Baker Street Babes
    Everything Arthur Conan Doyle, from the canon texts to Sherlock.

  • Rippercast
    Jonathan Menges, a roundtable of co-hosts and special guests discuss topics related to the Whitechapel Murders, Jack the Ripper, Victorian British history, and whatever else suits their fancy.

Also related to the con, here are the two forthcoming books I'm most excited to read:

Oh, how I love the Bubba Fett! ::giggles::

And may I say again: bravissima! for your story. Wonderful, wonderful, and yet again wonderful. (It is probably the most comforting story I have read in a long time -- please may it be so!)

Aw, thank you so much! That puts such a huge smile on my face. I'm so thrilled you liked it. Thank you.

Personally, I'm waiting for Rule 34 and The Children of the Sky. Both also sequels, actually.

Oooh! Both of those look excellent, as well. *makes notes*

I never did thank you for the acknowledgement of my birthday last week, before you left for ConCarolinas. It was thoughtful of you, and I appreciate it.

Aw, but of course! I hope your "new year" is off to a terrific start.

I look forward to the video of that panel. I just finished the first episode of the 5th season. It's about time I got access to the 11th Doctor! I love him so far and look forward to watching the rest of the episodes!

Yay! I'm so glad you're liking it. The episode Neil Gaiman wrote ("The Doctor's Wife") is amazing. Just stunning. I've quite liked the others, as well.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm just now catching up with LJ, lol! It was a nice one, spent with my family (including the cousins, for a change!).

Bubba Fett is awesome.
