From the editor and publisher of Chicks Dig Time Lords comes another geekgirl project of epic proportions! Mad Norwegian Press presents Whedonistas: A Celebration of the Worlds of Joss Whedon By the Women Who Love Them, edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Deborah Stanish.
Like Chicks Dig Time Lords did for Doctor Who, Whedonistas invited female sci-fi/fantasy writers as well as women who are active in fandom to contribute essays about their relationship to the Whedonverse. It goes on sale to the general public on March 15, 2011, but will be officially launched and available for purchase at Gallifrey One this year!
In addition to featuring exclusive interviews with Jane Espenson and Juliet Landau, the volume features essays from some of the most exciting voices in sci-fi and fantasy, including Seanan McGuire, Lyda Morehouse, Caroline Symcox, Catherynne M. Valente, Elizabeth Bear, Sarah Monette, Teresa Jusino...
That’s right—my essay, Why Joss is More Important Than His ‘Verse, is included in this tome. Something I’m more than honored by. Squeeful about, even.
While the book won’t be released until March, it can be preordered! If you’re in the process of going holiday shopping for the Browncoats in your life, look no further than this book! And you can expect to hear more from me about it in the months ahead. And while I’m on the subject of Joss Whedon, I’d just like to say: No Joss, No Buffy. Thank you.
Teresa Jusino was born the same day Skylab fell. Coincidence? She doesn’t think so. She is a freelance writer in New York City who is a regular contributor to websites like ChinaShop Magazine, Pink Raygun, and Newsarama. In addition to her geeky online scribblings, she also writes prose fiction and screenplays. Her fiction has appeared in the sci-fi magazine, Crossed Genres, and her non-fiction is being published in Whedonistas: A Celebration of the Worlds of Joss Whedon By the Women Who Love Them, to be released March 2011 by Mad Norwegian Press. Teresa is the author of a chapbook of short stories called On the Ground Floor, and she is working on a webseries called The Pack, coming in 2011.
