SF critic james_nicoll lives to stir up his readers. Today, he asked "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Fantasy or SF?" The ensuing discussion, both serious and snarky, is most enjoyable.

Writer Madeline Ashby addresses a topic of great concern to a number of us: Periods, and how to write them. I like the cut of her jib. (Warning: very frank talk about female body functions.)
