Ever heard of editor Marcia Lucas? There’s a long, fascinating history of her life over at The Secret History of Star Wars:

Biographer Dale Pollock once wrote that Marcia was George Lucas’ “secret weapon.” Most people are aware that George Lucas was once married, and probably some are…

What do you think about all the people who don’t understand feminism? Especially the women who supposedly “are against feminism because they don’t hate men”? Should we argue or is it a lost cause?


No, we shouldn’t argue. We should teach. We should enlighten. We should in…

Educate. Don’t humiliate. This is truth. I too get impatient. But this is better.

I have been interviewing women who work in Fantasy Illustration about their lives, art and careers. It’s a goldmine of knowledge and advice both for working artists and also for aspiring illustrators and artists.

There are currently 17 different interviews, so get reading and enjoy!

You can find all of the interviews here: http://kirileonard.com/tag/women-in-fantasy-illustration/

More good stuff to read from Kiri Leonard, and of course the interviewees.

This is fantastic.

When Paul Bogard traveled the globe to research his book The End of Night, he brought his dog Luna along for the ride. Today his book comes out in paperback, and to mark the occasion, he remembers his dog:

Luna was with me every step of the way as I worked on The End of Night. One of our favorite walks was the golf course near the Minneapolis house where I grew up and where my parents still live. We’d wait until after dark, then slip through a tear in the chain-link fence for an hour or so, Luna racing across the fairways and greens as I sauntered along lost in thought. She’d come roaring past me every once in a while, checking in, then veer off back into the dark. 

When I brought her home at eight weeks I had all the time in the world, and so we spent it together. As a result, during her fifteen years she was almost never on a leash, and lived her days roaming along as her heart desired. She had an amazing life; I sometimes think that if I do nothing else well in life I will always know I gave my beautiful dog the best life I could, the best life a dog could ever want. It always makes me happy when I meet other people who are doing the same for their dogs. And what she gave me shaped my life. I miss her every day.

So proud of Paul for all his accomplishments, and so thankful that I was able to go on many treks into the woods with this lovely girl. Even if it meant sharing a seat with her in a tiny car and pulling ticks off of her (and me). (Y’all need to read this book. So good. So important.)

I love these two so much. Belle and her Beast.

Yeah just mine… Don’t worry mom. I’m with PJ & Geri. ;) (This is their fault…)
