1. Glitter & Madness is a Kickstarter-funded anthology that I hope you will support. It’s from Lynne Thomas (of Apex Magazine) and John Klima (of Electric Velocipede) and Apex Press.

These are people who can and will get shit done. The anthology already has a fantastic, award-winning list of contributors. And the people making the book, they make books. This anthology will actually, truly come to fruition, should they make funding.

There are only a couple days left to make the $15,000 mark. And this anthology … this is an anthology that I consider to be strongly for me and mine. This is the mis-spent youth of my youth, with raves and roller derby and drugs and the queering of all edgy culture and the constant specter of AIDS lurking in the background. Safe sex and queer sex and how do you disinfect a dildo and who has the good drugs and how many times can you donate plasma a month and this wallet found at the bus stop means you don’t have to sell your coat to pay the heating bill.

Madness, yes. And glitter, and joy, and fear. This will be a good anthology. Please go check out the site, and throw a few dollars towards it.

2. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is the modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It is wonderful. I strongly encourage any and all fans to go, start at the beginning, and work your way through. It’s a highlight of my week.

3. I truly love the vibrant immediacy of gifing transformative culture. One of my current favorites is Sleeping Warrior, a Tumblr devoted to the Once Upon a Time non-canon pairing of Aurora and Mulan.
