Would anyone be interested in betaing something for me? It's a Steve/Peggy AU, about 12,500 words, some canon-typical violence. I just want to be sure there are no egregious plot holes and that the voice/characterisation rings true.

I am back in the States and only mildly jetlagged, after a brief delay courtesy of the flooding of an air traffic control tower in Canada and the usual encounter with the incredibly rude US Border Patrol agents. (I understand that they're required to satisfy themselves that I'm not a nefarious criminal, and that it must be a tedious and repetitive job, but let me put it this way: whenever I walk up to the booth when entering Ireland or France and say "Hi, how are you"/"Bonjour, monsieur/madame", I get a response other than a grunt or silence. And that's the least of the issue.) It's always a little bit of a shock to the system to go from Ireland's milder summers and late-setting sun to North America's heat and earlier darkness, but so it goes.

72. Our Nig - Harriet E Wilson ) Frustrating and structurally unsatisfying, but a sometimes interesting perspective on discrimination against free blacks in the supposedly-enlightened North of the US.


73. Enough Space for Everyone Else - ed. JN Monk ) A thoroughly satisfying collection of space opera short stories in graphic novel form, telling stories that aren't just about strong-jawed imperialist white dudes.


74. Ruth Hall - Fanny Fern ) Enjoyable enough in itself, but as, essentially, autobiography it's vicious and satisfying.


75. The Battle of the Sexes in Science Fiction - Justine Larbalestier ) Fascinating look at early science fiction, both the stories and the community around it; I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in both feminism and science fiction, and I'm only sorry I took so long to read it!


76. A College of Magics - Caroline Stevermer ) Kind of an odd story, sometimes frustrating, but definitely worth my persevering with.


10 Thorndyke novels - R Austin Freeman ) I cannot ignore the dubious bits, but I do still really enjoy these.


81. The Golem and the Djinni - Helene Wecker ) Complex and interesting and very human, even though it's about people who don't officially fit the description.


82. The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal - KJ Charles ) I can see why Charles is so popular, but at least based on this book, I don't think she's for me. Alas.


83. Death by Silver - Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold ) If you're looking for speculative fiction with gay detectives, I'd vote for this one over the previous!


84. The Girl with all the Gifts - M Carey ) Definitely interesting and, I think, good, but I could really take it or leave it.


85. The Ghost Bride - Yangsze Choo ) Surprisingly good for a random pick-up from a library shelf!


86. A Scholar of Magics - Caroline Stevermer ) Magical Oxbridge (sort of)! This was fun.


87. Sorcery and Cecelia - Patricia C Wrede and Caroline Stevermer ) Fabulous Regency entertainment, and I'm looking forward to the sequels.


88. Point of Hopes - Melissa Scott and Lisa A Barnett ) A satisfying fantasy adventure story with some really intriguing worldbuilding.


89. Among the Believers - VS Naipaul ) There is definitely scope for someone to write an interesting book about majority-Islamic countries, but it should probably be someone who doesn't have a reflexive dislike of the religion.


90. The Marshal's Lover - Jo Graham ) Fun historical adventures.


93. A Year of Biblical Womanhood - Rachel Held Evans ) In conclusion: Held Evans is a good writer, and this is well worth a look for anyone with an interest in what it actually means to live "by the Bible". Also, it's frequently very funny.


97. Raven Stratagem - Yoon Ha Lee ) Eagerly awaiting the final part of the trilogy!


99. The Saltmarsh Murders - Gladys Mitchell ) A very weird Golden Age series; I had a proper love-hate thing with it, and I still can't decide whether I want to try another one.

It's been an odd week in several ways: sitting in a Jamie Oliver chain restaurant late at night chatting with a monk about how one of his brethren has abandoned the order and become a key figure in the Lagos Mafia; having an argument with an airport security officer as to whether solid deodorant is a solid or a liquid (look, if something's classed as a liquid because "it smears, madame", we start getting into troubling existential questions about the nature of crayons); spending far too much time in both an addiction rehabilitation centre and a place that sells clothing exclusively for mothers of the bride/groom (in both instances tagging along against my will); and helping doing renovation work on an ancient shed full of long-forgotten family stuff which inspires sayings like "Why did someone decide to store old tinsel inside a butter churn?"

Time off: so rarely actually restful.

Anyway, now I am on a train to the west of Ireland, and the wonders of modern technology allow me to type up and post this entry as we zip over the Shannon. Hurrah for the future.
