Linking this excellent bit of discussion about the ending of Neoreaction a Basilisk seems apropos to start. Not everything observed there was conscious, but it's all entirely consistent with my thinking, and is some of what I want to pick at with the TERFs essay. More broadly, one of the points I circle around in Neoreaction a Basilisk is that the way forward (even if toward the eschaton) comes through conceptualizing the idea of the erotic.
In line with this goal, then, it is my pleasure to introduce Eruditorum Press's new sex and gender columnists, Daniel Harper and Shana Wolstein. You may already know them as the brains behind the Oi! Spaceman podcast, which I believe Jack Graham is officially dating. (The podcast itself, as I understand it, though I try not to pry.) I've also done a guest turn on it, and I'm pretty sure loads of other Eruditorum Press regulars have - they're great, brilliant folks, and if you've not listened to them, well, you're in for a treat. (And we'll be running announcements of new Oi! Spaceman content going forward, so.) And you certainly know Daniel from his excellent post on Tivolians last year.
But in addition to podcasting, they'll be writing actual essay-stuff for us every Friday going forward. I don't want to speak too much about what to expect from them, not least because I really want them to make the slot their own as much as Jack, Jane, and Josh (OK, I admit it, Daneil and Shana are shameless diversity hires) have theirs. But I will say that I brought them on board because I think they will write about sex and gender the way Eruditorum Press's vision demands - as something pregnant with strange possibilities and terrors. And to begin in that mission, Daniel will be along in literally just a minute with a piece on the Fourth Doctor, Leela, and kink relationships.
(And to answer the very obvious question, Last War in Albion will be switching to posting chapters in their entirety as opposed to attempting weekly serialization.)Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
