Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    “Because, you see, when it comes to voting? I have a plan.”

    Theme tune crashes in

      I’ve always thought it was probably the case that Battlestar Galactica should have beaten Doctor Who somewhere in there, tbh.

        I hope your plan is better than the plan the Cylons were advertised for four years as having before they turned out not really to have any plan.

      This, of course, raises the vitally important question, what is Phil’s theme music?

        I thought I’d canonically set it as Worldburners Unite.

        Well, obviously…

        “See the tower through the trees,
        give way to smoky memories:
        Worldburners Unite!”

        It’s the lyrics to World Burners Unite, set to the music of the Crazy Bus theme.

          Now I want to hear the Swanee Kazoo version.

    It’s a bit of a tangent, but it’s hard for me to think of Andy Weir as a “new writer” when I have fond memories of Casey & Andy and Cheshire Crossing. But I’m in the distinct minority there, I think.

      Huh. I’d not realized he was the person who’d done those.

      But yes, despite having been around for ages, the 2014 reprint of The Martian was his first professional sale.

      (And Cheshire Crossing was better when Alan Moore wrote it.)

        I wasn’t trying to disagree with Andy Weir both being eligible for and deserving of the Campbell award, just that it felt odd on some level thinking of him as new.

        I really do need to read Lost Girls one of these years, but it’s one of those works where my respect for the creators just never overcomes my active disinterest in the premise.
