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 Robin Bland. 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, Daniel and Robin 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.)
