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.

    I’m not sure if you knew this, but we, the fans, think you’re adorable when you go into nerd rave mode.

    Oh dear. You might want to get Anna on the comments Phil, I posted this and then it said the site couldn’t be reached or something (definitely no fault on my end), now I’m having to retype it all. Oh well, only a short comment.

    I’m a Doctor Who fan, totally uncultured and basically clueless about the rest of your work (I still read some of it, though). So yes, that would be great. I was wondering, though: when it comes to the Capadi Eruditorum posts, are they going straight to the book version, or on here first? I’ll probably buy the book version either way, but it would be nice to have a chance to comment, too (I wasn’t aware of the blog’s existence when the old ones were posted).

    And Jane’s on holiday? A nice little island somewhere? I’m going to have to find a new way to get my LOST fix, then.

    I started From Hell after this post, and I feel my readership of Eruditorum is aiding my appreciation of it massively.

    It really doesn’t seem like anything other than From Hell could have won the Last Tournament in Albion. Some other tournament with the same works, probably not. But it’s the right win for LWIA.

    Some other method of seeding next year could be interesting. Perhaps declare From Hell and Moore the reigning champions, then give Gaiman, Morrison, Gillen, and Ellis each their own division.

    I think I’ve already re-read the WicDiv 18 preview pages a half-dozen times, I don’t work tomorrow so I may see if I can stay awake long enough for Comixology to release the issue in the morning. (A lack of suitable attire kept me from getting tickets to the Spring Formal, but I’m looking forward to talking to Gillen at ECCC this weekend.)

      Well, something I’ve ever heard of could’ve won.

    The Doom Patrol V All-Star Superman first rounder was the brutal one for me. I’m willing to concede that DP lost purely on basic familiarity

    It seems to me that apart from the site’s Doctor Who bias The Doctor’s Wife also had the advantage of been consumed by more people in a relatively short period than anything else in the competition (Watchmen may beat it over the long run and possibly American Gods)

      If I had to guess, I think the whole familiarity issue skewed the non-comics division a fair bit. A quick count shows I’ve read 43 of the 48 entries in the comics divisions, but only 8 of the non-comics entries; and 3 of those only since the tourney started.

      For the record, the 5 I haven’t read: Big Dave (relatively hard to get, and I’m very not a Millar fan); FreakAngels (somewhere on my “I really, really should” list); Ministry of Space (not sure how I missed this, I thought I had but looking up the covers I don’t recall it); Three (predates my interest in Gillen; I need to track it down along with more of his Marvel stuff); and Lost Girls (I’ve actually seen some of the early parts of this; my enormous respect for the craft fails to overcome my disinterest (not distaste) in the subject matter.)
