Thalia what a great post!! and so you know, you are one of the cool kids. I read your blog all the time, but sometimes when I see so many comments posted to it I just shrug and move on to the next one on my list.

It's funny the way other people's words affect us. There is so much power just by stringing together letters in the right way...


Congrats on getting noticed by one of the "cool" kids.

But I agree with Teresa - I've always thought of your blog as beyond cool...I love your writing.

I love Philip Pullman -- now I have another author to chase down. Thank you! Thank You!
Have you also read Madeleine L'Engle? Her young adult books are great -- strong female characters, scientists & mathematicians mostly! I can't wait for my (someday) children to read these.


I think you're pretty darn cool too my friend!!! Love that poem.


Beautiful poem, Thalia. Great post. And I love those author bonds!

Sensitive Soul

Hi Thalia! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I just wanted to let you know that I answered your question about surrogacy tonight. I needed to give my backstory, so I'm glad you inquired. I've had you on my favorites" for a little bit now. Funny that. I read you too!


A great post Thalia and a beautiful poem. There are so many books and writings that touch our heart and what a wonderful way to find like minded souls.

You are so right in your musings about the "Vagina Posse". They are inspirational in so many ways.


Huzzah for Thalia! I love fantasy fictio and desperately needed another good author to read. I've just requested several DWJ books from my library, via the beautiful online system.

Have you ever read any of Robin McKinley's books? She's classified as young adult fiction as well; I've been reading her since I was 16. You might really like her. My favorites of hers are Sunschine, Beauty and The Outlaws of Sherwood Forest. Let me know if you try any of them...I love to discuss!


Chiming in w. everyone else, here. You're definitely one of the cool kids. I'd be honored to sit at your lunch table any day!


I was completely transfixed by The Golden Compass. I've been meaning to read the rest of the series but, like so many things, have not gotten around to it. But now I have a new author to look up! She sounds wonderful. I wonder if I'll be able to track down the books in Canada.
I love reading the blogs of the 'vets' too...but it's easy to feel like an incoherent bumbling neophyte in comparison (I mean me, not you...your blog is a great read).


Ditto above- great post, cool kid!


Hi Thalia, I am a long time lurker on your blog as well as the blogs you mentioned in your post. I have to agree with the other comments . . . yours is just as wonderful as those others (and they are wonderful indeed). Thanks for the entry on Diana Wynne Jones. I read a friend's copy of Howl's Moving Castle years ago and loved it but never read anything she wrote. I just hit my local bookstore and picked up The Homeward Bounders. I am now looking forward to some offline reading tonight!
