Tove in Tokyo

I have been invited by the Finnish Institute of Japan to give a keynote lecture…

Empty Met & Heavenly Bodies

Thanks to Bertie, we headed down to hit the Met before hours to enjoy the last day of the Heavenly Bodies exhibit, then ran up to the Cloisters to see the other location. Oddly enough the medieval setting worked well with the fashion inspired by the church. And there was even a good bit of…

Sisters in Salem

Off with my gals to one of our favourite destinations this past weekend. Stories told, the lost remembered, hope restored. More pix on the ‘book and over at Instagram.

NYC, QoE and Me

Shenanigans in the city with gal pal Stephanie today. Hope to manage a few things like the Morgan medieval monsters exhibit. If you’re about give us a shout.

Skulk at Edge-Lit

Much floof so wow: books sold; pages signed; sustenance shared; friends hugged.

Wandering in the Howff today to loosen up my brain a little after some intense work on my latest essay (Celtic themes in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell). Just sent off the essay, so I though I would share some of the fruits of my wander. I’m always discovering things I hadn’t noticed before. What a…

MAMO: Rome

Good news! Just got word that my presentation ‘A Chieftain Unchosen: Examining the Raven King through Medieval Prophecy’ has been approved for MAMO: The Middle Ages in the Modern World conference, which will take place in Rome in November. Yay! One of my ulterior motives for saying no to other things is to make sure I…
