This week my mom joins me to talk about middle-aged women protagonists in fantasy and science fiction. With especial focus on Bujold's Cordelia and Ista, we talk about the value of competence, and hooking readers without a coming-of-age story.
Bonus references to the romance genre, Eifelheim, and Ancillary Justice, plus I begin to question whether I've come of age.
The amazing art which inspired me to actually get this project off the ground was created by@etrandem
