Although the first play I saw by her was A Discourse on the Wonders of the Invisible World, which takes place about ten years after the events of the Salem Witch Trails, and which, by the way, is EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED FROM A PLAY.
She is also in my WRITING GROUP–along with Ellen Kushner (The World of Swordspoint Books, Thomas the Rhymer), Delia Sherman (The Freedom Maze, The Evil Wizard Smallbone, Whitehall—also with Liz), Joel Derfner (Swish: My Quest to Become the Gayest Person Ever and What Happened Instead, Tremontaine), and Carlos Hernandez (The Assimilated Cuban’s Guide to Quantum Santeria.
More to the POINT, Liz Duffy Adams–playwright and GODDESS–also heard me saying how much I wanted a FURRY HOT WATER BOTTLE, just like they have–or used to have, no longer available now–at RESTORATION HARDWARE–and she made me THIS!
She found a FAUX FUR VEST at a thrift store, and had a friend SEW IT UP!
AND THEN SHE ADDED A HOT WATER BOTTLE! AND A PRETTY RIBBON!
AND NOW IT IS MY NEW FRIEND AND I LOVE IT AND I USED IT YESTERDAY AND IT CUDDLED TO MY FEET AND IT IS BEST AND LOVE AND BEAUTIFUL AND ALSO IT WAS MADE BY A WORLD FAMOUS PLAYWRIGHT SO THERE!
I am very lucky!!!
And and now YOU ARE LUCKY TOO, because I have told you about Whitehall (for which Liz and Delia were head writers) which is all about WOMEN OF THE RESTORATION HOT DAMN, and it is SWASHBUCKLY and WITTY and SEXY and CHARLIE TWO I LOVE YOU!!!
You’re even DOUBLY lucky, for I also mentioned Tremontaine, which, if you liked Swordspoint and Privilege of the Sword, which of course you did, YOU MUST READ IMMEDIATELY, and now the whole season one is conveniently packaged for your pleasure in a PAPERBACK BOOK published by Saga Press, available in May 2017, thank you NAVAH et al!
And even though I wrote this blog on April 1st, it is NO JOKE! So . . .
