[links] "changing" urban fantasy heroines  
fiction_theory makes a really good point about IO9's The Changing Fashion of Urban Fantasy Heroines article.

Quote: Yes, what a change! Less tattoos, more body policing and worshiping of a societally approved figure! Truly, it's a revolution in the genre as we know it!

How is it that someone will dedicate time to tracking and discussing how many zepplins/dirigibles are on the covers of these books but not how many people of color, fat people, PWD, queer or trans or genderqueer people?

I also enjoy the slut bashing in comments! If you wear stilettos you're stupid and a dirty whore!

Oh fabulous. One of my plug-ins on Firefox blocks comments there unless I allow them, so I missed the comments, but am not surprised.
