Revisiting Corus: The Woman Who Rides Like a Man

Leading up to the publication of Tamora Pierce’s 20th Tortall book, I am rereading her Tortall books. In this edition of Revisiting Corus, I’m going over the third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet, The Woman Who Rides Like A Man.

Let me start by saying: I enjoy this book. Overall, especially with everything I’ve been through with Alanna, it’s good.

That said–it’s a weird book. And it has some issues for a modern reader.

The Revival of the (Fanfiction) Author: On an Author Coming Back to Life

Rose Christo is the pen name of a mildly successful author of fantasy fiction. She also authored My Immortal, the most (in)famous fanfiction ever written. She’s planning on releasing a memoir next May telling the whole story–but Tumblr outed her before news of the book release could drop. So how does this affect where we stand with our favorite fanfiction?

Revisiting Corus: Alanna: The First Adventure

Tamora Pierce was my absolute favorite writer as a child. I don’t know if I would call her my favorite writer now, but that’s only because it’s been a very long time since I’ve done a big reread of her books. With Tempests and Slaughter, Tamora Pierce’s 20th book in the Tortall universe, debuting on February 6th after over a decade of hearing about it, I’ve decided to reread Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books in a series I’m calling Revisiting Corus.
