Please Help Squash a Rumor

For Those Of You Who Read/Buy/Enjoy Stargate Atlantis Novels

Jo Graham [jo_graham] is a professional writer who has written a wonderful original series (the Numinous World books comprising Black Ships, Hand of Isis, and Stealing Fire so far. Wonderful! Go buy them. Read them!). She is also, among other things, working on a series of Stargate Atlantis novels - the Legacy Series - for Fandemonium. There is a rumor going around Gateworld's groups that she is shipping John Sheppard and Sam Carter in these. This is not the case, and she has mentioned this three times in her lj, including here where she says "John and Sam are friends. Friends. Nothing else. And Sam is very, very taken." This seems like a pretty clear and unequivocal denial of the rumor. Obviously, she would like for people to have a fair and accurate idea of what they can and cannot expect from her books, and as she does not know where the rumor started, and it does seem to rearing its head like a particularly persistent Whack-a-Mole critter, I would like to help her spread the facts. Her lj has information about her books (including some Q&A posts), some previews of her work, and discussions of what she is working on currently. If you have any interest in her stuff you should check it out.

If you happen to wander across the rumor while you are out there wandering the internetz, could you please give them the link to her journal and her refutation?

I'm a Bryn Mawr College graduate. Bryn Mawr women are very smart and tend to be quirky individualists. My husband, who attended Haverford, and has been friends with many Bryn Mawrters (including his grandmother-in-law, his mother-in-law, his wife and her friends, and his daughter) says that the only characteristics that link us all is that we are bright (sometimes frighteningly so) and we are fierce and terrible defenders of the truth. Well, Beloved Husband, this is me, in my bright and shiny armor, defending!

Steeleye Span. Good for what ails ya', capturing as it does, life with all its rough edges.

It has always been a source of great amusement to me that all four of my kids have liked their music when they were little, but as they get into high school, one by one they come to me and say, "I've known these songs forever, but I never paid much attention to what it all means before. Mommmm!!!" As my son put it "It seems they break down into two basic groups. The bloody murder songs, and the happy little f*ing songs. Some of them have both!" And then they put their favorite albums on their Christmas lists...

A Few Words from the Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.

In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.

To Know the Dark


To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.


-Wendell Berry

~~~~~~~~~~


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

-Robert Burns

~~~~~~~~~~


Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui


Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.


-Ch'ien Ch'i

~~~~~~~~~~


Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.


-Pindar

~~~~~~~~~~


Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.


-Nathalia Crane

~~~~~~~~~~


I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.


-Samuel Coleridge
