Title: Ursula Vernon
Post by: Patti L. on February 27, 2014, 11:23:31 am
Huh.
Seems there wasn't a thread for her.
She started in art, and has branched out.
She won a Hugo for "Digger", her webcomic (now available in print either separate volumes or 4 pound omnibus edition) about a wombat, a dead god, and a shadowchild.
She has a series of young readers adventures illustrated by her about "Danny Dragonbreath".
She wrote "Nurk" about a shrew.

She has just posted this:  http://ursulav.livejournal.com/1577908.html

:D Very good review. Both in that it was positive and in that it described the book very well and eloquently. I like the reviewer's style of writing too.

I really enjoy Summer in Orcus. :) and I would dearly love to order the Halcyon Fairy Book, but the price is a bit to high for me. Including shipping it would exceed $50 :( oh well, perhaps it will become available as bits and bytes later on. *crosses fingers*

The timing information is a little strange; part 2 was out by the time this published, I've read the "sequel" or part 2 of a doorstop, "The Wonder Engine".  We find out a good bit more about both Slate and Caliban, although no more about Brenner or Learned Edmond's pasts.  Some very interesting stuff about gnoles.
