Ursula Vernon
« on: February 27, 2014, 10:23:31 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
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

Nice distinction between evil and wicked. I am going to pick that one up next time I see it.

: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.
