Foz Meadows, contributing review for A Dribble of InkI’m happy to introduce Foz Meadows, the newest contributing reviewer here at A Dribble of Ink. Foz joins Justin Landon as a contributing reviewer and will be publishing monthly reviews covering a wide range of novels. You might recognize Foz’s work from her own blog, Shattersnipe, her contributions to the Huffington Post, and her past writing here at A Dribble of Ink, including yesterday’s essay on escapism and privilege in Fantasy and Science Fiction. The Book Smugglers, in discussing their choices for the 2013 ‘Best Fan Writer’ Hugo award, described Foz as having ‘written some of the BEST blog posts and articles last year addressing sexism, racism, problematic narratives in Fandom and in YA, all in relation to SF,’ and I’m incredibly proud to bring a writer with such pedigree to A Dribble of Ink.

I was first introduced to Foz’s writing last year after recommendations from several other critics and blogging friends. Her reviews and commentary are sharp, insightful and intelligently engage with many of the important issues being discussed in the overall SFF discussion. For a proper introduction to Foz’s writing, I encourage you to check out her 2012 Year in Review. I feel that adding Foz to the team at A Dribble of Ink will continue to expand and add variety to the areas of coverage and topics of conversation covered, which, in this editor’s opinion, is a very good thing.

So, then, here’s to Foz.

    I am most pleased by this news.

    I haven’t read her writing but that’s a mighty fine hat

    It has always been my firm belief that if you’re going to wear a hat, it might as well be an interesting one.

    Looking forward to reading her stuff!

    I also agree with Carl Dusett: that is indeed a fine hat!

    An awesome addition to your awesome blog. Just read a couple of articles from her top ten in 2012, and I found myself not just respecting the logic of her opinions, but also the beauty of her writing as well. She’s truly talented.

    Has she written any novels, or even short stories?

  • Aidan Moher May 2, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Thanks, Amir. That’s what I love about Foz and her writing so much. And, as a matter of fact, she does have some fiction available: Solace & Grief and The Key to Starveldt.
