Bugger, I had no idea you were planning this, +Kelly Sue DeConnick, else I'd have made myself available to watch. Hope you had a good time doing this - I recognise the slightly confused look of somebody doing a live Hangout for the first time and not being sure what the hell's going on for the first minute or so!

I'll check this out in the morning - looking forward to it.

Hi Ms.DeConnick,

Jurors are reading for the 2013 James Tiptree Jr. Literary Award. 

As you may know, the Tiptree Award is presented annually to a work of science fiction or fantasy that explores and expands gender roles. Each year, a panel of jurors selects a winner, who receives $1000 in prize money and is brought to the convention where the award is presented. The panel also selects a "short list" of fiction to which they wish to call readers' attention.

Winning the Tiptree Award (or being included on the short list) provides authors with glory, cash, chocolate, and a lot of great publicity. Winning and short listed works are publicized by the Tiptree Award organization. We have found that many science fiction fans use the short list as a reading list throughout the year.

The aim of the Tiptree award is not to look for work that falls into some narrow definition of political correctness, but rather to seek out work that is thought-provoking, imaginative, and perhaps even infuriating. All too often, futuristic views of human roles are limited by the present world. The Tiptree Award is intended to reward those women and men who are bold enough to contemplate shifts and changes in gender roles, a fundamental aspect of any society.

The Tiptree Award welcomes anyone to recommend novels and short fiction to the jurors via the Tiptree Award Web site at http://www.tiptree.org. If books from your publishing house are recommended, we will be writing to request that you send these books to the jurors. But we also invite you to submit works published in 2012 (or earlier, if the work has not been considered by a previous jury) that you feel meet the Award's criteria.

Your Captain Marvel comic has been recommended for consideration by this year's James Tiptree Jr. Literary Award jury. Normally, I contact the publisher to have review copies sent to the jury, but the comic book industry doesn't seem to work the way other publishers do and I've been unable to get a response from your publisher. I would've tried emailing you personally, but I couldn't find an email address so I'm resorting to Google+ Is there anyway you can help facilitate this process? Please contact me or have your publisher contact me at :

If you have any other questions about the award or about eligible works, I'd be happy to answer them. You can reach me via email at xangoexu@gmail.com

Sincerely yours,

I never left the book. The 5 issues Chris and I did together worked like this: we broke the issue together according to my series outline, Chris did the first draft of the script with placeholder dialogue.  I did second draft and "final" dialogue plus one, sometimes two more drafts after editorial notes. Chris' contributions were significant -- I'm not downplaying his work (some of the best moments were his -- Monica & Carol combining their powers, for instance) but I absolutely never left the book.  If you're not digging it as is, it's as much me as Chris. 

I'm back on my own as of Enemy Within 1 for the crossover with Avengers Assemble.
