What did I get myself into? :-)

It's official! I'm crazy. And nervous as hell.

I've agreed to an interview with Allaine on his Femslash4Fans internet radio show on Blogtalkradio.com. It's on this Thursday at 10:00 PM Eastern Time. The topic of the show is Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis femslash. Wish me, and the other authors, luck.

Here's Allaine's description of this week's show:

While the sci-fi programs "Stargate: SG-1" and "Stargate: Atlantis" may have ended their runs relatively recently, compared to some of the shows we've talked about in 2010, the femslash community for these shows is just as old and just as successful. The roots of the "Stargate" series stretch all the way back to the original motion picture released in 1994, followed by a string of three related TV spinoffs, beginning with "SG-1" in 1997. And as for the femslash, well, it didn't take long for stories to spring up pairing Samantha Carter with Janet Frasier. Even if you're not familiar with Stargate, you've probably come across Sam/Janet fics a time or two over the years. So it was only natural for that tradition to continue with "Atlantis", as fans fell in love with women like Elizabeth Weir, Teyla Emmagan, and Laura Cadman. (One can feel confident that this trend has probably already continued with the new "Stargate: Universe", especially given the fact that recurring character Camille Wray is openly gay.) We'll talk to three of these dedicated authors during tonight's show - from SG-1, "Lines in the Sand" and "Imitations" author Ocean Gazer, and new but prolific writer Dhamphir; and from Atlantis, creator of the "Time" series, Manda.
