1: Currently Reading -- I'm currently rereading Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson. Some of the students in my Speculative Technology in Science Fiction summer class are doing their final project on it. I want to finish both this series, and the Elena Ferrante Sicily series this summer.

2: Describe the last scene you read in as few words as possible. No character names or title. -- Exploration of Mars, searching for water.

3: First book that had a major influence on you -- read to me, Alice in Wonderland gave me a sense of the absurd and of language play. And that little girls can be heroes. Read myself, the first adult books I chose on my own were the Sherlock Holmes books -- although I'm not in Sherlock fandom, I developed a lifelong love for the Victorian aesthetic -- and I blame my early love for Holmes for my doing Victorian lit in grad school.

4: Quick, you're in desperate need of a fake name. What character name do you think of first? -- Lydia Gwilt.

5: Favorite series and why. China Mieville's Bas-Lag books.

6: Public library or personal library? Personal. I never know when I'm going to have time, so library books get awkward.

7: What is the most important part of a book, in your opinion? The story.

8: Why are you reading the book you're currently reading? See #1.

9: If you were to publish a book what (besides your real name) would you use for your author name? Catherine Hahn (mother's maiden name)

10: Do you listen to music when you read? No. Either the music distracts me, or I block it out and then why did I bother.

11: What book fandom do you affiliate yourself with the most? Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. or maybe Lord Peter Wimsey.

OK, that's enough for now. The rest soon.

12: Tell one book story or memory (what you were wearing when you were reading something, someone saw you cry in public, you threw a book across the room and broke a window, etc.)
