In case of emergency, my contact information, photos, description, next of kin, etc. are given in this entry dated 1999/01/01. This journal entry is currently on my "Dearest" filter. I hereby give full and complete permission for any LiveJournal user on that filter and/or any LiveJournal administrator to access and use this information to ensure my safety or search for me if I am missing. Please see this entry for why I've done this.

If you're looking for background information about anything I've posted, it's probably contained in this paragraph:

My legal name is Rose Jasper Fox. It's not the name I was born with, though my first name has always been Rose. Depending on what time of day you catch me, I'm a book reviews editor and blogger for Publishers Weekly (handling reviews of science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, and erotica titles), a cook, a craftsperson, a dancer, a puzzle addict, a convention organizer, and a voracious and extremely picky reader. My father is a British-born atheist science fiction writer, journalist, and inventor living in Arizona, and my mother is a Connecticut-born Jewish author and caterer living in New York. I'm a lot like both of them. I love a lot of people. I'm queer and genderqueer. I live with my spouses, sinboy and the_xtina, in Brooklyn. We have three cats, six laptops, and about four thousand books. I have been writing about 200,000 words a year in my LJ since March 2001 and show no signs of slowing.

these terrible
conflicts are always
presenting themselves
to the artist
the eternal struggle
between art and life archy
is something fierce
my what a dramatic life i have lived
one moment up the next
moment down again
but always gay archy always gay
and always the lady too
in spite of hell
--Mehitabel the cat, via Don Marquis
