From time to time I have burbled here about my great friend Ada Palmer. She's a Renaissance person. She composes music for Sassafrass and has recently sold four amazing SF novels (Dogs of Peace, Seven Surrenders, The Will to Battle and Perhaps the Stars) to pnh at Tor. And I have mentioned her blog Ex Urbe, and linked to it a time or two (remember the Machiavelli series?), but until just now it didn't have her name on it, for sensible professional reasons that no longer apply.
And I thought you might like to know that she now also has a new really cool website that covers the various things she does.
