    But it took two men to spell Millennial Women.

    Back cover. I am debating with myself on the exact meaning of the Publishers Weekly blurb.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Can’t be a millennial woman, she’s not glued to her cell phone.

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    So there IS a Mrs Tickle!

  4. Tom Noir Says:

    Oh my god, she like, can’t even.

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    Tries to figure out how the voting machine works. Gives up and blames older people.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    Cherry Wilder is a very convenient pen name. If the writing gig didn’t work out she already had her stripper name ready to go.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BM: Virginia Kidd isn’t bad either. If the ecdysis career doesn’t work out she’s got her gang handle ready too.

    Why sexism is stupid #83: nobody should be forced to do their Ebola research in the car park – not even on a planet under attack by giant produce.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The entire premise of this project is undercut by the obviously fashion-forward design of that spacesuit.

  10. Tor Mented Says:

    If anyone disagrees with millennial woman’s demand for a free college education, she is going to stab them with an ice pick.

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    Does she have a licence to drive a city-block?

  12. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    @BM, DSwBT: I wouldn’t want to see Virginia Kidd strip. She’s been dead for 15 years or so. Cherry Wilder’s real name was apparently Cherry Grimm and she’s been dead even longer than Virginia Kidd.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @L_L: Grim indeed, although at least she won’t have to resort to a life of crime to support herself.

  14. Bibliomancer Says:

    @LL – But I thought these “millennial women” were the young ‘uns?

  15. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    @BM, DSwBT: Don’t really want to labour the point, but Kidd was born in 1921 and “Grimm” in 1931. Up to you whether that makes them young in 1979. Hell, in 1979 *I* was still sort of young.
    Kidd was Mrs James Blish.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Looks like her big scientific discovery is orange-flavoured lollipops. I think she’s a bit behind the curve with that one.

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    @LL, Bibliomancer: If you really want to confuse people, try using ‘Generation X’ the way it was originally intended.

    And to really confuse people, try explaining that ‘Saturday Night Fever’ was based on another journalist reminiscing about East End Mods in that year.

  18. Anna T. Says:

    @DSWBT: That’s just what I thought. I mean, the spacesuit/radiation suit/weird-looking protective gear is fine enough, but not really “millennial” attire. Perhaps she lost her smartphone.

  19. Raoul Says:

    ♫ Millennial Woman,
    Get away from me
    Millennial Woman,
    Mama let me be ♫

    Guess who?

  20. Tor Mented Says:

    @Raoul: Yes.

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Is this the first time we’ve seen that particular goofy font?

    This is terribly dull. Her extra-long arm is the only interesting thing about it.

    @fred (1): That is indeed damning with faint praise. I bet the blurber was a man.

  22. THX 1138 Says:

    It’s the kind of arm that needs an extra-large glove puppet.

  23. JuanPaul Says:

    She’s a muppet!

  24. Tat Wood Says:

    What Grace Holloway did during ‘The Stolen Earth”, while still in her straightjacket.

  25. Raoul Says:

    @JuanPaul – She’s a struppet!
