There’s a contest at Fantasy Literature to harness the power of teamwork to come up with every possible urban fantasy cliche possible. Personally, I think it will be non-trivial to even come up with anything not covered in the intro paragraphs, but it’s worth a try.

I’ve written plenty of posts about HP Lovecraft, so it only seemed, appropriate to make a nod, today, to Ada Lovelace. the world’s first computer programmer. It’s sort of literary, too, since Ada was the only daughter that Lord Byron managed to have in wedlock. They never really met, but if not for Ada’s mother encouraging her daughter’s interest in math and science in an attempt to steer her away from her whackjob father’s peculiar tendencies, none of us would be using the internet today!
