About Emma Bull

Two of Emma’s favorite childhood memories are of typing out nonsense words on her parents’ black Royal manual typewriter, and watching the neighbor mow the lawn. She went to Beloit College, where she majored in English, then moved to Minneapolis, where there are two seasons: Snow removal and road repair. (Or, as it sometimes seems, snow repair and road removal.)

After that, she moved back to her native southern California, where she would’ve driven with the top down if she’d had a convertible. She was a resident of the Republic of Bisbee (AZ) and loved it (except on the few days of the year when there was snow). And now she’s living in Tucson, Arizona, where she would ride the range if she had a pony. But she does have a great cowboy hat.

She’s written novels, screenplays, a children’s book, and short stories. She and her husband, Will Shetterly, are members of the Interstate Writers’ Workshop, aka The Scribblies. Emma and Will conduct writing workshops now and then; they’ve taught in Los Angeles, at Clarion West, the Pima Writers Workshop, and elsewhere.

Emma played guitar and sang in the Flash Girls, a goth-folk duo. She was a member of Cats Laughing, a psychedelic improv folk-jazz band that included Steven Brust, Adam Stemple, Lojo Russo, and Bill Colsher.

She is the producer for Shadow Unit, a webfiction project she shares with Elizabeth Bear, Sarah Monette, Will Shetterly, and Amanda Downum. It combines novella-length episodes of a series story with hypertext “DVD extras” and character on-line journals. Contributing writers in its eight-episode second “season” include Holly Black and Leah Bobet.

Review by: CGMullin on Jan. 5, 2012 :
It's hard to write reviews of a series like this. ALL the episodes, in ALL the books are good. I don't want to give the impression that they're all perfect. This is, basically, a TV show. It's from an alternate universe, but aimed at the general public. So all the episodes are sort of similar to one another in the way they progress. Like SVU episodes are all a lot alike, say. Except that this is a LOT better TV show than that. The characters are not only well-realized, something I said in my review of Shadow Unit One, they are the sort of people you will really care about. And the things that happen to them are highly variable. And all the DVD extras and LiveJournal entries give you perspectives which you just don't get from the ordinary episodes. Don't buy this if you haven't read the earlier volumes. Go read those. And THEN buy this.

Review by: CGMullin on Jan. 5, 2012 :
The biggest reason I continue to review this wonderful series (or TV show? or webfiction? or WHAT?) is that somebody who has not yet read Shadow Unit One might see that there are a few five-star reviews of the earlier volumes, and if they don't see a review for one of the later books, they may think it's not as good as earlier volumes.

Trust me-- these are ALL good. Read them ALL. You owe it to yourself.
