A good samaritan found this cat today in a gutter by Clark Park, half dead. He is now at the Cat Doctor with a body temperature of 90 (normal is 102) and blood PCV of 8. The Cat Doctor housecat, Diamond, is currently donating blood to save his life. During the exam, the vet found that this cat has a microchip. When called, his "owners" reported that he was acting sick, so they put him outside. If this makes you as angry as it makes us, please channel your anger in one of two ways: visit our website at and make a donation to help us pay for his care, or share this post and encourage others to do so.

Mary Shelley in fiction?

So, I've been strongly tempted to propose a FOGcon panel based on my glee at the fact that our "ghost of honor", Mary Shelley, is actually a canonical Doctor Who companion. However, as a premise for a panel, it's a bit thin. I'm not sure there's much to say beyond, "Yeah, it's totally the Doctor's fault that Frankenstein got written," and "You haven't heard Big Finish? Dude, you've got to hear Big Finish?"*

However, one could make the panel idea a bit more broad-based by looking at fictional portrayals of Mary Shelley in general. Except I don't actually know of any beyond the aforementioned Doctor Who audios. So, help me, internets - have you read, watched, or listened to other fiction featuring Mary Shelley?

*I could propose a panel on "Audio drama as an under-appreciated art form in America." Do you think it would draw more audience members than panelists?
