Jim Hines seems like a nice guy. I'm not yet certain that his writing style totally meshes with my reading style, but he seems to be trying in Real Life to "get" my gender and I really appreciate that. So I can happily recommend Jim Hines' experiment to recreate sci-fi/fantasy covers and learning that, no, those Grrl Power! poses aren't particularly "natural" or "comfortable" for everyone. Thank, Jim Hines, I thought that was pretty awesome of you. And thank you, Ils, for your demonstration, too!
