SF Signal Welcomes Ashley Crump!

Don’t look now, but we’re getting larger — and I’m still not talking about our collective waistlines.

SF Signal welcomes Ashley Crump to our ranks of wayward Irregulars!

By way of introduction (and not laziness on our part — nope, no way), we asked Ashley to talk about herself in the third person. This is what she came up with:

Ashley Crump has the requisite two black cats, but cannot seem to keep up with her broomstick. Thus, her travel is a little more limited than she’d like. She consumes science fiction and fantasy – along with renegade mystery novels – on the banks of a Louisiana bayou. Reading three or four books a week keeps her busy when she’s not teaching young minds how to manipulate the English language. She escapes to England when the stars align just right so that she can wander around London and luxuriate in the fullness of real bookstores. Maybe that’s where the broomstick is…

We’re happy to have Ashley on board to help pick up our reviewing slack.

Welcome, Ashley! Since you’re new around here, let me be the first to explain the longstanding tradition of bagelness. It’s customary in these parts that “New Irregular buys everyone else bagels”, so put down that book and make with the boiled pieces of tasty dough. I’ll have an Everything bagel, please. 😉

While Ashley is finding the nearest bagel shop — because everyone knows that the supermarket doesn’t have real bagels — check out her first review for : The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.

  1. Bagel shopping tip: when they say “want fries with that?” — I’m totally in the wrong place. *facepalm*


    …leaves a “glad to be here!” note on the refrigerator and picks up the list of orders, which I see has magically regenerated since I was last here, and goes out again to see if I can get it right this time!

  2. It’s taken me all day, but…

    …bagels for everyone! (with a few additional choices)

  3. Virtual bagels for the win! 🙂
