What a great line-up! (I am really looking forward to Andrea Stewart's book.) Putting this one on my to-watch-when-I-have-a-moment list.

I've only watched 10 minutes (it's about 1 hour), and already they addressed one of my pet peeves in these things:
She doesn't feel she's writing "asian fantasy", she's simply writing "fantasy", the same way that you don't eat "chinese food" for breakfast, simply "food" :) It's others who really like to give labels to things based on the authors...
