I sold a short mythic poem titled “A Riddler at Market” to Uncanny Magazine. It’s short, homey, and has many food items. It’s dedicated to Delia Sherman and Ellen Kushner, and it’s a part of AoE backer rewards. Very happy about this!

Birdverse: Grandmother’s Cloth is out

My Birdverse novelette “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” is out at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. This story has queer families (a cultural default for Khana women), and striving for acceptance within the family; it has generations of women and trans people, and friendships, and autism, and very many bonus carpets. It takes place in the south, and

Joy and joy again

Today’s mail included a hefty package from PM Press. Inside was my contributor’s copy of Sisters of the Revolution, edited by Ann and Jeff Vandermeer.

Story sale to Journal of Unlikely Academia

When Unlikely Story first announced their “Journal of Unlikely Academia” issue, I thought it would great to write for it. But I could not write anything until I read Amal El-Mohtar’s wonderful short story “Pockets,” in Uncanny Magazine. Warda, a music librarian, is one of the characters. When I talked to Amal about this story,

Patreon and Publication Rights

This discussion started on Twitter, and I am moving it here because I feel this is a developing and gray area of publishing. Question is: are locked works posted on Patreon for pay considered published? Responses from SFWA-qualifying markets, from 2014, are collated here.

Ten years

Ten years. A decade. A life. Alan Dundes was the first person – and the only mentor I’ve had – who saw me as a whole human being. In him, I had someone who accepted me as I was, who was interested in me as myself, not a construct in his mind. He made me
