And here, between James Tiptree, Jr.’s “The Screwfly Solution” and “The Evening, the Morning, and the Night” by Octavia E. Butler, is my little story. This happened. This really, really

These are the Roads that Loop and Entwine me

My magic realist memoir, “These are the Roads that Loop and Entwine me” is up at the Bahamut website. Bahamut is a print journal, but my story is one of the two pieces from the inaugural issue which are also published online (the other is Alvaro Zinos-Amaro’s “The Romance of Flying on Dead Languages.”) I

The wonder of Goblin Fruit

The last day of 2014 saw the publication of the Fall issue of the ever-wonderful Goblin Fruit. The artist was a bit delayed, so I created a quick placeholder layout for the issue. The placeholder melted on the 2nd of January, to be replaced by a glorious “Winter is Sown” layout by Grant Jeffery, which

Proud

When I went to Readercon in 2013, I was asked to put down the most important line from my work on a sticker as a way of introduction. I wrote, without hesitation, “My life is described by the music of mute violins.” It is an opening to “Seven Losses of Na Re,” a magic realist

Two new poems, and the Strange Horizons fund drive

So, earlier this week, Strange Horizons published my poem “The rivers, the birchgroves, all the receding earth.” It is a very Russian poem; it is short and has hares. Each spring the rivers rose, I pushed my boat out to the drowning forest. Hares stood on tree stumps, shaking. Each to each rattled the babble

Today, my science fictional story “Stalemate” became available for free at Lackington’s. This is my second sale to Lackington’s, the first being “A City on its Tentacles” in the inaugural issue. I love this magazine. Editor Ranylt Richildis purchased “Stalemate” as a cornerstone for Issue 4. In the Introduction, she writes, Issue 4 was built

Dualities

My mythic SFnal poem “Dualities” is up in Mythic Delirium. The universal flow of prime numbers unleashed from your/my sleeves surrounds you/me in pillars of light. I/you never understood math, you/I never knew much about architecture, languages, the processing of speech into data and storysong, that wordshaping that anchored me/you in the ground. You/I navigate

Baba Yaga in July Apex

  Almost forgot to post this – but my fairly humorous poem “Baba Yaga Tries to Donate Money,” about the perils of crowdfunding, is up in July issue of Apex Magazine. A while ago I posted a draft of this poem for critique under lock on my Livejournal. Gillian commented: “And I accidentally found the
