Ranra’s Unbalancing

My Birdverse poem “Ranra’s Unbalancing” is up at Strange Horizons. It’s about a ruler trying to save her people from disaster; also about quince seeds. For those following Birdverse, Ranra is the mythic matriarch of the Ranravan/Kekeri family (who appear in Geometries of Belonging and in my older novelette Held Close in Syllables of Light).

Two in-depth reviews of “Geometries…”, and a bonus!

My Birdverse novelette “Geometries of Belonging” has been reviewed  by Ada Hoffmann for her Autistic Book Party series and by Paige Kimble for their Unmonstering series. These are both in-depth, thoughtful engagements with the story and especially with the story’s focus on  disability,  neuroatypicality, and mental illness. I am extremely grateful to these and other reviewers

Story sale to Uncanny Magazine

I’ve signed the contract and I can announce that my new Birdverse short story, “The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar,” will appear in Uncanny Magazine. It’s the happiest story I wrote since… hm. It might just be the happiest story I’ve ever written, period. It’s about two artists and their art and a

More Birdverse reviews

A.C. Wise highlights my work and “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” in particular as a part of her Non-Binary Authors to Read feature: It is a story rich in imagery and sensory detail. It is a story about magic – who is allowed to use it, and what kind are they allowed to use. It is

Patreon updates!

I’ve switched my Patreon to monthly payments. The previous per-creation arrangement was not really working for me, as I ended up constantly worrying whether new pieces were worth charging for, and in the end, nothing felt quite worthy of posting for pay. The monthly payments feel liberating. They also give patrons more predictability – you

“Geometries of Belonging” reviewed

My new Birdverse novelette “Geometries of Belonging” has been well-received so far. As I wrote before, this is a painful and hopeful story for me; I guess it’s just generally emotionally fraught to be showing a close PoV of someone who is so conflicted, someone who has so often been on the receiving end of

Birdverse at Strange Horizons

The Strange Horizons fund drive has reached $11,000, and that means that my Birdverse worldbuilding poem, “Three Principles of Strong Building,” is up in the bonus issue – together with Shweta Narayan’s “Nettle-Stung” and “B’resheet” by Julia Burns Liberman. “Nettle-Stung” is illustrated by the poet. I love this so much. If you donate $10 or

Geometries of Belonging

My novelette “Geometries of Belonging” is out today in the BCS anniversary double issue. Content notes: the story features queer, trans, and autistic people, often in combinations. It does have D/s themes. It is decidedly NOT a queer, trans, or autism tragedy. TWs for depression, familial abuse, ableism, and misgenderings. When I started writing, those

It’s everything at once day

October is here, and new things with it! 1) Queers Destroy Horror special issue of Nightmare Magazine, edited by Wendy Wagner, is out! Unlike other Queers Destroy issues, this one includes a poetry section. That’s terrific – dark poetry has a long tradition, and I am glad to see it honored here. The poetry selection

Forthcoming: New Essay and a Birdverse Poem

I have been quite sick for a while and on top of that, moving, but I have two new things to report. First, will have a letter in Letters to Tiptree from Twelfth Planet Press; it’s about translations of feminist SF, samizdat, and more. Thrilled to see the collection – the full ToC is here.
