Notes on trans themes in “Cloth…”

“Grandmother-na-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” is a Nebula nominee. As such, it is getting a lot of attention. I usually let my stories stand on their own. When this story came out, I had written brief story notes focusing on Kimi’s autism in the context of the Khana culture. Even that felt too much for me. I want

New from Birdverse: Glassmaker and Jeweler

I have a new Birdverse story out at Uncanny Magazine, and for a change, it’s not a novelette. “The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar” is a happy, hopeful story about two artists and their art, and I am very happy to share it with you. Charles Payseur reviews it at Quick Sips: And

Award Eligibility 2015

2015 has been a great year for my work. Prose-wise, I am most proud of the two Birdverse novelettes in BCS. I cannot decide which one I think is more award-worthy, but I feel “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” may win for me with a very narrow margin. NOVELETTES “Geometries of Belonging,” (Birdverse novelette), Beneath Ceaseless

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

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

“The Shapes of Us, Translucent to your Eye”

When the Unlikely Academia call came out, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write anything at all. I’m not very good at writing for specific calls. But then I read Amal El-Mohtar’s story Pockets, and I sat down and this story came out of me. “The Shapes of us, Translucent to your Eye” is

“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
