And … short story sale!

My short magic realist story “Teffeu: A Book from the Library at Taarona” will appear in Strange Horizons. HURRAY! This story is about multilingualism, language study, and language loss.

Held Close in Syllables of Light: the official announcement.

  “Held Close in Syllables of Light,”  my clockpunk novelette set in Birdverse, just went live at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. It features three queer characters, secondary world Jews, automata, magic, and a curious mechanical box.  It is a part of my novel in progress, The Earthkeepers. Incoherent babblings about the novelette are at my livejournal

“A Mother Goes Between” is up

My story “A Mother Goes Between” is up at the new, online incarnation of Jabberwocky (Jabberwocky 6). It is a difficult and triggery story, but one I love very much, and I’m happy that Erzebet and Sean gave it a home. I’d love to hear what you think.
