“Seven Losses of Na Re” + a poetry review

“Seven Losses of Na Re,” my magic realist short story about Soviet Jews, was sent to subscribers of Daily Science Fiction today. It will appear on the website a week later.

And… Mythic Delirium 26 has been reviewed at Tor.com; my poem “The Journeymaker in Kestai” was among ones highlighted:

Rose Lemberg’s “The Journeymaker in Kestai” is a short but powerful piece with echoes of Orpheus — being unable to look back to see if the “he” of the poem is following, the narrator must continue their journey, knowing only that they have asked him to follow. Lemberg’s gift for poetic language is on display in lines like “I am walking, / my steps forgetting my feet […],” where words shift slightly to illuminate a sideways sort of meaning.
