Essay reprint, and poetry nominations

My essay  “Feminist SF/F: on Feminist Characters” was selected to be included in Speculative Fiction 2012: The Year’s Best Online Reviews & Commentary. I have not sent it to them, so this was a surprise.

My long mythic poem “Between the Mountain and the Moon” is a Rhysling Award nominee.

Finally, “Between the Mountain and the Moon” won the Strange Horizons Readers’ poll in the poetry category. In a somewhat bewildering turn of events, my pooem “The Three Immigrations” placed second.

MANY THANKS to Sonya Taaffe, who plucked these poems from slush!

One of my very favorite stories, Alex Dally MacFarlane’s “Feed Me the Bones of Our Saints,” placed third in the fiction category. Congratulations also to the ever-wonderful Michele Bannister, Gwynne Garfinkle, Sofia Samatar, and Liz Bourke for placing/winning in various categories.
