new short story, and Strange Horizons fund drive

Strange Horizons is a magazine close to my heart. My first professional sale, Kifli, appeared in Strange Horizons in 2010; they published my award-winning epic poem In the Third Cycle, as well as Between the Mountain and the Moon and The Three Immigrations.

They are currently running their annual fundraiser, and my short story Teffeu: A Book from the library at Taarona ran as a $3000 bonus content. This is about multilingualism and language loss (and bookloss), and I hope you give it a try. Even if you don’t like the story, I hope you will consider donating to support this excellent and important venue for short fiction, poetry, reviews, and commentary.

The next bonus content will be an essay titled “Recentering Science Fiction and the Fantastic: What Would a Non-Anglocentric Understanding of SF and Fantasy Look Like?” by Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay. I am very much looking forward to it! More fund drive issue content: a review by Aishwarya Subramanian, a story by Nisi Shawl, a poem by Bryan Thao Worra, a roundtable, an interview with Helen Oyeyemi (by Niall Harrison), and more. Dom Parisien’s excellent poem “I am learning to forget” ran as bonus content earlier this month.

Thank you, Strange Horizons team!
