PW reviewed the Mothership anthology with a shout out to yours truly, which just about made my month. They had kind words for “The Taken” one of the stories in the mosaic novel, R/evolution. I’m proud to be part of this project and amongst so many fine writers. Beyond all that though I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the stories in this anthology: 40 multicultural tales of sci fi, horror, and fantasy compiled by editors Edward Austin Hall and Bill Campbell. I’m a big fan of spec fic tomes with something for everyone, and this particular one looks to be just that. It’s out now.
I’m happy to announce that my co-editor, Steve Berman, and I have made the final selections for this year’s edition of Heiresses of Russ. It’s a great list of authors and stories. We can’t wait to present them to you all. They are:
“Harrowing Emily” by Megan Arkenberg
“Reality Girl” by Richard Bowes
“The Witch Sea” by Sara Diemer
“Saint Louis 1990” by Jewelle Gomez
“Narrative Only” by Kate Harrad
“Nightfall in the Scent Garden” by Claire Humphrey
“Elm” by Jamie Killen
“Beneath Impossible Circumstances” by Andrea Kneeland
“One True Love” by Malinda Lo
“Winter Scheming” by Brit Mandelo

“Swell of the Cicadas,” my foray into ghost stories is coming out in Prime Books’ Shades of Blue and Gray, a collection of Civil War ghost stories, due out in August 2013.
I’m very pleased to announce I’ll be co-editing the 2013 edition of Heiresses of Russ anthology, with Steve Berman next year. For Tor.com’s review of this year’s inaugural edition, check this out.
“Only Then Can I Sleep,” a short dark fantasy story about what one will do for love will be published in the upcoming anthology Love and Darker Passions out soon. I’ll update with exact publications info as soon as I can.
I’ll be reading at the International Conference for the Fantastic in the Arts on March 23rd with a group of great writers including Rebecca Rowe, Nick DiChario and Will Ludwigsen. Kelly Link and China Mieville are the author guests of honor this year so should be a great one.
And in August I have the great pleasure of reading with Jeffrey Ford at KGB Bar’s Fantastic Fiction series, curated by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel. August 15th, 8pm, KGB Bar, Manhattan.
I’ll update more as more dates are added.
World Fantasy reminded me of how much I really do enjoy a good reading -getting and giving. So without further ado and some help from the folks at Sound Cloud here’s the opening of the new mosaic novel.
Hope you enjoy.
