Busy time here, as in so many places, but when you have a moment to sit down you might like something to read. Friends, I am here for you.
In the very first issue of Reckoning, a magazine of environmental justice, I have a personal essay called, “How Far Are We From Minneapolis?” Reckoning also has a range of genres of fiction, poetry, and some other pieces of nonfiction than mine. I’m very excited about this new venue.
One of my stories that already appeared in Analog, “Blue Ribbon,” is now reprinted in Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction 2015, edited by Julia Rios and Alisa Krasnostein. I am delighted with how far afield Julia and Alisa read in selecting stories for this volume, looking for a broad range of speculative stories for a teen audience rather than limiting themselves to things labeled for teens. Analog doesn’t have a full online edition, so if you missed the magazine issue with my story, here’s your chance at it in a more lasting form.
