More destruction

I wrote an essay for the Disabled People Destroy SF project and its Kickstarter, and here it is: Malfunctioning Space Stations.

I am still quietly weirded out by this personal essay thing, where I write a professional non-bloggish thing and don’t have a veil of not-about-me around it, but all the same here it is, and it’s actually important to me, so go read it, please.

F&SF story interview

I’m back from Boston! I had a lovely time going to Readercon and writing and seeing friends and riding back and forth on the T and wandering up and down Mass Ave. I am now convinced that wandering up and down Mass Ave is a substantial part of what you do in Boston. Things are there. Also, every time you come out of the Harvard T, there is Greer Gilman, so it is written and so it must be.

But other, less eternal things are written, and you can read them! Such as this interview about my story in the July/August issue of F&SF. Interview with me! Things you might want to know! or maybe not, but there it is anyway.

I answered these interview questions in the spring, and one of the things they’re showing me now is that life moves fast. Well. I knew that. And if it’s going to move fast and smell all right while it goes, I’d better get a load of laundry in. More, much more, soon, now that I’m home for awhile.

Two pieces of writing news

  1. The issue of F&SF with my story “An Unearned Death” in it is available now! You can get it from SF Site for paper copies and subscriptions or from Weightless Books for the ebook version. Mine is the July/August issue, although they have many fine issues also available for you. There’ll be a blog post coming up on their site, so stay tuned for the links on that.
  2. Yesterday I came home from my New York trip to find that I sold a story, “Flow,” to Fireside Fiction! More word on when that comes out when we collectively know more, but I’m really proud of this one and happy to be working with Fireside for the first time.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled running around trying to get all the things done.

Out of the Woods, twice

Today you can read my latest story with Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Out of the Woods. Or, and for once I am keeping track of this appropriately, you can listen to the podcast of the same story, narrated by Folly Blaine.

This is my post-Robin Hood story that is informed by growing up with Astrid Lindgren’s Ronia the Robber’s Daughter. Go, read, enjoy!
