After a few months of not much happening, I have a whole slew of releases coming out.
Brave New Love: 13 Dystopian Tales of Desire, edited by Paula Guran, includes my story “Now Purple with Love’s Wound.” It takes place in a fairly grim post-apocalyptic world, kinda dark and twisted. Fun, you know?
The new issue of Apex Magazine is out — and it includes my poem, “Caverns of Science.” That’s right, I wrote a poem. This was a strange thing that came out of the blue last summer. I haven’t really worked at writing poetry since college, but here we are. The idea needed to be a poem rather than a story, because I wanted to focus on the imagery and emotion, and a poem seemed the best way to do that.
I’ve mentioned it already but I’ll mention it again: the current issue of Lightspeed includes my first-ish steampunk story, “Harry and Marlowe and the Talisman of the Cult of Egil.” You can buy the entire issue now, and the story goes live on the site Feburary 28.
I’ve also mentioned before, After the Golden Age is out in paperback. But now I have everything that’s come out in the last few weeks in one post.
I’ve also submitted my nominations of the Hugos and Nebulas. As usual, the process demonstrates to me that I need to read a whole lot more.
