In this year of our weirdness, with reality bending all around us, it’s actually difficult to remember what was done and when. I don’t think I’m alone in that!
So here it is in pixels — four short stories, three of them available to read for free online, and the other in a spectacular illustrated anthology. I’m proud of them all. If you read and liked them enough to nominate them for any award, I would be honored.
La Vitesse (Fantasy short story)
in The Book of Dragons, edited by Jonathan Strahan, July 2020
Monkey Work (Science Fiction short story)
at Serial Box, April 2020
Two Watersheds (Science Fiction short story)
in Avatars Inc., edited by Ann VanderMeer, March 2020
So You Want to be a Honeypot (Fantasy short story)
in Uncanny Magazine, March-April 2020
The World Fantasy Convention starts in a few days. After years of attending cons as Alyx‘s wifely appendage, this will be my first where I’m actually on the programming.
Here’s my programming run-down:
Reading – Friday, 11:30 AM (Broadway 1)
I’m very much afraid nobody will attend, so I’m bringing chocolate as a bribe. Then if I’m alone I get to eat it myself. Win/win.
Anthropology and Archaeology panel – Saturday, 1:00 AM (City Center 2B)
With Meg Turville-Heitz, Mari Ness, Shauna Roberts, Rosemary Smith
This topic fascinates me like no other. My fellow panelists are charming and knowledgeable. I’ll be the fangirl among them.
Food Fantasy panel – Sunday, 11:00 AM (City Center A)
I’m moderating this gorgeous dream team: Esther Friesner, Sarah Goslee, Paul Park, Fran Wilde
I’m very excited about all of this! We’ll be driving from Toronto on Wednesday, hoping to make it in plenty of time to clean up before attending the Tor kick-off party at Northshire Books.
