The crap in the news has spent 2017 trying, tirelessly, to steal my joy. I have dug in my heels and done my best to not let it. This year I got married and finished the first draft of a book and went to a lot of protests.
I have two award-eligible stories this year:
- Watershed, Strange Horizons, September 11, 2017
- A story about estuaries, loneliness, and deciding to care. Also, an eight-foot-long pet eel.
- Two Bodies in Basting Stitch, Beneath Ceaseless Skies #227, June 8, 2017
- From officer to revolutionary to prisoner, every time Sere risks her own life she risks her wife. She left without saying goodbye.
I am also eligible for the Campbell Award! (My 2011 publication in Daily Science Fiction was before the market was SFWA qualifying.)
If you think of me when nominating and putting together 2017 lists, I would appreciate it!
