New Novella at Clarkesworld!

So, I got the best Christmas present ever when, a few days before Christmas, I got the news that Clarkesworld Magazine would be publishing my first ever novella. 'Philia, Eros, Storge Agape, Pragma' is the prequel / sequel to my Locus recommended novelette, 'The Sun From Both Sides', about war, forgiveness and all the loves … Continue reading New Novella at Clarkesworld!

The Official NOC #CrossLines Reading List

This has been up since May and I had no idea my book was on such a great list. Seriously, the company I’m keeping is far above my station. It also happens to be a kick-ass list for fiction by and about people of colour.

My only quibble is the link to my book leads to someone else’s book instead of mine. You can find mine here, or you can just click the link right here on my blog. You know, if you still care and all, seeing as this was posted in May and we’re in November. But some of you have Christmas presents to get right? Well, here’s a list full of good options. Go have fun with it!

The Nerds of Color

This past weekend in Washington DC, the Smithsonian’s historic Arts & Industries building was home to the most important gathering of artists you have ever seen. The CrossLines pop-up culture lab on intersectionality brought together over 40 artists and scholars to explore race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, disability, etc.

I was fortunate enough to be invited and helped organize a Reading Lounge and live podcasts — while artist Matt Huynh painted a mural in real time the entire weekend. One of the questions I got asked the most was about the books we included, so after the jump you can find a complete list of books we had in the Lounge!

A Few Good Women…

Earlier this year, Barnes and Noble did a great article featuring 7 speculative fiction books that feature strong female characters. Is it exhaustive? By no means. But it has a nice mix of modern and classic and also had the good sense to include the queen of Caribbean speculative fiction, Nalo Hopkinson. Seriously, if you … Continue reading A Few Good Women…

SciFi From Around The World

There's a cool article in the Guardian today for anyone looking for links so they can start reading scifi that isn't default American/English. Scifi from all corners of the globe has always been around, but recently some of those works have been hitting the mainstream, culminating in this year's Hugo Awards, where the Chinese novel, The Three-Body … Continue reading SciFi From Around The World
