Science Fiction. Fantasy. Feminism.


I have a ton of exciting news waiting in the wings, but I can only share one piece of it today. The lineup for Rich Horton's The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy, 2012 has been announced, and my novella "Rampion" is going to be in it.

I'm doubly excited, because my friend Theodora Goss also has a story in the anthology called "Pug." I told my husband last night, and he said, "Hey, you guys are going to be anthology buddies!"

Dora writes these beautiful jewel-box stories that are sometimes fantasy, sometimes magic realism. When you read them, you instinctively want to read them carefully and make yourself slow down to admire the language. She has a lovely, unusual book called "The Thorn and the Blossom: A Two-Sided Love Story" coming out this January. You owe it to yourself to watch this book trailer:

The anthology also includes stories by three of my favorite authors, Kelly Link, Margo Lanagan, and Neil Gaiman (swoon). The release date hasn't been announced yet, but it will probably be sometime this summer. I'll post again as I hear more!
