MidAmeriCon II was a delight; it was wonderful to meet people I’d only known online and get in touch with new contacts. Thanks to Con or Bust for funding my travel and stay! Please consider supporting them so they can get more fans of color out to conventions.
Strange Horizons published my short story “Her Sacred Spirit Soars” in their July special Our Queer Planet; a podcast narrated by Anaea Lay is also available. In August, my poem “Children of the Geese” was published in Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Inquiry, and my poem “Parallax” was published in inkscrawl 10.
Star anise floats in the night-sea of meat bone tea,
backed by the cloud-flower shapes of lingusticum.
Issue 12 of Uncanny features my poem “肉骨茶 (Meat Bone Tea),” read by the wonderful Amal El-Mohtar. This poem is dedicated to Jaymee Goh, who inspired me with her friendship and delicious home-made bak kut teh. It’s the perfect treat for our upcoming fall weather.
I’ve just received the final proofs for Fitting In: Historical Accounts of Paranormal Subcultures, edited by Jeremy Zimmerman and Dawn Vogel, forthcoming from Mad Scientist Journal. The book should be available toward the end of September or early October; I’ll send order information out as soon as I have it.
I also have fiction forthcoming from Daily Science Fiction and GlitterShip, as well as a poem forthcoming from Strange Horizons—more information on those and upcoming projects as their release dates near.
