Stuff! Coming! Soon!
The Con or Bust auction, sponsored by the Carl Brandon Society as a partial response to Racefail, and intended to help fans of color attend SFF conventions that they might otherwise forego for fear of a) being unwelcome, and b) being expensively unwelcomed. People are much more likely to take a chance on something iffy if doing so won’t mean falling short on the rent, right? So Con or Bust addresses this. And to help, I’ve got an ARC of The Killing Moon up for bid, and there will be lots of other cool things going up too — check out the whole community! Now, auctions don’t begin for two more weeks. So mark your calendars!
Another thing forthcoming: DOOOOOOOM.
Well, not really. Just dystopia. A story of mine, “Valedictorian”, will be appearing in the YA dystopian anthology After, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. The anth is due out in October, and will feature stories by a whole bunch of people I really, really like!
