Two January Poems!

I’ve had two poetry publications kick off the new year:

“Trojan Road”, a poem about prophecy and priorities, leads off the January issue of Plenitude Magazine. It’s my first non-speculative poetry publication and a little milestone, all by itself.

Climbing Lightly Through Forests: A Poetry Anthology Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin is available now in ebook and for print preorder. My own “A Headful of Hair” joins work in there from a shocking competence of poets, including Stephanie Burt, Sonya Taaffe, Jo Walton, Sofia Samatar, Nisi Shawl, Reckoning teammate Hal Y. Zhang and Reckoning 5 contributors Jennifer Mace and Catherine Rockwood; Brandon O’Brien, Rachel Swirsky, Ada Hoffmann, Thoraiya Dyer, A.J. Odasso, Gwynne Garfinkle, Shweta Narayan, Lynne Sargent–and a whole stack of people whose work I haven’t met yet, and get to.

It’s a powerhouse of a book, and available both through your usual booksellers and direct from Aqueduct Press.


A Romanian Translation

One last piece of news before the end of the year!

“Three Days and Nights in Lord Darkdrake’s Hall”, which originally appeared in Strange Horizons, is appearing in translation in the December issue of Romanian SFF magazine Galaxia42.

It’s my first Romanian translation, and in great company.


The 2020 publications

It’s been an oddity of a year, but between a whole lot of hardship for everyone involved: five new publications made it through the pipeline.

Short Fiction
“La Bête” in Strange Horizons, week of March 9, 2020.
“One Hundred Tasks for Bones” in The New Decameron Project, March 17, 2020.
“The Bear Wife” in Apparition Lit, April 2020.

“The Death of the Gods” in Uncanny Magazine, January/February 2020.
“The Dream of the Wood” in Reckoning 4: creative writing on environmental justice, January 2020.

There’s a lot lined up for 2021: four more pieces going to print soon; my guest poetry editor stint at Reckoning 5, which drops in January and is full of fierce international smarts and love; and a few projects yet to be announced. I’m really looking forward to sharing this stuff, and to a better year to share it in for all of us.


New website coming soon!

It’s looking a little bare around here, but the next iteration of the website is cooking as we speak.
