Happy Halloween month, everyone! Three small bits of belated news:
The Kickstarter for the 4th edition of "The Long List Anthology: More Stories From the Hugo Award Nomination List" is live, and closes in 5 days (on October 8). It will include “Pan-Humanism: Hope and Pragmatics”, the novelette Sara Saab and I co-wrote, which originally appeared in Clarkesworld. The Kickstarter is fully funded, but you can still back it if you want a copy of the anthology when it comes out!
That same novelette also appears in “The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirty-fifth Annual Collection”, which is now available for purchase. This is the last edition of the collection to be edited by the much-missed Gardner Dozois, and I’m really honored to be included in it.
Shelley Streeby, author of “Imagining the Future of Climate Change: Worldmaking through Science Fiction and Activism” and director of the Clarion Writing Workshop, recently posted an essay on her blog entitled “Queer Solarpunk: Imagining The Future Of Climate Change From Beirut To Appalachia To Oceanside, California”. It’s a reflection on the Solarpunk genre, and it features a lot of discussion of “Pan-Humanism” as well as two of my other stories, “Lanny Boykin Rises up Singing” and “You and Me and the Deep Dark Sea”. It’s a super fascinating read, and I’m extremely flattered that a brilliant scholar like Shelley did such a deep dive into my work. Definitely check it out!
