Earth Cell by Charles Brass

Congratulations to Charles Brass, whose latest science fiction novel, Earth Cell, is now available in the Kindle Store and through ClearView Press. Brass and I worked on this manuscript in September of 2011. A great choice for anyone who enjoys reading about sorcery, interplanetary travel, telepathic weapons, and political conflict on an intergalactic scale. Bravo, Charles!

Trans and Genderqueer Anthology Accepting Submissions

Exciting news for all trans and genderqueer poets! Editors TC Tolbert and Tim Peterson (Trace) are collecting submissions for an anthology to be published in 2012 by EOAGH Books. The anthology aims to publish a multiplicity of voices. It is open to a wide range of poets with diverse life experiences and writing backgrounds. So if you are trans- or genderqueer-identified and you thrive on poetic expression, dust off those archives or write the piece that’s been simmering in your brain and send it in. »

Dinesh Pulandram Featured in Residential Aliens

A hearty congratulations to Dinesh Pulandram, whose short story “Evangeline Vicare” has been published in Residential Aliens: Speculative Fiction from the Seven Stars. Pulandram and I developed this story, in which a father struggles to let go of those he loves, earlier this year. Take a few minutes to read and enjoy!

Kudos

Erin edited a two hundred-page memoir for me and returned it with embedded commentary as well as the expected editing. She has an ear for voice in a piece and is able to point out places the voice changes.”
