News, News, News

Today is a news day!

1. I have a story in Wilful Impropriety, a Kathy Sedia anthology of YA Victorian fiction featuring some amazing TOC-mates! My story, “The Dancing Master,” follows a young woman’s preparation for her first Season, and actual quotes from Victorian etiquette manuals that dispel any mystery about how hard the Victorian era wanted to stifle its ladies, because YIKES. (More on this later.)

2. Speaking of YA, I have a story in Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling’s After (full TOC well worth looking over, I lucked out again in the TOC)! “The Segment” is about how the evening news gets made, and features a bear suit. (As happens.)

3. Thirdly, I am among some excellent company on this year’s Locus Recommended Reading List for both Mechanique and “The Sandal-Bride”. I’m honored and pleased.

There will be more catching up next week, especially a very belated return of Alan Alda, and with any luck, I’ll be talking about a very special Harry Potter knockoff. (Hoo boy.)

    Rococo remodeled

    These Regency garments were made from elder 18th century silks, probably grander Rococo dresses remodeled to fit the new and slimmer style. Whereas the Regency fashion often sported thinner silks and cottons, the 18th century silks were still seen as precious and beautiful, and lucky be the young woman who inherited enough to make a stylish, modern-day dress out of it!

    • Pink gown: 1800-1810, made of a silk brocade from the late 18th century. OK-dep-01040
    • Coat: 1800-1805, made of a Spitafield silk from 1746. OK-05678
    • Blue gown: 1820-25, made of a silk from the mid 18th century. OK-07407

    All garments from The National Museum in Oslo
