What I Wrote: Harlots, Handmaids, Radium, and Dancing
There’s something to be said for Peak TV. Sure, my TV backlog is getting embarrassing and I keep maxing out the number of hours on my recorder and having to watch very strange collections of old episodes in a row trying to juggle the tone shifts in seven shows at once, but man, I’ve been watching some good TV. (I’m also watching Reign.) Here’s where I’ve been recently, and what I’ve been writing about.   First up: THE HANDMAID’S TALE. It’s clearly a show that was expecting to be a… Read more »
Beauty and the Beast
Well, the live-action Disney Beauty and the Beast remake has come out! And it turns out, I must have been waiting my whole life for this day, because all of March was basically me being unable to shut up about Beauty and the Beast in any form, for several reasons. First up was the official review for Ars Technica; I had made a reference to “Something There That Wasn’t There Before,” but I appreciate that the actual headline makes no bones about my overall feelings. There are some bright spots… Read more »
What I Wrote: The Year So Far Edition
My first real blog post of the year, and it’s already spring! You can tell from the ice-crusted snow outside. (Weather notwithstanding, I honestly can’t believe it’s mid-March already; it’s been a…well, it’s been a year.) Here’s some of the recent stuff I’ve been doing.   The Locus annual Recommended Reading List is up! It always has some great things on it. This year they were kind enough to include ICON, “Everyone from Themis Sends Letters Home,” and “La beauté sans vertu.”   I wrote a piece at Legacy.com, I… Read more »
Another Year
Well, this was a hell of a year. 2016 was illuminating on all levels. [I had some specifics here, but I erased them for being too personal. My reticence to talk about myself was definitely one of the things this year illuminated! And yet, here we are.] For that reason, I also find it hard to talk about how grateful I am for the people who read my stuff. I don’t tend to talk about it, because that means acknowledging feelings and if there is one thing my social media… Read more »
"Themis," Starlit Wood, & Other Things I Wrote
I wrote some fiction recently! We’ll start from the top. First, I’m very happy to have a novelette in Clarkesworld’s tenth anniversary issue! “Everyone from Themis Sends Letters Home” is a story about systems of power, also bread. (Also, generally speaking, don’t name your first settlement on a new planet after the personification of long habit, social stasis, and rightful order. That’s asking for trouble.) Second, my story “Familiaris” is in The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales! It’s based on a very interesting Bavarian fairy tale that is extremely concerned… Read more »
Attack on Titan
The Attack on Titan anthology is out today! I was thrilled to be able to participate in this project, which features short stories (including “An Illustrated Guide to the Glorious Walled Cities”) that take place in the wider world of Attack on Titan. The official description: “The manga megahit Attack on Titan, reinterpreted by some of comics’ top talent! Featuring original stories by a long roster of comic superstars such as Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Faith Erin Hicks, Michael Avon Oeming, Paolo Rivera, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr! This unprecedented,… Read more »
