Dual Garmenture
I have an article up at The Toast today! “‘I don’t think I’ll venture on dual garmenture': Rational Dress and the Politics of Biking” discusses pretty much what it says on the tin, including rib-crunching, satirical poetry, seltzer sponsorship, and Aesthetic Dress as the theater kids. Research for this was delightful. Above are two of my favorite political cartoons and two of my favorite advertisements on the subject, at the far ends of the cultural response to Victorian biking costume: Terror that those ladies would go getting newfangled ideas in… Read more »
Readercon and a Fiction Update
It’s Friday and I foolishly agreed to let a friend come stay with me, which means I’m screencapping Merlin: Book of Beasts in giant bursts in between desperately trying to cram all my horrible mess into a cartoon closet. Someday soon I will try cataloging some of the Musketeers’ most priceless facial expressions, but today’s not that day. Fiction update instead! First up, amid everyone’s Readercon schedules, this seems as good a time as any to mention I’ll unfortunately be missing Readercon this year due to a family obligation. The… Read more »

"The Insects of Love"
It’s alive! “The Insects of Love,” a story about sisterhood, stars, and the entomology of space-time, is available now from Tor.com. (The gorgeous cover art is the work of Tran Nguyen, who won the Spectrum for it! Clearly I’m a biased vote, but I’m so excited for her well-deserved Gold.) Before Fairuz got the tattoo, I’d never even heard of the beetles. I just knew that the tattoo she wanted was enormous, and that it would take all night, and even as I agreed to come with her I said,… Read more »
Robot Uprisings, Cabbages, and Some Dolls
April is vanishing (it’s terrifying!), and so I’ve fallen behind on news. Let’s play catch-up before Reign tomorrow, when my entire brain will fill with lace bolero jackets and wild character swings and Megan Follows nibbling scenery with careless panache. Last week, Robot Uprisings came out, co-edited by Daniel H. Wilson and John Joseph Adams, and it does what it says on the tin. My story is a road trip of questionable means entitled “Eighty Miles an Hour All the Way to Paradise,”… Read more »
"The Lion Cage" in NIGHTMARE CARNIVAL
It’s official! My story “The Lion Cage” will be appearing in NIGHTMARE CARNIVAL, a dark circus anthology edited by Ellen Datlow. The nearly-final TOC:… Read more »

Genevieve on Tumblr

  • photo from Tumblr

    This week on Reign, Lola continued to learn stinkeye from the best in the business, as her newfound determination to take no shit gives her the strength to pull a Catherine and tell Narcisse to take his own goddamn baths. (She is only planning to marry one probably-murderer in this life, and she already did that, okay? Take a number, Narcisse.)

    In the meantime, Catherine is openly hallucinating her ghost-daughters and hoping to marry her current daughter to these virginity-freaks in the red capes so her ghost-daughters don’t murder her current daughter. She’s having a week. Her stinkeye is undiminished. (x)
