Two new anthologies

I edited and co-edited, respectively, two new anthologies that came out in March from my press, Upper Rubber Boot Books: How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens and Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up To No Good (with H. L. Nelson).

How to Live on Other Planets and other news

Since my last update, the whirlwind has continued: I got to spend an amazing eight days in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, two of them with my sister and four of them at a work conference (one of the doctors I admin assist was President of the national organization holding the conference – nothing at all […]

The Glaze from Breaking is a reprint of the […]

The hundred hidden chickadees

“Larix laracina Anaphora” was just accepted for The Southern Poetry Anthology, Volume VI: Tennessee (Texas Review Press, 2013)! Also! My short story “Facial Deficits” just appeared in PANK 6. I’m unusually proud (some would say smug) about this story, which is about a woman who gets a face transplant. It’s not one of my speculative […]

piteous recognition in fixed eyes

My cento “Whose Tongue is the Wind’s Tongue?” just appeared in the Electronica issue of Cordite Poetry Review.
