As I’ve become more active on Twitter, I’ve made the digital acquaintance of some pretty amazing colleagues in the SF/F writing community.
Coming soon will be interviews with:
E. E. Ottoman, author of A Matter of Disagreement (reviewed on last week’s Love in the Time of Starships), a rising star in trans romance as well as a debonair geek-about-town. E. E. took time last week to chat with me via Google. We talked about new twists on the “enemies in love” theme, favorite SF/F writers, and paths to more diverse romance in M/M and F/F romance. In the meantime, check out E. E.’s work at Less Than Three Press.
Silvia Moreno Garcia, whose short stories I first encountered in the Canadian superhero anthology Masked Mosaic and the post-colonial SF collection We See a Different Frontier. I went on to enjoy her luminous short story collection Love and Other Poisons. She works the horror end of the fantasy spectrum as editor and writes the unstable boundary where the magical and the mundane mix in unpredictable ways. Her novel Signal to Noise (magic, mixtapes, and Mexico City) will be released in March 2015 and can be pre-ordered now. An excerpt is available here.
I’m taking this opportunity to thank both of these writers for their willingness to talk with me.
