and author interview
Rather than linking to individual stories and essays, I'd like to simply direct you all to the latest issue of Uncanny Magazine
. I've thoroughly enjoyed everything in it so far, in particular E Lily Yu's short story and Natalie Luhrs' column.
Two tables of contents for what look to be excellent anthologies:To Shape the Dark (ed. Athena Andreadis)
.Apex Book of World SF 4 (ed. Mahvesh Murad)
Here are two great Storifies on dealing with rejection, from authors Nalo Hopkinson
and Elizabeth Bear, Rachel Manija Brown, Aliette de Bodard, Tobias Buckell, John Chu, Shveta Thakrar, Beth Bernobich, Jeremiah Tolbert and others
. Rochita Loenen-Ruiz made both Storifies.
Rochita Loenen-Ruiz has revamped her books blog. The first post is a guest post by editor Didi Chanoch, talking about a new press he's launching
This is a great interview with Aliette de Bodard
I really appreciated this column
by Renay about gatekeeping, fannish history and the SF 'canon'.
I also appreciated this interview
with Kate Elliott.
I also loved Athena Andreadis' thoughts on Mad Max: Fury Road
More on Fury Road
: No Award's guide to Australian slang
. That blog is a national treasure.
I hope you are all feeling wonderful.
