Mayara responds to “Monster Girls Don’t Cry” by Merc Rustad

Mayara responds to “Monster Girls Don’t Cry” by Merc Rustad

Mayara, the tamarin the size of a tamarind seed, brings you her response to “Monster Girls Don’t Cry” by Merc Rustad over at Uncanny Magazine. Go check it out! “Monster Girls Don’t Cry” contained a lot of what I was soul food to me when I was teen, speculative fiction with enough teeth, hope and strength. It reminded me of what Merc has said about her mission and vision when she writes stories (you can read more about that from…

Home from Atlantic Centre for the Arts, Residency 163

Home from Atlantic Centre for the Arts, Residency 163

Flying home from ACA, inking Things comics I sketched while there. So much deep work. I found new capacity as a storyteller. I was inspired by great people who I got to talk to and listen to and exist in space with. I realized, again, ways I rob myself of my own power an watched myself repeat those behaviors. Compulsions that will take time to balance. I found/remembered new ways of fun for my practice. New capacity to push into,…

Remembering Kate Yule

Remembering Kate Yule

A brain tumor took Kate Yule from us yesterday. She was/is (for the quality of character can extend beyond time) an exemplar of so much of what I love about the community of science fiction and fantasy, and why I choose SFF author over author as a label. The first time I met Kate I felt accepted, included and wrapped up in a community where squee was a normal state of being. Kate was kind, generous, lively, and infinitely curious….

End of August, Lightspeed, Uncanny, ACA, Things, oh my!

So many fantastic things! Here’s a quick roundup in the life of Liz. Lightspeed Kevin J. Anderson & Sherrilyn Kenyon rocked the Author Spotlight for “Trip Trap” in Lightspeed Magazine. I learn so much interviewing people. Uncanny Magazine Uncanny Magazine knocked it out of the park twice!
