Mermaid’s Hook can now be read over at Apex magazine. I sold this story around the time Leonard died and wrote the story just after Clarion, so the proceeds will go towards the Leonard Pung Memorial Scholarship.
It’s an honor to be part of this issue. It’s full of writers I admire AND non-fiction that mentions cosplay and fake geek girls. Yesterday I wrote about wonderful inclusive cosplay at Emerald City Comicon, today I am next to an article speaking against “fake geek girl” nonsense, celebrating casual cosplay and casual fandom. My warrior heart (a few of the memes reclaiming idiot nerd girl were created by this one) is thrilled.
