Future You

September 26, 2011

Long overdue announcements first: as of nowish, I’m co-editing the fiction section of Bull Spec alongside Natania Barron. The first two years of the magazine were a tremendous accomplishment, both as an important new genre magazine and a centerpiece for the science fiction community in North Carolina. I’ve enjoyed watching it grow and I’m honored to be a part of it now. Watch out for some big updates on the Bull Spec front in the near future, but in the meantime…

Please consider pitching in to our Year Three Kickstarter drive! There are three days to go, and every dollar counts. If the important magazine/community centerpiece stuff isn’t enough to persuade you, take a look at the rewards. Books, art, story critiques by the pros, and more. And speaking of fundraisers for badass magazines…

I think of this time of year as my “pay-what-you-want subscription renewal period,” and every year I try to remember to renew with Strange Horizons through their annual fund drive. I think of Strange Horizons as the model of what a genre magazine can aspire to be: wise, witty, and genuinely progressive, with a non-fiction section just as eclectic, challenging and imaginative as the fiction. And because (or perhaps in spite) of all that, they’ve managed to stick around for over a decade. To top it off, they’re a non-profit. So send a few bucks their way. Future You will thank you for both the excellent reading and the tax deduction. And while we’re on the topic of Future You’s wallet and reading list…

This November, Prime Books is publishing an anthology collecting the first year of Lightspeed, including my story “The Harrowers.” There are a hell of a lot of fun and thoughtful and beautiful things here, including fiction by George R.R. Martin, Alice Sola Kim, Stephen King, Charles Yu, Nancy Kress, Genevieve Valentine, Ursula K. Le Guin, and many more. I suspect Future You will want to pick it up.
