Announcing the Release of Speculative Fiction 2013!

cover of Speculative Fiction Online 2013I’m so excited to announce the release of the anthology, Speculative Fiction 2013: The Year’s Best Online Reviews, Essays, and Commentary.  One of my reviews is included in this collection!  Here’s a descriptive blurb from the publisher:

Speculative Fiction celebrates the best in online non-fiction – the top book reviews, essays and commentary of the year. The 2013 collection is edited by Ana Grilo and Thea James of The Book Smugglers.

Speculative Fiction 2013 collects over fifty pieces from all corners of speculative fiction fandom – from book criticism to incisive commentary on important issues like sexual harassment at conventions; from feminist themes in summer blockbusters to life-changing video games; from the merits of grittiness to the downfalls of grimdark.

I am unbelievably honored to be part of this collection for two reasons.  First of all, I never thought I’d see the day when I’d be in company like this.  Again, this list of contributors comes from the publisher, Jurassic London:

Contributors include Abigail Nussbaum, Aidan Moher, Alasdair Czyrnyj, Aliette de Bodard, Alyssa Franke, Amal El-Mohtar, Ana Silva, Ann Leckie, Annalee Newitz, Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay, Carrie Sessarego, Chaila, Chiusse, Chris Gerwel, Diane Dooley, E.M. Kokie, Emily Asher-Perrin, Erin Hoffman, Foz Meadows, Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, Jemmy, Jenny Kristine, Jim C. Hines, Joe Abercrombie, Jonathan McCalmont, Kameron Hurley, Karyn Silverman, Kate Elliott, Leow Hui Min Annabeth, Liz Bourke, Mahvesh Murad, Matt Hilliard, Miguel Rodriguez, N.K. Jemisin, Natalie Luhrs, Niall Alexander, Nina Allan, Orem Chiel, Paul (Sparky), Phoebe North, Renay, Robert Berg, Sam Keeper, Sayantani DasGupta, Shaun Duke, Sophia McDougall, Stefan Raets and Tansy Rayner Roberts.

Edited by Ana Grilo and Thea James, Foreword by Seanan McGuire, Cover by Sarah Anne Langton

This is an amazing list of writers and I encourage you to check it out!

The other reason I’m so thrilled is that all profits go to the non-profit Room to Read.  This group is dedicated to advancing literacy across the world.  Programs include building and stocking libraries, building schools, promoting girls’ education and sponsoring students, and helping schools write and publish their own, culturally appropriate, children’s books for use in school libraries and curriculums.  Please check out this wonderful group!
