"The Future Fire" loves me: Sale and Review!

I am pleased to announce that my story "The Fear of Falling Under" has been picked by editor Djibril al-Ayad for publication in an upcoming issue of "The Future Fire".

This is the second story of mine The Future Fire has taken. Back in February 2012, "The City of Sand and Knives" was published there, with accompanying gorgeous artwork by Laura-Anca Adascalitei.

I'm happy this story has found a great home, because it is a difficult piece about survival, confusion,  and loneliness after disaster.

Also over at The Future Fire this week is a brilliant honest review of "Daughters of Icarus". Djibril was equally honest about the flaws and strength of the anthology, and says about my story "Me Myself I":
This is perhaps the most wonderfully feminist story in the volume, celebrating the importance to all women (and not only women) of companionship, sympathy, support and learning from one another.

So a big double thank you to The Future Fire for yet again having the best interests of contemporary feminist science fiction at heart.
