"Gravity Well", Scigentasy Issue 9, May 2015

My strange lady astronaut flash "Gravity Well" is now live at Scigentasy Magazine.

Issue 9 features myself and a story by A. Merc Rustard, "Under Wine-Bright Seas", and artwork by Jake Giddens.

"Gravity Well" is my week 5 Clarion story, and came about in a haze of exhausted hysteria, listening to Janelle Monae's song "Sally Ride", thinking about women who have lost their lives in the pursuit of space, and the narratives of death and success surrounding women in science fiction. Joanna Russ's "We Who Are About To" had a huge impact on me.

I'm delighted the story found such a great home at Scigentasy, a venue that celebrates gender diversity in science fiction.
