James Tiptree Jr. is one of the biggest influences on my current state of writing. The opportunity to tell her this passed me by before I even knew she and her amazing work existed - she took her life when I was thirteen and I had barely even discovered the SFF genre.
Therefore, a chance to write a letter to her posthumously and express what she means to me was a dream come true. Twelfth Planet Press are publishing a collection of essays entitled "Letters to Tiptree", celebrating Alice Sheldon the anniversary of her 100th birthday.
I penned an essay entitled "Ahead of her time, and lost in time: on gender, feminism, and bisexuality", and I am so very proud and excited to share that my essay will be included in the collection, to be released in August 2015.
Editors Alisa Krasnostein and Alexandra Pierce have put together a stellar collection of authors and academics, and I am so honoured to share a table of contents with many people I hold in the highest regard.
Pre-orders are available now.
"Letters to Tiptree", edited by Alisa Krasnostein and Alexandrea Pierce, including letters from:
