Just learned that today is Imbolc, a Gaelic festival for the beginning of spring! So, happy Imbolc, and here’s some news about our Spring 2015 catalogue:
- How to Live on Other Planets also has a page on Goodreads, and is available for pre-order for Amazon Kindle.
- We announced the table of contents for Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up To No Good, which includes luminaries like Joyce Carol Oates, Aimee Bender and Diane Cook. Complete list is here.
Also, as always, there’s new reading out from, and news for, Upper Rubber Boot authors since our last round-up at New Year’s!
Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days contributor Brian Evenson has translated Incidents in the Night Book 2, by French artist David B.
|Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up To No Good contributor Andrea Kneeland‘s How to Pose for Hustler is out in a month and is already getting rave reviews from Roxane Gay (“Kneeland’s remarkable, razor sharp short fictions”) and Lindsay Hunter (“It’s a how-to for people trying to be people, trying to figure out how to live despite the darkness and confused desires that are too often mistaken for light. This book is a headlamp, and it is also the darkness. I could not put it down.”).|
How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens contributor Ken Liu (who had a very, very short story in 140 And Counting) has a translation of “Folding Beijing” by Hao Jingfang in Uncanny. io9 recently discussed his translation of Cixin Liu’s The Three Body Problem.
His fellow contributor Daniel José Older‘s new book Half-Resurrection Blues was called “fresh and richly envisioned” in Publishers’ Weekly.
Finally, Sarah Pinsker‘s “Beauty and the Baby Beast” was in Daily Science Fiction.
