It’s with great pleasure I can say that the Queers Destroy Science Fiction issue of Lightspeed Magazine is available NOW.
“Even in science fiction, supposedly the genre of limitless possibility, where everyone is invited to the adventure, heterosexual, heteroromantic, and cisgendered are considered the default, to the extent that everything else is “deviation,” and must be eyed with suspicion. This issue contains 10 original science fiction short stories (selected by guest editor Seanan McGuire), including new stories by award-winning queer authors Amal El-Mohtar, and John Chu; 4 classic short story reprints and a novella reprint (selected by guest reprint editor Steve Berman); approx. 10,000 words of original flash fiction (selected by guest flash fiction editor Sigrid Ellis); 7 nonfiction articles (selected by guest nonfiction editor Mark Oshiro); approx. 30 personal essays about the experience reading and writing science fiction as a queer person (selected by managing editor Wendy N. Wagner); original artwork (selected by and featuring a cover by guest art director Elizabeth Leggett); and more!”
Look at it! It’s awesome! Loooooooooook!
All my thanks to John Joseph Adams and the staff at Lightspeed for making this a thing that happens. Especial thanks to guest editor Seanan McGuire for including me in the project.
And my profound gratitude to all of you. You who supported the Kickstarter, who buy the magazine, who write and submit, who read and love and spread the word. You are why this all happens, you know? You do know that, right? Without you QDSF wouldn’t be real.
