Glorious Editor Emeritus has her first book out in the world today! Judging by the reactions her stories get when we run them, we know you've all got a lot of love for her work, so go treat yourselves to a copy. You've earned it. Really, you have.

Is it wrong if I want to bring scissors just so I can steal FlatParrot?

And when I thought it couldn't get worse, I read "Serve with mayonnaise." This isn't a recipe. This is a horror flash fic.

This is delightful unto me not only because I want to share one of my favorite stories, but because I of the 4 short stories I've had accepted this year, this is the first one that's actually turned into a sale.

Real talk; we are concerned that we do not have POC representation within our reader and editorial staff. This is something we believe needs to be corrected--representation matters. Our goal is *not* to put anyone in the position to educate us, represent all POC. /1

Yeah, eye dominance is even weirder! (And more unknown to me.) Completely uncorrelated with hand dominance.

If you're a fellow writer going to Worldcon who has evolution/genetics questions for a story or book you're writing, I'm willing to meet up in the bar area to talk science with you. (I'm a genetics PhD student.) Ping me at kehrli@gmail.com & we'll figure out a time.
