“Found” in Clarkesworld!
I have a new science fiction story, “Found”, in this month’s issue of Clarkesworld!
It’s one I started working on in 2008 – I had an early version workshopped at Wiscon that year, and owe Kelly Link my thanks for an insightful comment that changed how I saw the story and its protagonist. I also want to thank whoever it was in the workshop who suggested that ground spices and zero-G may not work well together. I tried rewriting it in 2010 and still couldn’t get it right, but earlier this year I started again, around the MA, and worked on it until I got a version that does what I want it to do. I hope readers agree!
It’s about spices, people living in asteroids, and dealing with the personal intersection of privilege with lack of privilege. And genderqueerness, because fuck binary futures.
