While I was on vacation, I accumulated some good news.

First, the table of contents for Spelling the Hours, a poetry chapbook forthcoming from Stone Bird Press, has been announced. The chapbook (a bonus for backers of An Alphabet of Embers) focuses on previously forgotten figures in science and technology, and it includes my poem "A Personal History of the Universal History of the Things of New Spain," which is about the unknown Nahua artists of the Florentine Codex.

Second, my poem "glass womb" is slated for publication in the fall issue of Interfictions. I think I've been subbing this poem for over ten years, but it crystallized into its final form quite suddenly in January. I credit gruesome pics on tumblr.

Third, my poem "The Skin-Walker's Wife," originally published in Strange Horizons, will be reprinted in the Queers Destroy Horror! issue of Nightmare magazine, which should be out around October.

More details (possibly even poem notes!) when publication draws near.

Cheers, my friends!

Such a kind thing to say! I really feel more "stubborn and lucky," especially since a rejection arrived overnight to keep me humble. ;)

Yes! I'm tempted to go on vacation again, to see if I can rack up more sales. ;)

"The Skinwalker's Wife" is one of my all-time favorites of yours--I'm glad it's getting republished. And congratulations on the other upcoming publications, too!

Thank you, dear. When Robyn Lupo asked about queer horror poets on Twitter, I had no idea why. So glad I raised my hand!
