This is a page for folks who’d like to try my work, but aren’t sure where to begin. This sampler changes as new material comes out, but it contains no more than 6 pieces at any given time.
Birdverse Novelette: Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds. Queer and trans family members, generations, autism, very many carpets. Bonus notes! [Nebula Award nominee; Tiptree Award longlist]
Flash length Story: Seven Losses of Na Re. Permafrost, Yiddish, Soviet Jews. [Reprinted in Ann and Jeff VanderMeer’s Sisters of the Revolution: A Feminist Speculative Fiction Anthology].
Unclassifiable: Bone Shadows. All kinds of things wash up at the Lost and Found of days.
Science Fiction poem: Archival Testimony Fragments/Minersong. A poem from the Boundless universe. Bonus podcast of this poem by C.S.E. Cooney is amazing (starts at 27:40). [Locus recommended Reading List, Rhysling award nominee.]
Epic Fantasy poem: Long Shadow. A Journeymaker Cycle poem about a ghostly child, and the struggle to find a solution to past wars. [Rhysling award nominee, 2nd place in Strange Horizons Readers’ poll.]
One thought on “The Lemberg Sampler”
Enjoyed browsing the work, especially Bone Shadows, which you say is ‘unclassifiable’ but which struck me as very dramatic and probably would work great as a spoken word performance piece.
