Mirror Dance re-opens to submissions

Posted by Megan Arkenberg with 5 comments
That's the big news for today. See the guidelines here, and note that we have a new address for e-mail submissions.

"Palingenesis" has garnered some nice words from Charles Payseur at Quick Sip Reviews (a new favorite review blog, by the way: Payseur's comments are generous, attentive, and lyrically written) and Maria Haskins, who recommends it along with eight other "intriguing" speculative stories from around the web. I won't be linking to the review at Tangent, which misgenders a non-binary character in a way that strikes me as deeply dismissive, if not intentionally malicious. In fact, I'll link to this instead: American Dialect Society, "2015 Word of the Year is singular 'they'."

  1. I'm new at reading this sort of stuff. I so wanted a big reveal at the end of Palingenesis that would explain why Blair was plural.

  2. That's fair. I was hoping "They were not my son, and they were not my daughter" and "the day Blair told me that they were not a boy..." would give readers enough light to navigate by--especially Weird Fiction readers, who are used to getting glimpses and slides of explanation instead of the whole diagram--but I suppose I can see why readers less familiar with that expository style, or genderqueerness, or both, might expect more answers than they were ultimately given.

    I'm afraid I couldn't tell the story I wanted to tell and write "Genderqueerness 101" at the same time, so fortunately enough, it looks like someone has done the latter for me:

  4. Private Dance Lessons Private dance exercises will in general be pricier than gathering exercises, in any case on the off chance that your accounts permit it, at that point this is an extraordinary method to quick keep tabs on your development.capezio nyc
