things, many things

Eroyn Franklin won the Xeric in 2009. Her work is intricate and fun, and her auto-bio Xeric book, called Another Glorious Day At The Nothing Factory, is arted with cut paper. I also do cut paper work and love to see how others slash n' paste. Her bio contains this perfect line: "Eroyn is generally a very happy person, but there are deep chasms in places where chasms shouldn’t be," which is exactly, exactly the thing.

In case you needed more prodding to give up some cash: YA and science fiction criticism author Justine Larbalestier on why she loves Strange Horizons and why you should donate to their fund drive.


Did you know that there is a museum dedicated to letters and manuscripts in Paris? Now you do! Thanks Letter Writers Alliance!
