I really, really fell off the fandom wagon in 2014. I haven’t even tried to keep up with things (even the thing I like!) in a fair or balanced manner.
But not all of 2014 was doom and gloom, and I did read a few things here and there that I really, really liked. Especially in the first 1/3 or so of the year.
So here’s a totally-incomplete-and-biased list of these things, in case you want more story recs. 😀
Seth Dickinson, “Morrigan in the Sunglare”
Barry King, “Something In Our Minds Will Always Stay”
Yoon Ha Lee, “The Bonedrake’s Penance”
Yoon Ha Lee, “Wine”
Rose Lemberg, “Stalemate”
An Owomoyela, “And Wash Out by Tides of War”
Merc Rustad, “How to Become a Robot in 12 Easy Steps”
Benjanun Sriduangkaew, “Golden Daughter, Stone Wife”
Bogi Takács, “This Shall Serve as a Demarcation”
Ursula Vernon, “Jackalope Wives”
Of these, I am especially fond of Merc’s story and I think it should be nominated for things. So, y’know, those of you who have actual nomination privileges at various places should get on that or something. 😀
(I managed to keep up a little bit better with poems than stories, so poems will get their own separate post, later.)
