The first issue of Interfictions is online and available to read! The fiction, poetry, and nonfiction is all quite stunning in its range of speculativeness. I’m honored to have my translation & song set “A Pentatonic Moon” published within their poetry section. You can read and listen to “A Pentatonic Moon” here!
My short story “The Binding of Ming-tian” is published in Apex Magazine TODAY! The issue is quite excellent, and I’m thrilled to share a fiction table of contents with such amazing writers like Joe Lansdale, Douglas Warrick, Shira Lipkin, Sigrid Ellis, Maggie Slater and the brilliant E. Lily Yu. Warning: my story is darkly surreal and is not for a younger audience or the squeamish, since it is about Chinese foot binding, among other things. With this in mind, you can read my story here:
I’m so pleased to finally share that Sofia Samatar has purchased A Pentatonic Moon for the first issue of Interfictions, a new interstitial magazine. A Pentatonic Moon consists of five ancient Chinese poems, all about the moon and each written by a different Chinese poet (a total of 2 women and 3 men) who lived during the Tang Dynasty, over 1,000 years ago. After I co-translated these poems, I set the English text using the pentatonic scale to 5-part choral music for treble voices. It was also my honor to have the amazing San Francisco Choral Artists perform the first two (Moon and Moonlight) earlier this year. A Pentatonic Moon is one of my favorite creations of 2012, and I’m delighted it has found a home at Interfictions!
