The End: Five Queer Kids Save The World(December 2010)

My short story “World War III Doesn’t Last Long,” about a young woman in Brooklyn desperately trying to find her girlfriend after a nuclear disaster, was chosen by editor JoSelle Vanderhooft as one of the best lesbian speculative fiction stories published in 2010 and included in Heiresses of Russ 2011: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction (published by Lethe Press.)

The story was originally published in Collective Fallout, a queer-themed science fiction magazine. You can read an excerpt here.

Blog posts are very ephemeral, but here are a few guest posts I have done on other people’s blogs:

Dreaming In Books hosted a week-and-a-half long LGBTQ Voices extravaganza in honor or Day Of Silence. (Day Of Silence happens once a year, when students take a vow of silence to draw attention to homophobic bullying and harassment.) I was very honored to get to do a guest post among august company like Malinda Lo, Nancy Garden, Brent Hartinger, Catherine Ryan Hyde, and Cheryl Rainfield. My post was about giving LGBTQ fictional powers that the world is trying to deny queer teens.
This one was kind of magical! I got to write a review of one of my favorite books for my favorite blog! Here is my guest post about The Man Without A Face on Lee Wind’s awesome “I’m Here! I’m Queer! What The Hell Do I Read?”

My wife Áine Ní Cheallaigh and our friend Franny Hogg wrote a wonderful book on how to create a writing group, called Writing Group in A Box: Just Add People! In the book, they included free-writing prompts and examples of stories that our real-life writing group did in response to these prompts. I was proud to have eleven of my stories chosen for this book.

Now, you may think this last one is scraping the bottom of the barrel, but I have to say that I was thrilled to pieces when my letter was published in The New York Times.
