What We Inherited: A series of interviews by Alyx Dellamonica

Alyx Dellamonica is well established as an author with novels such as Indigo Springs. Her heiresses-of-russ-2016short fiction can be found in quality venues like Beneath Ceaseless Skies and on Tor.com.

This year marks her debut as an editor, with the Lethe Press anthology Heiresses of Russ 2016which she co-edited with Steve Berman. The  table of contents announcement is here.

Alyx has asked some of the contributors if they’d be interested in talking a little about the ideas behind their stories and about the idea of lesbian-themed genre fiction in a series of interviews called What We Inherited.

So far we’ve had A.C. Wise, Claire Humphrey, and Bo Balder.

I was tremendously pleased to be included in  the anthology with Fabulous Beasts and today it’s my turn- my answers to Alyx’s questions can be read here.

Heiresses of Russ 2016: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction

 

I am delighted to be included in Heiresses of Russ 2016: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction with my short story “Fabulous Beasts”.

My thanks to Lethe Press editors A.M. Dellamonica and Steve Berman.

This story was originally aquired for Tor.com by Ellen Datlow.

“The latest volume in the acclaimed Heiresses of Russ series features stories that are anything but invisible: the women in these tales are not hiding and are not easily overlooked but rather are choosing the harder path, the more dangerous route, whether that leads to love or loss or adventure. Included in these pages are stories that have won a World Fantasy Award, a Tiptree Award, and a British Fantasy Award…but every one of these stories chosen by guest editor A.M. Dellamonica (herself an award-winning writer of queer speculative fiction) is emblematic of the new vitality to be found in lesbian-themed tales of wonder, the eerie, and the miraculous.”

From Lethe Press.
