My first ever completed short story of 2014 was, gratifyingly, my first ever fiction sale. Chuffed doesn’t even begin to describe it.
I researched and wrote ‘The Women and Insects Sang Together’ in a little over a week; I thought if it took the same amount of preparation and cooking as a decent essay, it’s probably okay. Probably. In any case I’ve joined 11 other authors in exploring what Southeast Asian steampunk can be. These are our stories! I’m so pleased to be a part of this whole.
One of our editors, the excellent Jaymee Goh, suggested we participate in Steampunk Hands Around the World. Many of us answered roundtable questions about our stories; I’m getting a little restless waiting for the anthology to come out so I can finally read the work that each writer talks about…
Here’s the TOC + links to each author’s roundtable answers:
THE SEA IS OURS: Steampunk Tales of Southeast Asia
Authors will also be participating in a Twitter chat in the #SEAsteampunk tag on February 15, so drop by!
