Off to the World Fantasy Convention tomorrow. I have a reading at 1:30pm on Saturday.

Authors put their blood, sweat and tears into their work (I know, I’m one of them), and it can …

“The Poincaré Sutra” by Anil Menon to the sound of Yaarodu Yaaro by Yuvan Shankar Raja & Ustad Sultan Khan… This story appears in Sybil’s Garage No. 7. I, ZULAIKHA, MUTANT, inconvenient and sixteen-point-two miraculous years old, declare myself Eve of a bold and brilliant species. I am Singular. Protoplast. Odd. In short, fucked. I am besieged by fallen apes, hairy and quarrelsome. I am besmirched on the neighborhood’s limestone walls. I am virginal, insolvent and oppressed. Says Zulaikha: bring it! ### Note On Rejecting Modesty: Should a comet apologize for its blaze? I will bellow …
