ueers Destroy Science Fiction

Seanan McGuire é 4 Summary

E point of this magazine is that science fiction is vast It is inclusive Science fiction is about people and ueer people no matter how they identify Gay lesbian bisexual demisexual asexual pansexual intersex transgender genderfluid genderueer anyone who fits within the UILTBAG are a big part of that They always have been They're just sometimes harder to see So in the interests of visibility and breaking stuff ueers Destroy Science Fiction will show you just how wide the spectrum of sexuality and gender identity can really be This special all ueer issue features original science fiction short stories from John Chu Kate M Galey Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam Chaz Bren Read the original review at SF BluestockingLast year Lightspeed invited women to destroy SF; this year the LGBT community gets their turn It's glorious and it kicked off this month with a massive special issue of LightspeedAt over 500 pages according to my epub of it ueers Destroy Science Fiction is a weighty piece of work and it's clear that it's been conceived and crafted with deep caring and exuisite attention to its purpose Most importantly a real and successful effort was made to be inclusive of the entire UILTBAG acronym and the than two dozen personal essays included in the issue are must read content for this reason If you're not ueer they offer a great variety of different perspectives to learn from; if you are ueer there's a multitude of stories to identify with Either way if you have a soul something here will speak to youThe fiction included is well chosen which is characteristic of the publication in general and there is a good mix of work included My favorites in no particular order except the one I read them in Trickier With Each Translation by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam  a bit of a time traveling super hero love story The Tip of the Tongue by Felicia Davin a story about reading and government control that has given me a new nightmare Plant Children by Jessica Yang a sensitively written romance about plants and family Nothing is Pixels Here by KM Szpara a story about hard choices Two by Two by Tim Susman a story about the end of the world and how we might face it and who we will face it with Melioration by E Saxey about the power of words Helping Hand by Claudine Griggs an astronaut survival story Bucket LIst Found in the Locker of Maddie Price Age 14 Written Two Weeks  Before the Great Uplifting of All Mankind by Erica L Satifka  exactly what the title says but sad and beautiful I love the conceit of telling a story through a found piece of ephemera A Brief History of Whaling with Remarks Upon Ancient Practices by Gabby Reed exactly what the title says but also sad and beautiful In the Dawns Between Hours by Sarah Pinsker about why or why not and when to use a time machine if you can Letter From an Artist to a Thousand Future Versions of Her Wife by JY Yang another story that is exactly what the title says but also sad and beautiful If you can't tell sad and beautiful are two of my favorite attributes in short fiction and I'm also a sucker for clinically descriptive titles CyberFruit Swamp by Raven Kaldera definitely the most graphically sexual story in the collection and be sure to read the author spotlight on Raven Kaldera The Sound of His Wings by Rand B Lee and O Happy Day by Geoff Ryman Both of these stories deal with obvious Nazi metaphors and totalitarian futures but with vastly different approaches and two very different ways of integrating ueerness into the narrative In nonfiction aside from the truly wonderful personal essays there's also a nice piece on Robert A Heinlein's influence and an excellent interview with David Gerrold This however leads to my only real complaint about the issue which is that the David Gerrold interview is extremely poorly formatted I thought it might just be the epub version of the magazine  but it appears that the online version of the interview is similarly difficult to read because with no uotation marks italics or block uoting it's hard to tell what parts of it are David Gerrold's statements and what parts are Mark Oshiro's commentaryAt just 399 ueers Destroy Science Fiction is a great value and I highly recommend purchasing it  ueers Destroy Horror a special issue of Nightmare will be out in October followed by a ueers Destroy Fantasy issue of Fantasy Magazine in December And in 2016 Lightspeed will be doing POC Destroy Science Fiction with guest editor Nalo Hopkinson
