I also quite liked the essay by Foz Meadows, and should check out her blog. I do wish the essays delved more into literary criticism and book reviews.
P.S. The cover rocks!!
“Ye Highlands and Ye Lowlands” by Seanan McGuire: The narrator helps create a tech that can send things to other planets, and her team sends robots to another planet to collect data and make contact with potential aliens. But then, consequences happen. Cool concept, but a bit repetitive, and difficult to pull off since it opens by telling exactly what the consequences are. 3.5/5
“The Sound of Salt and Sea” by Kat Howard: The dead rise from the sea once a year, and the bone horses round them up to return them, but require a rider. Haunting short story, that feels like it could be a novel. 4.5/5
“The Blood That Pulses in the Veins of One” by JY Yang: An alien flesh-eater is captured by scientists, and put under the scalpel. Body horror is not my cup of tea, but this one is well written. 4/5
“You’ll Surely Drown Here If You Stay” by Alyssa Wong: Novelette. In a brothel on the outskirts of the desert, a boy can make the dead dance, and the desert calls to him. He's inherited both his father's and his mother's powers, but when a group who own the desert mine come to town, he may have to learn to harness his powers fast. Interesting, well-written story. 4/5
“The Drowning Line” by Haralambi Markov: A family line is cursed, to drown in a lake as they once drowned the lake's ghost. But it's many generations after, and a man doesn't want to loose his daughter to the drowning. Odd story. I wonder if this is based on a folktale? 3/5
“The Plague Givers” by Kameron Hurley: Novelette. Bet is a retired plague hunter, and when a shomon and another plague hunter arrive at her door in the swamp with a letter from the lover she thought was dead, she's forced to come out of her retirement. This was actually really good--I say 'actually' because I do not consider body horror my cup of tea, but this issue is surprising me in that respect overall. Love Bet. 4.5/5
“Diversity: More Than White Women” by Foz Meadows: Engaging piece about women in current tv series and movies. Love the James Bond's Law. I wish I had Netflix so I could watch Jessica Jones; I've only heard good things. 5/5
“Where Do We Find Community as Gamers?” by Tanya DePass: Looks at safe communities for gay and POC gamers. I'm not a gamer, but seems like a good piece to read if you are and are interested in gamer communities. 3.5/5
“Ludo and the Goblin King” by Sarah Monette: 3/5
“In the Hands of the Goblin King” by Stephanie Zvan: 2.5/5
The last 2 essays were misses for me because the authors explorations the movie Labyrinth, which I have not seen since I was a child and it scared me so I never watched it again. It's been about 30 years, so at this point the only thing I remember about the movie is a puppet peeing off a labyrinth wall. It sounds like a movie I would like, so perhaps I should give it another try.
“Deeper Than Pie” by Beth Cato: 4/5
“Brown woman at Safety Beach, Victoria, in June” by M Sereno: 3/5
“Alamat” by Isabel Yap: 4/5
