Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mandelo’s introduction explains, “Non-binary identities and expressions are often marginalized; our voices are silenced, our identities are effaced, and our stories go untold.” Defying that trend of oppression, the narrative voices of these 17 stories are loud and strong. “Fisherman” by Nalo Hopkinson, a deeply intimate story about a “mannish woman” visiting a brothel, questions notions of socially acceptable relationships. Sandra McDonald’s poignant “Sea of Cortez” explores covert sexuality on board a navy ship during WWII. “Schrödinger’s Pussy” by Terra LeMay is a love letter of sorts that illuminates what it means to be human, regardless of gender or sexual preference. These and other stellar stories from Catherynne M. Valente, Ellen Kushner, Delia Sherman, and Tansy Rayner Roberts will inspire writers, delight and satisfy readers who are already familiar with fluid gender identities, and leave newly enlightened readers determined to make the world more welcoming.

Meet the Author

Brit Mandelo (britmandelo.com) is a writer, critic, and occasional editor whose primary fields of interest are speculative fiction and queer literature, especially when the two coincide. Her work—fiction, nonfiction, poetry; she wears a lot of hats—has been featured in magazines such as Clarkesworld, Tor.com, and Ideomancer. She also writes regularly for Tor.com and has several long-running column series there, including Queering SFF, a mix of criticism, editorials, and reviews on LGBTQI speculative fiction. When not writing, she is a perpetual student and is working up to an eventual (hopefully) PhD. She is a Louisville native and lives there with her partner in an apartment that doesn’t have room for all the books.
