Meet the Author

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

    Bittersweet triumphs.

    Unlike the Stardancer/Pelted stories, by the same author, the Jokka stories are not about finding humanity in non-human guise. The Jokka are *not humans*, nor even a funhouse mirror to humanity. They are aliens, with a complex biology that leaves them shackled by their genders -- where humans are a complicated and thus far unknowable amalgam of biological inclination and socialization, the Jokka are defined by what their gender eventually becomes.

    When a full third of the species must risk insanity -- and succumb, soon or late -- lest the species die out... It makes for a harsh world, where few stories can end in anything but bittersweetness; the Jokka are born to an uncertain tragedy, and grab victory and joy where they can.

    "Money for Sorrow, Made Joy" is (obviously) one of the bittersweets. It is, indeed, the story that nearly defines the Jokka for me, containing necessity, sacrifice, determination, and, yes, joy. I believe it's an excellent place to start discovering the Jokka and their world. My one complaint -- aside from a terribly human tendency to want a bit more sweet to the bitter, heh -- is that I don't think there are *more* stories for ke Ekanoi and ke Ledin, and I would like to see more of their travels.

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. The writing implies a greater depth to this world and makes me want to read more.

    What the point?

    I got to the middle of the book, but didn't understand one bit of it. I didn't enjoy as much as i wanted to.
