Codex Q&A: What are your favorite stories that you’ve published?

In July 2013, I served as the “editor-in-residence” for the Codex Writing Group, which meant basically I was asking a month-long AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) interview. With Codex’s permission, I’m re-posting the Q&As here on my blog. The questions were all provided by members of Codex.


What are your favorite stories that you’ve published? Perhaps, particularly, ones you feel didn’t get accolades/weren’t widely read?

Oh man, that’s almost impossible to answer! Restricting myself to say Lightspeed in 2012 (not counting anything published this year, since any accolades for that stuff is still potentially TK), off the top of my head I’d just say I was surprised that the following stories didn’t get more attention:

“Her Words Like Hunting Vixens Spring,” by Brooke Bolander

“How Many Miles to Babylon?” by Megan Arkenberg

“Family Teeth (Part 6): St. Polycarp’s Home for Happy Wanderers,” by Sarah Langan



From October 1 – October 31, I’ll be running a Kickstarter campaign for a new project called HELP FUND MY ROBOT ARMY!!!, an anthology of improbable, futuristic, magical, & alternate-world crowdfunding projects. Please check it out, consider backing it, and, if you’re so inclined, spread the word!
