So a few awesome things happened yesterday. Bitch Magazine mentioned Palmer in their post on genderqueer comics characters, and The Collection, which includes a story by me, was nominated for a Lambda Literary award! If you haven’t read it yet, you can buy The Collection (and other excellent books) in the Topside Press store, or ask your local librarian about obtaining a copy. You can also buy one from me on April 27th if you’re at the Pioneer Valley Zine Fest in Amherst, MA!

WREN: Everything ok?
SAM: My fancy-pants writing workshop is a total bust! No one will say anything about my work except that fantasy isn’t worth writing!
WREN: What, seriously?
SAM: Yes! They’re all pompous asshats who want to write very literary pseudo-experimental novels about straight white middle-class twenty-somethings finding their place in the world, and live off the money they get from selling the movie rights.
SAM: But SOMEHOW magic and faeries are beyond their suspension of disbelief!
