Today Uncanny Magazine published a press release about their Kickstarter for Year 4. That in of itself is pretty exciting as Uncanny is consistently publishing some of the best SF/F/H in the field.
Included in their year 4 plans is a special issue of Disabled People Destroy. Lightspeed Magazine is officially handing over the wonderful People Destroy mantle to Uncanny, and it should come as no surprise that Uncanny is doing a Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction issue as a result.
What is particularly exciting for me is that I am the GUEST FICTION EDITOR-IN-CHIEF for that issue! I’ve loved the People Destroy series, so I’m honoured to be working with Uncanny on this project. Elsa Sjunneson-Henry will be joining me as Guest Non-Fiction Editor-in-Chief, and we’ll be working with Judith Tarr (Reprint Editor), S. Qiouyi Lu (Poetry Editor), and Likhain as the Cover Artist.
- Editor-in-Chief/Fiction Editor: Dominik Parisien
- Editor-in-Chief/Nonfiction Editor: Elsa Sjunneson-Henry
- Reprint Editor: Judith Tarr
- Poetry Editor: S. Qiouyi Lu
- Personal Essays Editor: Nicolette Barischoff
- Cover: Likhain
The issue will feature disabled staff, writers, poets, and artists. We have already solicited work in all our departments, and we will be opening to submissions later in the year provided the Kickstarter is successful.
I’ll be posting more details about the issue once the Kickstarter is online next month, including some posts about what it means for me personally to be involved in the project.
