Per the announcement on Tor.com, I've sold a novella to be published in the fall of 2022! From the press release: 'Feed Them Silence begs the question: what does it mean to “be-in-kind” with nonhuman animals? Dr. Sean Kell-Luden uses a neurological interface to translate a subject-wolf’s perception for human consumption, but as her relationship with the subject becomes complicated, she puts her research and her marriage at risk.'
It's an uncomfortable project, one that I hope readers will settle with and chew on. Look forward to it!
Later 2020 has been good in terms of forthcoming publications, despite the world outside... happening. I've placed an article with Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society titled "More of Us Beyond This Room’: Solidarity and Feminist History(s) in The Future of Another Timeline," and also a short story titled "The Span of His Wrist" to Uncanny Magazine.
I expect the article will be released at some point in 2021, with the short story forthcoming a bit sooner!
Oh, and another small bonus: I recently contributed a column to Andrew Liptak's Reading List newsletter on Reading Trans & Nonbinary Writers.
As was announced yesterday: I've sold a novel to the folks over at wonderful, weird Tor.com -- thanks to all the dedicated friends & colleagues who read multiple, multiple versions of this manuscript over the past few years, to Tara Gilbert and Saritza Hernandez for being excellent agents, and of course Carl Engle-Laird plus the editorial team who loved the book enough to give it a home!
Like the announcement says, "One-third The Sound and the Fury, one-third The Fast and the Furious, and one-third The Secret History, Lee Mandelo’s debut novel Summer Sons is a sweltering, queer Southern Gothic that will be published by Tor.com Publishing in September 2021!"
It's a big, gay, spooky book about codependency & trauma.
For updates & sundry.
