Steve Almond’s “Why I Write Smut: A Manifesto” is at The Rumpus.

There’s a new e-anthology from the recipients of the Octavia E. Butler scholarship at Clarion and Clarion West, including the inimitable Lisa Bolekaja from my Clarion 2012 class. Proceeds go to funding the scholarship, the goal of which is to increase diversity in the SF/F community. A minimum donation of $8.01 will get this this amazing anthology, Bloodchildren, and is only available until June 22nd, 2013. Donate and get your copy today!
