Best American SF&F 2015, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, and The Rumpus

Three bits of news!

First, a story of mine (the title of which is currently top-secret!) is going to be in Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy 2015, edited by Joe Hill and John Joseph Adams. The lineup in this anthology is sort of unreal; I’m going to in be there alongside Karen Russell, Kelly Link, Sofia Samatar, Nathan Ballingrud, Sam J. Miller, T.C. Boyle, Neil Gaiman… I’m so excited.

Next, I have a new story, “I Bury Myself,” in the newest issue of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet! You can order a hard- or e-copy at the link. Here’s an excerpt from the beginning:

Here is what you do when you need to choose the end.
First, find a person who knows your body, and fuck them for three days.
Then, drive to a meadow, where there is so much life.
There, dig a hole long enough and wide enough for your body to fit.
Next, climb in.
Then, wait…

Last, there’s a lovely essay about Angela Carter and the writers she influenced over at The Rumpus, and Claire Burgess takes a minute to talk about my story “The Husband Stitch.” “Like [Angela] Carter before her,” she writes, “Machado combines humor and horror to an evocative and disturbing effect.” Thanks, Claire!
