YAY I CAN POST THIS! I got links to this piece while I was in Florida, but was cautioned not to post yet. Now I can.
You know how the Interstitial Arts Foundation is doing an auction
of wearable art of all kinds based on the stories in Interfictions 2
. (Pre-order today!)“Information is sacred. I don't remember why, or who told me. But I know that information is sacred, so I write it down, scraps of knowledge and observations. I used to write in leather-bound journals with elegant heavy pens, but my fetish for elegance has fallen by the wayside in my rush to commit everything to paper. Now I use cheap marbled composition books, purchased by the dozen. The pen is still important, though. It must write in smooth lines of black, not catch on the page. There is too much to capture.”

You guys. I am so incredibly excited about this story, and it being in this anthology. To give you a general idea: this is my husband's favorite story of mine ever.
And I am so excited about the auctions, because I so love it when people make beautiful things based on stuff that came out of my head; I've seen ioianthe
