My first poem in Strange Horizons! "Godmotherless" is a speculation about what you do in a fairy tale without a fairy godmother character. There's also a podcast of it. And if you still don't get it, read the Quick Sips review.

The Genius

That's the title of a new poem published in issue 3 of the up-and-coming Mithila Review. This poem received a whole paragraph of review from Quick Sip Reviews by Charles Payseur. He understood my poem and intentions perfectly! How cool is that? Read the poem (or hear me read it on the Mithila site) and then read the review.
