Invisible 3!

I’m delighted to announce the release of Invisible 3, which I co-edited with Jim C. Hines. 18 essays and poems about representation in SF/F, continuing the conversation. I really enjoyed reading these varied pieces, and I think you will too!

As with the first two volumes in this series, all profits go to benefit Con or Bust, which helps fans of color get to genre conventions.

“At twelve, I perfected the baggy clothes drape. I stood and leaned against walls rather than sitting. Leaning kept the bottom edge of the hard, white fiberglass brace from digging into my thighs and the top edge from pinching under my arms. Either or both would drag my clothes funny and ruin the effect. I was pretty careful, but one pat on the back or a joking poke at my ribs and thunk. Hip to collarbone, my identity was wrapped in a hard shell…”

— Fran Wilde, “Notes from the Meat Cage”
