i'm constantly pushing "On a red Station, drifting" on my friends. This one will definitely be on the top of my to-buy-list!

Aw thank you!
(and thank you for pushing "On a Red Station, Drifting" on your friends! It was a hard book to write, so I'm glad it's having such success)

That novella is just gorgeous! I have never read anything like it and I loved it so much - especially the way this ancient and sophisticated culture is embedded in the story. I'm an art historian, so seeing someone really create a future culture that is ancient and where art plays a very important role is really wonderful - because so many sci-fi and fantasy authors never think about the role of art in the worlds they create.
The whole issue about the memories of the ancestors was another thing I very much liked - especially since my academic work is very focused on the role of cultural memory in relation to art and visual culture.

So, this is long-winded way of saying thank out for a wonderful story. I'm really looking forward to reading more of your work.

what most others have said.

I love collections.

I'm looking forward to this. One of the things that strikes me is that I could see another anthology of the same size and quality with stories by women not in this one. Vonda N. McIntyre, Kelley Eskridge, Nicola Griffith, Cat Rambo, Rachel Swirsky, Ellen Klages, Hiromi Goto, Larissa Lai, Andrea Hairston, Eileen Gunn, N. K. Jemisin, M. Rickert, Ann Leckie -- I could go on and on and on, but I know you know what I mean. Anyone who says they just can't find women writing good SF these days isn't just not looking; they're not looking with a bag over the head.
