If you are in NYC this week, then you still have time to catch Shane LaVanchers’ Creatures show at the Orchard Windows Gallery. You can get a little preview over at Weird Fiction Review. The show is a stunning array of a hybrid society caught in between–or perhaps created by– natural evolution and our unquenchable thirst for change and progress via technology.
Also, my latest review of Margo Lanagan’s Tender Morsels is up at Fantasy Matters. It’s rare when a fantasy book full of magic refuses to stay in its proper place and burrows into the realm of the grotesque, but I think this slim novel does it.
Last, but not least, I would like to bring your attention to A Thousand Natural Shocks, an interstitial production of dance and words created by fiction writer Kat Howard and choreographers Megan and Shannon Kurashige. I love productions that challenge genres and take us into the slipstream of word, image, and performance.
