If you like weird fiction, you might check out Baffling Magazine, the zine dave ring and I co-edit with Gabriella Etoniru. Baffling features queer flash that encompassed Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and yes, Weird Fiction from authors from a variety of backgrounds and identities. The first year of the magazine’s stories has been published. You can order a copy here!
Join me and Black editors Eboni Dunbar (FIYAH Magazine), Brent Lambert (FIYAH Magazine), Chinelo Onwualu (Omenana/Anathema), and LaShawn Wanak (Giganotosaurus).
We’ll be discussing their journeys into editing and the role editors play in creating space for the voices of BIPOC communities in the speculative fiction field.
Moderated by Arley Sorg of Locus and Fantasy Magazine.

dave ring and Gabriella Etoniru did the heavy lifting for this issue, due to my unfortunate experience with COVID-19.
The new issue of BAFFLING MAGAZINE, the online magazine of queer speculative fiction edited by dave ring and myself, is now out!
The first piece of flash fiction is up at the Baffling Magazine Patreon. It’s one of Jewelle Gomez’s Gilda Stories–the now classic black lesbian vampire protagonist.
I will be co-editing Baffling Magazine, a new flash fiction venue that specializes in Weird Fiction with a queer bent, alongside dave ring, who runs the Neon Hemlock micropress. (“Weird Fiction” isn’t strictly Lovecraftian/cosmic horror here; it includes the new fabulism of Kelly Link and Jeffrey Ford).
A submission announcement will go up soon. In the meantime, you can check out the mostly skeletal website here.
Speaking of Neon Hemlock, they are also running a chapbook contest (poetry/fiction/nonfiction categories) for the OutWrite Literary Festival, which happens every summer. It is only opened to writers in the DVM (District-Virginia-Maryland) area and has some awesome judges.
Finally, I will be reading some fiction on Neon Hemlock’s Instagram feed on June 17, along side Eboni Dunbar and Suzan Palumbo. More info —
