I’m so excited that my story “And Yet” is now up and free to read at Uncanny Magazine! This is a story I care deeply about, though it’s not personal. I’ve never been to a haunted house and my parents have always been super supportive. But it’s important to me because I want there to be more disabled characters in fiction that aren’t viewed through the lens of their disability. Who are individuals, first and foremost.
Also, I’ve been having a lot of fun lately bending time in my stories and I love having protagonists that are problem solvers to the core.
This story started its life as my week 2 Clarion West story while Kij Johnson was teaching. It was also revised frantically this fall while I was house hunting. I can now say from experience that you probably shouldn’t work on a haunted house story while trying to pick out your next home. It just adds another weird layer of stress to the process.
As always, I listened to one song on loop while I wrote and revised this piece. So thanks Woodkid for “Land of All”
Hope you enjoy the story!
ETA: Oh, I was also interviewed up at Uncanny Magazine where I talk about the story and other things with Caroline M. Yoachim!
