The hilarious and brilliant Sarah Avery (also known as [livejournal.com profile] dr_pretentious) added this to her blog today:

"I'm rooting for [livejournal.com profile] oneminutemonkey's anthology, Scheherazade's Facade, and its Kickstarter campaign. He's been in editorial limbo much the way [livejournal.com profile] thunderpigeon and I have with our Trafficking in Magic, Magicking in Traffic anthology--he started the project under the auspices of a respected small press that put out beautiful books, and then the press couldn't bring it to market. These are hard times for small presses. It's an amazing anthology, not least because it has David Sklar's amazing story "Lady Marmalade's Special Place in Hell" in its table of contents.

"Lady Marmalade" alone is worth the price of admission. It's both hilarious and heartfelt, with a take on Hell that deeply understands Dante and all the authors who've felt compelled to follow Dante's footsteps into that particular underworld--especially the ones who climbed back up with dissenting maps. Despite the fact that my two children were climbing bodily all over me while I read it, I literally could not put this manuscript down. And I mean literally literally.

Michael M. Jones's book was already in Limbo when our Trafficking in Magic/Magicking in Traffic anthology was consigned there. He has been good company here at the outermost threshhold of Hell. It looks possible that the Trafficking/Magicking anthology may escape to something better. I'd love to see Scheherazade make it out, too."

I just discovered Kerry Ann Rockquemore. She is AWESOME:

Writers take note! She specializes in helping junior faculty write consistently and well, but her approaches are incredibly insightful for *any* writer.
