The Future of Sex, by Jed Hartman (6/2/03)
Where are the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, intersexed, polyamorous, or kinky people [in these futures]? Have they all gone into hiding, or maybe gone off to colonize planets of their own?
Fish, Fingers, and Friends: Meet Me in the Moon Room, by Ray Vukcevich, by Jed Hartman (5/19/03)
One of the things Vukcevich does best is to externalize subjective perception by making metaphors literal, turning the subjective experience into a fantastical or surreal external reality.
Journals and Communities, by Mary Anne Mohanraj and Jed Hartman (3/31/03)
Online forums of various sorts, and particularly online journals, have provided a fertile ground for community-building in the speculative fiction world. Here at Strange Horizons, we're big proponents of community-building, so we're pleased to see this process at work.
Celebrating New Celebrations: Alexei Panshin's Anthony Villiers books, by Jed Hartman (3/24/03)
The Anthony Villiers books are short, funny comedies of manners in a far-future setting; not, perhaps, Panshin's deepest work, but definitely his most entertaining.
Where Never Lark or Even Eagle Flew, by Jed Hartman (2/3/03)
. . . this vision of an African-American man, an Indian woman, a white American woman, and an Israeli man working alongside their white male American colleagues—this isn't a science-fiction TV series, this is real life.
Books Within Books: John Crowley's Aegypt, by Jed Hartman (3/25/02)
Aegypt is a novel that provides readers with keys to reading it. The characters talk frequently about books, both their own and those by others (and about lives as books, and books as lives). . . .
Where Does Genre Come From?, by Jed Hartman (12/3/01)
I went through a big paradigm shift when it was first pointed out to me that for many purposes, science fiction is simply a marketing category. A couple years after that, I heard Kris Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith talk at a convention about fiction that spans genre boundaries; if I remember right, they said that a science fiction romance novel would sell something like ten times as many copies if marketed as a romance than it would if marketed as SF.
Interesting and Unusual Things, and Not Only on Mondays: Joan Aiken's Short Fiction, by Jed Hartman (10/29/01)
I've always been struck by Aiken's ability to write stories that go in unexpected directions: a story might start out with a BBC man visiting a village in the country, as in "The Rose of Puddle Fratrum," and end up with an intelligent computer, a cursed ballet, and a mysterious recluse.
Carla Speed McNeil's Finder: Sin-Eater, by Jed Hartman (2/12/01)
"Can you kill my husband for me?" That was the one question she never asked me. If she had, everything would have been different.
Three Ways of Looking at Howard Waldrop (and Then Some), by Jed Hartman, et alia (1/29/01)
This week is our first Author Focus week at Strange Horizons, featuring Howard Waldrop, one of the most unusual writers in the speculative fiction field. This article provides a brief introduction to Waldrop's fiction, and also links to three other fascinating introductions to Waldrop: one by George R. R. Martin, one by Gardner Dozois, and one by Eileen Gunn and Leslie What.
Brevity Is the Soul of Fiction: A Paean to the Short Story, by Jed Hartman (12/4/00)
Short stories don't get the respect they deserve. For me, short fiction is . . . the heart of the speculative fiction field.
