Libia Brenda es editora, escritora y traductora. Ha participado en varios proyectos independientes, la mayoría relacionados con la ciencia ficción, la literatura fantástica y especulativa (se considera una nerd, básicamente). Escribe ficción especulativa y ha publicado varios cuentos en distintas revistas y antologías; su trabajo ha sido traducido al italiano y al inglés. Es una de las cofundadoras del Cúmulo de Tesla @Cumulodetesla, un colectivo multidisciplinario que promueve el diálogo entre arte y ciencia, con un especial énfasis en la ciencia ficción; y de la Mexicona: imaginación y futuro, una serie de conversaciones sobre el futuro y los géneros especulativos en el mundo de habla hispana, desde México y otros planetas. En 2018 formó parte de la Mexicanx Initiative, una iniciativa liderada por John Picacio. Es la primera mujer mexicana obtener una nominación a un Premio Hugo, por la edición de la antología A Larger Reality/Una realidad más amplia, adjunta al proyecto derivado de aquella iniciativa. A raíz de eso, se emocionó tanto que editó un proyecto híbrido y bilingüe de ciencia ficción: Una realidad más amplia 2.0. Un universo en el que no nos extinguimos, una antología que es también un videojuego (tipo MUD) y puede descargarse, jugarse y leerse, gratis, acá: http://alargerreality.mx/2019/

She is one of the the co-founders of the Cúmulo de Tesla collective, a multidisciplinary working group that promotes the dialogue between the arts and sciences, with a special focus on science fiction; and Mexicona: Imagination and Future, a series of conversations about the future and speculative literature in the Spanish language from Mexico and other planets. In 2018, she was part of The Mexicanx Initiative, an endeavour led by John Picacio. She became the first Mexican woman to be nominated for a Hugo Award, for the anthology A Larger Reality/Una realidad más amplia attached to a project about said initiative. After that, she was so excited that she edited a hybrid and bilingual sci-fi project: A Larger Reality 2.0, an anthology that is also a videogame (MUD style) and can be download and played, for free, here: http://alargerreality.mx/2019/

Lying in bed last night I felt fingers reach in, grabbing. I opened in spite of myself as you clawed me with your fingernails, flattened, panicked. Split throat, iron tongue, white masks ranged overhead, the rings on their fingers scraping me as they reached in to take you.
from my tower we climb, shroud as my veil. We leap on his fae steed
I tell smug Cyclops that I’m as gay as the next mutant, and that all mutants find themselves within battles
Get ready to feel hungry, because the theme for this quarterly roundup is food.
