Strange Horizons was my first professional SF/F sale, and also the first time I started getting reviews of and emails and tweets about my work. There was something so exciting about that experience, about my fiction being read and, more importantly, considered. That, and knowing that the magazine I'd been steadily devouring for a year loved my little story enough to put their name behind it, was incredibly important to me. Strange Horizons is still one of my favorite magazines in the genre world, and quite frankly, it's more important now than ever.



Carmen Maria Machado's debut short story collection, Her Body and Other Parties, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in October 2017. Her fiction and nonfiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Granta, NPR, Electric Literature, Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy, and Best Horror of the Year. Her short story "The Husband Stitch" was nominated for the Shirley Jackson and Nebula Awards, awarded a Pushcart Prize Special Mention, and longlisted for the Tiptree Award. She holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and has been awarded fellowships and residencies from the Michener-Copernicus Foundation, the Elizabeth George Foundation, the CINTAS Foundation, the Yaddo Corporation, Hedgebrook, and the Millay Colony for the Arts. She is the Artist in Residence at the University of Pennsylvania, and lives in Philadelphia with her partner.
