Review: Gloss via spitkitten, Brain Harvest - a new online mag to launch March 1

Seattle writer Caren Gussoff, author of Homecoming (2000) and The Wave and Other Stories (2002) and a 2008 alumna of the illustrious Clarion West Writers Workshop (visit Gussoff at www.spitkitten.com for the full scoop on her work), drops in with a report on this week's Fantastic Fiction reading:
Oregon-based author Molly Gloss *pnwd* the intimate audience that attended her reading on February 23 at the Fantastic Fiction Salon (co-sponsored by Richard Hugo House and NW Media Arts). Gloss read her multiple award-winning short story, “Lambing Season,” the elegant tale of an isolated sheepherder who makes first contact (the story is available in Gardner Dozois’s The Best of the Best: 20 Years of the Year’s Best Science Fiction). The next workshop and reading features celebrated SFF author, Nancy Kress, on March 29 and 30 (get the details here or see the earlier post).
Thanks for the bringing the news! On March 1, Gussoff is also launching an online speculative fiction mag, Brain Harvest: An Almanac of Bad-Ass Speculative Fiction
, with co-editors Shane Hoversten and Eden Robins.

In the meantime, fun with following: BrainHarvest and spitkitten on Twitter, norwescon (the events schedule for April 9-12 is up) and seattlegeekly, too. Power to the Tweeple.
