Broad Knowledge: 35 Women Up to No Good (part of the Women Up To No Good series), edited by Joanne Merriam, up now on Kickstarter, will include SFT by Teresa P. Mira de Echeverría (Argentina) and Estíbaliz Espinosa (Galicia):
“Liquid Glass” (original) is by Argentine author Teresa P. Mira de Echeverría (@TeresaPME). Her novelette, Memory, is also available from Upper Rubber Boot Books (in a translation into English by Lawrence Schimel, who also translated “Liquid Glass”), and was a finalist for the Spanish national science fiction award, the Ignotus.
Estíbaliz Espinosa has published seven poetry books, short stories about scientific women, and some books of poetry translation. “:: 23 commuter line chromosomes ::,” first published in Galician in her collection Curiosidade, appears here in its first appearance in English, translated by the author.
“Tor Books has acquired the rights for the English translation of Elżbieta Cherezińska’s The Widow Queen, a fantasy duology inspired by the story of Świetosława, an influential real-life Polish princess who has been largely left out of history books.” Read more here.
Escher’s Loops by Zoran Živković, translated from Serbian by Alice Copple-Tošić (from Cadmus Press): “Once again Zivkovic demonstrates the sheer power of storytelling in this complex cycle of interlocking narratives. Like one of Escher’s drawings, the narrative threads lead one through a dizzying labyrinth of recurring themes, images and characters, all of whom are linked with elegant mathematical precision: God and suicide, food and poison, monks, athletes, soldiers and soccer players all take their places in the circle-dance. Absurdity, surreality and humor abound; death is the ultimate destiny, yet always the next story offers infinite ways of escape.”
