Sistering is science fiction. Sistering is fantasy. The queer belief that we can reach each other across everything. The decision that we can make the world better for each other. I am excited to announce the publication of my short story “BlueBellow” in the current issue of Strange Horizons, a special issue on resistance. This newest work of underwater afro-futurism was inspired by my sister Ariana Good and a post she wrote on facebook some years ago about transatlantic #twinning. And I am deeply honored that the pieces is published in conversation with an original commissioned work of art by my beloved sister-comrade Soraya Jean-Louis McElroy. Read it and let me know what you think.http://strangehorizons.com/fiction/bluebellow/
