After a strange career that has included working as an actor, a corporate lawyer, an IT project manager, a professor, a dishwasher, and the assistant dean of a technology school, Kenneth Schneyer started (or re-started) writing original fiction in 2007.
In 2014, he received a Nebula nomination for his short story, "Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer", a story that was also a finalist for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. He is a 2009 graduate of the Clarion Writers Workshop, an active member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and a member of the Cambridge Science Fiction Workshop.
Born in Detroit, he now lives in Rhode Island with one singer, one dancer, one actor, and something with fangs.
A book such as this spins not only words but also whole worlds: eighteen of them, representing the best lesbian-themed stories of the fantastic or futuristic published the prior year. The women to be met in these pages will find themselves tested not because of their sexual identity but rather the identity they have composed, constructed, and spun.
Exploring the seams where humanity and technology, society and individuality intersect, Nebula- and Sturgeon-nominated author Kenneth Schneyer presents thirteen mind-bending, thought-provoking tales of near and far futures that will amuse, amaze, and unsettle. These stories confront the question of just what makes and keeps us human.
