signal boosts: Polyphony 7 & Hal Duncan on Airbender  
(And now I have to do diss work! Everyone who responded to my previous post, thank you so much, you made my day! And I'll respond soon, once I've made actual diss progress )

Meanwhile, ACK! I have no idea how I missed this -- Polyphony 7 needs a hundred or so more pre-orders or it won't actually happen. And the Polyphony series is really damn important to me, y'all. It's what first showed me that perspectives like mine might be valid too, and that genrebending is okay. It's where I first found Vandana Singh's work & realized I was not the only Indian writing spec fic.

Apart from my personal story, though, they're great anthologies, top-rate and truly different from most of the ones you'll find, and I'd hate to see them go, so -- if you're even a little interested, do please consider pre-ordering #7!

Also while I'm signal boosting, Hal Duncan is kicking ass. He says: The Last Airbender is a water-fountain with a sign above it reading WHITES ONLY -- among other things, of course. (via charlesatan.)

I think I posted a Polyphony signal boost a while back, but that might have been during the time you were taking a break from LJ for a few weeks.

This time I'll make sure to put my money where my mouth is and pre-order Polyphony 7 tomorrow. Ordering things online will be so much easier for me once I have my own credit card, which should be sometime during the summer, since I need it for college.

I hope you find it as impressively mindbending an experience as I found Polyphony 1 :)

The only Polyphony I actually own so far is Polyphony 4, which I originally bought because it contained Theodora Goss's "The Wings of Meister Wilhelm." This was before I knew she had a full-length collection on the way, but I'm glad I got the anthology anyway. Great (and weird) stuff. I've also read and liked stories in other places that were originally published in one of the other Polyphony volumes, so I might pick up some of the other Polyphonys later.
