Charlie Quimby Charlie Quimby's blog:

Colin came into the Day Center with a cast on his hand, boiling. He'd been jumped the night...

As I mulled over my short fiction, I found seven wildly different stories with one thing in common–a heroine totally unlike me. I’m the girl next door. I have no idea where these strange ladies came from.


In The Oniomancer (Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine), a Chinese-American punk...

It can be tricky in this day and age explaining to some people exactly how they are misogynist, racist or any of the other ‘isms’ that we’re all proud not to be.  In the good old days, misogyny was easy to call out – and still is sometimes today – because people would turn round and say ‘Don’t tr...
