About this author

Carrie Cuinn is an author, editor, bibliophile, modernist, and geek. Her work often references and subverts classic science fiction, blending SF tropes with feminism, anti-colonialism, hard science, myth, magic, and other forms of literature. Recent fiction can be found at Unlikely Story, Daily Science Fiction, Akashic Books, Chaosium, and in her latest collection, Women and Other Constructs (June 2013). She founded Dagan Books, Ltd. in 2010, publishing SF/F anthologies, novellas, and Lakeside Circus , a quarterly magazine of very short fiction.

In her spare time she listens to music, watches indie films, cooks everything,reads voraciously, and sometimes gets enough sleep.

Earlier this year, Polish SFF magazine NOWA FANTASTYKA translated and published my story, “Mrs. Henderson’s Cemetery Dance”. The cover is above (click on it to see a larger version). It’s my first translation and my first international publication; I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.


I don’t have the right to scan/post the entire story, but I did want to share this bit:

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
Harlan Ellison

“He misses the feeling of creating something out of something. That’s right — something out of something. Because something out of nothing is when you make something up out of thin air, in which case it has no value. Anybody can do that. But something out of something means it was really there the whole time, inside you, and you discover it as part of something new, that’s never happened before.”
Etgar Keret, Suddenly, a Knock on the Door

“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
John Scalzi
