Carrie Cuinn is an author, editor, bibliophile, modernist, and geek.

Recent stories can be found at Daily Science Fiction, Akashic Books, Chaosium, and in her latest collection, Women and Other Constructs (June 2013). She founded Dagan Books in 2010, publishing SF/F anthologies, novellas, and Lakeside Circus , a quarterly magazine of very short fiction.

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


This list is in no particular order, so being #1 doesn’t represent anything other than it’s a Friday night and you’re probably not looking for serious. You want something fun, something quick, maybe a little dirty, and hopefully, anonymous. You want that chance encounter, that late night thrill, that you can only find on Craigslist.


Wait, that can’t be good, can it?


It’s poetry. In public. On th...

Carrie Carrie said: "5/5* for "You Go Where It Takes You". Perfect magic realism; the supernatural element isn't the whole story. It gives the characters something to react to and think about, but it's just a moment in Toni's life. Who she is, and what she does next, mak...more "

Carrie is on page 17 of 272 of Comics and Language: Introduction - Reads like the intro to a college thesis; more words in the quoted material than in the author's posit. Suggests that comics should be studied not just for art and story but also the text: placement within text bubbles, size of words, word choices, etc.

Vaginal Fantasy H...: * VF: Book and Series Discussion Index 22 2199 Jun 14, 2013 05:00PM  
Harlan Ellison
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
Harlan Ellison

Etgar Keret
“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

John Scalzi
“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.”
