""Delany was instrumental in supporting the decolonization of my imagination, truly the most dangerous and subversive decolonization process, for once it has started, there are no limits on what can been visioned. This type of science fiction/speculative fiction,"visionary fiction"-as opposed to mainstream SF that reinforces dominant paradigms of power and oppression-is the foundation of my work now.."Walidah Imarisha" Jul 26, 2015 08:39PM

Tiara
Tiara is 20% done with Warbreaker: Siri is definitely better suited for this role,than her older sister who was raised for this role. It allows Siri to be who she is while Vivenna is like a lost lamb.

Glaiza is finished with The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao: Oh Oscar. The narrators of the audiobook are fantastic. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

The Holy Terror
The Holy Terror is 7% done with The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate: One day I would have all the books in the world, shelves and shelves of them. I would live my life in a tower of books. I would read all day long and eat peaches. And if any young knights in armor dared to come calling on their white chargers and plead with me to let down my hair, I would pelt them with peach pits until they went home.

“To find a new world, maybe you have to have lost one. Maybe you have to be lost. The dance of renewal, the dance that made world, was always danced here at the edge of things, on the brink, on the foggy coast.”
Ursula K Le Guin

Gabrielle Zevin
“Sometimes books don't find us until the right time.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Ann Leckie
“Thoughts are ephemeral, they evaporate in the moment they occur, unless they are given action and material form. Wishes and intentions, the same. Meaningless, unless they impel you to one choice or another, some deed or course of action, however insignificant. Thoughts that lead to action can be dangerous. Thoughts that do not, mean less than nothing.”
Ann Leckie, Ancillary Justice

Karen Lord
“I told you from the very beginning that it was a story about choices – wise choices, foolish choices, small yet momentous choices – for with choices come change, and with change comes opportunity , and both change and opportunity are the very cutting edge of the power of chaos. And yet as the undying ones know and the humans too often forget, even chaos cannot overcome the power of choice.”
Karen Lord, Redemption in Indigo

Gabrielle Zevin
“We aren’t the things we collect, acquire, read. We are, for as long as we are here, only love. The things we loved. The people we loved. And these, I think these really do live on”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
