Survival Is An Achievement. But What Comes Next?

I’ve been publishing novels for ten years, this month, and my first series is still, miraculously, in print. That’s a pretty cool achievement. Both being in print and still being here, still under contract, still writing (albeit slowly, these days).

Enduring the highs and lows of publishing and coming out the other side isn’t for the faint of heart. Some days survival and endurance are enough. I f

The Light Brigade by Kameron Hurley
“When I’m old and dying, wheezing my guts out, my organs failing, I want to walk out the front door of some old farmhouse on my own land, maybe forty, fifty hectares of it. I want to find a cool place in the woods under some old oak tree and settle down there and die as the sun comes up. I want a death rattle, a final breath, a body intact that can then be torn apart by scavengers, riddled with worms, my limbs dragged off to feed some family of little foxes, my guts teeming with maggots, until I am nothing but a gooey collection of juices that feeds the fungi and the oak seedlings and the wild grasses. I want my bleached bones scatted across my own land, broken and sucked clean of marrow, half buried in snow and finally, finally, covered over in loam and ground to dust by the passage of time, until I am broken into fragments, the pieces of my body returned to where they came. I could give back something to this world instead of taking, taking, taking. That’s the death I want.”

“Your voice is powerful. Your voice has meaning. If it didn't, people wouldn't work so hard to silence you.
Remember that.”
Kameron Hurley, The Geek Feminist Revolution

“Life was what you did with what was done to you.”
Kameron Hurley, God's War

“When you understand what the world is, you have two choices: Become a part of that world and perpetuate that system forever and ever, unto the next generation. Or fight it, and break it, and build something new. The former is safer, and easier. The latter is scarier, because who is to say what you build will be any better?”
Kameron Hurley, The Stars Are Legion
