We’re very thrilled to announce that Sandra McDonald’s wonderful story “Drag Queen Astronaut” was selected for the Honor List for the 2010 James Tiptree Jr. Award! “Drag Queen Astronaut” appeared in Crossed Genres’ Character of Color issue (Issue #24).

["Drag Queen Astronaut" is] a wonderful exploration (and ultimately an affirmation) of a gender presentation that tends to be ignored or ridiculed.

The winner was Baba Yaga Laid an Egg by Dubravka Ugresic. The announcement & Honor List are both posted on the Tiptree website.

Congratulations to Sandra, and to the winner and all the Honor List authors!

Tell people about the issue: help us show that there’s plenty of room for more Characters of Color in SFF- not just in themed issues but all the time!

And help us to continue producing this work: please purchase this issue (print & ebook) to support Crossed Genres!

“I’m not only reserving bookshelf space for the printed edition of A Festival of Skeletons, I’ll be reserving reading and re-reading time for it, too. Be careful of this one, readers; you won’t want to put it down, either!”
~Jean Johnson, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Sons of Destiny series
