Difficult news: Curious Fictions will be closing its doors August 27. More details »
From the author: A list of all my queer fic on Curious Fictions (it's quite a lot!) in one place for happy Pride Month reading happiness!
It's Pride Month! Which is a magical, happy, unicorn and space merperson time of year. I write a lot of LGBTQIA fic, and wanted to list all my queer fic on Curious Fictions in one place for happy Pride reading happiness!
My LGBTQIA Novels:
Good King Lyr - A con man. An immortal demigod. A chance at love that could save the universe. Good King Lyr is a slow-burn, genderfluid, ownvoices romance novel, serialized each week. (This Friday the 14th it will be completed, so yay, it'll all be posted very soon!)
My LGBTQIA Stories:
"Possibilities of a Quantum Soul" - A theft of a soul, a heist of a life, a possible murder. Maybe. Things are tricky when you're dealing with quantum souls. And Dari, who doesn't exist, must find out why. | This story is ownvoices, non-binary, and entirely weird.
"Evaluation Notes for Candidates in the Shape-shifter Intelligence Program" - When a government agency develops a shape-shifter program and requires participants to play roles across genders and sexes, the participants discover both enlightening and deeply unsettling things about themselves and the program's agenda. (This story is ownvoices. And raw. There is a content warning for dysphoria and transphobia. There are also moments of self-discovery. It has my full heart.)
"Power Outage" - When the Destroyer comes, worlds fall. Trauma gave Lieve the ability to fly and manipulate energy fields and she joined the Wardens in protecting her world. Now the Destroyer of Worlds has come down from the sky, and to save her world she must confront her past and the nature of her powers themselves. | This is a lesbian space opera superhero story!
The Space Roads - This is a loose space exploration series written in 2nd person with you as the main character in each story. Stories don't need to be read in order, and several stories have LGBTQIA characters, so check out "Civilization in Miniature" (non-binary character) and "Space Watch on the Colossus" (lesbian moms!).
"Sky and Dew" - In the Hallows, words are magic, and words can kill. | This is a secondary world high fantasy story that I originally self-published, and was reprinted in Transcendent 2: The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction ed. by Bogi Takács, which won a Lambda Award as an anthology. (Whoo!)
"Aplanetary" - A non-binary person follows eir lover in an experiment to be born on a planet and live a full life as another species.
"Contents of Care Package to Etsath-tachri, Formerly Ryan Andrew Curran (Human English Translated to Sedrayin)" - "We are sorry for the lack of symmetry, the cloth mammal was obviously damaged and repaired at some point. We were told not to modify it." | This story is a personal favorite, and is a look at transgender acceptance in the context of a person who is trans-species. This was reprinted in Transcendent: The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction ed. by K.M. Szpara.
Happy reading! <3
