You know what day it is, people? It’s release day for Invisible 2, a collection of essays on representation in speculative fiction. The collection is edited by the wonderful Jim C. Hines and features an essay by yours truly,1 plus work by eighteen other amazing individuals.
Topics covered by the essays include (in Jim’s words)
the portrayal of asexuality, the intersection of different aspects of identity, the treatment of Native Americans in fiction, myths and assumptions about military life, Princess Leia as an assault survivor, the power of fiction to open your eyes to other experiences, as well as representation of disability, religion, race, and so much more.
Invisible 2 is available as an ebook for just $2.99, with all proceeds going to Con or Bust. So not only do you get an amazing awesome book of cool writing, but you get to contribute to a worthy cause while you’re at it. I mean, seriously. What are you waiting for?

- On a personal note, I’d also like to take to thank Jim for not just organizing the Invisible series, but for giving me the opportunity to contribute. Last year’s collection meant a lot to me, so having an essay accepted into Invisible 2 was a huge honor.↩
