Publication Day: Invisible 2
In addition to 19 personal and powerful essays about representation in science fiction and fantasy, this also includes an introduction by award-winning author Aliette de Bodard, as well as a list of all the suggested books and stories from the comments and conversations online. Plus cover art by Mark Ferrari.
Among other things, the authors talk about 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.
Just like last year, Invisible 2 is available as an e-book for $2.99, and all proceeds will go to Con or Bust.
(It should eventually show up on iBooks as well, but I’m still waiting for that to happen through Smashwords.)
Reviewers are welcome to contact me for a review copy.
My thanks to everyone who contributed to this project. Compared to last year, there were far more interested authors, and we ended up with significantly more content as well, which is wonderful! I once again learned a great deal, and I’ve found myself thinking about various essays both as I’m writing, and as I’m reading other stories and books.

Wonderful news! I had made a point of reading and commenting on the first week’s entries, but then I went off for some training at a place where my time and internet activity were very limited, and missed the rest. 🙁 Now that I’m back, I’ll have to remedy that.
This is a wonderful thing you and your guest authors are doing!
