Author Week #6: Silvia Moreno-Garcia

We’re back for our sixth special Author Week feature, and this week we have with us Mexican author Silvia Moreno-Garcia!

Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Silvia, who now lives in Canada, is the publisher behind Innsmouth Free Press, co-editor of several highly regarded anthologies including Fungi, Historical Lovecraft, Future Lovecraft, Candle in the Attic Window and is forthcoming sole editor of Dead North.

A short story writer, her fiction has been published widely and her first collection, This Strange Way of Dying, is out in June.

Silvia was a contributor to The Apex Book of World SF 2 and translated a story for us for volume 3. She is a Carter V. Cooper Memorial Prize winner (in the Emerging Writer category), and was a finalist for the Manchester Fiction Prize.

Silvia is currently fund-raising in order to complete and publish her first novel, Young Blood, about vampires and drug dealers in Mexico City.

This week, we’ll have a short story from Silvia; an interview with the author; and an exclusive guest-post.

But first – a giveaway!

We have one copy each of Silvia’s anthologies Fungi and Future Lovecraft to give away! To enter simply post a comment down below (not forgetting to include your e-mail).

  1. ¡Muchas felicidades y mucho éxito, Silvia! Eres un orgullo para la Ciencia Ficción mexicana. Congratulations, Silvia, we are very proud of you in Mexico.

  2. I’d really like that (even if I’m not sure that the give away is open for European). I’m curious to know why Silvia wrote in English and not in Spanish (nothing against one or the other, juste curious).

  3. I lived in Mexico for a few months as a teen. At that time I was looking everywhere for Mexican SF/F but I couldn’t find any at that time. I wish I knew of your work. I love your Vampire story, Un charco de sangre here at World SF. Best of luck on your novel!

  4. I’m looking forward to reading more from Silvia. Been meaning to, but haven’t got around to it yet!

  5. Unfortunately my lack of credit is once again stopping me from supporting something amazing. I loved the short story she did in Evolve 2. Since it sounds like Young Blood is an expansion on that, I would glady give money if I could do it in cash. I hope she succeeds so that I can help support it retroactively by buying the finished product.

  6. Not only is Innsmouth Free Press one of the best pan-Lovecraftian enterprises going, but the marriage between Aztec Mexicana and the Mythos is a match made in Heaven (or maybe at the throne of Azathoth …)

  7. So, I just discovered Silvia, and I also didn’t realise that she is the one behind the Innsmouth Free Press. Intrigued, I took a peek at her blog and was simply impressed with her efforts and ambitiousness, especially after reading her “Women Be Bitchy” post, where she demonstrates a strong proclivity for speaking up and challenging the sexist status quo; it was then I easily decided I must support this writer and her writing. So, I just wanted to say that regaurdless of the giveaway, I will be picking up some of her works as I am able to, so that I may get more acquainted with her writing and drop off some reviews for her. syd AT cemeterycreep DOT com
