19 - Queer Romance in Fantasy with Carl Engle-Laird

This episode I'm joined by Carl Engle-Laird, an editor for tordotcom (though Carl is speaking wholly for himself in this episode).  We discuss queer romance in science fiction and fantasy - some of the things that distinguish queer romances from heterosexual romances in the tradition, and the impact this has on readers.  We touch on the trope of the tragic queer & talk about Carl's reading history and the impact of diving through tordotcom's slush pile.

The amazing art which inspired me to actually get this project off the ground was created by @etrandem
