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.
