A Monstrous Manifesto
For everyone who was at Strowlercon and asked for it, and all those who weren't but might want it, here is the poem I read on Friday night. It is my gift to Strowlerfolk, you may reproduce it free, forever.

A Monstrous ManifestoCollapse )

Thank you, Cat. Thank you for sharing, and for letting US share, too. I so wish you could have "Strowled" with us in St Louis. Please, let there be a second season of Strowling, and let you come to St. Louis. We miss you here!!


This is my first exposure to your work; utterly, amazingly gorgeous. While this is ostensibly about fantastical creatures, there's such an embracing of difference here; to me, this could be as much about the marginalized people of our world as the marginalized creatures of fantasy. And if everyone had the attitude promoted here, our world would be such a better place.

I hope you don't mind if I post a link to this in a couple of places? And for the record, I was so very impressed with this I'm off to Amazon to find some of your other work.

That was, of course, the purpose of the thing. ;)

Please do link, as I said, it can be reproduced free forever. All I ask is credit.

May I repost this with credit on my LJ?

Thank you for this. *stands up* In so many ways, your words encompass how I feel! I hope you don't mind if I link on my blog.
(Also: your NYRSF reading last week was beautiful. You and Seanan made a great team.)

This is just beautiful. I have quoted it in my blog and linked back here.

I love this I was also wondering if I may repost it in my LJ?

Oh, this makes me want to write stories. This is extremely beautiful. Thankyou.

So I just read this, and it is wonderful and I'm sad I missed Strowlercon, and I, um, gave it a tune. I couldn't help it. I'm three days into being sick so the recording is awful, but here's the basic idea: http://www.zshare.net/audio/816526387d81fdea/

I found this reposted on my f-list and linked back.

I just wanted to let you know that I found it a delightful surprise and that I fully intend on enjoying it for quite some time...

Thank you for writing this.

Truly moving, thank you for sharing your creativity! :)
