Paige Kimble, somehow no longer in my late twenties, but still a US-born, UK-resident white feminist geek with gender trouble. Hey.
To make a long story short, after a lot of musing and procrastinating and anxiety and one too many Twitter threads that grew way too long, I’ve relaunched my blog.
You’ll get a grab bag of stuff here–partially I relaunched so I’d have more space to talk about speculative fiction, particularly the short stories and novellas that I’ve been tweeting in #lunchread on Twitter. However, I’ve learned from the past that restricting myself in terms of content ends up making me far less likely to post, and so you’ll hear about a lot more than literary SFF–food, cultural snark, a bit of rage, and general geeking out will ensue.
My revamped blog title refers to the message that stymies the main character in Patricia MacLachlan’s children’s novel The Facts and Fictions of Minna Pratt: ‘fact and fiction are different truths.‘
It took me about twenty years to understand that they are, indeed.

One thought on “about: accept no substitutes”
After encountering your lovely, supportive words on Twitter, I’ve decided to read through your stuff here. I hope that doesn’t sound weird or stalkerish. I can identify with the half-abandoned blog blues, though I am attempting a resurrection (of my blog, not myself) this coming year. I look forward to reading what you have to say. Also, you are the second American I like who now lives in Scotland. I hope the universe isn’t trying to tell me something, only because you’re 10 degrees further north than I am (I live in Minnesota, familiar I’m sure as I know you’re from Wisconsin). Anyway, peace.
