MESSY ≈ ORDERED

)) METROPOLARITY SF DISTRO SUMMER SELECTIONS ((

So our distro site is here for the physical pickup action. = )

Our HQ Metropolarity.net needs a lot of love, but since AMC planning took over my life, and I work on computers for $$$, I’m taking a summer vacay from spending any time massaging relevant blog content (although there’s so much planned!). It IS good for keeping up on our events though. 

However… the insidious FBook is still the easiest place to keep up on our events, and a lot of our network’s events in Philly and the surrounding area. So peep us there if you really wanna keep up on what we’re doing, where we’re going. (Like actually just check the page from time to time, cause you know how FB likes to manipulate what information shows up for who and when.)

Oh AND WE HAVE AN OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TILL JULY 31st DON’T BE SHY NOW PRETTY PLEASE PRETTY PRETTY

OH AND WE’LL BE AT ripexpo IN PROVIDENCE THIS AUGUST 2-3rd w/ heyanniemok & superdefstar 

This stuff is all wonderful and yes we’ll all be at RIPE! Rasheedah, Alex, & Maggie Eighteen will be on a panel I’m curating/moderating about personal takes on sci-fi/genre/fantastical worlds, along with O Horvath, Inés Estrada, and Alabaster—. xoxoxoxo

ok, officially metropolarity crew will not be at RIPExpo, which is a damn shame but maybe we’re gonna hologram jump in on the panel Annie Mok is moderating via surveilled channels (read: gchat video)…

"Errand" by Maggie Eighteen (of the crucial Metropolarity Collective) & me, a new dystopian smut story. It takes place in the sci-fi universe of Eighteen’s prose zine series All That’s Left.

You can read it in a much larger/prettier/more readable format on Medium.

check it out, Ripley

some side side side characters in my All That’s Left universe for a one-shot romance jawn

As someone who owns three All That’s Left zines, this made me giddy like a kid. I love the swirling augmented reality displays in the 6th-8th panels!

Eighteen’s margin note for that part was “FAGGOT WEB WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE”

(in reference to D. Travers Scott’s piece from the Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore-edited Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?)

ooh good lookin out there

Like for real, the horrifying part of transhumanism and cyborgification (aside from the obvious body horror) is that it makes enforcing hierarchies of political & social power even easier.

Corporations potentially controlling or altogether revoking possession of implants as a way to control people who need them to survive.

Pricing medicinally important cybernetics such that only the privileged can afford them, effectively relegating lower classes to inferior health (like they are now), or, depending on environmental factors in the future, even entirely killing off the lower classes.

Or hell, the potential cyber-lichdom of those who can afford to continually upgrade & repair their robot bodies, thus ensuring multiple lifetimes to solidify their rule.

"Body horror" is a funny way to write "purifying one’s body with the new flesh". The Adeptus Mechanius will be monitoring you
