I made a list of my Jan-Feb recommendation threads on Twitter, sorted by category, and alphabetically by title within category. Enjoy a huge amount of SFF by diverse authors!
It is interesting to look it over, this is the first time I’m making a multi-month post like this since my format change to Twitter from the blog last year. (It should’ve occurred to me to do this earlier!)
I wasn’t aiming for any kind of balance besides not having the same people recur in a single month, I usually just read what I see online and put the good stuff in my posting queue right away. (As I’ve mentioned before, I read about 3-4 stories or poems for each recommended one.) There is a lot from Goblin Fruit and Strange Horizons, because I had a Goblin Fruit and Strange Horizons weekly special during these two months.
People interested in supporting the series are very welcome to get me gifts via Amazon. I am not able to accept monetary donations due to my student visa restrictions, so I don’t have a Patreon and can’t run a fundraiser.
