The Monthly Aqueduct

News about all things Aqueductian

Out best new year's wishes from the Aqueduct! We are very happy to start the year with two new Aqueduct releases, which you will find below alongside the BSFA Award long list and announcements to various projects currently in the works that we're very much looking forward to.
Marginalia to Stone Bird,
poems by Rose Lemberg

Cover of Marginalia to Stone BirdWe are very pleased to announce the release of Marginalia to Stone Bird as the forty-eighth volume in Aqueduct's Conversation Pieces series. In this powerful debut collection, Rannu Award-winning poet Rose Lemberg explores the deep-rooted fluidity of gender, tradition, language, and desire in landscapes as familiar as high fantasy and as foreign as San Francisco. Written in the voices of immigrants, shape-changers, sentient ships in a distant future and heroes of a mythic past, her poems inhabit a fragile, vital space of complex identity and story as a conscious act, stubbornly urging the reader's attention toward the marginal, the liminal, and the unheard—a firebird cautioned to burn less brightly, a ghost-child ignored by the gods, a lover laying a road of words for a beloved to follow. By turns devastating and deeply hopeful, Marginalia to Stone Bird writes a fearless commentary on our history and others.

The book is available in print for $9 and in e-book for $5.95. Visit our website or click on the cover for more information and purchase options.

"Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin" Documentary Crowdfunding

Ursula K. Le Guin on the beach


















A feature documentary on Ursula K. Le Guin's life and legacy is in the works and planned for release in 2017. Director and producer Arwen Curry and her team have been awarded a grant by The National Endowment for the Humanities, which will only be released once full funding for the project has been attained. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to reach this goal, which could earn participants a number of bookish and other rewards, apart from the satisfaction of having contributed towards such a great project. The campaign is open until March 4.
