Grigore, Gillian Joseph and Sydney Meeker will be in conversation with speculative fiction writer Eris Young.

About Unthinkable: A Queer Gothic Anthology:

Unthinkable: A Queer Gothic Anthology collects nineteen original Gothic tales primed to unsettle and entertain.

From a Southern Gothic tale of destruction and revenge, to haunted houses and cursed lovers, to an eco-Gothic saga, Unthinkable’s tales present undying themes of love and tragedy, life and death, all suffused with queerness.

Following on from the success of its predecessor Unspeakable: A Queer Gothic Anthology, Unthinkable features stories from a fresh batch of authors, showcasing the depth and breadth of queer Gothic literature.

Edited by Celine Frohn and featuring an introduction by A Dowry of Blood author S.T. Gibson, Unthinkable promises to haunt the reader long after the final page has been turned.

Adriana C. Grigore is a writer from the windswept plains of Romania. They have a degree in literature and linguistics, a penchant for folklore, and a tendency to overwater houseplants. You can find their fiction in Clarkesworld, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and others. Find them online at www.adrianacgrigore.com or on Twitter as @aicigri.

Gillian Joseph (they/them) is a queer, 2-Spirit Ihaŋktoŋwaŋ and Mdewakaŋtoŋ Dakota storyteller who grew up as a guest on Waxhaw and Catawba lands. They are a folio editor at Anomaly, and enjoy spending time near mní + trying to figure out what their dreams mean.
