Anthology of science fiction by the Clarion Class of 2012, to benefit the Clarion Foundation

The Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing Workshop is the oldest workshop in the field, run by a nonprofit (I volunteer on its board), and much-loved by its many grads; the Clarion Class of 2012 (who call themselves "The Awkward Robots") periodically release volumes of their fiction to benefit the nonprofit foundation and pay forward to future classes (previously).

There's a new volume out, the "Green Volume." Lara Elena Donnelly writes:

The students from Clarion 2012 (a.k.a. 'The Awkward Robots') have brewed an eerily bubbling concoction of fiction for imbibing this Halloween! The Green Volume brings you stories of gnome-killing boy scouts, hologram-assisted self-interrogation, epic Norse monsters and the librarians who fight them, horrors both tentacled and branched, and more.

For fans of Sam Miller’s The Art of Starving (Junior Library Guild Selection, Kirkus Starred Review), there is exclusive interview content from the Storylogical Podcast and the short story Allosaurus Burgers, about Matt’s life before he learned the Art. For fans of Lara Elena Donnelly’s Amberlough (the sequel to which, Armistice, drops March 28, 2018), there is a never-before-seen cut-scene from backstage at the Bee.

In the years since they left San Diego, the Awkward Robots have amassed publications in Lightspeed, Asimov's, The New Yorker, Strange Horizons, Granta, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Nightmare, and Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy. At the Clarion Workshop at UC San Diego, the Awkward Robots met and took major strides together toward achieving those publications. In deep gratitude for that shared experience, they make the Green Volume available pay-what-you-want, with all proceeds (after hosting fees) going to The Clarion Foundation.
