This summer, Unlikely Story will publish their Unlikely Cartography issue, featuring stories by Shira Lipkin, Kat Howard, Sarah Pinsker, Carrie Cuinn, and others. Together with editors A.C.

Maps seem to be a popular theme at Readercon this year. Are we trendsetters? We like to think so. Readercon consistently offers thoughtful discussion and insightful programming. Check out the full schedule, map-related and otherwise.
