Another Imprint in Borrowed Clothes

About

J.F. High is an advocate for indigenous rights and an (urban) fantasy author who lives in Washington (state), but is originally from Los Angeles, California. The differences are staggering (particularly in temperature) but the ocean and the I-5 are exactly the same. J.F. is a Chiricahua Apache (Ndeh) and Cora Indian (Náayarite). He may or may not be a believer and/or practitioner of real world magic, but if he were, he is not interested in your hippy-dippy, crystal swinging, dream-catcher slinging garbage. But magic is real, let's not fuck around.

I have two important things to share with you. The first one should be obvious. I have changed the look of my website to be easier to read. Personally, I prefer light text on a dark background, but I have conceded that this is not a common preference. I am hoping that you guys appreciate the new look. If you don’t, or have any ideas about what changes I ought to make, I would appreciate the feedback.

 

Second and more importantly, I have my tentative Norwescon 39 schedule. The panels I was selected for are full of fascinating subject ideas and I want to pick brains on these subjects in the two months leading up to the convention, so if anyone has any bright ideas, please reach out to me. Also, if you’d like to see me at Norwescon, but you have a huge time crunch and you have to pick and choose when, what I would absolutely love, more than anything, is to have you show up for my reading at 10:00pm on Saturday night. After that, we can go bury our money in our shot glasses.

    1. This is one that I have a lot of strong feelings about. It’s when you have deeply loved a specific medium of story (book/t.v. show/movie/whatever) but after you have started to think more about the narrative of justice and respect you realized that it is heavily problematic. One issue that the illustrious A. Drennan and I were discussing recently is that I have loved Game of Thrones since the nineties, but I have had to think about the fact that there is a lot of exploitative rape in that story and how that affects my view of the books (and the television show).
