About this title

Synopsis:

Something More and More is published in conjunction with the appearance of Nisi Shawl as the Guest of Honor at WisCon 35, May 26-30, 2011 Madison, WI
''He manifested relatively whole, unrotted. Post one of his many surgeries, with makeup evening out the white patches on his poor skin. But beautiful. His song shimmered in the blackness, sweet and silver, ice and snow. About mirrors. Rianne reached out with insubstantial arms and held the mojo toward his chopped up face...'' -- from ''Pataki''
Something More and More collects stories about hoodoo women and musicians, and essays about reading, crowns, and the work of Octavia E. Butler. It also includes a new interview of Nisi by Eileen Gunn, in which she talks about editing, being edited, and the competing charms of writing and making music.
''...Music is essential and powerful in my life, and, I believe, in the world as well. At one point I had to choose which to concentrate on: music or writing. This was in my mid-thirties. I thought I was a bit long in the tooth for a music career, plus bands are so bumpy and full of egos. Writing you can do more or less on your own-- you don't have to, but you can. Music is so seductive, though-- the payoff is more immediate, feeling the resonance of a guitar next to your heart, being inside the sound at the same time the sound is inside you...''-- from Eileen Gunn's ''Interview with Nisi Shaw''
