My short story, "Love Songs for Circumnavigation," appears in Issue 5 of Wizards in Space, and you can read it here! It follows Alma, who must come to terms with her asexuality as she decides whether or not to salvage her relationship with the boy she loves but won't let herself want—while they're both at the same concert, which just happens to be the tenth-anniversary show for Alma's favorite concept album, The Sound of Daybreak on the Ocean.
Since music is so important to Alma, and since finding the right "sound" for the story was such an important part of finding Alma's voice, I wanted to make a corresponding playlist for the story itself. So here is the playlist Alma would have made about the night this story takes place, with a Side B for her boyfriend Bel and his feelings. As one of my favorite bands, Mother Mother (who are featured on this playlist!) would say, I hope it makes you dance and cry.
