Wel­come dis­trac­tion

Herizons - - Letters -

As I was head­ing to the pub­lic library for a quiet evening of brows­ing through staid pe­ri­od­i­cals, I checked my mail­box, found the spring is­sue of Her­i­zons and stuffed it in my bag. As I set­tled down to read in the library, the de­fi­ant im­age of Nalo Hop­kin­son on the cover beck­oned—and there went my quiet evening! Rad­i­cal fem­i­nist sci­ence fic­tion, rape in Rus­sia, the trans­gen­der com­mu­nity in tra­di­tional In­dia and the LGBT move­ment in its mod­ern in­car­na­tion, the fail­ure of the Cana­dian pe­nal sys­tem with its vul­ner­a­ble cit­i­zens, “to hi­jab or not to hi­jab,” the en­vi­ron­ment and many more top­ics kept me wired and ready for more.

Thanks for keeping it edgy! Maya Khankhoje Mon­treal
