However that may be, our author Miriam Seidel will appear at the next PSFS meeting, September 14, to read from and discuss her novel The Speed of Clouds.

The PSFS event creates another oddity because the book isn't really sci-fi. It's about sci-fi fans, and it contains snippets of futuristic fan fiction, but it's actually a literary novel set in the late 1990s. Or perhaps, because it includes a real plot and a budding romance, it's a mainstream novel with literary leanings. Or maybe, since it features a young female protagonist in a wheelchair, it's chick-lit, disability lit, coming-of-age lit, or -- hell, we don't know what it is, but we're immensely proud to have published it. Come to think of it, a Harley plays a prominent role, so let's call it motorcycle lit.
Miriam tells us she's grateful for her warm welcome by the sci-fi community even though her novel doesn't fit the genre. Now it's up to the Harley community to adopt her as well.
