Selena Chambers

I imbibe words and consume past minds. As a result, I often awake next to strange sentences and forgotten meanings. I am the Bas Bleu Zombie.

Selena Chambers’ fiction and non-fiction have appeared in a variety of venues including MungBeing magazine, Clarkesworld, The Non-Binary Review,, Bookslut, and in recent anthologies such as Cthulhu’s Daughter (Prime Books, 2016), and Cassilda’s Song (Chaosium, 2015). Her work has been nominated for a Pushcart, Best of the Net, the Hugo award, and two World Fantasy awards, including one in 2016 for the story “The Neurastheniac,” included in her debut collection Calls for Submission (Pelekinesis, May 2017).

She is author of two special edition chapbooks from Dunhams Manor Press:  “Of Parallel and Parcel,” and “The Last Session,” as well as the proud mama of “Wandering Spirits: Traveling Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein,” a special limited-edition illustrated and annotated by Yves Tourigny and Tallhat Press.

Writing as S. J. Chambers in 2011, she co-authored the critically-acclaimed and best-selling The Steampunk Bible with Jeff Vandermeer (Abrams Image), as well as served as an Articles Editor for Strange Horizons in 2009, and then as Articles Senior Editor from 2010 through 2011. She has since eschewed the initials.

Speaking of editing, she has just recently guest edited Zoetic Press’s Non-Binary Review’s The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, and is currently editing an anthology with Jason Heller for Hex Publishing named Mechanical Animals, forthcoming in from HEX publishers in 2018.
