Aqueduct Press announced today that it will publish Adventures in Bodily Autonomy: Exploring Reproductive Rights in Fantasy, Science Fiction, & Horror. One hundred percent of royalties will go to NARAL, Pro-Choice America.

Edited by Raven Belasco, author of the Blood & Ancient Scrolls series, the anthology will feature the work of Kathleen Alcalá, Elizabeth Bear, Raven Belasco, Tara Campbell, Anya De Niro, Jaymee Goh, Cynthia Gralla, K Ibura, Ellen Klages, Annalee Newitz, Nisi Shawl, Cecilia Tan, Sonya Taaffe, Helena María Viramontes, and an introduction by international social justice activist Maggie Mayhem.

World Fantasy Award Winner Elizabeth Lynn says this of the anthology, "So satisfying to read a volume of new speculative fiction stories centered on women's experience, women's lives, women's choices! You'll find a pleasurable variety here: hard sf, fantasy, ghosts, vampires, horror, sweet lyricism, and steel-edged noir--stories from well-known names, and stories from writers you've never encountered before. I guarantee that at least one story in this volume will make you punch the air in triumph, and another will work its way into your dreams, and not let go."

Adventures in Bodily Autonomy will be published on October 16th, 2023, a date important in the history of women's healthcare rights. On October 16, 1916, in Brooklyn, New York, Margaret Sanger opened the country's first birth control clinic. Just nine days later police shut down the clinic and Sanger served 30 days in prison.

For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels--including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and postpartum care, and paid family leave--for every body. NARAL has been at the forefront of this fight for more than 50 years and is powered by its 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.

Aqueduct Press, based in Seattle, Washington, USA, dedicates itself to publishing challenging, feminist science fiction and has published multiple award-winning titles during it's nearly 20 years. Aqueduct Press is dedicated to bringing readers work that will stretch the imagination and stimulate thought. For more information visit our website at
