Libia Brenda is an editor, writer and translator. She has been involved in many independent projects, most of which are about sci-fi, speculative, and fantastic literature (she considers herself very nerdy). She writes speculative fiction short stories and has been published in online and print magazines, as well as various anthologies. Her work has been translated from Spanish to English and Italian. She is one of the the co-founders of the Cúmulo de Tesla collective, a multidisciplinary working group that promotes the dialogue between the arts and sciences, with a special focus on science fiction. In 2018, she was part of The Mexicanx Initiative, an endeavour led by John Picacio. She became the first Mexican woman to be nominated for a Hugo Award, for the anthology A Larger Reality/Una realidad más amplia attached to a project about said initiative. After that, she was so excited that she edited a hybrid and bilingual sci-fi project: A Larger Reality 2.0, an anthology that is also a videogame (MUD style) and can be download and played, for free, here: http://alargerreality.mx/2019/ She is currently the guest-editor for a Mexico Special Issue for Strange Horizons (to be published November 2020): http://strangehorizons.com/non-fiction/azimuth/mexico-special-call-for-submissions/
