Unexpectedly another thing of mine for you to read while I pack: this blog post on the Analog website is about the novelette I have in the current issue of Analog (“Left to Take the Lead”) and also about tornadoes and rebuilding and healing and community: https://theastoundinganalogcompanion.com/2018/08/07/it-all-comes-around-again/
I leave this evening for Copenhagen. Among other things while I’m getting ready to go, here’s my latest essay in Uncanny Magazine, https://uncannymagazine.com/article/the-seduction-of-numbers-the-measures-of-progress/ –“The Seduction of Numbers, the Measures of Progress.” Go, read, enjoy!
I’m on the Analog blog today, talking about parents, kids, and cryovolcanoes–and why Science Is For All Of Us! And, of course, about my story in the current issue of Analog, “Finding Their Footing.”
Today you can read a new story by me in Nature Futures, My Favourite Sentience. I’ve adjusted the spelling of the title because the characters in it are in fact British, and their teacher would mark them down if they spelled it the American way! So many sentiences to choose from….
There’s also a writing of the story blog post, but obviously read the story itself first.
My story from Reckoning issue 2, The Shale Giants, is now available online. Go, read, enjoy!
Today I have an essay out in Uncanny Magazine, Hard Enough. I want it to be an invitation, a permission slip…a bunch of things. You can see for yourself, since it’s right there to read.
Today Fireside Magazine has published my new story, Flow. It’s got a lavish Galen Dara illustration that I was completely not expecting, so that’s a bonus.
This one was very personal for me, and I’m so glad to have found the right magazine home to be able to share it with all of you.
The second half of Uncanny’s Issue 20 is now available for free on the internet, and with it my story, Lines of Growth, Lines of Passage! Or if you’d prefer to get your fiction through another medium, it’s also on their podcast, along with an interview I did with editor Lynne Thomas. Marvel as we wrestle the technology! Gape in awe as I attempt to minimize my Minnesota accent for listener comprehension! etc.! Anyway just go enjoy the story, however you enjoy it. It’s got iron giants and cherry trees, and it came about because I was messing around on twitter with my hoodlum friends, what more could you want.
I have a story out in the Jan/Feb issue of Analog, now in bookstores etc. The story is “Two Point Three Children,” about artificial intelligence, parenting, and the legal system. Go, read, enjoy!
I also made my first sale of the year to…Analog! So that’s a fun combination of timing.
