I’m back from Boston! I had a lovely time going to Readercon and writing and seeing friends and riding back and forth on the T and wandering up and down Mass Ave. I am now convinced that wandering up and down Mass Ave is a substantial part of what you do in Boston. Things are there. Also, every time you come out of the Harvard T, there is Greer Gilman, so it is written and so it must be.
But other, less eternal things are written, and you can read them! Such as this interview about my story in the July/August issue of F&SF. Interview with me! Things you might want to know! or maybe not, but there it is anyway.
I answered these interview questions in the spring, and one of the things they’re showing me now is that life moves fast. Well. I knew that. And if it’s going to move fast and smell all right while it goes, I’d better get a load of laundry in. More, much more, soon, now that I’m home for awhile.
- The issue of F&SF with my story “An Unearned Death” in it is available now! You can get it from SF Site for paper copies and subscriptions or from Weightless Books for the ebook version. Mine is the July/August issue, although they have many fine issues also available for you. There’ll be a blog post coming up on their site, so stay tuned for the links on that.
- Yesterday I came home from my New York trip to find that I sold a story, “Flow,” to Fireside Fiction! More word on when that comes out when we collectively know more, but I’m really proud of this one and happy to be working with Fireside for the first time.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled running around trying to get all the things done.
I have a story out in Nature today, Running Safety Tips for Humans. Go, read, enjoy! And when you’re done with that, they’ve asked me to do a blog post on the story behind the story.
I have a space salvage story, “Vulture’s Nest,” in the May/June 2017 issue of Analog. Go, read, enjoy!
I have a new story out today at Daily Science Fiction: Vervain, Grasshopper, Sun. Like all of DSF’s offerings, it’s quite short, so it won’t take you long to go, read, and enjoy!
Or maybe you weren’t looking, but–you’ve found it anyway! The Hand of Loki is out today in New Myths. Go, read, enjoy!
Today you can read my latest story with Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Out of the Woods. Or, and for once I am keeping track of this appropriately, you can listen to the podcast of the same story, narrated by Folly Blaine.
This is my post-Robin Hood story that is informed by growing up with Astrid Lindgren’s Ronia the Robber’s Daughter. Go, read, enjoy!
Your vocabulary word for the day is psittaculture: the care and raising of parrots and parrot-related species.
This is relevant because my short story The Psittaculturist’s Lesson is now live at Daily Science Fiction. Go, read, enjoy!
My essay How Far Are We From Minneapolis? is live at Reckoning. This is very personal for me, talking about nature and disability. I hope you enjoy it.
I was also interviewed by another Reckoning author, Johannes Punkt, about this piece. The interview went live today, and you can read it here.
I have a story out in the Jan/Feb issue of Analog, my first short story of the year. It’s called “Drifting Like Leaves, Falling Like Acorns,” and it’s got companion frogs and genetically engineered flying squirrel people and much weirder stuff than I’ve had in Analog before.
Also it goes with “Uncle Flower’s Homecoming Waltz” and “The Ministry of Changes” and “Surfacing” and “The Dust Gate” and “The Salt Path,” all of those. The folder with those stories in it is called “postnuclear fantasy,” but that’s not really specific enough that other people will know which ones I mean. Anyone who has read them and has suggestions for a series title, setting title, group title, whatever, please comment or email me. I’d appreciate any help I could get on that front.
