Another Year
Well, this was a hell of a year. 2016 was illuminating on all levels. [I had some specifics here, but I erased them for being too personal. My reticence to talk about myself was definitely one of the things this year illuminated! And yet, here we are.] For that reason, I also find it hard to talk about how grateful I am for the people who read my stuff. I don’t tend to talk about it, because that means acknowledging feelings and if there is one thing my social media… Read more »
"Themis," Starlit Wood, & Other Things I Wrote
I wrote some fiction recently! We’ll start from the top. First, I’m very happy to have a novelette in Clarkesworld’s tenth anniversary issue! “Everyone from Themis Sends Letters Home” is a story about systems of power, also bread. (Also, generally speaking, don’t name your first settlement on a new planet after the personification of long habit, social stasis, and rightful order. That’s asking for trouble.) Second, my story “Familiaris” is in The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales! It’s based on a very interesting Bavarian fairy tale that is extremely concerned… Read more »
Attack on Titan
The Attack on Titan anthology is out today! I was thrilled to be able to participate in this project, which features short stories (including “An Illustrated Guide to the Glorious Walled Cities”) that take place in the wider world of Attack on Titan. The official description: “The manga megahit Attack on Titan, reinterpreted by some of comics’ top talent! Featuring original stories by a long roster of comic superstars such as Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Faith Erin Hicks, Michael Avon Oeming, Paolo Rivera, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr! This unprecedented,… Read more »
Red Carpet Rundown: 2016 Emmys
The marvelous ecosystem of red carpet season has begun again. Every autumn, the gentle crinkle of several thousand square feet of carpet-preserving plastic wrap heralds the annual harvest of actors who return to these grounds every year in hopes of spawning more parts. Lest you think I’m saying any of this to be holier-than-thou, let me assure you, I am serious as hell. It’s amazing to watch the edges of the frame and realize this thing is exactly as complicated as you might have once imagined it to be, only… Read more »
What I Wrote: The Fiscal-Quarter Edition
As always, these posts begin with a note that I am much better about updating my Twitter about current events than I am about updating this blog with them. Some of that is my fault; some of that is because sometimes you read an announcement about a modern-day King Arthur procedural or an article about how to bother a woman wearing headphones and you just have to say something immediately. However, sometimes you just want a nice linkspam that you can use with a header image where you spend way… Read more »
ICON
ICON, the sequel to PERSONA, is officially out in the world! It takes place more or less a year after PERSONA’s assassination attempt on Suyana Sapaki, in which there’s a new, calm, stable status quo…for about five minutes, since the International Assembly is not the kind of crowd you can leave unattended. NPR was very kind (and cracked me up in the middle, for reasons you might guess). And Barnes & Noble was similarly kind: “near-perfect” is the sort of pullquote you dream about. It’s always strange for me to… Read more »
