Writing Catchup (and Sleepy Karaoke)
Okay, time for another news roundup! First, some fiction updates: my short story “A Dweller in Amenty” has been longlisted/preliminary balloted for the Stoker! And thanks to the Book smugglers writing over at Kirkus, there’s a lovely review of my novella, Dream Houses. Over at Strange Horizons, I’m also in good company, as I’ve been listed as Favorite Columnist, for which I’m grateful – thanks so much to everyone who voted! I appreciate anyone who’s willing to sit through a year’s worth of those titles. This year, I’m going to… Read more »
PERSONA: Meet Suyana Sapaki
Miss Universe is this weekend. The contestants have already gathered to play extremely awkward rounds of golf, smile blandly into the cameras during spa treatments, and perform in the comedy gold that is the National Costume Contest. There’s also a swimsuit competition, because of course there is. If you’ll notice, no matter what contestant you click on, you’ll get three seconds with them. Then it moves on every three seconds to somebody new, standing in front of a pool or leaning seductively against a tree trunk or posed in front… Read more »
Merry Workmas and a Happy New Year
It’s already more than halfway through the beginning of 2015, somehow, I guess! Hilariously, my vague resolution was to find time to relax. Next year my resolution will be to cut the shit about self-improvement. In related news, here’s a roundup of recent work.… Read more »
Catwoman Annual
The Catwoman Annual comes out today! It’s written by me, with art by Patrick Olliffe, Tom Nguyen & John McCrea, and a Garry Brown cover. And yes, there’s some Batman in this issue. (One scene with him is a favorite moment of the issue, actually – a Batman/Catwoman standoff that’s about 110% awkward, a saturation that can only be achieved when Batman’s around.) But at the risk of spoilers, at heart this Annual is Eiko Hasigawa’s origin story: it offers a glimpse of her life as an increasingly nontraditional member… Read more »
What I Wrote This Year
This year has been a remarkably fast one. It’s been a busy one, for which I’m immensely grateful, but turns out it’s taken with it both my short and long-term memories; the process of assembling this roundup was, frankly, embarrassing. My Actor Bingo on period pieces remains undiminished, but that’s pretty much the only thing that has survived intact in the abstract-impressionism painting of this year. (My vow for next year, to slow down a little, has already been made; turns out that was also my vow last year, which… Read more »
Checklist.
[Content warning: rape.] Rape victims: This is an important time in your life. With so many details to attend to, here’s a checklist to make sure you’re not missing out. If you report, remember to make it to the hospital immediately for a rape kit that will never be tested in the backlog of thousands. If you’re injured, drive carefully. If you’re drunk or have been drugged, ask a friend for a lift, assuming the friend isn’t the person who raped you. After the rape kit, find and speak to… Read more »
