Vulturism
I have an essay in the latest issue of Interfictions! “Vulturism” is about vintage photo collecting, losing your memory, being kind of an asshole, and Marion. I had a longer intro here, but the essay itself is personal enough. Let’s not make things more awkward than they need to be.… Read more »
Catwoman 35: "Comfort to the Hurt of the King"
It’s my first comic book day ever. CATWOMAN #35, “Comfort to the Hurt of the King,” is in stores now! It’s been sort of a surreal process; I got the first call about the opportunity from Mark Doyle at the beginning of the year, and after I got the gig came the plotting and planning and arcs and character sketches and some historical research because why not? before I ever sat down and began my first script, and since then it’s been costume references and more plotting and more writing… Read more »
Short Fiction Update
So in addition to Dream Houses, the novella that will be premiering at Capclave, I have a few stories (and a reprint) that will be available in October! Either they’re already out and I’ve missed them, or they’re on their way shortly. I’m collecting them here because there’s no way I will remember to do so otherwise. Earlier this year I participated in two Kickstartered anthology projects. First: Neil Clarke’s Upgraded, which should be available now in physical and e-editions! My story, “Small Medicine,” is a standalone story, but shares… Read more »
Capclave and Dream Houses
A couple of announcements! First, if I have not announced it already: I’ll be a Guest of Honor at Capclave this October, alongside Holly Black and Paolo Bacigalupi! The convention is the weekend of October 10. When not heckling Holly from the audience of whatever panels she’s doing, I hope to be talking about movies, TV, writing as a day job, and whatever else they decide to ask me and/or I can’t stop talking about. I’ll also have a special project on sale there: my first-ever novella, DREAM HOUSES. It… Read more »
Dual Garmenture
I have an article up at The Toast today! “‘I don’t think I’ll venture on dual garmenture': Rational Dress and the Politics of Biking” discusses pretty much what it says on the tin, including rib-crunching, satirical poetry, seltzer sponsorship, and Aesthetic Dress as the theater kids. Research for this was delightful. Above are two of my favorite political cartoons and two of my favorite advertisements on the subject, at the far ends of the cultural response to Victorian biking costume: Terror that those ladies would go getting newfangled ideas in… Read more »
Readercon and a Fiction Update
It’s Friday and I foolishly agreed to let a friend come stay with me, which means I’m screencapping Merlin: Book of Beasts in giant bursts in between desperately trying to cram all my horrible mess into a cartoon closet. Someday soon I will try cataloging some of the Musketeers’ most priceless facial expressions, but today’s not that day. Fiction update instead! First up, amid everyone’s Readercon schedules, this seems as good a time as any to mention I’ll unfortunately be missing Readercon this year due to a family obligation. The… Read more »
