Stuff I Wrote in 2014


Ambassador_featuredThis is my first science fiction novel. I babbled about it on John Scalzi’s blog. Kirkus gave it a starred review. The great Héctor Tobar reviewed it for the New York Times. You can find a few sample chapters here.

Short Stories

“The Only Known Law,” Fantasy & Science Fiction, July/August 2014. I chat about the story with C.C. Finlay here.

“Welcome,” Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction & Fantasy Stories, August 2014

Death Comes Sideways to the Mall,” Apex Magazine, March 2014

“The War Between the Water and the Road,” Unstuck #3, February 2014. The Minnesota Center for Book Arts just reprinted this one in an absurdly gorgeous, handmade edition illustrated by Amanda Ritchie, Chan Chau, and Amaya Goldsmith. Here’s a woodblock print of the ghost.

So far the only thing I know about 2015 is that Nomad, the sequel to Ambassador, will be out in September.

Happy New Year, everybody. I hope this next circuit around the sun treats you splendidly.
