Misc News From the Summer

In between the book announcement (aaaaaa!) and the alarming number of short story / poetry publications within a month or two of each other, here are a few other things that have happened recently.

  • My Robot Dinosaurs! story, “Research Lab Electricity Usage Timesheet Reporting,” now has an illustration by Kit Leighton! Check out that pair of adorably fearsome little robot raptors.
  • I was interviewed on the podcast Females in Fantasy. Notably, this interview was recorded before the book announcement for THE OUTSIDE went live, so mention of that book does not appear in the podcast, but I do talk about autistic characters quite a lot.
  • My steampunk dinosaur ghost novelette, “The Scrape of Tooth and Bone” will be reprinted in the upcoming anthology Spoon Knife 3: Incursions. Of all the stories I’ve ever published, I would say “The Scrape of Tooth and Bone” has been the one with the most longevity. It made only a very mild splash on its first publication, but every few months when I least expect it, I still see someone unexpectedly mentioning or recommending the story on Twitter – often in the context of recommending their favorite lesbian SF. (I hasten to add, in case any of those people are reading, that the protagonist of THE OUTSIDE and her girlfriend are also lesbians!) I’m pleased to see that its dino-life will continue to extend itself in this form.
