2017 Year-End Summary

Despite it being a turbulent year politically, I was still able to accomplish quite a bit, writing-wise. I published five stories last year, four original, in Tor.com, Lightspeed, Nightmare, Mad Hatters and March Hares, and Hex Publishers. I’ve had two stories translated, one into French and one into Polish. I sold four stories, one of which I co-wrote with Mercurio D. Rivera and will be appearing in a future issue of Analog. And one of my stories has been selected for a special anthology that I’m super excited to announce, but can’t just quite yet.

I did quite a lot, non-fiction wise too. I appeared on a panel with astronaut Mike Massimino at the BRITE conference at Columbia University to speak about A.I., robotics, and how science fiction anticipates the future of human-machine interaction. And I wrote a bunch of articles, did a bunch of interviews, and participated in podcasts about Blade Runner 2049, including an appearance on Geeks Guide to the Galaxywhose lede page introducing the podcast was shared almost 50,000 times.

Before I sat down to write this post I thought to myself, Boy, you didn’t really accomplish much last year. I guess that’s because when you are down in the trenches, so to speak, working on this and that, sales and successes seem irrelevant to just finishing the work. It’s only when you pause and look back that you can see how far you’ve actually gone. One thing I’ve learned in my long and winding career as a writer is that you just need to keep your head down and write. Everything else eventually works itself out.

Anyway, 2017 was a pretty good year, writing and life-wise, for me, and I’m hoping this year will be even better. I have a young-adult novel I’m nearly done with, and a few short stories in the pipe I hope to have out in the wild soon. Here’s wishing you and yours much success and happiness in 2018.

Story Sale to Analog Science Fiction and Fact

I’m happy to announce some good news for the new year. Mercurio D. Rivera and I co-authored a story called “The Walk to Distant Suns” which has been sold to Analog Science Fiction & Fact. The premise: Shandi Pallai is a wormhole engineer who works aboard a space station, helping people migrate off the dying Earth to a new, better planet. She’s been saving up to migrate to the new world with her family and her sick, dying mother. But when the corporation raises the price of transit, Shandi decides to take things into her own hands.

The story will be out sometime later this year.

 


“The Sounds of Old Earth” out in Polish Today
