Current issues of Analog and Galaxy’s Edge magazines contain my science fiction stories!
“Repairs at the Beijing West Space Elevator” was written for the Future Affairs Administration Lunar festival prompt in late 2017 and originally published in Chinese. Analog has the English language version out now.
“Royalty of Apartment Complex 417” is, at its heart, a YA story, but I think older readers will appreciate it as well. It’s free to read at the Galaxy’s Edge website.

This past Tuesday I had a thyroidectomy performed at Mt. Sinai hospital. They removed half my thyroid and a large goiter that grew from it into the chest under the sternum. This is an outpatient procedure and I was able to go home the same evening, but I’ve been pretty useless and staying off the internet for a few days as I recovered from the surgery The good news is that the procedure went well, and even better news is that the growth they removed was benign. I’m still going to take it easy for a few more days, but at least I feel capable of doing some work on the computer. Which is good timing as I have a number of cool links to share today:
1. Rick Liebling interviewed me at his Medium blog, The Adjacent Possible, about Future SF, translation, and international SF/F. There’s some great content there and I wholeheartedly recommend checking the blog out for more than just my interview. I especially enjoyed this Q&A with Nick Farmer, a linguist for The Expanse TV show.
2. On the Analog blog today there’s an interview with Alvaro Zinos-Amaro and me where we delve a little deeper into our story “The People v Craig Morrison” — this is the second and different post from the one I shared about a month ago, and I truly appreciate Analog giving us so much bandwidth to talk about our writing as well as other stuff we really like!
3. Quick Sips by Charles Payseur has a wonderful and in-depth review of “Copy Cat.” If you haven’t read this quirky story co-written by K. A. Teryna and me, it’s free to read online at Strange Horizons.
4. The kickstarter campaign for Unidentified Funny Objects 7 is ongoing, but we’re falling a bit behind, and even more so due to my lack of promotion and activity this week. Please consider supporting this project and/or sharing it with other interested readers!

The Analog blog features a brief write-up by Alvaro Zinos-Amaro and me about driverless cars, our story “The People v. Craig Morrison,” and a famous Fred Pohl quote.
I’m also extremely pleased to have had another story accepted by Analog this week. “Repairs at the Beijing West Space Elevator” will appear in the magazine sometime in the not-so-distant future, probably in early 2019.

A story I co-wrote with Alvaro Zinos-Amaro is live in the July/August 2018 issue of Analog. While self-driving cars are around the corner, in this story we imagine the social and civil dilemmas that will come up when regulators decide it’s time to get the imperfect, error-prone human drivers off the roads.
You can subscribe to Analog here or pick up a single issue. It’s out as of June 14.
