I already unveiled this on Twitter and Tumblr yesterday, but allow me to also do so here: I've semi-launched an episodic fiction horror podcast called Gone. I absolutely love horror/thriller/mystery podcasts - TANIS, The Black Tapes, Alice Isn't Dead, Limetown, and Rabbits, just to name a few that I've been into. I already do a... Continue Reading →
New stuff from me
YES, because it's been a while. And these have actually been out for a while. But I swear, I'm developing an aversion to updating this damn thing. ANYWAY. Here's what they are: Shape Without Form, Shade Without Color (Tor.com) This is a weird, dreamlike, not very clearly explained piece of darkness. It's also heavily autobiographical,...

my #WisCon41 schedule!
I'm super excited about this lineup, lemmetellya. Plus, the panel on shipping? Yeah, thanks to my experience of TWD fandom, I'm gonna have some feelings to express there. I'll also have copies of my short fiction collection, and both Labyrinthian and Long Hidden, both of which are now sadly out of print. But you can... Continue Reading →
omg heart eyes
I've posted this in a few other places, but here, take a gander at the cover art for "Shape Without Form, Shade Without Color", coming at the end of this month from Tor.com: RIGHT??? This is one of those stories that's incredibly personal in some ways - I've never been assaulted by evil starlings, but... Continue Reading →
Long Hidden: get it now (while you still can)!
OKAY LISTEN UP FOLKS A few years back, I was massively honored to have a story of mine included in an anthology called Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History. It’s an absolutely beautiful book, and it includes stories from people like Sofia Samatar, Sarah Pinsker, Nnedi Okorafor, Ken Liu, Tananarive Due, and... Continue Reading →
My 2016 award-eligible stuff and things
As I said in the post previous to this one, there frankly wasn't a lot. But there was some. Here it is. Short stories "Are You Sure What Side You're On" in Lamplight, September "A Perdition of Salt" in Singing With All My Skin and Bone, my debut short fiction collection "The Throat is Deep...

2016: a year in… well, it was a year
This is the time around about when people are making their year-end posts, wrapping up what they've done and written and sold and published, and honestly I've been swinging back and forth between not making one of those posts at all and simply putting it off until I end up not making one of those...

I just wrote a terse email to the NPR Politics Podcast, and I figured I'd share. Yeah, this is ostensibly an author blog. It's also a blog, and I have a feeling that I'm going to be writing a lot of terse communiques over the next four years. The thing about the NPR Politics Podcast... Continue Reading →
Happy OcTOBLERfest-Halloween – with fungi!
I'm really happy that I was able to take part in this month-long extravaganza celebrating one of my very favorite writers - and also someone who's become a friend and a major emotional support during some difficult times. I frankly don't think she gets nearly as much recognition as she deserves, so this is quite... Continue Reading →
Podcasts what I love
So once again it's been a while. THINGS. Things happening. Including a new job - and being a sociologist TAing for a law class is interesting, let me tell you. Anyway, something else I've been doing a lot lately is listening to podcasts. They're honestly a lot of what's helping me hold my shit together.... Continue Reading →
