Try Catch Throw in Nature Magazine

screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-10-25-08-amNature Magazine is known for its science articles, but it also has an innovative and fun Science Fiction page in each issue called Nature Futures. They were kind enough to purchase my story “Try Catch Throw” and it appeared in early September, featured in their Science Fiction issue. They did a great job with it, and not only does it appear as a story, but they commissioned a graphic treatment and a video version.

Novella Aquired by Tor.com

I’m delighted to announce that Carl Engle-Laird at Tor.com has aquired the novella, The Ghost Line, co-written by myself and J.S. Herbison.

The Ghost Line is the story of Saga and her husband Michel, adventurers and artists who craft haunting interactives in the ruins of abandoned spacecraft and habitats littered around the solar system. When they take on a job to break into a mothballed luxury liner that’s been orbiting between Earth and Mars for years, they imagine it will just be another gig. A chance to earn a little money before journeying to Earth to start a family. But their employer has a hidden agenda, and the liner is not as abandoned as it seems. Something long-hidden is about to wake up.

Story in IGMS

Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show (Issue 51) has just published “Mathematical Certainty” – a story of mine about being lost, and found, in the Asteroid belt. About the loneliness of prospecting and the potential for human connection in the most unusual of circumstances.
