It's starting to ship now, so I can finally announce: I have a short (very short) story in the January issue of Wired Magazine! It's part of an SF feature and the other writers are Charlie Jane Anders, Ken Liu, Nisi Shawl, Laurie Penny, Charles Yu, and Adam Rodgers. It's sort of a short Murderbot Diaries prequel.

I'm pretty stoked about it. :)

Woot!!!! That is very cool news. I mean, peak coolness! I will certainly pick up a copy. I'll put it on my coffee table and casually mention my fave author has a story in it.

I used to work down the street from WiReD in South Park when it was just a babyface, and I ate lunch there all the time with my buds to talk techy things (I was right smack in the middle of the browser wars as I contracted for Netscape during the dHTML versus the IE DOM model feud, so they liked to pick my brain). I was always jelly of WiReD's hot pink ethernet cords strung up along the conduits. I mean how brand committed do you have to be to order hot pink ethernet cords??? Well, I was also jelly of their T3, but who doesn't love fat bandwidth.

Sorry, sidetrack. Anyway, suffice to say I think you are the coolest cool thing. :) Congrats.

Congrats! That's a great (and well deserved) cohort :)

Just saw Muderbot's hardcover be announced on the Tor newsletter. You know you've made it when they create a hardcover AFTER the paperback :)

Can't wait to tell my DH about it! He'll be pretty stoked having binge-read all four Murderbot novellas this week. He's bugging me to start so he can talk about them without spoiling me.
