Monday, April 8, 2013Quick Update
Just a reminder that I'll be appearing as part of the TIFF Science on Film series at the Bell Lightbox in Toronto. This should be a fun event: the classic SF film Forbidden Planet on screen, following which I'll be interviewed by the Discovery Channel's Jay Ingram. Check out the link for details. (The theme is the future of technology, and while the film's iconic future tech thingie is of course Robbie the Robot -- Asimovian inhibitions and all that jazz -- I'm actually more interested in the back story of the Krell. There are some really pertinent and interesting questions there about the ultimate purpose of technology there . . . questions that resound a little differently in 2013 than they did in 1953.)
Otherwise: Burning Paradise is scheduled for early November of this year, and The Affinities is coming along nicely. Look for my story "Fireborn" in both Rich Horton's and Gardner Dozois's Best of the Year anthologies. And if you like, you can follow me on Facebook.
