Taking Stock – 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, I’ve been taking account of my writing over the year. As it stands, I submitted stories 64 times over the year, which is less than last year. I’ve had two acceptances so far in 2017: one was a reprint, podcasted at The Overcast; the.

My New Story, Iago v2.0 Is Now Up at Nature

As mentioned earlier this week, my story, Iago v2.0 is now up at Nature. I have wanted to write something like this ever since Facebook was found to be conducting emotional contagion experiments on users. However, the moment passed, and Facebook was able to paper over or dismiss any worries.

My Second Acceptance at Nature: Futures

Curious Fictions is Featuring My Story Today

My story, “Every Orphan Child To a Good Home Should Go” is featured over at Curious Fictions. Curious Fictions is a great site, with a rather large repository of short stories, all reprinted in one place. If you didn’t catch my story about a fairy godmother trying to find the.

I have friends and family in Puerto Rico. This is going to be an angry post, and it’s going to cover some ugly truths about US politics as it pertains to Puerto Rico. If you think that staying silent in the face of injustice is patriotic, this post isn’t for.

My story, “Every Orphan Child to a Good Home Should Go” will be produced and podcasted by The Overcast in September. I’m glad to have it reach a wider crowd. I’ll post the link as soon as it becomes available. At the moment, I have been working on translating one.

The 2017 Nebulas Conference

I went to the SFWA 2017 Nebulas Conference in Pittsburgh over the weekend with fellow writers Chris M. Rose, Jeremy Gottwig, and Doug Dluzen. It was the first time for all of us, going to the Nebulas. What followed was four days of socializing with other writers and editors in.

What Have I Been Enjoying Lately?

Earlier this week, I rattled off a very brief post talking about Sylvia Moreno GarcĂ­a’s efforts at capturing Latin Americans in SFF. I may decide to write more about this at some later date, but for now I wanted to go over the things I’ve been enjoying recently. Fleabag I.

Thank you, Sylvia Moreno Garcia

On her blog, Sylvia has started to list Latinx authors in English Language SFF. I’m glad she decided to start this project, since I’ve written about this before. If you have any favorite authors, feel free to fill out the form included.

“Fahrenheit 451” and the Problems of A Single Story

A few nights ago, I took to Twitter to respond to all those articles I’ve seen urging people to read George Orwell’s “1984” (or, alternately, “A Brave New World“). To which I said–and continue to say–“Hey, great books!” However, for me the book to study is Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.”.
