Yet again Flame Tree Press has put out a gorgeous new book full of swashbuckling, steam-punky adventures and alt-historical tales. My story, Fire To Set The Blood, is about a female doctor (who also happens to be a witch) called out to solve a mystery in a dying, CA gold rush town.
Got this in the mail. While it’s certainly exciting to see my story, Skitter & Click, in this beautiful book, the most exciting part about this is my name right there between Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle.
I cannot wait to see this film, Ixcanul, which roughly translates to, “the internal force of the mountain which is boiling and looking for eruption,” in Kaqchikel Mayan. In fact the entire film is in Kaqchikel, written and directed by Jayro Bustamante who is 1/4 Maya. Even though about 60% of Guatemala’s population is Maya, Maya stories are rarely told, especially not on the big screen.
So far it has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes critics rating, which is kind of amazing!
I’m incredibly pleased to announce that my short story, Skitter & Click, will be appearing soon in this gorgeous anthology, Crime & Mystery!
Flame Tree press makes amazingly beautiful books and I couldn’t be more chuffed that my story will be appearing next to stories by luminaries like Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack London, Edgar Allan Poe, and Mark Twain as well as some amazing new writers like Tony Pi, Sylvia Spruck Wrigley, Dan Stout, and Ruth Nestvold.
My flash piece, Little Galaxies, went up on Daily Science Fiction!
Recent archaeological work near Mexico City shows that conquistadors were imprisoned, sacrificed, and eaten by the Aztecs.
“The town was eventually renamed from Zultepec to Tecoaque, which in the native Nahuatl language means: “The place where they ate them.””
This is not the narrative we learn about the conquest of the Americas….
A new study from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands has proven that “two previously entangled particles, even if separated by the width of the universe, could instantly communicate.”
How, how can this happen?! I mean I have a very basic grasp of quantum physics, but locality seems so fundamental to my concept of the universe I just can’t wrap my head around this. So many possibilities…
Some quick writing news. I sold a short story to Daily Science Fiction AND I am a finalist in the Writers of the Future contest!!!
So wow, kind of blown away and excited.
This documentary looks amazing, very excited to watch Tomorrow We Disappear when it’s released.
“Hidden away in the alleyways of New Delhi is the Kathputli Colony, India’s last home to magicians, acrobats, and puppeteers.
