I'm a YA author who spends too much time on the internet.

support the KGB

The monthly KGB Fantastic Fiction readings are a staple of the New York City SF scene, which has featured authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Lucius Shepard, Jeffrey Ford, Scott Westerfeld, Kelly Link, China MiĆ©ville and others. Attendance is free, but running it isn’t–hosts Ellen Datlow and Matt Kressel must buy drinks and dinner for their esteemed guests. Last year they organized a raffle to support the series, and since it was such a success, they’re doing it again: beginning tonight at midnight (EST), in fact.

This year’s raffle offers many and varied prizes, including a keyboard from Neil Gaiman, a wormhole from physicist Michio Kaku, critiques on short story and novel queries, and much more–all generously donated by well-known authors, agents, editors, and artists. (My writing group, Altered Fluid, is offering a short story critique.) Tickets are only $1 and can be purchased at from October 11, 2010 through midnight EST on October 25, 2010. Please read the press release and rules here and go here to view the complete list of fantastic prizes and purchase raffle tickets.

launching two new sites

Happy Friday! This is the inaugural post in my new personal website and blog,, as well as the launch of something else I’ve been working on for a while:

The Viewscreen is the new home of the popular Star Trek Re-Watch. Torie Atkinson and I are starting things off with the first episode of Season 3 of the original series: “Spock’s Brain.” That’s right, we watched it so you don’t have to–but we hope you’ll re-watch it anyway, read our review, and comment on it. Then stick around because we’re working on a “Spock’s Brain”-related treat in the coming weeks (curious, aren’t you?), and we’ll be continuing our re-watch of the final TV voyages of the starship Enterprise. Please spread the word–we’ve put a lot of work into this site, and we’re really proud of it.
