Steal the Sky is receiving reviews! One, two, and three so far. One of which called me "saltier than most beginners", and another begins with the words "Holy shjtballz". Needless to say, I'm delighted! The book is up on NetGalley, for those of you who are so inclined.
Also, my short story "Of Blood and Brine" has appeared on the SFWA's Nebula recommended reading list! The reading list can be found here. And you can read "Of Blood and Brine" for free at Shimmer Zine, or listen to it for free at PodCastle.
This month has been a uphill battle to find writing time vs. Blushie time. But one thing I've found that's particularly cool this month is this timeline of food: link. I find it pretty interesting to see where in human history foods came into play, especially considering how heavily certain spices affected the trajectory of empires. Did you know fried ice cream was first invented in 1802?
A Story Recommendation
The Lifecycle of Software Objects by Ted Chiang. It's a long one, but so very worth it - especially if AI rights are of interest to you.
