The March issue of Lightspeed Magazine is now available, and my story “Welcome to the Medical Clinic at the Interplanetary Relay Station, Hours Since the Last Patient Death: 0” is the cover story!
The cool cover art is by Reiko Murakami.
Also in this issue of Lightspeed: Christie Yant did an interview with me, to go along with the story. We cover allergy shots, SF tropes, and writing advice. (The interview talks briefly about the story, so I recommend reading the story first.)

The cover story for my collection, “Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World,” made it onto the Locus Recommended Reading List! Really thrilled to have my story listed with a bunch of other top-notch work. A lot of what I’ve already read from the list has been awesome, and I’m looking forward to checking out some of the stories and books that I hadn’t seen yet.
2015 Locus Recommended Reading List
36 stories published:
1 short story collection
14 original stories
1 non-fiction essay
13 new stories written (45k words*)
* I don’t track my daily wordcount, so my yearly wordcount is based only on finished stories. My actual wordcount is probably somewhat higher. But definitely not high enough. Generating more words is really something that I need to work on for next year.
Year in Review
2015 has been big for me in a lot of ways. I had 23 original stories out this … Continue reading
The table of contents has been announced, so I can share that my story “Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World” is going to be included in Neil Clarke’s Best Science Fiction of the Year. I’m so excited to be a part of this book, alongside many of my favorite authors!
My story “Birthday Child” is up at Daily Science Fiction. This is my last story of the year, and brings my total publications for 2015 up to 23, which is the most I’ve ever had in one year!
Tina Connolly and I co-wrote a novelette titled “We Will Wake Among the Gods, Among the Stars,” and it’s out in the current issue of Analog!
This is my first time appearing in Analog, and Tina’s first time in the magazine as well. Really happy that we broke into the market together :)
This has been kind of an amazing year for me, and I have 23 original stories out (8 short stories and 15 flash). My favorite, if you’re looking for a place to start, is Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World.
The other story of mine that has been getting a lot of buzz (including a tweet from Wil Wheaton!) is Rock, Paper, Scissors, Love, Death.
Here’s the complete list:
Ninety-Five Percent Safe (Jan 2015, Asimov’s)
Temporary Friends (Escape Pod, Artemis Rising, February 2015)
Four Seasons in the Forest of … Continue reading
I have an original story out today at Lightspeed Magazine, a time travel love story called “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Love, Death.” You can read it for free at: http://www.lightspeedmagazine.com/fiction/rock-paper-scissors-love-death/
In an odd coincidence, my OTHER time travel love story “Beneath the Willow Branches, Beyond the Reach of Time” is out as a (reprint) podcast at StarShipSofa today: http://www.starshipsofa.com/blog/2015/11/17/starshipsofa-no-411-caroline-m-yoachim-and-tricia-glock/
Katherine Inskip does a lovely reading of the story. This story is an older one of mine (I originally wrote … Continue reading
So I’ve seen a lot of discussion about what the redesigned WFC Award ought to look like, and I figured I’d throw out my suggestion: Let’s make it a book.
It could be an open book, with a different artist each year illustrating the pages (much like the hugo base is different each year). It could be a closed book, simple and elegant, with information about the year and whatever else where the title would go. It could be a bunch of books that twirl up in a precarious stack.
Because what writer wouldn’t love to go to WFC and … Continue reading
