Futures, Options, and Swaps (the weblog of Alan DeNiro)

Later that year…

I’ve been a bad blogger but I’ve been busy! Very busy. Things have been germinating, things have been transcribed. It’s also been a month of soul searching and some measure of tranquility, which can’t be attributed (either way) from writing, from a good or ill perspective. But I still am writing, hither and tither.

In writerly news:

+I have a story coming out in Asimov’s sometime in the spring, called “Walking Stick Fires.” It’s solidly in the nascent tradition (or “tradition”) of infernokrusher fiction. (BTW, where is the original infernokrusher post on the Wayback Machine?)

+I’ll be visiting my alma mater The College of Wooster in a couple of weeks from the 27th to the 29th. I’ll be reading at Tuesday at 4…somewhere in Kauke Hall. Which will likely be completely unrecognizable to me. Needless to say this is a thrilling and humbling experience for me, to go back where I cut my teeth. I think it’s hard to overestimate how…uncouth and needlessly precocious I was when I ventured to C.O.W., and the place really gave me the tools I needed to write and think and be a better human being. I’ll also be at several classes, and teaching two master classes on speculative fiction.

+I’m also reading at Magers & Quinn in Uptown Minneapolis on October 8 at 7:30, with Adam Golaski and John Cotter.

+The kind folks at Parking Lot Confessional did an interview of me which just came out-thoughtful questions afoot!

Be good, people.
