What I Had Published in 2013

With just a handful of days left in the year, it seems safe to put up a definitive “here’s what I had published in 2013” list. It was by far, my single best year in terms of both numbers of things published, and variety of markets.


  • “The Negative Impact of Climate Change on the Unusual Beasts of the World,” Analog (July/August 2013)
  • “Flipping the Switch,” Beyond the Sun, ed. by Bryan Thomas Schmidt, Fairwood Press, August 2013


  • “Hat Tips to the Masters: Homage in SF/F,” Lightspeed Magazine (February 2013)
  • “Surfing the Prime Radiant,” Blue Shift Magazine (May 2013)
  • “Editorial: Gem Hunting,” Analog (June 2013)
  • What I Did on My Summer Vacation,” Clarkesworld (November 2013)

I’ll be the first to admit that the nonfiction surprised me. I hadn’t ever really considered it before, and then this year, the opportunities just presented themselves so it worked out well.

So far, 2014 is looking pretty good. I’ve made one sale, a science fiction story that will appear sometime next year. And I have a second story still outstanding. I’ve got another story going out on January 1, and if I can finish this novelette, that will add to the pile. I definitely feel like my fiction writing–and in particular, my storytelling–has improved significantly over the last year. I have some ideas on why this might be, but I will save that for another post.
