I have a new piece up at Lawrence M. Schoen’s Eating Authors series. The question was about my most memorable meal, and while I found it very hard to winnow that down, I wrote about my memories of convenience stores in Japan while working on the response to the 2011 tsunami.
The third centenal cycle novel is officially on its way!
“Now is a vital (and fascinating) time to be writing about democracy, information, and the responsibility of institutions, so I’m thrilled to be writing book three in the Centenal Cycle. Like Infomocracy and Null States, the third book shows us a future world that offers new ideas in governance while giving us a different perspective on the times we are living through.”
I talk Infomocracy with Eliot Peper at the Chicago Review of Books!
Infomocracy has made another Best Books of 2016, this one from BookRiot! The whole list is excellent, so make sure you read through it. I’m honored to see Infomocracy in this company!
Infomocracy is getting mentioned on a slew of Best of 2016 lists, including Kirkus’ Best Fiction of 2016, Barnes and Noble Best Science Fiction & Fantasy of 2016, and The Washington Post Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2016!
I have a new piece up at Tor.com today about how I got the idea for micro-democracy and what it says about our democratic systems – another great read for election day!
In case you need some election day reading, I talked to The Rumpus about democracy, science fiction, and termite enchiladas!
