Preordering Upgraded

Preorders are now available for the trade paperback and ebook editions of UPGRADED, which will be released next month!

Trade Paperback


UPGRADED is on the truck…

I’ve just been informed by my printer that UPGRADED shipped yesterday and should be arriving at my house early next week! Bookstores won’t have it until late September, but I’ll start mailing copies to our Kickstarter supporters next week.

Kickstarter Panel

Just before Worldcon, I had the opportunity to travel to Kickstarter headquarters and participate in a discussion on short fiction. They’ve published the video from our panel:

A quick contest…

I’ve been given copies of:

Echopraxia by Peter Watts


The Ultra Thin Man by Patrick Swenson

to give away to a lucky reader living in the United States or Canada. (No internationals this time, sorry. I’m not the one shipping them.)

This time, I’m doing a Twitter-based contest. To enter, simply tweet the name and a link to your favorite Clarkesworld story with the hashtag #readclarkesworld  (NOTE: retweeting someone’s entry does not enter you in the contest)

Friday morning (8/8), I’ll pick a single winner and they’ll receive both books.
