Clarkesworld Magazine celebrated their 5th anniversary over the weekend, and I am honored to be in the anniversary issue–as their first serial and first novella! Both at the same time. CW has published amazing stuff over the years, and in many ways set the bar for online short fiction. I’m proud to have been a part of every one of those years. No other publication has “printed” my stories as regularly–an interesting bit of trivia.
The first part of Silently and Very Fast is available on CW, and with parts two and three to follow in subsequent months. If you just can’t wait, snap up a print copy while you can. It’s limited to 500 copies, and we broke the site with the first day’s orders, so gather ye roses while ye may and all that. (Eee! I broke a website!)
I’m excited to be doing a serial again, excited to have a science fiction novella out, (though I’ve set the countdown for someone telling me it’s not science fiction), excited to have this story, which has been brewing in my head for some years, bouncing around in the world. Please go read! And if you want to discuss it, comment here or on the site.
I am kind of deathly nervous! This is new material for me, the AI landscape, and I hope I have done ok.
