The new fall TV season is bearing down, so it’s well past time to get caught up on all the summer things
I meant to do.
First, I’ll be traveling to San Francisco the week of 9/13, and am lucky enough to have some free time to do research for a few in-progress writing projects. If you or anyone you know meets any of the following and would be open to a conversation by phone, email, or in person, please let me know! Comment below or you can leave a message on the contact form here.
- working on/studying seawall repair
- familiar with/studying indigenous Pacific cultures’ textiles
- a clerk, manager, or driver for an MMJ dispensary or delivery service
- an MMJ patient prior to 2003 OR someone who used cannabis therapeutically before SB 420 in 1996

Fear the Walking Dead getting underway and I’m recapping the collapse (literal and figurative?) over at The Televixen! The first and second episodes are up now, and the show returns to AMC on the 13th. Will it realize its true potential as a vehicle for the kid who plays Tobias, the best character in the whole thing? I’m guessing not, but we’ll see.
After a brief summer hiatus, my speculative fiction short story column, Beyond the Binary System, will be back later this month on Luna Station Quarterly. There was a ton of great new fiction over the summer, and I can’t wait to share some of it with you there.
Thanks to a weird confluence of a summer illness and remembering that Amazon Video is a thing that exists, I fell face-first into a Veronica Mars rewatch, which will be a new semi-regular column eventually. Lots and lots of thoughts about how successful it was as a mystery, as noir, as a high school drama, as an antihero narrative, &c. More to come with that, or possibly just me standing outside Rob Thomas’s office in a downpour with a poster pleading for more VMars novels? Stay tuned!
