…I realize how pathetic a plea that sounds, but in this case it’s legitimate nomenclature. On Monday 28 April, I’ll be doing a Google+ hangout with some of my Angry Robot Books cohort: Ramez Naam, Wesley Chu, and Cassandra Rose Clarke. We’ll be discussing 21st century science fiction. You should come hang out with us. […]
And it’s at io9! (Along with a little essay about the Singularity.) If you’d like to pre-order the book, you can do so here. All credit goes to the amazingly talented Erik Mohr, who normally works for ChiZine Publications but went to the dark side for me and Angry Robot Books. I’ve wanted an Erik […]
This year has already been pretty busy, in terms of my foresight work. In January, I ran a workshop at a Day Zero event for Engineers Without Borders Canada AGM. That same month, editors started contacting me about including my story Social Services, which I wrote for an Institute for the Future anthology on the […]
I’m late posting this, but I’m honoured to be a guest of the 2014 Toronto SpecFic Colloqium. The theme this year is “Unnatural Histories,” and I’ll be getting a lot more personal than I usually do. More to come.

This Black Friday marks the advent of SFContario 4, where I will be a panelist (among many others). Here is my schedule, for anyone who may be interested. Saturday, 11:00am, Ballroom BC: “No, I’m Hero Support.” Good sidekicks aren’t just ciphers. They have back-stories that may be as rich as the main character’s. A good […]
Recently, Angry Robot announced something I’ve known about for quite a while now: I’m writing a book called Company Town, set apart from the Machine Dynasty series. It’s about an escorts’ escort named Hwa, who takes a job bodyguarding the young heir to a family-run corporate energy empire, just as that empire colonizes Hwa’s hometown: […]
So, this happened. I went to the Kingston WritersFest, where I was on a panel with Margaret Atwood and Corey Redekop. It was a really fun panel, but I felt kind of embarrassed about how I fumbled through my reading. Also, I didn’t sell very many books. Given that my publisher helped send me there, […]
And I will be on on a panel with Margaret Atwood and Corey Redekop. So if you’re in the Kingston area around the end of September, please do come and see us. Here is my profile, if you are at all interested.
It’s true! You can buy it here without issue. Enjoy. The reviews seem to say that you might. Tor.com liked it: The world that Ashby envisions is fascinating, filled with strange ideas, nifty technology, and some rather mature implications. Asimov might have given his robots the Rules, but Ashby doesn’t shrink back from exploring a […]
