Finalist, Locus Award, 2009

Tor.com has just published a new story of mine, "The Things that Make Me Weak and Strange Get Engineered Away" (the title is from "The Future Soon," a Jonathan Coulton song), which is about geek monasteries that house smart people who can't get along in the world and put them to work as coders. The story is the first Tor.com piece to be Creative Commons licensed and you're encouraged to remix it, translate it, whatever. There's already a podcast of me reading the story (also CC licensed) and PDF, Mobipocket and Sony reader files are already available.
