  1. I thoroughly enjoyed The Union Of Soil And Sky, and eagerly anticipated your next story in Asimov’s … Slow Boat was a fun, clever and SMART story and a real treat. My only wish in both cases … MORE MORE MORE. Looking forward to more words with thanks!

    I’ve been mulling over a sequel to “Union”, and I’d really like NaN and A(i)da, so there may be more in both worlds some day. I am off to the Clarion workshop next week, and by the end of that I hope to have four to eight new stories…!
