Upcoming guest editorial in Analog

I’m very excited to be able to let you know that I have a guest editorial coming up in the March/April issue of Analog Science Fiction and Fact, where I talk about how we could use story telling, design fiction specifically, to get people excited about new directions in education and, maybe, save the world with free, high-quality education for all. (You should all make Trevor and his team happy by buying that issue of Analog! 🙂 )

Of course, because of when I wrote the editorial, I was unaware of the movie “Hidden Figures” but I’m very excited to see all of the people involved in the space program being recognised for their contributions. Here’s to a time when we record everyone’s involvement honestly and up front, regardless of gender, race, orientation or religion.

I’m working on my next book, with an aim to get “Meditations on the Vampire Republic” out in the second half of 2017.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Oh, unlucky thirteen… #curseofkerevesdere

Somewhat despite myself, I have managed to push the book into both the iBooks and Kindle distribution channels, which should mean pre-orders available soon on both and sales, on time, for the 1st of April.

That’s all I’m saying. I don’t want to jinx it. Between having to relearn XPath commands to force the eBook to open in the right place and some ISBN shenanigans, I’m going to call today an acceptable state of affairs and quietly walk away.
