After twenty years of wandering desolate as a writer, Ferrett Steinmetz attended the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers' Workshop in 2008 and was rejuvenated. Since then, he's sold stories to Asimov's Science Fiction (twice!), Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Shimmer, and Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, among others, and otherwise has a marvelous collection of very personalized rejection letters. He lives in Cleveland with his wife, a well-worn copy of Rock Band ("Painkiller," Expert, four stars), and a friendly ghost. Should you want more of Ferrett Steinmetz, he blogs about puns, politics, and polyamory at www.theferrett.com. ...more

So Where Has Ferrett Been?

"You haven't posted anything in over a year!" people say.

That's not true, though!  I'm posting away semi-regularly at my website theferrett.com. But when I shut down my LiveJournal - partially because I was uncomfortable funnelling old Google-traffic to its owners, partially because it just didn't feel like "my" site any more - people said I vanished from view.

Truth is, the feeds just weren't up Read more of this blog post »

" Yay! "
More of Ferrett's books…
“Society took all the traits that a kid needed to be a successful adult – independence, a questioning spirit, a ferocious drive to satisfy your own needs – and then quashed them relentlessly, so thoroughly suppressing those urges that some adults never figured out how to be happy again.”
Ferrett Steinmetz, The Flux

“Oh, God,” he muttered. “This is such a mistake.” “That’s how you always say yes!” Valentine squealed, and tackle-hugged him.”
Ferrett Steinmetz, The Flux

“The movies make being crazy look wild and imaginative, filled with fantastic delusions and intricate camerawork. But the truth is, mental illness is like a dull job you can't quit.”
