I've actually got three things in the hopper at the moment: a Mars mission sci-fi comedy for Audible Originals, the beginning of a novel with a working title of Shut Up And Run!, and ideas for the third Tesla book, where Chip explores being a (gulp) dad! I can't even imagine what kind of havoc little Gigi could wreak inside the ITA.(less)

I'm psyched you loved The Wrong Unit. Man, that story is near and dear (although I guess they all are my babies!). It was written as a standalone (vs. Tesla which was always meant to be a serial), so I don't think there'll be a sequel, but I'm a big believer in never-say-never! (And now you've got me thinking... what DOES happen to the humans?) Have a happy new year Joanne!(less)

Where the Hell is Tesla? now available in Turkish!

It seems Nikola Tesla is all the rage in Turkey (rightly so). They can’t get enough of the eccentric genius who invented alternating current for electricity, radio (though Marconi got initial credit), x-rays, wireless telegraphy, and many more. (And according to Where the Hell is Tesla?, the INTERDIMENSIONAL TRANSFER APPARATUS.)


I wouldn’t have known about the Turkey thing if a Turkish/English f...
