When not designing spacecraft AIs, racing to stop terrorists, or romancing werewolves, Watts Martin writes stories for fun and documentation for a living. (Which is, for the record, often still fun.) Most of Watts's stories involve anthropomorphic animals, which may be why they've been nominated for multiple Coyotl and Ursa Major Awards. In addition to the short story collection Why Coyotes Howl and the Coyotl-winning novella Indigo Rain, you can find other works by Watts in anthologies including Inhuman Acts, Five Fortunes, and The Furry Future, and magazines including New Fables and Heat. Watts's first novel, Kismet, was released in early 2017.

Watts's writing, including several free stories, is available at Coyote Tracks.

A brief chat about Chuck Wendig, the Internet Archive, and bad information spread in good faith

Because I’ve got a bug up my butt about this again, let’s briefly dig into a social media myth that Will Not Die:



“Chuck Wendig is suing the Internet Archive!”



No. No, he is not.



There are two important bits of background here.



First, the Internet Archive. If you know them, you probably know them because of the “Wayback Machine” that archives millions of web sites. They do a lot of other archive-ish s
