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.

Random (but not angry) thoughts on "Game of Thrones"

(This will have spoilers for previously-aired episodes. Avert your eyes if you care.) “Everyone hates this final season!” I’ve noticed. Entitled nerd rage has been a thing over the last few years. “Oh, come on. Benioff & Weiss [the show’s creators] are terrible hacks!” Are they? They not only story-edited your favorite episodes, but they wrote most of the episodes that fans and critics both love. Read more of this blog post »
