CATASSASSINS! is live

Hey everyone!

My first published short story, CATASSASSINS! is a part of the Help Fund my Robot Army!!! & Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects anthology.

I'm excited (and a little nervous). I also learned someone is turning it into an audio drama, so more on that later when I have the details!

Thanks to everyone who supported the Kickstarter for the anthology, and I hope you enjoy the story. Read more of this blog post »

The Sword and Laser: Veronica Belmont talks with Brian McClellan 3 40 Jul 01, 2021 11:01AM  
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

“My ability to turn good news into anxiety is rivaled only by my ability to turn anxiety into chin acne.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

“It is remarkable, Hardin, how the religion of science has grabbed hold. ”
Isaac Asimov, Foundation

“Eight, sir; seven, sir;
Six, sir; five, sir;
Four, sir; Three, sir;
Two, sir; one!
Tenser, said the Tensor.
Tenser, said the Tensor.
Tension, apprehension,
And dissension have begun.”
Alfred Bester, The Demolished Man
