On the ratio of known to unknown

Kevin asks: I was promised age would bring wisdom, but that doesn’t seem to be working out in my case. What the hell? Yo. You know what being wrong feels like? It feels like being right. You know what being right feels like? It feels like uncertainty. You don’t get to be right by ignoring …

New recording is up!

Today I did an online reading and Q&A session. If you missed it, sorry about the short notice–I only had the information at the last minute myself. But you can still watch it and hear an excerpt from my Steampunk novel, The Deep End. View it on my Recordings page.
