Tye and Alice have figured out how to play together (mostly)

NINTH STEP STATION is on the air!

Or on the internet, whatever. I've had a great time working on this original series with Malka Older, Fran Wilde, and J Koyanagi. You can hear an excerpt from the audio version of our first episode below, and subscribe at to get the whole season!

(Thanks also to all the Serial Box marketing folks, especially Shana DuBois and Mary Cummings, for putting together awesome promo videos for us to share with you, dear reader.)

Excerpt from "The Faceless Body" by Malka Older, read by Emily Woo Zeller
NOTA BENE: My first NSS episode doesn't appear until next week, but if you absolutely need to read a near-future police procedural mystery story by me right now, you can find one on...

Curious Fictions

I've joined this site for reprints, and I'll be pushing one story a month to subscribers (just $2 a month, or more if you're feeling generous). The first one's up already, and it's "Somebody's Daughter," featuring NYPD detectives Jake and Andy working a cold case that leads to clones and family secrets.

I'll also be posting public musings about writing and storytelling, and those are free to read; sign up at and follow me to get all my updates!


Meanwhile, in Portland...
