It’s 2023, and my first new published short story in over a year appears in the double-sized Issue 50 of Uncanny Magazine, alongside a host of phenomenal authors. “How to Raise a Kraken in Your Bathtub”—a tale of colonialism, sea monsters, and men of ambition.

The cover for my upcoming debut novel A Master of Djinn got revealed this week. Welcome back to the world of an alternate 1912 Cairo, of steampunk, magic, and djinn. Oh, and everyone’s favorite dapper suit wearing investigator–complete with a bowler.
I wrote a book. Again. An actual whole other book. Well actually, like last time, it’s a novella–that no man’s land between full-fledged novel and short story. This one’s called The Haunting of Tram Car 015. It debuts in one week, so I thought it might be important that I tell people about it.
