I write, mostly fiction.
I have a big silkpunk epic fantasy series called The Dandelion Dynasty, in which the heroes are engineers, not wizards. “Silkpunk” is my invention; I use it to describe a technology aesthetic based on a science fictional elaboration of traditions of engineering in East Asia’s classical antiquity.
My story, “The Paper Menagerie,” is the first piece of fiction to win three genre literary awards: the Hugo, the Nebula, and the World Fantasy Award.
I also consult and speak publicly on various subjects such as the history of bookmaking, futurism, machine-augmented creativity, science fiction, virtual reality, and sustainable storytelling.Read More about About
