I’m now 6500 words into the sequel to Jack Vance’s The Demon Princes series, and the story is developing nicely. As ever, I have only the vaguest idea of where things will go once I create characters and set them in motion, but this one is unfolding as they always do. I’ve just woken up from a nap to find the guy in the back of my head telling me what the maguffin of the story is, and it’s a good one.


In another part of the forest, a podcast interview I gave back in 2018 at Vancouver’s VCon science fiction con has surfaced on a site I’d never heard of called Hubhopper.
