I talked literature and code with Vikram Chandra, whose new book Geek Sublime has numerous smart things to say about both.
Who says geeks and novelists don’t make good bedfellows?

New essay on craft from me at Electric Literature.
Every story that works gets the level of description that it needs. Which isn’t to say that the level of description needed for every successful story is the same; quite the opposite. In a 1988 int...

I talked with Sarah McCarry for Vol.1 Brooklyn.
