I wrote some thoughts about community and awards and gratitude, and linked to the youtube speech and stuck in some really embarrassing truthsecrets about the Nebulas and also news about the Compton Crook.

Today, Cooking the Books has Matt Wallace, author of the fantastically funny Sin Du Jour novella series! 
The first time I met Matt Wallace, he made me laugh. That's the kind of guy he is. Granted, we were in the middle of fire season in Spokane, Washing...

At tor.com I asked 10 authors -- including Nancy Kress, Tade Thompson, Elizabeth Bear, Walter Jon Williams, Aliette de Boddard, Linda Nagata, Michael Swanwick, Max Gladstone, Maurice Broaddus, and Ellen Klages their thoughts on science fiction, hard & soft. Their answers are most excellent: http://www.tor.com/2016/01/21/how-do-you-like-your-science-fiction-ten-authors-weigh-in-on-hard-vs-soft-sf/
