My story is now live at Tor.com! Edited by the amazing Ann VanderMeer. Jaw-dropping cover art by Julie Dillon. Here's the teaser text:

Generation after generation, engineers have maintained the barricade, a shield that protects civilization against Turbulence, this strange force that destroys both minds and machines. As Turbulence grows ever more intense and the barricade begins to fail, can Ritter live up to the demands of his father, an engineer the equal of any hero in the Five Great Classical Novels, as they struggle to prevent this civilization from falling like every civilization has before it?
Read A Cost Benefit Analysis of the Proposed Trade-Offs for the Overhaul of the Barricade, a new original science fiction short story on Tor.com by John Chu.

Hmm... "The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere" made Lois Tilton's year end wrap up. O_o.

The tl;dr is:
It was great to see everyone again, especially Ann. I met a bunch of awesome people whom I hadn't known before WorldCon. I now have the opportunity to translate into English the work of an incredibly talented Chinese writer!

tl;dr: I'm the only person in my category I've never heard of. (Absolutely thrilled though!)
My short story “The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere” has been nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Short Story of 2013. I won’t say that I wasn’t surprised. In fact, there may have been some rather unprofessional... | John Chu | writer, improviser, microprocessor designer, translator, podcast narrator

Whee! My Boston Review story has gone live on Escape Pod. (Note: As is perhaps appropriate for a time travel story, my bio in the podcast is slightly out-of-date. The "forthcoming" stories are now actually published.)

Ken Liu's gripping piece of historical fiction "The Litigation Master and the Monkey King" (yes, that Monkey King) is up at Lightspeed. (And narrated by me. Yes, again. Lightspeed and EscapePod emailed me within a couple days of each other.)

The tl;dr is that I had a great time. The folks who run Readercon pulled off a terrific con. And, inadvertently, it has inspired a short story.

Publisher's Weekly called my story "intriguing" and gives Bloody Fabulous overall a good review!
