Novels Strange Newsletter All Essays in a Book Search


Working backwards from award winning books

Last night Liz and I had a discussion about the near future, and about ideals, what it means to aim for them, miss them, and still be making progress, and whether this approach is psychologically stable.

This was partly during our reunion dinner. Three years together! I’m thankful we can speak so honestly about these matters.

Like China Miéville, I want to win awards in multiple genres for novels.

If this is the goal, everything I do should aim and align me toward those ends.

My current novels are in the science fiction arena but have love stories at their center.

Later this year and early next, I’ll explore something personal, about moving from Indonesia back to the US and feeling like a stranger in my supposed home culture.

Talk soon.
