Queer Cyberpunk Episode!


  My new podcast, Mona Lisa Overpod, has just dropped its second episode in time for Pride Month: queerness and cyberpunk. Co-host Ka1iban and I go deep into the idea that there is something intrinsically queer about body mods, internet anonymity, and other cyberpunk themes.

You can listen to us anywhere fine podcasts are found, but several include:

New bi-weekly podcast!

 


My co-host Ka1iban and I, in conjunction with Just Enough Trope, have launched a new cyberpunk-themed podcast: Mona Lisa Over Pod. Currently, you can catch our debut/zero episode on Spreaker, but we should be available on Spotify and Apple Tunes shortly. 

We will be dropping new content every two weeks, so be sure to subscribe at your favorite podcasting site so that you don't miss an episode.

You can also follow the podcast on X, Facebook, and Instagram at @monalisaoverpod !

I am incredibly excited about this. I have remained a huge fan of cyberpunk since I first published in that genre over twenty years ago. We're going to be doing broad subject episodes, like, Queerness in Cyberpunk, etc., but also deep-dives into some of the classics (and new works!)

"Talking Smart" an interview with My Dad

 I'll bet you didn't know that my father has a vlog. 

Yes, and he has 31 subscribers!--a number which I would mock, but is significantly more followers than I have on my Patreon. At any rate, we sat down last Sunday and had a lovely conversation (if a bit awkward when it becomes fairly clear that he's not exactly sure whether I've written about zombies or vampires as Tate Hallaway) about life, the universe, and everything in the digital age. 

Unfortunately, I can't embed this video, so if you want to watch it, you'll have to click this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjSix3rLWF0 

Anyway, check it out. It's fairly entertaining.

Official Book Birthday Day!


Today is the big day! My book Welcome to Boy. Net is official out today. This book had the working title of Lesbians in SPAAAAACE which pretty much sums up the plot. To celebrate, please enjoy this ridiculous, self-made video of the moment I unboxed my author's copies of the trade paperback edition. I do my own subtitling, so any misspellings are on me, but also this means there is a chance for me to editorialize in the subtitles, like at the very end of this video. (Yes, this is my secret ploy to get you to watch this until the end.)

If you are so inclined, please feel free to pester your local bookstore to buy a few copies to put on the shelves!
