Hi Rob! What’s a specific project that you’re excited about right now?

Two, actually. A weird western alternate history novella with a conjure woman gunslinger, Cthulhu mythos, and dragons. Also working on a series of essays for Strange Horizons, a spec-fic journey through Afrofuturist art.

What’s your biggest, most out-there dream of a better world?

Mainstreaming of left-leaning ideals to the point that the right wing takes them as fact and apolitical.

What's a relatively small, highly achievable dream of a better world that you sometimes think about but haven't done yet?

Expansion of social networks to eliminate waste, quasi self-sustaining.

What's your favorite thing about The New Modality?
