Iâ€™m the author of the story collections Questionable Practices (Small Beer Press, 2014) and Stable Strategies and Others (Tachyon Publications, 2004) and the co-editor of The WisCon Chronicles Two (Aqueduct Press, 2008). My fiction has received the Nebula Award in the US and the Sense of Gender Award in Japan, and been nominated for the Hugo, Philip K. Dick, and World Fantasy awards, and short-listed for the James Tiptree, Jr. award. I was editor/publisher of the influential Infinite Matrix webzine, 2001-2008.
A graduate of the Clarion Workshop at MSU in 1976, I participated in the workshop at Kate & Damonâ€™s in Eugene, and, after moving to Seattle, served for 22 years on the board of directors of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and as its communications director for 8 years. My most recent stories are â€œPhantom Pain,â€ and "Chop Wood, Carry Water," both first published in Questionable Practices in 2014.
