And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the ADVENTURES OF ARABELLA ASHBY series is eligible for the Best Series Hugo.

I published one thing this year: ARABELLA THE TRAITOR OF MARS, the conclusion of the Adventures of Arabella Ashby trilogy. It hasn’t gotten a lot of critical attention, but many people have told me they think it’s the best of the three.

Very honored to be included on this list!

Chicago! On September 6 I will be reading at Volumes Book Cafe with Mary Robinette Kowal, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Chris Bauer and Steven Silver. Hope to see you there!

Just finished binge-reading Nora Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy. Damn, what a ride! Five stars.

I'm looking for a Mastodon client for iOS. I've tried Tootdon and Amaroq and both have the following problems:

1. Viewing the profile of a user on another instance, looking at the list of people they follow, I can see only people on my own instance. Makes it hard to discover users on other instances.
2. No badge (red number on app icon) for unread notifications.

Any suggestions for an iOS app that doesn't have these bugs? Or are they systemic?
