I hope people have found this helpful!

I realized semi-recently that I have a substantial fan base of people who read my political posts and have no idea that I am also a fiction author. YES! I write science fiction and fantasy, which you can find at Amazon.com, BN.com, and at a bookstore near you, if you happen to live in the Twin Cities, because my print novels are carried by both Uncle Hugo's and Dreamhaven. If you're looking for an inexpensive sampler of my work, you could check out one of my short story collections, Comrade Grandmother and Other Stories or Gift of the Winter King and Other Stories. Probably my most politically-oriented fiction would be the Seastead stories I've written in the last year; the first of them is available FREE online here, and two more were published in F&SF. The three published short stories actually form the first half of a novel, which I'm trying to find a publisher for.

This has been a remarkably entertaining election season. I'm going to guess that they'll raise the ballot access fee after this year, and Minneapolis races will get a bit less colorful. (Although the fact is, in an election year without an incumbent or a strong incumbent, and no primary to winnow things down, there will always be a substantial crop of candidates to research.)

Right now, I have no idea who's going to win (other than, "not the 'WAKE THE F*CK UP!' guy"); the Star Trib did a poll but the results were so unhelpful I don't think they've tried another (if they had, I would have expected it to run in the Sunday paper. Maybe it'll run in this Sunday's paper?) There are a lot of possible scenarios. I may add a section for post-election analysis once it's over (we'll see if anyone's still reading then, I guess...)
