Here's a video of the craft talk I delivered at the Colgate Writers' Conference this past June, "In the Presence of Absence, or: Thanks, Blanks!" It is an appreciation of negative space in fiction. You can also watch the reading I gave with my friend Jennifer Smithright here.

My latest books are available in new formats: there are now Kindle editions of Castle and Pieces For The Left Hand. You should be able to download these books from other vendors, as well. In addition, a Castle audiobook is on the way--stay tuned for that.

My article on Margaret Atwood's post-Handmaid's-Tale career, "Exquisite Amusements," has now been published in The Walrus. Read it online here. In addition, Walrus editor Jared Bland interviewed me about my own writing last summer; that interview is now available here.
