Hieroglyph is out!
We're touring for this one. Details below
Neal Stephenson's inspired vision to inspire a new generation to enter the sciences and engineering, the Hieroglyph Project, has launched its self-titled anthology. We held a book launch here in Toronto on Sept. 13, which was well attended, and will be doing more events over the next month, all across North America.
Here's what people are saying about Hieroglyph so far:
Goodreads (average rating of 4.6 out of 5 so far)
Slate (story excerpt)
io9 (Madeline Ashby's story excerpted)
There's going to be a lot more; this is just a sample. Meanwhile, we're doing launch events across the country. I'll be attending two more, myself: on October 2, I'll be in Washington, and we'll be discussing Hieroglyph at the World Bank Narrative Hackathon in Phoenix, AZ October 21-25th. Hope you can make one of those!
(My story in the anthology is "Degrees of Freedom," which is about a separatist Haida nation in the Pacific Northwest that uses new technologies of governance to render the current national and provincial governments in the region obsolete.)
