NeuroThursday rides again with the most pervasive myth of brain lateralization: can you be a “left brained” or “right brained” person?

I’m thrilled to announce the sale of another reprint. My neo-Lovecraftian dark fantasy “Sweeter than Lead,” originally a PodCastle original, will be appearing in a future issue of Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores! Most exciting of all, they plan to publish it with an illustration. This is my first time one of my stories will get artwork, and I can’t wait to see what emerges. I’ll make sure to let you all know when it does!
My short story Meltwater came out today at Escape Pod, the internet’s oldest and finest source of audio science fiction! Rajan Khanna gave it an absolutely lovely reading, the perfect balance of mellow and melancholy. If you read the story last year, go forth and listen to the new interpretation – and if you didn’t, now’s your chance to discover my first professional short story!
I have another neuroscience essay up online: this one, Tools and Problems of Human Neuroscience, on the beloved File 770! Click on through to learn about some cutting-edge tools of modern human neuroscience, and how they might (or might not) still be used in a science fictional future.
Bonus: you get to see some pictures of me with electrical equipment strapped to my head!
