If you’ve been enjoying all my work to bring neuroscience to the SFF author and fan community, consider: all this stuff makes me eligible for the Best Fan Writer Hugo award!
Here’s all of my public-audience neuroscience writing1 published in 2017:
1. The Evolved Brain in Clarkesworld
2. Tools and Problems of Human Neuroscience at the File 770 blog
3. Right Hand, Human Brain: The Mysteries of Handedness at Baen.com
4-34. Thirty-one neuroscience essays via my #NeuroThursday Twitter feature.2 A few highlights:
- Left vs. Right Brained
- Maps in the Brain
- Fluidity of Memory
- Harry Potter and the Principles of Neural Science (aka Novelty in the Brain)
- Harry Potter and the Theory of Neural Science (aka Philosophy of Neuroscience)
[Edit: #1 and #3 appeared in professional magazines, and therefore technically may not create eligibility for Best Fan Writer. So, focus on NeuroThursday – but you can still be aware of my whole body of work!]
I hope these pieces have contributed to your knowledge, entertainment, and awesomeness! If it has, consider nominating me for Best Fan Writer. But make sure you also nominate more deserving people like Alasdair Stewart and Sarah Gailey.
On the fiction side I’m in my second year of eligibility for the John. W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, with 7 original short stories and a lot of editorial work in 2016-2017. Check out the summary here!
- You don’t get my peer-reviewed academic publications. You don’t want my peer-reviewed academic publications.
- Sorry for directing you to Twitter, but the shutdown of Storify’s thread-hosting service is a frustration for us all. I’ve tried collecting the threads into single pages via Thread Reader when possible, but it only seems to work about 40% of the time.
