TV Show + Speaking Bones Event
Hello! Hope your summer is going well (if you’re in the northern hemisphere). Two big updates for you.
Speaking Bones Event with Alex Shvartsman at An Unlikely Story
On August 18, 7:00 PM, An Unlikely Story Bookstore and Cafe will host an online event for Speaking Bones with me and my friend Alex Shvartsman. Alex, the author of the delightful urban fantasy novel, The Middling Affliction, was one of my earliest beta readers. I’m really looking forward to our discussion.
Please register for the event at the above link and consider supporting a wonderful local indie bookstore by buying a copy of one of our books!
Pantheon, the AMC+ TV Show Based on My Stories, Is Coming in September
AMC Networks’ first traditionally animated series, Pantheon, premieres Thursday, September 1 with weekly episodes on AMC+. A sci-fi drama based on a collection of short stories by award-winning author Ken Liu, this thrilling speculative is centered on a bullied teen (Katie Chang) who receives mysterious help from someone online: a stranger soon revealed to be her recently deceased father, David (Daniel Dae Kim), whose consciousness has been uploaded to the Cloud following an experimental destructive brain scan. David is the first of a new kind of being – an “Uploaded Intelligence” or “UI” – but he will not be the last, as a global conspiracy unfolds that threatens to trigger a new kind of world war. The series writer, creator, showrunner and executive producer is Craig Silverstein (TURN: Washington’s Spies, Nikita, Terra Nova), and animation is by Titmouse (Motorcity, Big Mouth, Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head).
And here’s a first-look clip:
The show is terrific. I had a blast working on this, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Thank you, as always, for supporting my work. Until next time!
