Thanks to Armchair/Shotgun managing editor Laura MacMillan for snapping photos.
We packed the house!
I was terrified I'd drop my iPad. So I put rubber cement on my fingertips.

As you may recall, when I’m not writing novels or battling forty-story robots from the future, I also co-manage a literary magazine. I’m so proud and honored that Armchair/Shotgun is listed with nine other “Literary Heirs” today in New York Times Magazine.
“What distinguishes these 10 is that they’re not only intello-chic statements for your side table. They’re also really good reads.”
