I'm a science fiction and fantasy author who loves dark science fiction, cheerful horror, and modern fairy tales.
My stories appear places including Tor.com, Escape Pod, and Odyssey Magazine.
New! My most recent book, The Unkindness of Ravens, is an epic fantasy coming-of-age novella about trickster gods and favors owed. It can be ordered from all major retailers and is available as an ebook for Kindle and at Barnes & Noble. Enjoy an excerpt here: http://www.aswiebe.com/moreunkindness.html.

Meanwhile, you can listen to some of the stories in the Ghosts on Drugs podcast!
All the tales in Ghosts on Drugs include some version of at least one ghost who's on some version of at least one drug. Both key terms are broadly defined—e.g., a ghostwriter hooked on cough syrup could fit, and a dead ancient god with an inhumanly intense craving to be worshiped again could too.
