For Writers

  1. Hi Mr. Gregory,
    I host the podcast New Books in Science Fiction & Fantasy on the New Books Network. You can check it out here: I’d love to have you on the show to talk about Harrison Squared or anything else you’d like to muse about. It’ll be fun, I promise. Let me know if you’re interested. Thanks! Regards, Rob

  2. Hi Mr. Gregory, my name is CF and I’m currently in the process of adapting your story “Damascus” into a radio play. You and I have talked briefly on Twitter. You gave me the name of your agent, Seth Fishman, who I looked up but was unable to send an email due to a broken link. I’m curious if you have another way of contacting him?
