Robin Sloan, a fiction writer

I’m the author of Sourdough and Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, published by MCD×FSG in the United States, Tokyo Sogensha in Japan, and many others around the world. I am also … 

My new novel, Moonbound, is forth­coming from MCD×FSG in June 2024.

My main newsletter goes out once every 29 ½ days. It ranges widely, across books and media and modern life, and I always try to make it feel like a note from a friend.

I also send an occa­sional lab newsletter about creative computing and new avenues on the internet. It is devoted to the topics that are simply too nerdy for my main newsletter.

I’ve published a lot of material across a few different internet eras. Here’s a directory of what’s available on this website and elsewhere.

If you’re here because you are curious about my writing and/or thinking, I encourage you to start with my novels. Both are available wherever books can be purchased or borrowed. The audiobook editions are great, too.

Thanks for stopping by!
