Tamsyn Muir’s Gideon the Ninth is not only my favorite book of 2020 so far, it has also become one of my favorite books ever. Since Harrow the Ninth, the sequel to Gideon, is coming out this month, I’ve been trawling the Web for news, interviews, AMAs, and anything else I can find about the author. Here’s a handy list.

Everything I’ve built with Rust so far has been tiny in both scope and size, so writing out my error handling code by hand hasn’t been much of a hassle.
