My Name: Matthew Sanborn Smith. My challenge: Write 1000 stories by the time I'm 50 years old. Current story count: 165. Current age: 48. (Yes, I know it will never happen. I push on regardless.) The One-Thousand is made up of stories that are aimed at publication in professional venues. I've been published at Tor.com, Nature, and Chizine, among others. Listen to me on the occasional StarShipSofa and every single Beware the Hairy Mango. Shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com
