He has also written science fiction novels such as The Silicon Man (published originally by Wired books) and Protektor (from Avon Books). He stopped writing science fiction when he started contributing to Wired magazine in 1993, and became one of its three senior writers a couple of years later.

Currently he is designing and building prototypes of medical equipment in his workshop in a northern Arizona wilderness area.
