oh, hi

Three and a half months since my last post. Wow. I never intended it and it doesn’t feel that long. The calendar says so, though: the calendar and the season, which—here in Eugene—is pretty definitely spring although people where I used to live are still digging out from under Snowpocalypse ’15. (Can’t say I’m sorry […]

the year that was

Well, it’s a tradition, I suppose, the year-end sum up, hardly subverted by being posted on the first day of the new year instead of the last of the old. So. In 2011, I published two books, a marvel of unprecedented proportion. The New People (and its companion-between-the-covers, Brandon Bell’s Elegant Threat) made little impression […]

A few things going on. Seem to be in the process of making BrazenHead’s first acquisition, a little book the choice of which may surprise some people who know me. It surprises me. More dirt when the contract is issued/signed. Trying to complete a short story for an anthology whose editor has graciously extended the […]

freshly hatched

All new and…well, not shiny, new and matte!   AX has a novella to read. Aside, that is, from the BrazenHead slushpile. A minor note: Through some eminently forgiveable oversight, the acknowledgments I meant to append to The New People were left out. So here they are: Acknowledgments Thanks to Betty Harrington for a sensitive, […]

glimpsed in the wild

In its native environment, on the virtual shelves at barnesandnoble.com, the rare and elusive M-Brane Double: Evidence of its passage has also been discovered in the Amazon basin: And the Double has been sighted in pampered captivity, on the St Louis, MO, deck of M-Brane publisher Chris Fletcher and cover artist Jeff Lund (Jeff, let […]

M-Brane SF Double #1

Today was meant to be the release date for M-Brane SF Double #1, partly in honor of the birthday of Jeff Lund, who created the nifty cover art and who puts up with M-Brane publisher Chris Fletcher on a daily basis. Alas, the coincidence of a tiny glitch in the cover layout (not Jeff’s responsibility) […]

tomorrow week

The M-Brane SF Double, comprising (as has been said before) my short novel The New People bound tête-bêche with Brandon Bell’s Elegant Threat, is very nearly a real thing—an object to be held in one’s hands, caressed, fondled…read. M-Brane mastermind Chris Fletcher just released an image of the almost final wraparound cover: You still have […]

pub date approacheth

Over at the M-Brane SF blog, Chris Fletcher has announced a firm publication date for the M-Brane SF Double: 31 May 2011. To entice you into being among the early readers of this startling little book, Chris offers a massive trove of free electronic-form M-Brane bling to the first hundred pre-orderers, including a lifetime subscription […]

sunday musical interlude

Ravishing new English-language song from ravishing Israeli singer Ivri Lider, whose discography has had a profound effect on my work and life for the last several years. “Back Home,” from the soundtrack to Tomer Heymann’s film The Queen Has No Crown, was posted on YouTube just today. Somewhat older, a teaser for Ivri’s eagerly anticipated […]

blurb

The inimitable and astonishing Sandra McDonald, author of the luscious collection Diana Comet and Other Improbable Tales, the science-fiction trilogy commencing with The Outback Stars, and a couple of other wonderful books I shouldn’t talk about because they’re issued under false names, has provided a lovely blurb for The New People. The New People is […]
