Shiny! Well, Shiny’s kid. ART STYLIN’

I think I have a seekrit authar fetish — I love love LOVE seeing readers create art derived from my work. Now, obligatory armchair legalese here — “derived from” by the terms of fair use and substantial alteration of the original work, etc., etc., and if I felt I needed a fanworks policy it would […]

Highly recommended!

I almost broke out the pink sparkly text again, but figured it was too soon. (The rest of this year might be too soon for that…) Still, I’m feeling sparkly. That’s because I found out that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms made the 2010 Locus Recommended Reading list in the “First Novels” category! This is a […]

BLADDOW!!

Y’know, sometimes I just have to stop and contemplate how lucky I am, ya’ll. I mean, there are times when it gets to me: the performance anxiety, the fear of failure, the Bookscan/Amazon/etc. numbers, the deadline pressure, the financial struggle.

Tuesday No-Blues Day

Got three bits of good news this morning, but I can only share two of them with you for now. (Just gives you more to anticipate this week!)

Nebula Ballot!

::whew:: Been sitting on this for 2 days now; thought I was gonna blow up or something. So, it’s official: I am on the Final Ballot for the Nebulas, for my short story “Non-Zero Probabilities” that ran in Clarkesworld last year. I am beyond excited about this. Y’know how they say “being nominated is an […]

Preserving for posterity…

Actual list here, but note that it changes hourly.

Do we have BOOK SIGN? And contest!

Got the first report today from someone in the UK that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms has been spotted on a Waterstones bookshelf!! I’m kind of shocked, because I thought the thing wasn’t even supposed to ship until Wednesday, but hey, who knew. Apparently only J. K. Rowling’s books get held off the shelves ’til the […]

Honorable Mention in Year’s Best SF!

By way of fellow Fluidian Mercurio Rivera, good news: my short story “Playing Nice With God’s Bowling Ball” (Baen’s Universe, 2008) received an Honorable Mention in Gardner Dozois’ Year’s Best Science Fiction! I write a lot more SF than I ever manage to sell — which tells me that maybe I don’t write it very […]
