Sorry for the scant posting over the course of the last month. Two tight deadlines at the moment — and when push comes to shove I suspect most of you reading this would far rather have me finish GHOST SPIN than ramble on about life, science, and whatever.
That said, here are a few choice internet gatherings to keep you occupied while I’m finishing the final rewrite….
1. Gordon Van Gelder just forwarded NPR’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Poll to me and asked me to pass it on to everyone I know and tell them to vote. Done, sir!
2. I wrote a guest post at SFNovelists called “The Book is Dead, Long Live the Book!” in which I discussed the future of e-publishing. Lots of smart and thoughtful comments coming in, including ones that are making me rethink what I thought I knew when I wrote the post.
3. Here’s a lovely advance review of The Inquisitor’s Apprentice. Normally I feel deeply ambivalent about reviews. Either the reviewer doesn’t like the book, which sucks. Or they do like it but seem to have read a completely different book from the one I wrote, which is … just … weird. And not in a good way. But this reviewer really truly got it. I feel so validated! I feel, like, I don’t know, tracking her down and earnestly shaking her hand. Or maybe I should just go all TR for a minute and give her a virtual “BULLY FOR YOU!”
