Updates & Errata

 We’re heading into the final day-and-a-half of the big ebook sale!  See info again here. My German is not what it should be since my wife is German!  In the new Visionarium anthology, the title of my short story “Pressure” is “Druck,” not Die Austrocknun.”  My bad.   😛  I really am actually kinda finally for […]

8 Writers. 22 Books. Big Sale!

This week, the Plague Year trilogy and Long Eyes are included in an Escape Your Taxes Sale… and if you can’t have fun avoiding the IRS, at least you can distract yourself with some good reads!  Check it out! Psst. Ever wonder what Chuck Wendig’s Blue Blazes is all about? Or want to dip your toes into […]

Fun News From Germany

My short story “Die Austrocknun,” probably better known as “Pressure,” has been translated into German in an Austrian anthology series called Visionarium. If you’re in the Fatherland, you can find it in print and on Kindle.  Or if you’re bilingual, it’s also in the U.S.   😉

Late As Usual But Having Fun!

I thought I’d use the same title for this post as I did for my last write-up about Nowa Fantastyka.  First, because I’m always late.  Second, because it is indeed great fun to work with this team.  The editor, Marcin Zwierzchowski, has become one of my overseas favorites.  Who else would put Jeff Carlson alongside […]

“Long Eyes” Audiobooks!!!

Or… Nobody Ever Tells Me Nuthin’…   😉 Many moons ago, Audible bought audio rights to my short story collection Long Eyes.  After signing contracts, that was the last I heard of it except to learn that the smooth-voiced Chris Snelgrove was producing and narrating.  Sweet. Way behind the curve as usual, I recently discovered […]

Deep Thoughts With Jefe El Jefe

Yesterday I came across this saying about marriage that I thought was pretty profound: We choose our partners because they represent the unfinished business from our childhood. Stop and think about that one for a minute!  

Sly & Inventive New Sci Fi Novel

The inestimable Charles Jane Anders released her new title this week, a techno-magical-apocalyptic-love-and-doom novel (try saying that five times in a row!).  It’s called All The Birds In The Sky.  Not surprisingly, Sky is stacking up positive reviews for being thoughtful yet fast-paced and unique.  Check it out!!!

Deep into FS3 and eating cinnamon toast!

Team Carlson had a killer set of holidays.  Hope you did, too.  Now that the madness is settling down, I’m back at work, which means almost-healthy-breakfasts of WAAAAAAAAAY too much coffee, yogurt, bananas… and cinnamon toast… Sometimes it’s tough to focus on the real world when your brain is inside Europa.

Inside Scoop on BLINDSIDED!!!!!

THANK YOU to everyone who’s emailed to say “Where the heck is the third FROZEN SKY novel?”  I love it.   No question this book is woefully behind schedule. I finally updated my official bio on this site and here’s the short explanation: “Early in 2015, Jeff was badly injured while muscling a 400 pound […]
