“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.

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!!!

Here is the seriously disturbing June 2015 cover of the sci fi magazine Nowa Fantaskya, a major publication in Poland, whose editor Marcin Zwierzchowski is an individual of taste and genius.  I love working with this team!!!!!  The 6/15 issue includes fiction by Le Guin and Paolo Bah-cha-gah-loop-ee.  (That’s my phonetic spelling; he’s better known […]

Plague War in Dutch!

As usual, I’m late (again) to my own party… but better late than never! The good folks at Uitgeverij Macc released their blockbuster edition of Plague War last month.  I have to say, their titles are my favorites from around the world.  Tell this doesn’t sound extremely cool: De Oorlog van de Plaag Here is […]
