From A Distant Shore And Back In Time

Recently I learned that the original short story of Skostniałe niebo, better known as The Frozen Sky, appeared in the July 2010 issue of Polish sci fi magazine Nowa Fantastyka. Heck, they even paid me for it.  Even better, this issue was a Poul Freaking Anderson special!  That’s how far I’m willing to go to […]

Turkish editions of the PLAGUE YEAR trilogy
