Talk Video

February 11, 2023

Brenda Cooper, Ken Scholes, Hank Schwaeble, Cliff Winnig, and I are interviewed by Sean Patrick Hazlett about our participation in the anthology High Noon on Proxima B. We had fun, I think. Odds are you will, too. P.S. The book is now available wherever fine books are sold.

Looks like I’ve bought tickets to see Steve ‘n’ Seagulls live. Hope they bring the anvil with them.

Another Win on the Shelf

February 7, 2023

So Bonnie got another Grammy to put on her shelf, much to the astonishment and outrage of the world. (If you can’t outrage the world at an awards ceremony, what’s the point?) I could post the video of “Just Like That” here, but I thought I’d put up one that was new to me— a […]

When Horses Fly

January 31, 2023

I suppose because I was the most junior person on board, I was first through the hatch, and then I just gaped. The smell struck me first, horse dung and horse sweat and horse panic and horse urine, all blended into a primeval acid reek that scalded the back of my throat. And then there was the […]

January 29, 2023

For Cousin Cindy’s visit the other day, I cooked a large ham. It was something like 12 pounds, so it lasted considerably longer than the night Cindy was here.

David Crosby is the only major rock star I ever had a conversation with, backstage at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. We weren’t exactly a mutual admiration society: I adored his music; and though a science fiction fan who knew my name, he’d never read any of my books. (I sent him some, but I […]

A Little Joiking in the Night

January 16, 2023

Friend of the blog Steinar Bang has sent me this clip of Norway-born Sami Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen performing a masterful joik. It appears to be some kind of competition show. Now why can’t we have shows like this in the States?

I Am Revu’d

January 13, 2023

Locus Online has published Russell Letson’s lengthy, thoughtful review of Imperium Restored. I quote from a key paragraph: I will repeat (again) the observation I made at the very start, two decades back: that despite marketing language and cover iconography, these are not only space-operatic military adventures but also novels of manners, which makes them […]
