Good Thing, Coming to an End

April 9, 2017

The 99-cent sale on Implied Spaces will end 10pm MDT, Monday, April 10, so if you want  a copy at that price, you should venture over to Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, Kobo, iBooks, and Google. I’m sorry to report that this sale was a flop.  Mostly that was due to BookBub, the largest venue for ebook promotion, deciding (for reasons best known to […]

2-D

April 7, 2017

So here I am on the Llano Estecado, which is very, very flat.  Mr. A Square would be very much at home. I am once again at the annual Jack Williamson Lectureship, where I am hanging with some lovely people, including Connie Willis, Michael Cassutt, Steve Gould, Melinda Snodgrass, and Joan Saberhagen. As usual, Patrice […]

Them!

March 30, 2017

They know too much about me.  (You’ve heard of Them, right?) I was looking at Amazon today, and they offered me the Easy Acid Reflux Cookbook.  How do They know I have acid reflux?  Is the pharmacy sending Them insufficiently anonymized data? Or have They been monitoring my doctor’s electronic files? I was browsing Costanza’s […]

Another Goodie

March 29, 2017

Lo, I am Bundl’d! Once again my work is to be found in a StoryBundle, this one on the theme of Artificial Intelligence. And once again, you decide what you want to pay! (Assuming, that is, that you pay at least five bucks.) If you offer at least $5, you get five books: Aristoi by Walter Jon […]

Random Acts of Violence

March 28, 2017

I’m working on the new Praxis book, and by way of getting in the mood, I’ve been reading a pack of novels about the Second World War. Not that anything I’m writing about will in any way resemble the Second World War.  I’m really not interested in “World War II in Space” novels, of which […]

Power Chords

March 27, 2017

I’m pleased to report that my novel Implied Spaces is now on sale for a mere $0.99 wherever fine ebooks are sold!  (Which in this case would be Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, Kobo, iBooks, and Google.) The original publisher seriously bungled the release of this one, and it never found traction with readers.  Here’s hoping that all changes. Implied Spaces is one of […]
