Indoor Entertainment

November 21, 2014

If you live anywhere in North America, the overwhelming likelihood is that your weekend weather forecast is going to completely suck, and you’ll probably be spending most if not all of the weekend indoors, where it’s warm. Lucky you!  That means you can brighten your weekend with a brand-new story from me, and it’s free […]

Reviews Too Late: Solemnity

November 18, 2014

While I was traveling, I caught up with some recent pop-culture blockbusters (by watching them on airplanes), and now I have a question: Where did all the damn solemnity come from? When you watch a genre film, there are certain things you have a right to expect from that genre.  And when you find that these […]

Meanwhile, in an Alternate Present

November 15, 2014

While I was abroad I had a story published and didn’t know it.  My story “Road Kill” is now available in the the latest Wild Cards collection, Lowball, edited by George RR Martin and Melinda Snodgrass. Pretty nifty cover, ne? If you’re unfamiliar with the Wild Cards universe, I’d suggest that you not start with this one, […]

November 14, 2014

This week I was on the John Mac Radio Show, and I talked for nearly an hour.  If this is of interest, I urge you to check it out. I was late in turning up for my own interview, so there’s a certain amount of vamping at the start, for which I apologize.

I’ve been back in New Mexico for several days, slowly recovering from jet lag and the fact I moved from sea level to 5000 feet in mere hours.  The Williams Invasion of France and the Middle East is definitely over. Kathy had to turn right around and fly to the East Coast, because her Aunt […]

Our last day in France, so perhaps it’s appropriate we visit a cemetery.  (Or maybe we’re celebrating Day of the Dead a little late this year.) This is the rather odd cenotaph of Charles Baudelaire, whose actual grave is elsewhere in the Montparnasse cemetery.  He’s got two effigies: squatting all scowly up top, and wrapped […]

In Nantes

October 31, 2014

I am in lovely Nantes, the hometown of Jules Verne, for Utopiales, France’s largest SF convention. I’m heavily programmed, but then I got a free trip to France so I can hardly complain.  In any case, I’ll either be working or having fun, and unlikely to be composing any thoughtful essays in this space. Have […]
