To the New City

August 23, 2022

Here’s the cover of the City on Fire re-issue, again by Hugo-winning artist Elizabeth Leggett. (And I just this minute noticed a problem with it. Anyone else see it?) There have been a number of my books that were difficult to illustrate. I was never satisfied with the covers on the original hardbacks or on […]

Fashion Statement

August 23, 2022

So here’s the new addition to my wardrobe, a plastic brace that straps around my leg. This is intended to help my achilles tendon heal. I tore the tendon back in January, and what with one thing and another (including my black belt test) it never healed, and I kept re-injuring it. This is intended […]

Born in Fire

August 22, 2022

I’m re-releasing the ebook of Metropolitan with new cover art by Hugo-winning artist Elizabeth Leggett. I think this should attract a bit of attention. UPDATE: There were problems getting this up on Smashwords, but apparently they are resolved.

Onward Into the Past

August 19, 2022

Back in April Kathy and I drove the three and a half hours to Portales for the 45th Jack Williamson Lecture, and had to figure out how we were going to entertain ourselves for the long drive across the Llano Estecado. Kathy suggested we listen to the audio book of To Glory Arise, the first […]

Exterminator Wanted

August 15, 2022

At 5:30am I was awakened by a spider biting me on the haunch. I was somewhat familiar with the sensation, since last year I was bitten twice, on two successive nights, by a large centipede that had taken up residence in my easy chair. After the second bite, I jumped up, turned on the light, […]

I stumbled across a review of Hilary G. Hallett’s Inventing the It Girl, a biography of the potboiler novelist Elinor Glyn, who is credited with inventing the form and style of the Hot Romance in the early 20th century. You’d likely recognize the image of a person in a sleek gown of silk velvet, languidly […]

Available or Not

July 21, 2022

Audiobooks of The Macedonian and Cat Island, the final two books (of three) about Favian Markham, USN, have been released, narrated by Bronson Pinchot, who is very fine indeed. The problem is that I can’t seem to find The Macedonian anywhere but on Audible’s own site, and there I had to go to some effort […]

Portrait of the Young Man as an Artist

July 15, 2022

From the archives, a photo of me dating from 1980. I’m a brand-new writer, with a three-book deal but nothing yet in print. In this photo I’m in England, researching the Privateer books. (The librarian at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich was a great help.) In another year or two I’d ditch the spectacles and […]
