Miss Shelley Presents

February 9, 2020

I’ve had an interest in Mary Shelley and her circle for something like ever, an interest that resulted in my novella “Wall, Stone, Craft.” (Which I recommend to you all.) But I also recommend to you this intriguing Kickstarter project, a graphic novel series called Mary Shelley Presents. Each of the four volumes will feature Mary Shelley […]

Some notes on what I’ve been viewing. The Feed, on Amazon, is about a phone-free future in which practically everyone has social media implanted in their heads.  Not only are they online all the time, but the Feed records their lives continually on “mundles” (which I’m guessing is a portmanteau of “memory bundles”) so that […]

Reviews Too Late: Witcher

February 2, 2020

This is probably the most gratuitous review ever, because if you gave a damn about Witcher you’ve already seen it and formed your own opinion.  Probably a lot of you never got past the first episode, which had by far the worst writing of any episode of the series, and made no attempt to clarify […]

Your Ears, Forever Feasting

January 31, 2020

Much though I hope you’ll all go out and buy audio books of Quillifer the Knight, I feel I should remind you that 2019 was a big year for me, audio book-wise. I can personally recommend the audio versions of Metropolitan and City on Fire, both read by the terrific Emily Woo Zeller.  She’s absolutely great at bringing […]

P/r/e/o/r/d/e/r Now!

January 25, 2020

The audio book of Quillifer the Knight is no longer available for pre-order, because it’s just plain available! It’s narrated by the wonderful Ralph Lister, who narrated the first book in the series.  Give yourself a treat, and have a listen. (Also, I note that they’ve got my names in the wrong order.  Ignore that. You […]

Reviews Too Late: 1917

January 25, 2020

I’ve been wanting to see 1917 and various other recent movies, but life has been too hectic to see any entertainment that’s running on a theater’s schedule and not my own.  But today was the first day in ages I haven’t been dashing from Pillar A to Post Z, so I decided to celebrate by […]

Another Fine and Splendid Review

January 19, 2020

Gary K. Wolfe has reviewed Quillifer the Knight.  Nice analysis here, if I say so myself.

Speaking at Length

January 13, 2020

The latest issue of Clarkesworld magazine features an interview with me, conducted by Arley Sorg. (I seem to come off as a sort of punch-drunk, heavily scarred boxer staggering around the ring saying, “ME WIN?  ME WIN?”  Which may be close to the truth, I suppose.)

Consider the Evidence

January 8, 2020

Over the last month, I’ve posted ten novel-length (or longer) reasons why, if you want to write SF or fantasy, you should apply to this year’s Taos Toolbox workshop.  Our veterans are writing and publishing, being nominated for awards, and building their careers. I’ve mentioned ten novels (or series), but these are only the novels […]

Gifts for R/e/a/d/e/r/s/ Gamers #10: Slaughter in a Box

January 3, 2020

Taos Toolbox veteran Eric Kelley has spent a lot of time in the gaming field.  In 2019 three of his games saw the light of day, Munchkin Dungeon, Trudvang Legends, and Zombicide. In Munchkin Dungeon, you delve into the dungeon, vanquish the monsters, backstab your buddies, and grab the loot!  (Can’t miss with that, now can you?) In Trudvang Legends, you […]
