Wild Cards at the Jean Cocteau

October 4, 2017

This Sunday, at 4pm at the Jean Cocteau Theater in Santa Fe, 20-odd Wild Cards writers will be present for a signing.  The cost of admission is to buy a book. I don’t know if any of my other books will be available, but no one will object if you bring your own. The latest […]

Angel Sale

October 3, 2017

October’s been completely packed, and it’s only three days old.  Not only did Quillifer drop just yesterday (I trust you already have your copy), but I’ve just put my classic novel Angel Station on sale for 99 cents. Angel Station was my first attempt at setting a story entirely in space, and I set myself the task […]

Alas, Cronkite

October 3, 2017

Once upon a time, Walter Cronkite did stuff like this.  When Watergate was a confused scandal difficult for the public to grasp, Cronkite took two evenings to put it all together on television.  The second evening was curtailed by a terrified network chairman, but by then Cronkite’s point had been made, and the Watergate scandal […]

Gilt and Glory

September 28, 2017

More gilding from St. Petersburg— I have to think half the world’s gold supply is slathered over the buildings and monuments.  This is part of the Admiralty, originally a fortress built by Peter the Great, now an Empire-style complex built in the early 19th century. The weathervane atop the tower is in the shape of […]

Body Count

September 27, 2017

I’ve been watching the Ken Burns documentary on Vietnam, and trying not to be completely overcome by shell shock.  I lived through the era, but now seeing twelve or more years of folly and slaughter condensed into 10 episodes of television, is something like having 10 bad acid flashbacks in a row while being repeatedly […]

Sea of Lost Ships

September 24, 2017

Via Janice, the announcement of a “ship graveyard” in the Black Sea, featuring the preserved remains of wrecks stretching over 2500 years.  Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman . . . it’s all there. The Black Sea is a notoriously stormy sea, and the Greeks called it Euxeinos Pontos, “the hospitable sea,” for the same reason they called […]

Days of Frenzy

September 21, 2017

I had a lovely time traveling this summer, but I knew I was going to pay for it later.  And by later, I mean now. I’m working on a number of things more or less simultaneously.  Promoting Quillifer!, which will be released on October 3.  Doing an online sale of Voice of the Whirlwind, which (unfortunately) sort of […]

First Review

September 19, 2017

My new novel, Quillifer, has received its first review, or at least the first review that anyone’s bothered to tell me about.  From Publishers Weekly: 09/11/2017 In this sprawling, lively episodic adventure, Williams (Angel Station) returns to his swashbuckling historical fantasy roots while exploring new territory. Eighteen-year-old Quillifer, a butcher’s son and legal apprentice, lives a life […]
