I got my program schedule for Foolscap. I’ll be auctioneering and appearing on a bunch of programming.
My Google slaves have discovered a surprisingly thorough bio of me in Russian (Google translation). This led me to the discovery that the Dozois Year’s Best SF 24, including my story “I Hold My Father’s Paws,” was translated into Russian in 2008.
I received payment from Analog for my story “Teaching the Pig to Sing.” The story will probably appear in Spring or Summer of 2010. Also, a Hungarian Blogger said some nice things about “Titanium Mike.” Google Translate renders the last two sentences of this review as “Literary feat: just write a few, and only the best can really cause pleasure released. The story’s end as if to seize the smile in our faces, and this is no small achievement.” Indeed.
I’m heading for Anticipation, the 67th World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal, tomorrow. My schedule is here. Also, in the July Locus, Gardner Dozois said my story “Aggro Radius” was one of the best stories in Gamer Fantastic.
Space Magic‘s Signed Limited Edition is now available from Wheatland Press.
I will be one of the pros at this year’s Worldcon Writers Workshops. See the link for information about how to sign up. Deadline is July 25, which is soon! Also, Gamer Fantastic, including my story “Aggro Radius,” is now available. I picked up a copy at Powell’s.
Space Magic, my first collection of short stories, is a finalist for the Endeavour Award!
“Firewall” and “Sun Magic, Earth Magic” received Honorable Mentions from Gardner Dozois in his annual Year’s Best SF.
I sold story “Teaching the Pig to Sing” to Analog, my first sale to that market. I am right chuffed. Also, the podcast of I Hold My Father’s Paws from Beam Me Up has been re-posted in their archive.
Circlet Press’s ebook anthology Up for Grabs, including my humorous SF erotica short-short story “Fair Play,” is now available. Warning: explicit sexual content. (My story is sexual, but not as explicit as some of the others.)
