Space Magic has received its first review, a comprehensive and generally positive review in The Fix. Money shot: “I hope that the volume does more to make this very worthwhile writer better known to the reading public.”
I’ve been asked to join the faculty of the Iron Springs Writers’ Retreat (next June on the Olympic Peninsula); an interview with me has been posted on the Nebula Awards website; my bio has been posted on the website for Wordstock, so I guess my participation there is official; and Danny O’Brien, blogging about my SF in SF reading, referred to me as “The Ted Chiang of Toontown,” which is a mighty fine epithet if you ask me.
“Titanium Mike Saves the Day” has been translated into Czech, in the Summer 2008 issue of the Czech edition of F&SF. I also just learned that the same magazine translated “Tale of the Golden Eagle” back in 2006.
I sold short story “Galactic Stress” to online anthology Diamonds in the Sky.
I sold short story “Sun Magic, Earth Magic” to new webzine Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
“Titanium Mike” will be podcast at StarShipSofa.
“Babel Probe,” “Moonlight on the Carpet,” and “Titanium Mike Saves the Day” all received Honorable Mentions in Gardner Dozois’s latest Year’s Best Science Fiction.
The signed and numbered hardcover of my collection Space Magic is now available from Wrigley-Cross Books.
