...do I hear one dolla?  Two dolla?

It was announced this morning – my debut novel State of Decay has officially won the 2011 Compton Crook Award!  So, I will be flying to Baltimore tomorrow not just to attend Balticon, but also to accept the award and I couldn’t be more excited.  The folks running the con have been absolutely fantastic about …

Los Rayos-X!

I am one handsome bastard

WARNING: Post contains graphic X-Ray images almost too horrible to imagine! I am apparently getting to that age where little things begin to ‘go wrong’.  A meddlesome pain in my left ear is not, I have finally decided, being caused by nefarious ear imps harvesting wax with which to fuel their tiny machines of war…but …

Allow Me To Introduce…

Ginger Clark making deals, or piloting an airplane I'm not sure

…my new Agent Extraordinaire, Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown LTD! For the record, my previous agent not only landed me my first deal but is also a highly professional and ethical guy; this is just a tough business and I felt that I could maximize my chances of survival in it with a larger New …

Ex-Con (Norwescon Impressions Part II)

norwescon baby!

Another really neat thing about Norwescon was all the delicious swag on display.  There was a big vendor area, kind of like a bazaar, where loads of people had set up shop selling everything from books to battle-axes (I’m serious, if I thought I could have gotten it on the airplane I could have bought …

Ex-Con (Norwescon Impressions Part I)

At least one Slave Leia is mandatory

I still need to get the pictures together, but I’m settled back in with my first ‘con under my belt.  How did it go?  I’ll give you a quick breakdown. It was fun, I’ll say that up front.  My wife and I had a good time in spite of being fish out of water to …

Come Fly With Me…

fly on

Ok, tomorrow my wife and I hop a flight from Boston to Seattle for Norwescon. I’m looking forward to the event itself, but I’ll be honest:  I hate to fly.  I think I might hate everything about it.  I don’t like airports, I don’t like pat-downs (okay, sometimes I do), I don’t like being in …

Truth is at least as strange as fiction

In my REVIVORS series, certain characters are able to communicate with each other (among other things) by using a wireless interface implanted in their heads.  Using only their brainwaves, they are able to manipulate the interface so that they can send and receive messages, open and close network sockets, run translation software, facial recognition software, …

APPLE draft in test reads

Again, somewhat old news.  It’s been about a month now but I’ve had my hands full with The Silent Army.  Apple is basically what I would term Sci-Fi Horror, I suppose, but in a weird way it’s mostly a story about two lost souls.  The crisis that brings them together could have been a lot …
