A new novella and a new novelette.

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Book of Iron is out tomorrow! (Some early orderers seem to have copies already.) This novella is a prequel to Bone and Jewel Creatures, although it stands alone. It’s set in the same world as the Eternal Sky books, and it features roadsters, necromancy, and miserably complicated interpersonal relationships. Like you do. You can read [...]

Short fiction and love, both free…

My short story “Form and Void” is now available for free in issue 3 of Fireside. It’s about mean girls and space exploration and Io. Before she turned into a dragon, Kathy Cutter was Comanche Zariphes’ best friend. You might say Comanche Zariphes was Kathy Cutter’s only friend. That wasn’t because nobody wanted to be [...]

Busting out all over. Also, book sale.

The CEM is more or less dead. I’m just waiting on final comments from one first reader (cough cough) and I can send it back. Also, the draft of “Covenant” is more or less knocked out–the rest of today, after errands, will be devoted to revisions and making it sparkle. Amazing how getting a huge [...]

Two things, both awesome:

A totally ridiculous Star Trek: The Backcompatibalized Original Original Series vid that makes me happy and stuff: Popular Science magazine recruited a bunch of SF authors and artists to play futurist! Features John Picacio, Scott Lynch, Nancy Kress, David Palumbo, Ian Tregillis, Dave Seeley, Karl Schroeder, Daniel Dociu, Kim Stanley Robinson, Elizabeth Bear (that’s me!), [...]

The magic of book day squared!

Gravity delivers.

When last we left our intrepid band–

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

I mentioned this briefly in the last post, and I think I’ll mention it again, because I could not be more thrilled: Scott’s handed in the final revisions on The Republic of Thieves, and its publication date is set for October 10th 2013 in the UK and October 8th 2013 in the US. I know [...]

A tisket, a tasket, some gorgeous cover art, Eternal Sky news, and a podcast in a basket.

Friday, February 15th, 2013

A certain amount of excitement prevails in Bearland today, as I have the cover and preorder info for Book of Iron, an Eternal Sky novella starring Bijou, of Bone & Jewel Creatures fame. It will be out from Subterranean Press in September, and preorders are available here. Book of Iron concerns itself with what happens [...]

Things. So many things.

I’ve been down with a stomach bug for a couple of days, which is no fun–it’s interfering with my attempt to return to climbing twice a week, for one thing. Still, I managed an 11 mile run last week, so it’s probably not a bad time for a little enforced rest. I’ll be skipping my [...]
