So about that awesome news I mentioned– I have just licensed world rights (including translation and audio) for two far-future Big-Idea space operas to Simon Spanton at Gollancz. The first, entitled Ancestral Night, will be out in autumn of 2016. The Gollancz press release is here. I’m thrilled!

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 [...]
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 [...]
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.

It’s Book day, busting out all over! Of course, today is US launch day* for my own Shattered Pillars, second in the Eternal Sky trilogy.

Shattered Pillars is out tomorrow in the US! (Probably already available today in many fine bookstores, because it’s not a hard on-sale date.) Book Two of the Eternal Sky trilogy continues the story of Re Temur, exiled heir to his grandfather’s Khaganate, and the Wizard Samarkar, Once-Princess of the Rasan Empire, as they struggle to [...]
