The Kirkus review for Karen Memory is in, and they loved it enough to make my name a terrible pun. KAREN MEMORY Steampunk: Something of a new venture for Bear, whose previous output (Steles of the Sky, 2014, etc.) has ranged from heroic fantasy to science fiction, often with an embedded murder mystery. By the [...]

My Moscow Metro dog organlegging story, “This Chance Planet,” is live at Tor.com! (I would have mentioned it yesterday, but I was on airplanes.) And now that I’ve dropped a giant graphic in your internets and presumably have your attention (art by Robert Hunt), it’s time to reveal some titles! The titling gnomes have finally [...]
It’s a cover reveal and some terrible teasing! A couple of weeks ago, I had an emergency need for some amazing art, and I naturally emailed my friend Jenna Kass, a NYC-based illustrator. I had in mind licensing an old piece of hers, but she was no longer satisfied with the quality of that work, [...]
Bless me internets, for I have sinned. It has been over three months since my last post. In that time, I’ve been to seven (7) different countries, seen two books published, and seen more conventions and book signings than I can completely remember. I did bring you something to make up for it, though! “Covenant,” [...]
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. 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 [...]
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!), [...]
Shattered Pillars is available as an audiobook now! And “Mongoose,” a Boojumverse story written by Sarah Monette and me, is available for free online at Clarkesworld.
