Steles of Sky starred Kirkus review; Audie Award noms!

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

And to complete my heaviest blogging day in years, I think, a couple of cool things! First off, Kirkus starred review of Steles of the Sky!! Spoilers for the whole freaking series, so be cautious of your clickthrough. But the takeaway makes it all worthwhile: Considering the trilogy as a whole, the overused term masterpiece justifiably [...]

Did that go well? I think that went well.

(Photo credit Andrew Williams, via flickr) The SF Squeecast has won its second and final Hugo*! I don’t think I could be more pleased, quite frankly. Thank you, fandom, for justifying the underpinnings required by that dress… not to mention what I went through packing it. Worldcon was insanely busy and stressful but also awesome in [...]

Three book covers and an award

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

So… while I was at ALA, I seem to have won a Locus Award. Best Collection, for Shoggoths in Bloom. *sparkles* The complete list is here, and I’m thrilled both to be included and by the winners. (I totally voted for Aliette’s story over my own. Don’t tell.) Congratulations, everybody! In other news, two and [...]

4th Street, Readercon, Gemmell Award, BOOK OF IRON, and shameless self-promotion is shameless.

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

I came home from the convention to the news that Range of Ghosts has been longlisted for the Gemmell Award (formally, the David Gemmell Legend Awards), which is (1) thrilling! and (2) ironically wonderful, since I just finished reading Legend last week. The way this works is that publishers nominate for the long list, and [...]

Today was a good day.

I have my first pair of new glasses since 2009. I can see leaves on trees! And freckles on the lovely person who helped fit my glasses! In other news, I am apparently nominated for four separate Locus awards in four separate Locus award categories: Novella, novelette, short story, and collection. All three of the [...]

Yay awards and things!

I’m thrilled that Range of Ghosts is the 2012 Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Epic Fantasy! The other SF/F category winners are John Scalzi and N. K. Jemisin. Yay books!

Good news on the Range of Ghosts front…

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Range of Ghosts is a Tiptree Honor Book! And also the recipient of an awesome review over at A Dribble of Ink. This year’s Tiptree Award winners are: The Drowning Girl, a Memoir, by Caitlin R. Kiernan (my personal choice for the best SFF novel published last year!) and Ancient, Ancient by Kiini Ibura Salaam. [...]

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 [...]

Worldcon, Worldcon, Worldcon, Squeecast, Worldcon.

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

So. I have survived Chicago and am safe back at my dear Mr. Lynch’s place in western Wisconsin. And as you may have heard by now, the SF Squeecast both did a live recording (with Sarah Monette and Jay Lake as guests) and won a Hugo. photo credit: tor.com I had an amazing con, despite [...]

We call this a success.

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

First things first: It’s publication day for Chicks Dig Comic Books, edited by Lynne Thomas and Sigrid Ellis. Here’s a picture of my long-suffering, desperately-in-need-of-a-bath dog with a pile of awesome nonfiction on his back. The anthology includes “You’re on the Global Frequency,” my essay about how Warren Ellis wants you to save the world, [...]
