In honor of the end of winter (which is the best time to start knitting that sweater for next winter), there’s a new knit-centric essay posted. Give it a read!
First, some good news about some great people:
Also in the good news department, I found out through the grapevine that my friend Alice Henderson has been nominated for a Scribe Award for her Buffy novel “Portal Through Time.” If you see her, be sure to send congratulations!
Finally, the inimitable Richard Dansky is featured in a new anthology — “Astounding Hero Tales” features not only Richard’s story, but new material by such huge pulp names as Hugh B. Cave and Lester Dent.
From our “Have you seen me?” desk
A quote by yours truly appears in the new book by Annie Modesitt and Drew Emborsky “Men Who Knit & The Dogs Who Love Them.” It’s a great book, with some lovely patterns that are neither too traditional nor too ‘funky.’ Check it out regardless of your gender.
From the “Shameless Self-Promotion” desk
My story, “Return, My Heart, to the Sea” is scheduled to appear in Sails & Sorcery: Nautical Tales of Fantasy, published by Fantasist Enterprises, independent publisher of illustrated fantasy books. I’ve talked about it before, but this is the big announcement, with cover art and the like up on the site. I’d be excited about this even if I wasn’t in the anthology…
Keeping up (with) Appearances
The next big event on my horizon is the 2007 World Horror Convention. That’s in just two short weeks at the end of March and the beginning of April. Hopefully I’ll see a few of you there!
