Still not dead. Still worse than ever about updating. It’s a new year, maybe I’ll be better at that, but don’t hold your breath.
I’m happy to announce that my story “Code Duello” will be included in the anthology New Ceres Nights due out in April from Twelfth Planet Press. There’ll be a launch party at SwanCon in scenic (and very far away from me) Perth, Western Australia, but if you can’t make that you’ll still be able to find a copy at online retailers, or directly from the publisher.
What’s New Ceres Nights, you ask? It’s a anthology of stories set in a shared world where the future is our past, a place where science fiction collides head-on with the Belle Epoch. I’ll let the press release say the rest:
“New Ceres is precarious: its New Enlightenment constrains society as well as liberating old thoughts and literature and drinking customs. The planet plays interstellar politics to defend its independence and it recruits refugees from Old Earth and the conquered New Alliance planets to maintain some dangerous habits.”
I’ve seen the proofs and it’s lovely, plus, you know, me. Always a bonus in my book.
Keeping up with Appearances:
My public calendar just keeps getting more full – Interested parties can find me at Mo*Con IV from May 15-17 in scenic Indianapolis, IN. In August, I will return to Indy for another appearance in Gen Con’s infamous Author’s Alley where I’ll be signing copies of New Ceres Nights as well as Sails and Sorcery. At the end of the year, I’ll be crossing the country to San Jose, and this year’s World Fantasy Convention, so if you happen to see me, be sure to say hello.
