Last time I had the oldest books I'd written. This time, while
not the most recently written, the newest published in ebook.
And Fate of the Kinunir is the most recent sf space yarn.
Do check it out. Rousing space opera, space battles, pirates,
insurrection, it's got everything!
The past week has been working and getting new projects lined
up. I'm pushing ahead with some stories for Don Juan and Miguel.
Not sure when this will be done but I'm hoping to have something
for them by the time they go to the Sterling Renaissance Fair.
Looked over Rick Overwater's "Cold Eggs and Whiskey,"
his story in the forthcoming weird western anthology set to debut
at the Calgary Stampede. Creepy stuff. This is going to be a dynamite
anthology. And my "Sciamachy" will be in there, too.
This is a cautionary tale of greed, gold prospectors and ancient
Have been getting some great interest in a new concept in online
fiction. Mike Stackpole's The Mysterious Islands is taking
shape (as we struggle through the mists to get there).
You want 230k+ words of sheer enjoyment? For not too much? And
the money you spend goes to help author CJ Henderson pay off huge
medical bills from his bout with non-Hodgkins lymphoma? Check
Like a Monkey right now. It runs to the end of the month,
but sooner is better since that kicks up the stretch goals. As
is, you get stories from Joe Haldeman, Kevin Anderson, Mike Stackpole,
Nancy Holder, Mike Resnick, Tim Zahn, Jack Dann and huge numbers
of others (including yhos).

My e-books on the catalog

iPad viewing: Still working on Waking the Dead and the
Borgias. And have started Borgia, a different series.
But best was True Detective, an HBO entry into the gobsmacking
miniseries of all time category. Amazingly well acted and so tightly
plotted it's like the Monty Python shrink that yells "everything
counts!" Its 8 episodes fit together beautifully. I am following
this up with a so far so good Crossing Lines, which is
a mission impossible setup chasing an international serial killer
iPad reading: Got the 25-title Tom Swift Sr megapack. All the
books are free but I plunked down the $1 for the work it took
someone to aggregate them.
iPad listening: Via Pandora, on the Abney Park channel. I read
that Captain Robert has a new book out (tie in with an album,
I suspect) but the reviews on AP's first book deter me. Has anyone
Wrath of Fate? Seems that "poorly written" might
also translate into no copyediting.
Regular cable stuff: Face Off and the season finale on
Lost Girl. Series finale for Warehouse 13 is imminent.
Sorry to see all the secondary characters (and HG Wells!) go,
but HG is back in Defiance which I find hard to get into.
Earth 2 and its ilk just don't appeal to me as an idea,
for whatever reason.
