I’ll be on the one n’ only Jim Freund’s Hour of the Wolf radio show tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. (!)….that’s 99.5 FM Pacifica within the NY metro area, or streaming right here. Those lazy SF fans who wish to sleep in can nonetheless catch the show for the next two weeks by heading over to the show archives. Meanwhile, I’ll be loading up on caffeine….

So I’m flying out to Comic-Con tomorrow for a signing at the Bantam booth tomorrow (Friday) at 5 p.m., followed by a panel Saturday at 4:30 (“Welcome to the Future: Are you Sure you Want To Stay?”). Since GoH Samuel Delany is also on that panel, my answer right now is yes, because the man rocks.
Meanwhile, hot off the wire, here’s a review of MIRRORED HEAVENS by the Mad Hatter, followed by one of MACHINERY OF LIGHT by Cliff’s 52 Books in 52 Weeks. And then I’ll be back to Sekrit Projects #1 and #2, both of which are picking up steam….stay tuned, and/or see you in San Diego!
Just got back from a week in Wyoming at Mike Brotherton’s Launch Pad workshop, an intensive NASA-sponsored workshop for pro SF writers. It was a fantastic week, and not just because it allowed me to escape the tropical humidity that D.C. has been plunged into for what seems like eons. Awesome lectures, brilliant stargazing, and unforgettable people….and thanks to fellow scribe Jeremiah Tolbert you see the attached picture of all of us.

My latest post is up at Tor.com….this week, Top Secret.
Thanks to the good offices of fellow scribe Alex J. Cavanaugh, I’m the July featured author on Prinkipia, which has reprinted the interview that Alex conducted with me a couple weeks back, omitting only a few curse words that I’m sure I don’t remember.
Meanwhile, I leave this weekend for Launch Pad in Wyoming, where me and a bunch of other SF writers will be blowing our minds on the wonders of the cosmos all week. Not to mention beating the #$# D.C. heat….
Hope everybody had a good holiday weekend. It’s so hot in D.C. that my cats wish they had no fur, but that’s another story. As to today’s business:
Second, Cybermage has named Claire Haskell as one of the “Formidable Female Protagonists in Science Fiction”. Can’t say I disagree.
Third, Rico Dostie of TreksinSciFi and I had a great podcast conversation last week about the books, even though I was more than a little jetlagged at the time.
Fourth, the Falcata Times has weighed in with a review of the entire trilogy, calling it a “real treat” and a “top author recommendation for the year.”
See you manyana at Borders…
