Michael Knost, Bram Stoker Award-winning writer and genuinely nice guy (he chauffeured George Zebrowski and me around the University of Kansas during the 2006 Campbell Conference and made us feel as though we were doing him a favor) has edited a new anthology, Writers Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy, which includes essays and interviews with some of sf's best-known writers and editors. This isn't just a book for aspiring writers; even oldtimers can learn a few things from the contributors. George's contribution is "Middles," and mine is "Talking Too Much, or Not Enough: Dialogue in Science Fiction and Fantasy." Writers Workshop is out in paper and electronic editions and available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, and independent bookstores.
A new interview with me is now out in a book of interviews conducted by Jennifer Thorpe-Moscon, How Geek Girls Will Rule the World, and it's available here. Other writers interviewed are Esther Friesner, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Anne Rice, and Lisa Tuttle. The book can also be purchased in paperback and as an e-book at Amazon.
...and I haven't abandoned this blog. After filing my taxes, I'll be back when there's something to report or post about. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in signed and inscribed mint copies of first editions of my books in hardcover or paperback, please let me know, and here's how to do so: just scroll down for info.
