A Foreign Sale

I have the contract and an advance check for a new Spanish edition of my historical novel Ruler of the Sky, first published in Spain in 1994 (as Gengis Kan: El soberano del cielo). Ediciones Pàmies in Madrid is the new publisher.


A New Paperback Edition

My 2015 novel Season of the Cats is now out in a trade paperback edition from Wildside Press and available from Amazon, independent bookstores, and from the publisher here

James Morrow had this to say about the novel: “Pamela Sargent has given us a delectable confection, wrought from an irresistible recipe: a dash of Fritz Leiber, a touch of Neil Gaiman, a dollop of Roald Dahl—plus a full measure of her characteristic adroit plotting and compelling prose. At once whimsical and sardonic, Season of the Cats will enchant all fans of off-beat fantasy.”

And Pat Cadigan, twice winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, commented: “This is a sneaky book. You think you’re reading it; it’s actually stalking you. This is a story that may seem familiar at first but that’s only how it pulls you in. Trust me, you’re about to be unsettled in ways you never imagined.”



The Watchstar Trilogy

The three novels in my Watchstar trilogy, first published during the 1980s, will be available as a set of ebooks at a bargain price at all U.S. retailers on August 29, 2018. But anyone who would like to read them sooner can get them at a good price now from my ebooks publisher, Open Road Media. The page for that trilogy is here, and I'll mention that my Venus trilogy is also now available as a set from Open Road. (And a good thing, too, as the Venus novels are very long and maybe more easily perused on an ereader.) 


A Recent Study of Terraforming in Science Fiction

This review, published in Strange Horizons, of a recent book about terraforming in science fiction mentions a number of works on this theme, including my Venus novels. That book, which sounds like a fascinating and detailed study of the subject (although probably too expensive for anyone besides wealthy readers and libraries to purchase), is Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction and the author is Chris Pak


Holiday Book Deals

Open Road Media is offering a number of ebooks at low prices during December, among them my novel Child of Venus, the third volume of my Venus trilogy. The first two novels, Venus of Dreams and Venus of Shadows, are also available from Open Road. Readers interested in purchasing autographed paper copies (hardcover or paperback) should contact me by email.
