My best wishes for a happy new year to everyone reading this post. More news about forthcoming books, including new editions of The Shore of Women, soon.


Foreign Rights News

In a shameless attempt to get a few more visitors to this site, I am posting an image of the adorably cute cover of a Danish anthology in which my cat story "Out of Place" has just appeared. This charming cover art is by Manfred Christiansen. In other news, Gollancz's SF Gateway program has acquired the U.K. rights to five more of my books, among them The Shore of Women, The Golden Space, and Climb the Wind.


A Time Travel Story, Reprinted

My short story "If Ever I Should Leave You" is included in Ann and Jeff VanderMeer's massive and comprehensive anthology The Time Traveler's Almanac, now out from Head of Zeus in the U.K. in hardcover and an e-edition and scheduled to be published in the U.S. in 2014.


Another Treat for Cat People

My version of the "Puss in Boots" tale, "Puss in D.C.," is now up at StarShipSofa, narrated by Nicholas Camm and introduced by Tony C. Smith and retired Analog editor and sf writer Stanley Schmidt. You can listen to it here.


Attention, Cat People

If you are a cat fan, enjoy stories about cats, and have an e-reader, the Wildside Press Cat Megapack of 25 cat tales, including my own "Out of Place," is for you.

UPDATE: Also available are two anthologies edited by Jack Dann and Gardner Dozois that feature cats, Magicats (with "Out of Place") and Magicats II (with my story "The Mountain Cage").
