It's Been A While (Updatery MK III)

Tomorrow, 11/29/2017, I have an author event of Facebook, where I am the 'featured author' for Chuck Gannon's anthology, Lost Signals. I aim to entertain, and talk about Crate 88, the short story I wrote for the anthology.

December 17th, the paperback edition of 1636: Mission To The Mughals, comes out.  Almost every SF book I had as a kid was in paperback, and much as I love the feel of a hardcover in hand, the arrival of the mass market paperback of my book is a source of true excitement for me.

My short story, Bank On It the first I ever submitted for publication, has been selected for the Ring Of Fire VIII anthology.

I have submitted another short, Alpha Gamers for yet another anthology, this one in John Ringo's Black Tide Rising Universe. Hopefully Alpha Gamers will see print in 2019 if not sooner.

So, for a writer of novels, it seems I am having some success with short stories...The irony flattens my ego, a bit, but it's good to be in print, so I am not complaining, not one bit!

A Kind and Generous Fellow

My friend Robert Buettner, whose new book, The Golden Gate, is out now, was interviewed on the Baen Podcast along with Toni Weisskopf. Robert gave me and the department I work for a very kind shout-out for the help we gave him in researching the book.

A bit of a departure from Robert's usual style, The Golden Gate is a near-future thriller that I found engrossing and original. The book is excellent, and I highly recommend it.
