Quite write, you're bloody well write

I was recently interviewed by Amy Brozio-Andrews for the Absolute Write newsletter. I learned today that the interview will run in the December 6th issue. I can't wait to be reminded what I said.

The most recent Absolute Write interivew is with, um, Richard Ford. But my interview was not conducted at the Four Seasons.

Inclined toward inclusion

I mentioned this last week in a locked post, but wanted to mention it for the benefit of the world at large now that it's more or less official.

My novella "Inclination" has been selected by Rich Horton for the next edition of his Prime Books anthology Science Fiction: The Best of the Year. The company is damn fine, as you can see from this almost complete table of contents that publisher Sean Wallace has posted. I am thrilled to my very bones to be included!

Nice things

In Rich Horton's roundup of Asimov's for the year, he has kind things to say about "Inclination." I see at least three other Blue Heaveners mentioned, including [info]paulmelko, [info]tim_pratt, and [info]gregvaneekhout. Did I miss anyone?

An alternate history of the 21st century

So plans for the chapbook from Spilt Milk Press are proceeding. John Klima and I are hashing out the table of contents, but the tentative plan is that the little book will collect six of my near-future SF stories—four previously published, two new.

Publication date: May 2007? Stay tuned!

It's a black and white world

My review of the new French animated film Renaissance (opening today in selected U.S. cities) is available now at Sci Fi Weekly.

(Also, you should check out the English and original French versions of the movie web site. I like the French version of the trailer better, even though I don't understand most of it.)
