Calgary Herald: Bomb threat sends crews into action
There's no way to make this pretty. Thirty years ago today—Monday, February 23, 1987—I was arrested at Calgary International Airport, by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. (Disappointingly, no horses were involved.) I had not awakened that day planning to commit a crime. I ended the day in jail.

Perhaps tempting fate, I began my celebration today debarking from an international flight in Reykjavík, Iceland. (The flight had landed without incident.) I am now writing this post on a patio at the Blue Lagoon spa, having just spent an hour drifting around the hot-spring-fed pool with my wife, sometimes with silica mud or algae on our faces. It just started to snow.

You, on the other hand, can celebrate with me by picking up a copy of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, which explains what happened before, during, and after that fateful arrest. All ebook versions are on sale for only 99 cents! Prices are slashed on signed print editions too!

Share the gospel. Tell your friends. Happy anniversary, wherever you are.

Elder Shunn with books
Cast your mind back 30 years from today, to Sunday, February 22, 1987. This smiling 19-year-old Mormon missionary is not nearly as happy as he might look on the outside. But even so, he doesn't have the first clue how drastically his life is about to change.

But tomorrow, he'll find out. Stay tuned.

I've sold a book! Well, half a book, anyway. A dark fantasy novella, to be precise.

According to my records, it was over four years ago that Derryl Murphy dropped me a note that said:

I've had this idea rattling around in the back of my head for few months now, but the starts have been all false, and a little voice has been telling me for a while now that I should contact you. You interested in doing a short story together? It involves photography and spirituality, sorta, which might make for a nice blend between us.
I had never collaborated, except for one quite short story almost a decade before, so I had some reservations but decided to give it a try anyway.

We hammered out a basic plot, based on Derryl's initial idea and some moody photographs of graveyard statuary, and then started tossing the manuscript back and forth—veeeerrrrry slowly, since we both had a lot of other big projects going. But earlier this year we finally had a final final draft, novella length, and it was time to send the damn thing out.

It's official, or will be when the promised contract arrives in the mail. I just made my first sale to Asimov's. A 19,000-word novella no less.

The story's called "Inclination," and though it takes place a few decades earlier, it's set in the same future milieu as my Nebula-nominated novelette "Dance of the Yellow-Breasted Luddites." And it certainly won't be the last thing I write that's set on or near or in a place somehow connected to Netherview Station.

No clue yet when it will run, but publication is surely many months away.
