First, good news for me! I've sold another story to Black Gate Magazine. It's called "Rites of Passage" and is another Giliead and Ilias story, set before the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy. (The other stories are in issues 10, 11, and 12.)

Couple of authors I remembered I wanted to recommend:

Steven Barnes. He has a book about to come out in paperback from Del Rey Great Sky Woman
The Booklist review: This prehistorical novel set in Africa introduces readers to the Ibandi, a peaceful tribe living in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, or the Great Sky Mountain. When their lives are interrupted by invasions from a brutal neighboring tribe, it falls to two youngsters, Frog Hopping, the third son of a hunter, and T'Cori, an apprentice herb woman, to climb the Great Sky Mountain and seek help from Father Sky. Barnes does a magnificent job of thoroughly grounding his engaging characters in the practical and mystical details of daily life in ancient Africa. An adventure on a grand scale, this initial installment in a projected two-volume series cleverly sets the stage for further action and will leave readers craving more. The second part is coming out in May, according to Amazon.

Laura Joh Rowland has a long series of mystery novels set in feudal Japan that are really good. She also has a new non-series mystery The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte which I'm going to order as soon as I can afford it.

YAY! This is Very Good News, and just what I needed after an 80-minute train ride that should have taken 20.

Congrats on the sale! I can't wait to read it, and am definitely renewing my Black Gate subscription after this news. :-)

Thanks! And OMG, 80-minute train ride?

The good news is, I wasn't on the train that apparently caught fire...

(Also, I repeat, yay! I hope more good things happen for you shortly. ;-)

Ack, yeah, a long ride is better than a fire.

And thanks!

Hurrah for the sale! So glad to hear it.

Congratulations, that's wonderful!

Yay new Black Gate story!

I eagerly await the new Black Gate. I must dig up the last one and read the rest of it too. I think I moved in the middle of going through it, and never got to much beyond yours and a couple of other favourites.

Thanks! I don't know what issue this story will be in yet, but I'll post when I find out.

Yay!
I love those guys.

Not as much as I love Nicholas and Tremaine, but I love 'em anyway.

Congratulations! And it's good news for Black Gate, too!

I really like Laura Joh Rowland's Japan mysteries. My only problem is that I don't have all of them yet.

They do tend to have endings that lead into the next book, which is great if you have the next book right there.
