Found out this morning that I'm in an article in the Austin American Statesman, yay! I think it's on women SF/F writers in Texas. We're trying to find a copy in town, but hopefully it'll go up on the newspaper's web site at some point.


In the meantime, Patrice Sarath posted short reviews of The Cloud Roads, plus Never Knew Another by J.M. McDermott, Of Blood and Honey by Stina Leicht, Revolution World, by Katy Stauber, and Deathless by Catherynne Valente


Spend $4.99 to help Kids Need to Read get a donation possibly as high as $100,000: Making Sure That Kids Have The Books They Need To Read...
When I agreed to join the Advisory Board of Kids Need To Read, the excellent charity founded by pals PJ Haarsma and Nathan Fillion, I had already done a number of fundraisers for them (including raising nearly a thousand dollars just for posting an old photo of myself online), so I was already supportive of their work and their goals. Donating money to this worthy charity would be very worthwhile, as would my donating copies of my book for the schools they serve - so I'm going to do both.


Last week, Destination Truth did an episode where they visited Antarctica, and it was really interesting. They went there to ostensibly investigate ghost legends in the abandoned research stations along the coast, but the coolest thing about it was the trip itself. They sailed there on a 54-foot motorized sailboat, visited and toured the Russian station (where nine lonely Russian scientists were very happy to have company for dinner), the Ukrainian station (which has a bar built from wood that was supposed to be used for a new pier), the British station (not nearly as fun as the Russians and Ukrainians) and explored the abandoned stations. It was just a very cool and interesting episode.

Anyway, here's the link to the episode on SciFi channel: Destination Truth: Ghosts of Antarctica
