tacithydra has a post on the battle for marriage equality in Maine: The anti-marriage campaigners hired the same public relations firm that helped to pass Proposition 8 in California to help them run the referendum effort. They also started lying to get signatures:

Gerard Caron walked into the Auburn Post Office and was met by a woman with a pair of clipboards. "This petition is against gay marriage and this other petition is to support gay marriage," she said, according to Caron. The Poland man said he asked her why there would be a petition to support something that already happened, referring to the petition "in support of" gay marriage. "She just kinda gave me a little grin and didn't say anything," he said. Then he looked at the two petitions and discovered they were identical, both were supporting the repeal of the same-sex marriage law, Caron said.


Foreign edition update:

The German edition of The Death of the Necromancer is going to be released again in January in a paperback edition for 8,95 euros -- it's up for preorder now.

All three books of the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy (The Wizard Hunters, The Ships of Air, and The Gate of Gods) are still available in the French editions with lovely covers.

The French edition of The Gate of Gods from l'Atalante (translated by Anne Belle, cover by Amandine Labarre) is going to be available late next month, on Amazon.fr and other French retail outlets. Yay!


My auction for the helpvera comm (for signed hardcover copies of The Wizard Hunters, The Ships of Air, and The Gate of Gods) is still going on, and ends December 20, Saturday.

I think I have everything done for Christmas except the 1) shopping for Christmas dinner food and 2) waiting for stuff I ordered last week to finally show up in the mail. I may do the shopping part today, since it's rainy but back up into the 70s, so I won't freeze my ass off.

Wow, this cover is beautiful. It's the French edition of The Ships of Air from l'Atalante:



It's available at Amazon.fr.


Also, The Element of Fire is now available for free download in a variety of eBook formats at ManyBooks.net. It's also on my web site, but only in HTML.

It looks like the The Year's Best Fantasy #7 (Tachyon Publications) is starting to show up in various places. The story I have in it is "The Potter's Daughter," which was published in 2006 in the Tsunami relief anthology Elemental. It's a prequel to The Element of Fire, about Kade.

It's at Barnes and Noble, Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon.ca, Amazon.de, or you can find it at a local independent book store through Booksense.


Also, The Element of Fire is out again in the French mass market edition Amazon.fr here. I was not born in 1954, that's a typo.

ActuSF

ActuSF, a French SF/F website, has just posted an interview with me. There's an English version and a French translation.

The Death of the Necromancer just came out in mass market paperback in French. The French trade paperback edition was published a few years ago by l'Atalante. They've also done The Element of Fire and The Wizard Hunters.

Back from Nantes

I'm back, and the trip and Utopiales was completely fabulous. I love France a lot, and Nantes especially. The people were wonderful, and my French publisher is wonderful, the food is OMG wonderful, and I had a fantastic time. I just hope my pictures come out.

I'll post more later, but I want to tell one story really quickly. I was talking to Jean-Francois Le Ruyet, who translated K.J. Bishop's book The Etched City for l'Atalante, and he was telling me about a translated noir/detective novel he was reading that had a bar in northern California with no roof. And he was trying to figure out what that was about, since it rains so much there and the idea seemed so weird and impractical. When he finally read the original English edition, he found a lot of other problems with the translation, but that bar wasn't a bar with no roof, it was a topless bar.


Oh, and someone had asked about getting the French editions (I'm incredibly behind on answering comments) but here's the links for Amazon.fr: The Element of Fire, The Death of the Necromancer, and The Wizard Hunters.

And I know Reliquary has been sold out on Amazon US and UK and Barnes and Noble for a while, but Amazon.fr has copies of the English edition in stock.
