Wednesday

I'm too depressed and angry to talk about the election results. I am a big Wendy Davis supporter, and one of my goddaughters worked for her campaign, so.

A thing:

I'm going to be involved in a Kickstarter towards the end of the month, with several other authors. I'm not supposed to tell too much about it yet, but I am writing a new story for it, and it's going to have Reynard Morane and Nicolas Valiarde, set some time before the beginning of The Death of the Necromancer

If you missed it, I did:
Tor.com: the Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe, an SF Signal Interview, and an article at Black Gate: Black Gate Magazine: Fanfiction and Me

Signing this weekend

* I'm doing a signing Saturday November 8, 2014, at 1:00 pm for Stories of the Raksura Volume I and the paperback edition of Star Wars: Razor's Edge at Murder by the Book, in Houston, Texas.

If you can't be there, you can use this page to order a signed book from the store. They can also order The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, and The Siren Depths from them to be signed and shipped to you also, so if you wanted a signed set of all the books, say as a Christmas or other winter holiday present, this would be a good time to do it.


Sale

The Serpent Sea, the second Raksura book, is still on sale on US Kindle and Nook for a $1.99. This should end on Nov 6.

Salon: I’m not "that creepy guy from the Internet": How Gamergate gave the geek community a bad name by Arthur Chu


Book recs:

* Author J Damask/Joyce Chng is undergoing serious medical treatment right now and buying her books would really help:
Of Oysters, Pearls, and Magic - a novella set on a planet colonised by Asians–and the story of their tumultous relationship with the sea.
The Rider, Speaker - Young Adult SF. A cross between Dragons of Pern and Chinese culture–Agri-Seer Lifang never expected to ride one of the fabled Quetz; much less the depth of the bond that develops between them...
The Jan Xu series/ A Wolf's Tale - Heart of Fire - urban fantasy set in Singapore. The MC is a mother-of-two and member of a pack of Chinese werewolves.

* Tainted Blood by M.L. Brennan
Former film student Fortitude Scott is finally gainfully employed. Unfortunately, said employment happens to be with a group of sociopathic vampires-his family. And as much as Fort is loath to get too deep into the family business, when his brother, Chivalry, is temporarily unable to run the territory, it’s up to Fort to keep things under control.

* The Turning Season by Sharon Shinn
For Karadel, being a shape-shifter has always been a reality she couldn’t escape. Even though she’s built a safe life as a rural veterinarian, with a close-knit network of shifter and human friends who would do anything for her—and for each other—she can’t help but wish for a chance at being normal.

* A Play of Shadow by Julie E. Czerneda
The law forbids Bannan from leaving Marrowdell and travelling to Mellynne to help his sister. In this world. As a turn-born, Jenn Nalynn has the power to cross into the magical realm of the Verge, and take Bannan with her. Once there, they could find a way into Mellynne.

squeeeeeeeee!

and yes, after the elections, i needed some good news!

Yeah, we are at a giant good news deficit here.

The prospect of a new story with Reynard and Nicolas is the first thing that has made me smile since I looked at the news this morning. (You don't know me from Eve, but I'm a long-time admirer of your work. Tremaine Valiarde is one of my favorite fictional people, but I love the older generation as well.)

"I’m not "that creepy guy from the Internet": How Gamergate gave the geek community a bad name"

And I've long since started seeing the probably inevitable posts about how Gamergate is just another manifestation in the culture war. These posts invariably take the male privilege side. One of them even went so far as to use "Red" and "Blue". Invariably these also devolve after a few paragraphs into the typical stereotypes and soundbites of anti-feminism, women are too sensitive, and manly men need to stand up for their manly games.
