Many Things


* Our Lady of the Ice by Cassandra Rose Clarke out 10/27
The Yiddish Policeman’s Union meets The Windup Girl when a female PI goes up against a ruthless gangster—just as both humans and robots agitate for independence in an Argentinian colony in Antarctica.

* Dragon Dancer by Joyce Chng
It is the eve of Chinese New Year. Lanterns are hung in the shopping malls of Singapore and Yao is preparing to wake the ancient sky dragon, Shen Long, from his year-long sleep. From the moment Shen Long opens his great amber eyes and unfurls his silver-blue tail, Yao will be propelled on a magical journey through the skies of Singapore to battle the bad luck of the previous year and usher in the good. Will he succeed? Will his grandfather watch over him and protect him from harm? A beautiful story of a Chinese festival and its symbolism for Chinese communities everywhere, told from the perspective of Yao, the dragon dancer.

* Kickstarter: The Star Beneath by Judith Tarr
In 2013 I Kickstarted one of my favorites of all my books, Forgotten Suns. The most common question everyone has asked since is, "Will there be a sequel?" Yes, there is! We’re back, with more ancient mysteries, more marvels and piracies, and more sentient starships (plural!)—with new characters along with the old favorites, and a new adventure across space, subspace, and the multiverse.

* Kickstarter: Red Hot Rain A new Weather Warden novel by Rachel Caine
RED HOT RAIN starts a few years after the end of TOTAL ECLIPSE, in a world that seems to finally be settled. Mother Earth isn't mad at us. The Djinn have kissed and made up (sometimes literally) with the Wardens, and the two sides work together to solve whatever problems do arise. All good, right? Nope.


Authors Roundtable at SFF World

* I'm doing an Authors Roundtable at SFF World with Seanan McGuire and Kevin J. Anderson: http://www.sffworld.com/forum/threads/authors-of-the-roundtable-kevin-j-anderson-martha-wells-and-seanan-mcguire-mira-grant.47660/#post-770666 It'll go from today October 18th through October 21, so come on over and ask us questions. So far I've answered questions on food, main characters, media tie-ins, my public profile (short answer - I don't have one) and reviews, etc.


Saturday, November 7 at 5:00: Join fantasy authors Martha Wells, Stina Leicht, Amanda Downum, Patrice Sarath, and J. M. McDermott at the Twig Book Shop (306 Pearl Parkway, Suite 106 - San Antonio, TX 78215). There should be copies of all the Raksura books, plus the two Emilie books, plus Star Wars: Razor's Edge paperbacks. You can call the store and order signed books, for yourself or as holiday presents.

I know it's early to think about holiday shopping, but if you do want signed books to give as presents, this is a good opportunity. Also, you can get signed bookplates from me directly by sending me a self-addressed stamped envelope and a note letting me know 1) how many bookplates 2) signed or personalized 3) what name to personalize them to. (My contact info for that is on my web site here.) Or you can send me your own book plates to sign, as long as you include a self-addressed stamped envelope. (This time of year I can barely afford my own postage let alone other people's.)
