Book Things

Thanks to everyone for the happy anniversary wishes! We went out and had a great dinner to celebrate. Today I'm writing Raksura and really hoping we get some rain. It's been way too long without. (This area used to be so rainy in the fall, it was like living in an aquarium.)

I want to do the outside Halloween decorations at some point, too.


First off: Baen is selling eARCs of the newest Lois Bujold book, Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, not due out until February THIS IS NOT A DRILL http://www.baenebooks.com/c-2-advance-reader-copies.aspx


* Fundraiser for writer Rochita Loenen-Ruiz: https://www.gofundme.com/fundsforrochita
Rochita Loenen-Ruiz is a Filipina writer of fantasy and science fiction who lives in the Netherlands. Her stories have been published in Interzone, Clarkesworld, the Philippine Speculative Fiction series and other venues, and she write a non-fiction column for Strange Horizons, among many, many other activities. Her life is currently going through some upheavals, and she and her family could really use some help with their finances. Rochita has always been very generous with her time and always seeking to help and support the community in whatever way she could, and we would love for the community to help her now--in whatever way you can afford, we know it's not always easy! As a thank-you for your help, we've put together some rewards for donors:

* Kickstarter: Spanish Women of Wonder: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1815756115/spanish-women-of-wonder
Welcome to the Spanish Women of Wonder Kickstarter! We are seeking your help to bring our anthology to the English-speaking world. Eleven amazing science fiction stories that should be known and read beyond Spanish-speaking borders! Last December, editors Cristina Jurado and Leticia Lara gathered ten wonderful science fiction stories written in Spanish by very talented women. We got more than 200 stories from female authors from 12 countries, and we selected 10 for this project. Brilliant Argentinian author Angélica Gorodischer very graciously offered one of her own great stories to be part of Spanish Women of Wonder (“Alucinadas”, in Spanish!) and the fantastic Ann VanderMeer wrote the best foreword ever. We already have a professional translator, Sue Burke, specialized in science fiction and fantasy, engaged to start the project.

Huh. I knew the new Bujold was coming. I'm not sure I'll buy an eARC, but I think I'll buy the book when it comes out after reading the sample chapters.
