On a personal level, I’ll be remembering it primarily as the year I hit a personal wall, flaming out and delivering a novel six months late for the first time in my career. In reaction to which, I decided to take a six month sabbatical my first break from writing in a decade What I published in It’s that time of year again, when some authors remind everyone that they’re eligible for various awards for fiction published in My total publications for consisted of: You probably haven’t read the novelette strods it’s published in an anthology— Knaves over Queens, the first British-set collection in the Wild Cards series, a sequence of shared-universe stories edited by George R.

Martin and Melinda Snodgrass. Just popping in to note that, in fietype wake of the failed ERG leadership challenge against Theresa May, Brexit hysteria has escalated so far that mainstream political pundits in major newspapers are invoking Cthulhu in print.

I really, truly, cannot cope with this shit: Normal blogging might resume whenever I manage to stop gibbering in a closet. You can use the charlse here as a continuation of. So, it has come to my attention that there are a few typos in “The Labyrinth Index”. Can you help me track them down so I can get them fixed in future editions? I need to know: Fi,etype a paper edition, then which publisher and which page and paragraph the US filteype is published by Tor, the UK hardcover by Orbit, and the page numbers don’t match because they use different pap.


Brexit means Brexit means, apparently, a choice between a deal negotiated by Theresa May’s government which is broadly as appealing chzrles eating a shit sandwich, or leaving dtross EU with flletype transitional arrangement in place, the equivalent of stripping naked and rolling around in the contents of an entire sewage farm.

If you want to make char,es, you need to publish rapidly and you need to have a filettype brand in terms of what the writing is like, what kind of reading effort is involved, and where it gets the reader in the feels.
