  1. Whatta Fiasco… The Book’s Got a Glossary!  • 
    Why do some people have problems with the glossaries and appendices in genre fiction books?
  2. “Solaris Book of New SF” Reviewed on SF Signal  • 
    SF Signal today has posted a review of George Mann's anthology "The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, Volume Two," which you'll recall contains my story "Mathralon," which you'll recall is available online.
  3. Money, Madness, and Munchausen  • 
    The 20th anniversary edition of "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" delivers everything you expect in a Terry Gilliam film: visual surrealism, distrust of authority, antipathy to soulless reason, and a skewed sense of humor, plus an inside look at the Hollywood squabbling behind the movie.
  4. Nick Sagan Gives Advance Praise for “MultiReal”  • 
    Nick Sagan, author of "Idlewild," "Edenborn," and "Everfree," screenwriter for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Voyager," and former child ambassador to the universe on the Voyager Golden Record, has read and blurbed my novels "Infoquake" and "MultiReal."
  5. The Agony Column on “MultiReal”  • 
    Just happened to catch the latest Agony Column from the incomparable Rick Kleffel, and he's chosen to headline today with a brief look at "MultiReal." I'm unclear whether Rick has actually read the book yet, but he's taken the occasion to say some nice things about the Jump 225 trilogy in general.

    Why is so much technology so goddamn fragile? Most software can't repair itself -- and even when it can do rudimentary repair work, like replacing accidentally deleted files or Windows Registry entries, it's not smart enough to know when it needs repairing.
  7. The “Infoquake” Mass Market Has Arrived  • 
    I am extraordinarily proud to give you the first look at the mass market version of "Infoquake," the first copy of which arrived in my mailbox yesterday. For the inordinately curious, you can also see the spreadsheet of the 155 changes I made to the text from the trade paperback edition.
  8. About the New Website Design  • 
    You might notice something different. Yes, it's that new website that I've been mentioning for months and months now. I actually started soliciting feedback on the DeepGenre blog way back in December. And now you can see the results here. You might also want to take the opportunity to poke around the redesigned "Infoquake" and "MultiReal" websites.
  9. The Website, It Is A-Changin’  • 
    See? I told you I was working on a new design. But don’t get too excited yet. There’s still a lot of stuff broken, so keep that in mind if you start clicking around. Hopefully I’ll have everything fixed soon, and then I’ll be back to tell you allllll about it.
  10. “Infoquake” Reviewed on Fast Forward  • 
    No, really, seriously. I plan to post more substantial blog posts soon. And have a new redesign. I swear. But in the meantime… Fast Forward, the local cable TV show devoted to science fiction based in the Washington, DC area, has given Infoquake a glowing review.
