  1. The Jump 225 Jumbo Mega-Bonanza Summer Giveaway  • 
    Every week for the next four weeks, I'm going to hold a contest here on my blog. And the winner of each contest will receive copies of "Infoquake," "MultiReal," "The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, Volume Two," and Mervyn Peake's "Titus Alone." Read the full article for details.
  2. Grasping for the Wind: “MultiReal” the “Empire Strikes Back” of the Jump 225 Trilogy  • 
    Two new reviews for "MultiReal" have hit the web. The Grasping for the Wind blog compares the book to "The Empire Strikes Back," saying it's better than its predecessor; SFCrowsnest, meanwhile, criticizes the book for plot confusion and trying to stuff too much information between two covers.
  3. Martiniere Wallpapiere  • 
    Solaris Books is offering "Infoquake" wallpaper on the Downloads section of their website. So if you've ever wanted a hi-res closeup of Stephan Martiniere artwork on your desktop, now's your chance.
  4. Jara Learns to Love Her Inner Demon  • 
    This afternoon, I discovered that Jara, the co-protagonist of "Infoquake" and "MultiReal," has landed an interview with a former succubus on novelist Jackie Kessler's website.
  5. Harriet Klausner Speeds Through Praise for “MultiReal”  • 
    Harriet Klausner, the #1 customer reviewer on Amazon, has given her stamp of approval to "MultiReal." (Of course, if you know anything about Harriet Klausner, you'll take her word with a "2001" monolith-sized chunk of salt.)
  6. It’s Not Real… It’s “MultiReal”  • 
    A copy of my latest novel "MultiReal" is literally sitting in my lap as I type this, having arrived from the publisher today. Here are some of my thoughts and first impressions.
  7. On Self-Promotion  • 
    I'm seeing a lot of people picking on Cory Doctorow for being a self-promotional whore, and it's irritating the piss out of me. These complainers need to understand that the twentieth century paradigm of advertising and promotion where the content sits on one side of the page, and the advertisements sit on the other side of the page, and there's a nice clear line separating the two, is dead.
  8. Tim Russert: 1950-2008  • 
    I'll always remember Tim Russert as he was on the night of November 7, 2000, the night of the Bush/Gore elections, scribbling furiously on that dry erase board.
  9. In What Order Should You Read the Series?  • 
    In what order should you read an SF/F series, and why? It's an especially pertinent question to genre fiction, because serial storytelling is so much a part of what we do. It matters deeply whether the Empire struck back before or after the clones attacked.
  10. Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist “MultiReal” Giveaway  • 
    Pat's Fantasy Hotlist, the fine SF review website that brought you the recent "Infoquake" giveaway -- not to mention the fine SF review website that recently called said book "one of the very best science fiction debuts I have ever read" -- is now giving away three copies of "MultiReal."
