  1. Mini-Essay on the Internet and Publishing on SF Signal  • 
    I’ve got a mini-essay (three paragraphs) up today in the new “Mind Meld” feature of SF Signal. The question was about how the Internet has impacted publishing and the author’s ability to sell more books.

  2. The Plot to Understand Second Life  • 
    Last night I had the privilege of attending a reading and interview of renowned science fiction author Paul Levinson in support of his book "The Plot to Save Socrates" on Second Life. And after attending Paul's Second Life event, I can now officially say I don't get it.
  3. Peter Watts Praises “MultiReal”  • 
    I had been planning to unveil this news at a later time closer to the book’s July release date. But I just browsed to the Amazon page for MultiReal and saw that the news is already out.

  5. World Fantasy Convention 2007, Days 3-4  • 
    Alas, all the late night boozin' and schmoozin' has caught up with me. I'm sick. As a dog is sick, so I, too, am sick. So I will complete my report here of the goings-on at World Fantasy by summarizing the last two days of the con.
  6. World Fantasy Convention 2007, Day 2  • 
    The organizers of WFC 2007 are rat bastards who deserve to be strung up by their own intestines. Why? Because they handed out free boxes of concentrated Seduction to everyone attending the con, in the form of Freihofer’s chocolate chip cookies. You’ve heard it said that human beings are merely an efficient transportation system for […]

Williams, Tom Doyle, and Raani Graff. I rubbed elbows and said […]
  8. My World Fantasy Convention Schedule  • 
    Tomorrow morning, I get on a plane and head for upstate New York for the World Fantasy Convention 2007. It will be my first World Fantasy ever, if you don’t count the one where the World has me tied up to a four-poster bed and we’re having a menage a trois with the Moon. I […]
  9. The New Cover for “Infoquake”  • 
    As I mentioned the other day when I unveiled the final cover for "MultiReal," the great Stephan Martiniere is also doing the cover for Solaris' mass market paperback release of "Infoquake." Well, wait no longer. Here's the final version of the new cover.
  10. Capclave 2007 Wrap-up  • 
    I’m of two minds about my experience at this year’s Capclave in Rockville, MD. From a promotional standpoint, it might seem like the weekend was a disaster. My reading was slotted Saturday at 11:30 pm, and therefore rather sparsely attended. My book wasn’t available in the dealer’s room, as far as I could tell. And […]
