Mentioned in an Interview

About a week ago, I realized that I was mentioned in an interview with Mark Bould on Big Echo (a critical SF site). A lot of the interview was focused on politics, but it was nice to be named as one of the exponents of the current wave of Latin American SF – nice that someone noticed, LOL. Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.14.17 PM

I’m a Finalist for the Jim Baen Memorial Award

I’ve known for a few days that I’m one of the ten finalists for the 2018 Jim Baen Memorial Award, but had been asked to keep quiet about it until today.

But now it can be told and I’m delighted to announce that… well, what I said above!  The three winners will be posted at some point in March.

As you can imagine, I’m beyond excited, having grown up reading Baen science fiction as a kid.

Anyhow, the best of luck to the other nine finalists (at least one of whom is a friend, maybe more; I haven’t seen the complete list yet).

Brand New Story… Sold

The nice news I got last week was that the first story I wrote in 2018, after finishing the novel, has been accepted by the editor that requested it (it’s going to a truly interesting antho project). I’ll give more details once contracts are signed and final edits done, but I’m delighted!

Summerland Sells!

My story “Summerland” has sold to the fourth volume of the Worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror antho series. This makes me extremely happy because I now have a story in each volume! Here’s a link to Volume 3 while we wait for V4 to arrive late this year!
