Cool news for today is that my collection This Air is available fro Pre-order on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This is a collection I think a lot of you will enjoy. As the subtitle says, it mixes SF/F and crime, and I had a
wonderful time revisiting the stories to write the introductions to them.
Of course, I’ll let the readers be the judge of the stories, but I personally think some of my best are in here. If anyone buys it, I’d love to know if you agree (or not!)!
I’ve been sitting on some big news for a while. I’ve sold a story to Baen Books’ new anthology Real Stories of the United States Space Force. This is extremely exciting for many reasons (Baen!!!), but most exciting of all are the wonderful authors I’ll be sharing the ToC with.
Have a look:
Arthur C. Clarke
C. Stuart Hardwick
Greg & James Benford
Jody Lynn Nye

There’s an interview with me up at the Kickstarter for The Consultations of Sherlock Holmes. I’ve included the link here in case you’re curious about how this story came to be, and the process of writing it. Scroll down to see the interview!
My effort to stay abreast of all the publications I’ve had over the past year (and which I forgot to talk about) continues apace. Today’s belated announcement is of the Sherlock Holmes A Year of Mystery 1883 Anthology. Purchase link here.
Cool news for today is that the Dragon’s Gems Anthology has been published (well, a couple of months ago, but I’ve already admitted that I’m way behind, right?). This one contains my story “Keep Them Smiling” about the way policing might be done in the future. I find it chilling not because of the brutality, but because it explores the non-brutal options to their logical conclusions… and finds them even worse.
Still Catching up on publications I’d missed. For those of you who have yet to read this one, my story Christopher’s retreat has been published on Timber Wolf’s site. Link here – this is a very short one, and an incursion into weird fiction. Like so much weird fiction, I have no clue where the idea came from. What was I thinking?
