The Consultations of Sherlock Holmes – Published

Outside of my usual genre preoccupations (but aligned with The Detective and the Clergyman which I mentioned recently), I’m delighted to announce that The Consultations of Sherlock Holmes is available for purchase.

This is an antho of stories in which Holmes is consulted by other crime-solvers instead of being the man responsible for the mystery. In my tale, “In the Style of the Monster”, he works from home and guides the Edinburgh police.

Interviewed by Discovered Wordsmiths

If you’ve ever wondered about my writing process, the genres I enjoy writing in or my latest books, but HATE reading author interviews, I have good news: I was interviewed on the Discovered Wordsmiths Podcast.

So you can get all the above PLUS you can see what I sound like, what I look like, and which corner of my living room I use as the backdrop when doing this kind of thing.

It’s a stalker’s paradise!

Also good for normal, non-weird people, too, but I hope there aren’t any of those on my friends list!

In Which I Am Interviewed

The wonderful Steven R Southard has just published an to an interview with me (focused mainly on my writing career) on his site. It’s quite interesting and involved, and I had a ton of fun answering the questions.

I’ve included the link here. So if anyone is curious about my process or even just my writing life, this is a nice place to start.

Thin Air Available for Pre-Order

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 will be in a Baen Anthology with Larry Niven and Arthur C. Clarke
