10 Best? pleased to see that the College Gazette recently picked my uni - University of Nevada, Reno - as one of the nation's 10 best hidden gem universities. No surprise to me, but it's nice to get that recognition, especially as we're at #3.

Write With Me in Brazil Next Summer!

So here's my first announcement of a very cool thing! I'm going to be teaching a fiction writing course this summer in Brazil! At the seaside city of Florianópolis. We'll be reading Brazilian writers (in English), but writing whatever fiction students want to - including SFF if they're so inclined. This is an undergrad college deal, for credit. USAC is based at the University of Nevada, Reno, but enrollment in this program is available to college students anywhere in the country.

Please spread the word! Five weeks of hanging out in a lovely city, writing, reading, eating, drinking, and - if you're up for it - surfing! (Yes, they offer surfing for credit!)

It's going be a blast! Questions about it? Email me at

Jean Cocteau Cinema's Signed Books

GRRM just reminded me that he has signed books - by many authors but me included - at his Jean Cocteau Cinema. They have copies of my Spartacus novel The Risen as well as three of the Wild Cards books I've contributed to. All of those have also been signed by George and any other authors who've visited the Cinema (and signed books they wrote or contributed to, I mean). There's a lot to choose from across many genres. Go check it out. Signed books make great presents!

Die Gladiatoren Von

This showed up in the mail today, sent from GRRM. I wasn't sure what it was, but I could tell it was in German.

Oh, I see. It's LOWBALL, a Wild Cards novel that I wrote for. Don't know that I knew this would be published in Germany, but... yay!
