This is my 1,000 blog post! It's a short one, as I'm traveling.

I'm in France as one of the international guest of  the Imaginales book festival! Yay!

Very pleased to be back for a second time.

Here's the festival's site if you'd like to know more about it.

Writing About Race in Science Fiction and Fantasy

Just up at SF Signal, the beginning of a Roundtable Interview with Aliette de Bodard, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Ken Liu... and me! I can't vouch for myself, but I know the others said some insightful stuff.

Take a look HERE.

Wild Cards Goes British

Very pleased with an email that just came in from GRRM. Looks like the Wild Cards Series is going to get a major reboot in the UK! I knew that the first three books were going to get pubbed there, but the deal just got a bit larger. To quote George:

"We're doing something old and something new. Orion will be reissuing the first three books in the series, WILD CARDS, ACES HIGH, and JOKERS WILD. But they will also be doing five of our new books: INSIDE STRAIGHT, BUSTED FLUSH, SUICIDE KINGS, FORT FREAK, and LOWBALL."

Cool. That means two of my efforts in the series (Fort Freak and Lowball) will be hitting Waterstones. I'm pleased about that.

Reiche Ernte

I'm aware that I haven't posted anything since crash landing back in the States. That's partially because there's been so much to do, and partially because my internet access isn't what it used to be. Basically, I'm living in black out spot for the next couple of months. I can only get online by hopping in the car and going out to a local library, or the Montague Book Mill - which is where I am now.

Of course, stuff has been happening. Hopefully, I'll be able to announce some very interesting new developments soon. Before that, though, I'll just offer up a new cover! I just discovered it online. It's for the German edition of The Sacred Band, which is call Reiche Ernte (Rich Harvest?). The book itself isn't out until next March, but here's how it's going to look:

If I'm reading things correctly, that artist is Melanie Wanda Miklitza. Check out her sight for a look at the original artwork.

Whaddya think?
