A couple of quick items for those curious:
The Fandom Association of Central Texas (F.A.C.T.) has made the Rick Klaw-edited anthology Rayguns Over Texas available on Kindle. It is an outstanding anthology that includes stories by Jessica Reisman, Michael Moorcock, Joe R. Lansdale, Lawrence Person, Mark Finn, and yours truly, among many others.
So now you have no excuse to pick up an electronic copy.
In the Department of Upcoming Releases, I have criticism coming soon in print. "Adventure and Exoticism: The Beauties of Science Fiction Poster Art" is the foreward to Flame Tree Publishing's Science Fiction Movie Posters by Dave Golder, a beautiful book of science fiction poster art (hence the title) coming to bookstores this July. You can find information on this gorgeous art book here.
You, of course, need one.
Otherwise, I have reviews to write for SF Signal, a story in progress for the Madeline Ashby–edited anthology Licence Expired, a fantasy story to undertake, notes toward a space opera, a futuristic Cold War satire, an upcoming Watching the Future entry, and more...all in my neverending attempt to make good art.
