Clarkesworld Year 3, One Small Step and Locus Reading List: Updatery

A few cool things happened while I was in the writing oubliette this past month:

clarkesworld-year-three-600Coolness the First: Clarkesworld: Year Three — the anthology of all the works published in Clarkesworld, 2009 — has come out and is available in TPB from Amazon and in e-book format from Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Weightless Books, Wizard’s Tower and direct from Wyrm Publishing. I started writing in 2008, so ‘On the Lot and In the Air’ was my first Big Exciting Sale — but I’ve got to say I’m just as stoked to see it appear in this book now, with so many incredible authors.

OneSmallStepCoverdraft (2)Coolness the Second:

FableCroft gave us all a preview of the cover image for One Small Step, the anthology in which ‘By Blood and Incantation’ (co-written with Angela Slatter) will soon appear. A book launch is scheduled at Conflux in Canberra, Friday April 26, 2013 — hope to see some of you there!

And Coolness the Third:

Midnight and Moonshine appeared on the 2012 Locus Recommended Reading List — AND, it was reviewed by Faren Miller in the February issue of Locus. SO COOL. Miller has lots of awesome things to say about our book, including: “Another kind of combination gives this book its unique tone: however grand the fantasy, passionate the romance, or regally exotic these Fae, their stories inevitably take on some of the gritty frankness, spilled blood, and shit of ordinary human life. After enough of these random encounters, even the most arrogant deity can’t help but change.”
