Fran Wilde’s Cooking the Books Roundtable is now up at Strange Horizons. Along with yours truly there’s Elizabeth Bear, Scott Lynch, and Nalo Hopkinson. Now that you’ve made it through Thanksgiving, we can’t hurt you with food talk anyway. Right?
Nothing quite like stumbling upon a new and unexpected review of one’s long-retired (and rarely seen) novel. The Pure Cold Light: Avon published it way back then, did all they could to murder it, and succeeded fairly well (except for the Nebula nominations that slipped through anyway). I do really need to get an ebook version of this baby out for Kindle and Nook.
