In 2006 I published the novella Under the Graying Sea in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. It received some pretty good reviews, was a runner up for the 2007 Hugo, and #4 on Asimov's novelette poll.

I'm now working on putting about a dozen of my best stories, including Graying Sea into a Kindle collection.

Keep tuned. I'll have word on it soon!

  • Under the Graying Sea in XB-1 in the Czech Republic About a year ago I gave permission for "Under the Graying Sea" to be translated into Czech and published in a magazine in the Czech Republic called XB-1. Then I forgot about it. Today I was looking through my Google+ feed and found that the magazine just printed "Sea" a couple of weeks ago. Now I have to ask my Polish wife to read it to me.

  • Nebula VII arrives, and looks sweet My copies of Nebula VII have arrived, and it's a really terrific-looking book.

He's done a lot of other wonderful illustrations, so take a look at his web site. And there's a scary mug shot of me in there, too.

  • Tessa in the flesh - sort of literally "Nebula VII," the anthology printed by the Chinese publication Science Fiction World, has just come out, and with it was a surprise. First, I didn't realize that the other authors were Robert Sawyer, Stephen Baxter, and James Alan Gardner. I'm quite humbled to be in the same stack of pages with these writers.Second, there was a black-and-white illustration done for the story that is quite nice. Okay, Tessa is a bit more, um, nekkid than I envisioned her in the story, but still - cool image.I haven't received my copies yet, but I'll post the cover when I do.Update: The artist's name is Den, and he has a web page full ...

  • "Under the Graying Sea" in SFW in China I'm very excited to say that Under the Graying Sea has been picked up by Science Fiction World, the largest science fiction magazine in the world. It's a Chinese publication with an estimated 1 million readers. I was asked by the editor to write an introduction about the writing of the story, so that and the full text of Sea will be translated and printed in Volume 7 of SFW's Nebula Series alongside stories by Robert Sawyer, Stephen Baxter, and James Alan Gardner.As I understand it, the book should be printed in January, so as soon as I get my copies, I'll post the cover here.
