I’ll keep this brief and to the point…well, as mch as I ever keep anything brief and to the point.
1) New reviews posted on Tor.com include Breaking Point, by Kristen Simmons, which is the sequel to Article 5, and Impulse, by Steven Gould, which is the latest in the Jumper series. I also “eDiscovered” the classic space opera, The Price of the Stars, by Debra Doyle and James D. MacDonald.
2) Just about all copies of Scheherazade’s Facade, both digital and physical, have been sent out to appropriately happy Kickstarter backers. I’m poking the office to make sure we didn’t have any stragglers. Just remember, if you didn’t back the anthology through Kickstarter, you can buy it through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Circlet, and other fine online retailers. If you read it and like it, reviews are greatly encouraged, on any of the above places, or Goodreads, or your personal blogs.
3) This one’s for all the SFWA members out there who are eligible to nominate for awards like the Nebulas. While all of the stories in Scheherazade’s Facade are worthy of recognition, David Sklar’s been trying extra hard to get his brilliant “Lady Marmalade” noticed. That story can be found in the SFWA forums as a standalone PDF. The forums are password protected, but if you’re SFWA, you should have no problem getting in. The deadline is today (how time flies!) but it’s worth 10 minutes of your time. Honest!
That’s it for the moment, although I’m sure I’m forgetting something…
