Basically, I will no longer be reviewing books for DNA Publications, which means my YA review column and my short fiction columns will not be appearing in Chronicle anymore. If anyone noticed the absence of said columns in the past few months, that's why. The story is long and not pretty, but boils down to a profound difference in opinions between Warren Lapine and myself. So I moved on. End of that.
The good news is that beginning very soon, I'll be hosting the all-new Schrodinger's Bookshelf at SFSite.com. They've graciously allowed me the chance to revamp both of my columns into one easy-to-find blog. Now you will be able to find short fiction -and- young adult SF/Fantasy. And short YA SF/Fantasy for the ultimate in theme crossovers. :> Yeah, I'm excited. I've seen what the page will look like, and it looks -good-.
But wait, there's more! I'll also be contributing a YA SF/Fantasy "sidebar" for Realms of Fantasy, where I'll give a brief rundown of an assortment of appropriate material. I'm like a hydra: cut off one head, and two cats will appear to steal your dinner. Or something. Again with the happiness. The sidebar should start with the next issue.
Finally, got the page proofs for "Claus of Death". Yay, it's a real story and everything. I can't stop petting the pages and going into Gollum mode. "Precccccious."
The year is starting off nicely.
