Shawn operates The Signed Page, a wonderful site for bibiliophiles who long to possess autographed first editions. I’ve blogged here before about the beautiful Subterranean Press edition of The Inheritance, with interior art by Tom Kidd. In an extremely generous gesture, […]

Happy New Year!

A little less than ten hours to go here. Think I’ll wander out to First Night in Tacoma, and check out the world’s shortest parade.   I’m so glad that my city decided to continue this tradition.  Giant puppets, music, free admittance to the city’s museums . . . I love it! I wish all of […]

Opportunity For Collectors!

Steven Brust and I co-wrote an urban fantasy called The Gypsy back in 1992. We had a lot of fun writing it together, in fact, I’d say it was one of the most enjoyable writing experiences of my life.  The book incorporated snatches of song lyrics that Steve had co-written with Adam Stemple, then part […]

Off to Belgium with Robin Hobb

Packing is done.  And repacking and triple checking of suitcase is done, too, not that I have a trace of obsessiveness or anything. Tomorrow I fly across the US, change planes on the run, and fly on to Belgium.  I’ve come to hate flying.  Not just the security checks, or the cramped seats but worst […]

Farewell SupaNova

So sorry to see it end!  Had an absolutely wonderful time on Sunday. The panel was well attended, and I met a lot of readers. I think the high point of my day was a conga line of costumed participants that just seemed to spontaneously form and dance through the convention hall.  Spectacular! Tomorrow, I’ll […]
