Good News, Everybody!

Full details will follow later, but I wanted to share some good news. First, CLAUDIUS REX news: The Table of Contents for this summer’s 2015 Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novellas, from Prime Books has been announced, and this late in the sentence you’ve probably figured out that REX is going to be in […]

Through Other Eyes

One of the real joys of writing is getting to see your work interpreted by other people. Cover illustrations are always wonderful — getting to see how a talented artist viewed your characters and world is a real treat.
