The Tower

Tower 3_10asimovs

The March Asimov’s features a story of mine that’s been in the works for about 8 years. I couldn’t write it until I found a few great books on the history of the Tower of London.  Believe it or not, it took a while to find those books.  Even the information online wasn’t as detailed as I wanted.  Eventually I found all that I needed, however, and wrote “The Tower.”  You can find an excerpt here–and if you want, you can order the issue, as either a print copy or a download.  Enjoy!

    I’m happy to have one of my poems appear again in an issue of Asimov’s with one your pieces. The first time was September 2006, which also had a space-uniformed female on its cover. Now, I know that more copies will be preserved for posterity, especially by your fans.

    I picked this issue up the other day and wanted to let you know that your story was a fantastic end to a fantastic issue of Asimov’s. It was my first experience with your writing and I was impressed…impressed enough to rush out and buy Diving into the Wreck, which I have just finished. Wonderful!

    I look forward to seeking out more of your work and enjoying it in the future.

  3. Kris, I just picked up this issue last week, and was please (but not surprised) to see your name on it. I was also very impressed with the cover, and thought you might be interested in this youtube from the artist:

    Makes me really, really wish I’d stuck with my visual arts studies, back when I was a teen. Once upon a time I remember wanting to be able to paint like this.
