A New Diving Novella!

Asimov’s Science Fiction just published “The Rescue of The Renegat,” a new novella in the Diving Universe. The novella’s only been out for a few days, but I’ve already gotten a lot of comments from readers.

I forget to do basic things, like letting you know about all the various projects of mine that have appeared. I’ve finally put Promo!!! on my daily calendar, with a specific assignment to see if that’ll work. It’s working tonight. I finished my pages on […]

Free Fiction Monday: Becalmed, Part Two

Mae, chief linguist on the Ivoire, heads a diplomatic mission to Ukhanda. Her handling of relations with the Quurzod lead to a battle that causes the Ivoire’s anacapa drive to malfunction, stranding the ship in foldspace. Mae can’t remember what she did wrong on the mission: all she knows is that she’s one of the few survivors. If she doesn’t recall it, she won’t be able to prevent another disaster when the Ivoire escapes foldspace. If the Ivoire escapes foldspace. Because what no one talks about—and everyone fears—is that the Ivoire is becalmed…forever.

So in no particular order, let me share the recent publications.   The latest Uncollected Anthology, Mystical Melodies,  hit the virtual stands last month. My new […]

Free Fiction Monday: SeniorSource

For seniors who need a comfortable place to live, SeniorSource fits the bill. Zero-g, medical care, even a work exchange program for those who can’t afford it otherwise.

For one former NYPD detective, SeniorSource provides a lifeline. But if he fails to solve his latest case—the murder of a young boy on the Moon—in 24 hours, he might find himself downgraded, or worse, back on Earth. In other words, dead.

“SeniorSource,” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch is free on this website for one week only.
