The Runabout Published!

That’s right! The latest adventure in my Diving Universe hit print (and ebook and audiobook) today. You can finally find out what Boss has been doing. If you recall, the novel first appeared in Asimov’s earlier in the summer. That introduced Boss & crew to a brand new audience, as exemplified by Eric Kimminau writing for Tangent Online: Engrossing. Detailed. Imaginative. I had never heard […]

Recommended Reading List: August, 2017

I read a lot in August. I’m line editing two Fiction Rivers, so I got to revisit some excellent stories. I’ll point them out when they get published. Right now, though, you should pick up the current Fiction River, Pulse Pounders: Adrenaline, edited by Kevin J. Anderson. I line edited that in the spring. Excellent unforgettable stories in there, especially those by Travis Heermann, Debbie […]

A Preorder, A Nifty Anthology, and Some Great Reading (Plus A Time-Limited Deal)

Okay, that’s a long title. But I couldn’t come up with anything pithy. As I type this, explosions shaking my house. Not because I’m in some kind of danger or because something bad has happened, but because I live in a tourist town. Here in the States, it’s our national holiday, the Fourth of July, which Americans have celebrated with fireworks since our founding. I […]

First and Last Chance Bundles

This summer looks like it’ll be the summer of bundle crossovers. Somehow, through the magic of Kris being calendar challenged in 2016, I’m in several bundles that will crossover with each other. The first crossover occurred this week. The Moonscapes bundle that I told you about two weeks ago ends on Wednesday. If you like science fiction as much as I do, pick up this […]

Romance, Pen Names, and a Reminder

If you’re a regular reader of my Recommended Reading List, you know that I love romance novels. It took me years to screw up my courage to write a romance novel, and then I stumbled into the genre somewhat accidentally. I wrote goofy paranormal romances as Kristine Grayson. I’ve also written a couple of romances that aren’t goofy or paranormal as Kristine Kathryn Rusch. While […]

The Moon in June

I’m particularly fond of June. I entered the world in June many decades ago, and as a result, I feel like it’s my month. I think I’d like the month even without the personal resonance: June contains the longest days of the year (in my hemisphere, at least) and, in the Pacific Northwest, is the beginning of our clearest, most rainfree season. Which means here […]

Diving News! News for Writers! News For Short Story Lovers!

Yes! News! (And more exclamation points than I probably needed, but still.) For some reason, all of my deadlines piled up in 2017. I spent the first four months in a weird, but efficient frenzy. The only thing that went by the wayside was keeping you all informed of new publications. This, of course, means that the news has piled up as well, and I’m […]

Recommended Reading List: January, 2017

I spent the first part of January line editing a Fiction River volume, watching disaster movies, and reading romance novels. I cannot explain any of this, except that I enjoyed all of it.

An Audio Year’s Best

I’m so thrilled to have a novella in The Year’s Top Short SF Novels, edited by Allan Kaster. This is a lovely audiobook rendition of “Inhuman Garbage.” The other novellas in here are amazing. If you commute, then this is an audio book for you. It’s available in ebook and paper formats as well. Take a listen; you’ll be glad you did. Here’s the Amazon […]
