Recommended Reading List: May, 2015

I started the major reading for the women in science fiction project I’m editing for Baen Books this month. Most of what I’m reading is stuff I should have read in the past. I’m also rereading stories that I remember from twenty years ago. Some hold up. Others don’t.

I’m stunned at what I’m finding and what’s been lost. I find it overwhelming at times. But it’s such a worthwhile project and so much fun. Some of the material here duplicates what’s on the site, because I’m enjoying what I’m reading so much.

The End of the Saga

Eighteen months ago, I thought the Anniversary Day Saga would never end. I wrote a part of it, finished that, then wrote another part, reassembled the entire story, and wrote yet another part. Eventually I figured out how all the pieces went together. But for someone like me, someone who jumps from project to project, this particular series proved challenging. It took all of my […]

Land On Starbase Human!

The seventh—seventh!—book of the Anniversary Day Saga hits the stands today. I have to admit, I had the most fun writing Starbase Human. It has a lot in common with the Diving books, even though this novel is in the Retrieval Artist Universe. Starbases, explosions, murders, and threats of war fill this volume. (Yes, I said “war.”) I’ve said over and over again that this story […]

And Now Things Get Rough

Here we go. Vigilantes, which is the sixth book in the Anniversary Day Saga, appeared today. And with it, we begin what I call when I’m writing a book (or a story or a long story like this one), “the slide to the end.” Yep, things are changing, and the story you thought you were reading might not be the story you were reading at all. Cue […]

Miles Flint Returns!

I know so many of you were waiting for Miles Flint to return to the Anniversary Day Saga. Wait no longer. He’s back in The Peyti Crisis, which released today. You can get it in audio, ebook, and trade paper. This is book five of eight in the saga, so we’re on the downhill slide. I hope you enjoy reading this one as much as I […]

A New Retrieval Artist Novella and A New Preorder!

It’s been a Retrieval Artist sort of week. First, the release of Search & Recovery, and now, the preorder for Starbase Human has just become available for the ebook on iTunes, Amazon, and Kobo. You can also preorder the audio book. I’m afraid the rest of you who have other devices or want the trade paper will have to wait until May. But to tide you over, Asimov’s […]

Search & Recovery Day!

I’ve been so busy the past few days that I didn’t have a chance to prepare this post ahead of time. I figured I could do it this morning. Ooops! My bad. It’s 10 pm Pacific Time and I’m just getting to it. Here’s the news: Search & Recovery, the fourth book in the Anniversary Day Saga, released today in all formats from trade paper to […]
