Wow. I didn’t even have a reason to start up this list until mid-June, and I’ve been reading a lot of stuff. Most of the magazines I’ve read have been of the entertainment or self-help variety; no great articles in any of them. The books, well, the books were a disaster until June 15 or so. I read about a writer who had published a […]
I’m a political junkie. I read everything on politics I can get my hands on—and no, I will not allow political discussions on my blog. This is a politics-free zone. So if you put your political viewpoints in the comments, I will not approve that post. I start this way, because this blog post comes from one of the Washington Post’s political bloggers.

The Business Rusch: Bookstore Observations Kristine Kathryn Rusch I live in a town that has no completely new bookstore. We have two marvelous bookstores that feature new and used. One specializes in mysteries, and the other gets as much of everything as it can. But it only has a tiny storefront, and so “everything” is geared toward Times bestsellers and books on Oregon. So it’s […]
Once per month, I’ll publish an excerpt of one of my novels, and I hope you’ll be intrigued enough to buy the rest of the book. I began this practice in February. Unlike the free fiction I put up every Monday, the novel excerpts will remain on the site. If you want to read the opening to the previous three novels, click here. This month, I’ve […]
The Business Rusch: The Nook Inspiration Kristine Kathryn Rusch I had planned to write this week’s blog on the trip to Los Angeles. (See why I’m not in Los Angeles here.) Instead, I’m sitting in my office, fending off a very needy cat who couldn’t even handle the 36 hours we were gone. I shudder to think what she would have done if we had […]
I read a lot in December. Sadly, much of it wasn’t memorable. I checked my calendar (where I record what I read) to see if I had missed anything for the list—and was startled to see books that I barely remembered reading one week later. I’m also doing some very dishy research, so I’m reading a lot of salacious downmarket books from the 1950s, 60s […]
The Mad Hatter’s Bookshelf and Book Review has just posted an interview with me covering various topics: writing, editing, Diving Into The Wreck, hats, and much more! Go play on the website. It’s a fun one. You can find it here.
Joseph Mallozzi, one of the producers of Stargate and a well-read sf afficionado, has a book club every month. He announced this week that he’s picked Diving into the Wreck for his January book. So he’s encouraging people to buy the book now and send questions. Here’s the link to his announcement. And if you’re a fan of Stargate: Universe like I am (I just […]
