Recommended Reading List: October 2013

I taught a week-long science fiction craft workshop in October, and read lots of excellent stories. I’ll mention them when they show up in print and you can find them. I’ll be amazed if editors don’t snatch these stories up. I know that Lee Allred took some for the second Fiction River special that he’s […]

The Business Rusch: Reality Check

 The beginning of November marks the start of the holiday season here in the United States.

The Business Rusch: Unintended Consequences

I am completely overwhelmed. Not because I just finished teaching a week-long workshop. Not because one of my novels decided to become triplets. Not because it’s about to become November.

Fiction River 3 Already!

Today’s the official release date for Fiction River: Time Streams, the third volume of the anthology series. Dean edited this one. It’s all time travel all the time (one of his favorite subgenres). Time Streams has some powerful stories in it, some written by first-timers, others written by old hands. Mike Resnick pairs up with Lou Berger […]

The Business Rusch: Markers

So Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post. The blogosphere is going crazy with opinions; the New York Times thinks the world has ended; and everyone has a comment. Except me. I’ve been dealing with other issues. Dean and I are traveling, and so we’re consuming news differently. A few hours after I finish this (I […]
