I still have some catching up to do from my trip—a few things to tell you about the travels and a few notes, in addition to a lot of business blogs and some writing blogs. I came home to the expected jetlag and the unexpected efficiency of my editors. I thought—before I left—that I’d have the rest of September off. But I’m going to be working hard.
Not that I’m complaining. As you all know, I love my job. I just didn’t quite expect to be this busy.
But before I go any farther, let me catch up on a few things.
First, you can get one of my “Diving” stories in the Oct/Nov Asimov’s. You’ll need to go to the store soonest because the December issue is about to appear. This story, “Becoming One With The Ghosts,” features a new character and a situation we haven’t seen before in the “Diving” universe. You can find an excerpt here along with information on how to order this electronically or in regular old-fashioned magazine format.
The second story, “Disaster Relief,” is a reprint, but I know many of you haven’t seen it. Besides, the anthology is one you need to buy. All of the profits from Breaking Waves will go to the victims of the current Gulf disaster—folks who are out of the news now, but filled it just a few months ago. So head to this link and order the anthology. You’ll find work by the wonderful Ursula K. Le Guin and Vonda McIntyre and other great writers. You can find more information here.
