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 […]

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 […]

Pulse Pounders (And More)

Today marks the release of an amazing Fiction River volume, Pulse Pounders, edited by Kevin J. Anderson. In addition to his own bestselling novels, Kevin also collaborates with Brian Herbert on the New York Times bestselling Dune series. If Kevin hadn’t done all of that, his career as an editor would have made his name in the field. Three anthologies he edited became the bestselling science fiction anthologies of […]

Business Musings: The Popcorn Kitten Problem

This year, I hurt my writing career by working on my writing career. Okay, that’s not entirely true, but it feels true, which for writers is often the same thing. Here’s what I did: I had to finish the massive Retrieval Artist project. I was writing a huge story arc, something that ultimately became 8 books. I’d published the first book in 2011, the next […]
