Collaborative Story Sale

I'm very excited to have sold my third blind collaboration, this time to Kaleidotrope magazine. This time my co-authors are Stewart C Baker, Anatoly Belilovsky, Robert Dawson, Kate Heartfield, Holly Heisey, CL Holland, Laurie Tom and Deborah Walker - the most I've ever collaborated with.

Once again the story is set on Astropolis, a two hundred year old orbital habitat that has been the setting for several of my stories.

Book Review: The Cusanus Game by Wolfgang Jeschke

This month I have a novelette being published in German, my second story in German and my longest translated story to date. This piqued my interest in German Science Fiction, so I took the opportunity to get hold of Wolfgang Jeschke’s award-winning 2005 novel Die Cusanus Spiel. My German isn’t good enough to read the novel so, in fact, I got the 2013 English version, The Cusanus Game, translated by Ross Benjamin.

Read the rest of my review at SF Crowsnest.

I'm really excited to see what this one will look like when it comes out.
