That Was The Week That Was...

In which I finished a short story, wrote a very rough draft of another that I’m not going to call 'Big Space Robot', wrote an introduction to Alastair Reynolds’s short story collection, went to the Clarke Awards and cheered Geoff Ryman’s win for his very fine novel, Air, indulged in silliness with booksellers courtesy of one of my publishers and received two advance copies of the handsome paperback of Mind’s Eye from the other. Oh, and signed a contract for a Dutch edition of Mind’s Eye, and for a three book deal...

Not that I’m asking for indulgence for not having added anything here in the past few days, you understand.

Oh, please please please call it "Big Space Robot"! That's as good as Snakes on a Plane...

Welcome to the blogosphere, by the by. I really liked your post on the lack of a publicity angle....

(This might be the week that I finish the last story in LITTLE MACHINES.)

Hi Gabe,

Hey, thanks, but nothing is as good as Snakes on a Plane right now.

/ears perk up/ An Alastair Reynolds short story collection?

And, another welcome. From "Four Hundred Billion Stars" on, I've enjoyed your stuff!
