Aside from the odd photo and the weekly links page, I'll be blogging very infrequently for the next four weeks. I want to get a good portion of the second draft of the new novel done (and wouldn't mind finishing a short story, too), I have a business problem to resolve, and I need a holiday. (Yes, I was just in Spain as a guest of the very good, hugely relaxed Celsius 232 festival
, and had a terrific time in great company, but I'm planning a few days away that have nothing at all to do with the writing biz.)
Meanwhile, there are reviews of Evening's Empires here
, and there's a Q&A conducted by my publishers about my first 25 years as a novelist over here
. And at some point I'll post links to a book give-away . . .
 Oh yes, and I've reviewed Charles Stross's Neptune's Brood
for The Los Angeles Review of Books
