Giant Land of Pulp

Now that Jeff Ford's "Giant Land" is getting the recognition it so richly deserves, I would like to take this opportunity to point out that the second issue of Journal of Pulse-Pounding Narratives contains--in addition to "Giant Land"--fine fiction from Scott Edelman, Lori Selke, Gavin J. Grant, James L. Cambias, Peter Hagelslag, Davin Ireland, Jetse de Vries, Jay Lake, Paul Finch, and Tim Pratt.

There aren't a million left, so get 'em while you can.

A Couple More Upcoming Stories

"This Thing of Darkness I Acknowledge Mine," in Pete Crowther's anthology Forbidden Planets, due out from DAW this summer.

"Wizard's Six," forthcoming in F&SF.

2006 So Far, and Looking Ahead

Two stories already out in the world: "Shambhala," in the March F&SF and "Homosexuals Damned, Film at Eleven" in the Lou Anders-edited anthology FutureShocks.

This summer, Night Shade Books will publish a collection of my short stories, called Pictures from an Expedition. There will be a new story in the book, as well as a dozen reprints from the past two years or so. Also I'll have a story, "New Game in Town," in the Joe Lansdale-edited anthology Retro Pulp Stories, from Subterranean.

Looking a little farther ahead, I just finished revisions on Batman: Inferno, a novel about Batman's early career. Look for it in December from Del Rey.

And before that, the Francophones among you can check out the French edition of A Scattering of Jades, currently scheduled for October from Fleuve Noir.

I Give Up

So I fought with this other blogging software for a while, and then it was just too easy to come over here. What's not to love?
