New versions of ebooks

Hardware malfunctions have kept me from updating here since late September, but now I’m back.  I have a number of things to post about but ‘ll do them one at a time over the next few days so as not to be constantly tugging on your sleeve.

My gifted book designer and webmaster, Bradley W. Schenck, has sent me new and improved versions of my self-published ebooks, Fools Errant, Fool Me Twice, Template, The Meaning of Luff, The Complete Guth Bandar, 9 Tales of Henghis Hapthorn, and Paroxysm.

If you’ve bought them on Amazon, the updated content will automatically come through.  If you haven’t bought them, now would be a good time.

Me at WorldCon (LonCon)

I haven’t got a lot of scheduled activities at WorldCon, although I may shamelessly crash a panel or two.  I did that at Melbourne’s WorldCon and it worked out well.

Officially, I’ve got two signings on Saturday:  an all-comers event from 11 to noon at the convention autographing area;  and one for PS Publishing at their table in the dealers room from 2 to 3 pm.

I’ll be spending some time in the convention hospitality room and in the bar.  Feel free to come and say hello.

I’m also going to bring some copies of my Endeavour Award-nominated collection, The Meaning of Luff and Other Stories, to give away.  They’re intended for winning new readers, but I’d probably give one to a devoted fan.

Hope to see you there.

Meaning of Luff shortlisted for the Endeavour

The Meaning of Luff and Other Stories, my self-published collection (seven short stories and two novellas) has been shortlisted for the Endeavour Award.  As always, the winner will be announced at Orycon in November.

The collection chronicles the operations and misadventures of Luff Imbry, corpulent art forger and master thief of Old Earth in the aeon before The Dying Earth.  The stories were originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and Postscripts.  The novellas were published in limited editions by PS Publishing.

The Endeavour is awarded annually for “a distinguished science fiction or fantasy book written by a Pacific Northwest (US and Canada) author or authors and published in the previous year.”

Four other works are on the shortlist:  “King of Swords” by Dave Duncan (47North);  “Nexus” by Ramez Naam (Angry Robot); “Protector” by C.J. Cherryh (DAW Books); and “Requiem” by Ken Scholes (Tor Books).

The Meaning of Luff can be purchased as an ebook ($3.99) or a POD paperback ($12.99) from the Archonate Bookstore.

I’m going to WorldCon

I’m going to attend WorldCon in London in August.  I’ll be happy to sign books, talk about interesting stuff, and join amiable folks for an hour or two in the bar.
