New story collection launched

I’ve launched a new ebook.

Mixed Bag: A Miscellany of Stories brings together eleven stories, from flash to novelette length.  As the title indicates, there’s considerable variety:  Dying Earth fantasy, space opera, contemporary fantasy, near-future dystopia.

Some of the stories bring back some of my favorite characters:  Henghis Hapthorn, Erm Kaslo, and Luff Imbry.  And one of them is my unabashed Wodehouse pastiche that saw Jeeves and Wooster (with names changed to protect the sueable) rocketing off to Venus.

All of the tales have been previously published in reputable venues, except for the Imbry novelette, which is pristine.

I’ll follow up with a paperback in the next little while.

Here’s a link.

Interview with Sci Fi Saturday Night podcast

I’ve done an interview with the Sci Fi Saturday Night podcast, talking about playing in Jack Vance’s sandbox to write Barbarians of the Beyond.

The opening is clips from ancient SF movies. I come on just before the two-minute mark.
