Science fiction just suffered two great blows last week, losing two influential writers and wonderful people, Frederik Pohl and A.C. Crispin.  I knew them both well and admired their work.

Frank Herbert’s SOUL CATCHER back in print

I fell in love with Frank Herbert’s writing back when I first read DUNE at age 12, and I have been pleased for years to be working with Brian Herbert and the Herbert estate to keep Frank’s works and his memory alive. Our work in continuing the DUNE saga is the most obvious success, but at my small publishing house WordFire Press, we are continuing to bring back ALL of Frank’s other classic works, including several novels that have never before been published.

DragonCon and Salt Lake City Comic Con

It’s an annual pilgrimage to DragonCon in Atlanta.  Rebecca and I counted, and we think this is our 18th one—and it certainly won’t be our last.  Of all the cons we go to, year after year, DragonCon never disappoints. It is vibrant, crowded, and full of joyful fans. You can tell that everybody loves to be there, and we always look forward to seeing the 75,000-person family.

Anderson, Eric Flint, Rebecca Moesta, James Artimus Owen, Tracy Hickman, Joan Johnston,  Jim Minz (Baen Books), Mark Leslie Lefebvre (Kobo), and attorney M. Scott Boone.

A Vertical Horizon concert and a mountain summit

Being a writer, I don’t often have “typical” days.  And that’s been typical lately.

The Deadline Death March

Anyone who knows my work or reads this blog is familiar with how much I write.  I work on several novel projects at once (and maybe a short story or two), at various stages of completion.  This summer, though, thanks to prior commitments and moving publication schedules, I found myself in a collision course of deadlines. MENTATS OF DINE, THE DARK BETWEEN THE STARS, and THE DRAGON BUSINESS all came due at about the same time.

Climbing Mt Bierstadt, 14,060 ft—the “non-solitude” Fourteener

After finishing and delivering three novels in two months, I was going stir crazy.  I wanted to get out, go hiking, get exercise, challenge myself. I’ve already climbed every one of the Fourteeners (54 peaks in Colorado over 14,000 ft in elevation). In sixteen years of living in Colorado I’ve climbed at least one 14er every summer (and sometimes snowshoed them in the winter), so I wanted to keep the record rolling.
