A Galaxy Full of Adventure SF

Science Fiction is the literature that always set my imagination on fire, sparking my sense of wonder, taking me on adventures into the future, off to the most distant parts of the universe, to alien cultures, and the frontiers of the human mind.

I’m curating a new Adventure SF bundle for storybundle.com that contains fourteen great books guaranteed to set your imagination on fire, and it launches today, June 22—for only a little more than a dollar a book.

A Clockwork Climb for RUSH Fans—Mt. Evans

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming response, our climbing group is at capacity. If you want to be placed on a waiting list, please email reed (at) via (dot) com.

In August 2010, on a day between two Rush concerts at Red Rocks Theater near Denver, Neil Peart and I climbed a mountain—Mount Evans, 14,265 ft, and on that climb we plotted the story and characters of CLOCKWORK ANGELS (a hike described in detail in Neil’s afterword to the novel).  Now, some Rush fans want to re-create that climb this summer, and I have agreed to lead them.

A StoryBundle of Holiday Joy!

As I write this blog, Colorado has been hit with the first big snowstorm of the season, 8-12 inches overnight. School is closed for a snow day, and my snowplow guy just called to say that he can’t even get up our road to plow the driveway.

So, we’ll sit inside all nice and cozy with a fire. A perfect time to read.

Holidays are full of magic, good cheer, mystery, and wonderful fantasies. This time of year—from Thanksgiving through Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, New Years—is packed with possibilities, and great fodder for writers to tell some of their best stories.

Making a BLOCKBUSTER

When I was learning to become a writer, then a published writer, then a novelist, I read a lot of writing books, looking for the key, trying to figure out the next step. Since there were writers ahead of me on the curve, better than me, I knew I had to catch up.
