Yes, WonderCon was full of wonder!

What a con! First off, how can a con weekend not go well when it starts with a visit to Disneyland? Our hotel was literally across the street from the theme park in Anaheim, CA, and Rebecca and I enjoyed a little “stroll,” getting back in touch with our inner children (yes, they’re still there).

First Hugo Award Nomination

Politics aside, please.

I am very pleased to announce that the first book in my Saga of Shadows space opera epic, The Dark Between the Stars (Tor Books, June 2014) is a finalist for the 2015 Hugo Award to be presented at Sasquan, the World Science Fiction Convention.  Over the course of my career I’ve published over 120 books and I’ve won or been nominated for the Nebula Award, Bram Stoker Award, Shamus Award, and others, but never the Hugo Award.

TRAVELING IN TIME—ALL IN A BUNDLE

Everybody loves time travel stories. As a little kid I remember my parents taking me to the movie theater to see THE TIME MACHINE, starring Rod Taylor, based on the HG Wells novel. It was fascinating to watch the machine spin forward in time as the sun and moon whirled over head.

Remembering Louis Moesta

Yesterday we laid Rebecca’s father Louis Moesta to rest in Ft Logan National Cemetery in Denver.  He was 89 years old and I was honored to know him for 25 of those years. He was my father-in-law, but I never had any problem at all calling him “Dad.”  You will see his name in the acknowledgments page of many of my books, and on the dedication page of several.

A Frog Kiss for a Belated Valentine

When we were first dating, Rebecca diligently read most of my stories. After she’d finished quite a few, she gave me a near-impossible challenge: “I want you to write a story that has a happy ending.”  So I did.  This was her Valentine’s Day present—which we’ve just put up in a new e-story edition. 

A humorous fantasy tale. An evil wizard has turned the entire royal family into frogs and set them loose in the marshes, and only a kiss can restore them to their natural forms . . . but there are so many frogs, and so much swamp, who is willing to kiss them all?

On the Road Again: 2015 Appearance Schedule

Considering all of the trails that I have walked, sometimes it’s easy to forget how important to tell people where you are going.

That holds true for all the conventions and workshops I’m going to this year—places where you can track me down, talk with me, get a book signed.  I will be on the road a lot all year, all over the country…even to Australia and Puerto Rico.

The Miracle of the Purple Unicorn

Unicorns are magic, so how can a book about them not be magic in its own way? And if the unicorns are purple, it has to be even more special. This will show the wonderful possibilities that are now available to writers and publishers.

This is a story about a joke comment, then a crazy idea, then a group of people who wanted to make that idea happen—and teamwork, the full support of a group of dedicated writers, an editor, an artist, and a publisher.

And a little magic.

And a scholarship.
