When I do appearances and travel, sometimes I'm just a guest author. Sometimes I fit right in. The Rushcon folks are definitely my people. I was invited to be a guest at Rushcon 14 in Toronto, August 22-24, so I could talk about CLOCKWORK ANGELS the novel and the new comic series being released by BOOM! Studios. It's always good to have any excuse to go up to Toronto, and I gladly accepted the invitation. I flew out a day early to spend time with Mark Leslie LeFebvre from Kobo Writing Life, since my WordFire Press does so much direct work with Kobo. Of course it was business-related, but since Mark is also a big microbrew fan (and Rush fan, too) we spent the previous evening together hitting (crawling) the local pubs, and I even had my obligatory poutine at a pub—which was far superior to any other one I'd had previously. Mark Leslie LeFebvre, poutine, and beer: three essential items for a visit to Toronto After spending the night in Mark's guest bedroom, we headed out Friday morning to a meeting at the main offices of Wattpad, a vastly popular reading-sharing site, where we meet with the Wattpad people to talk about [...]

Announcing another storybundle, this one crammed with gritty, cyberpunk novels—including my first novel RESURRECTION, INC. (inspired by the Rush album “Grace Under Pressure”), and HIGH OPP, a previously unpublished Dystopian SF novel by Frank Herbert, author of Dune. The important details: Name your own price at storybundle.com, get seven complete novels in your preferred eBook format for as little as $3 (minimum bid); if you pay $15 or more, you get an additional six complete novels. Thirteen novels for fifteen bucks? And the offer is good WORLDWIDE. A quick visit to Wikipedia will confirm that “cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a near-future setting. Noted for its focus on “high tech and low life,” it features advanced science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.” But for me it's always been about the radical change in social order over the high tech. It's been about hackers, artificial intelligences, and megacorporations, and tend to be set in a near-future Earth that's absolutely dystopic, not some far-future setting in a galaxy far far away. What's important is the extraordinary cultural impact of the technology being twisted [...]
