This weekend I'll be attending my first Albacon -- a science fiction convention in Albany, New York -- which people tell me is small but a lot of fun. It will also see the launch of "Fantasy for the Throne" which includes my story "Witch v. Hansel, Gretel, et. al." Her...

I received word this week that my third novel, “Father of the Bride of Frankenstein,” has been accepted by Fantastic Books. As I just received the manuscript back for revisions I don’t have a publication date yet, but it’s likely to be either late this year or early ne...

I’m in the process of moving. I hate it. I’m looking forward to having moved into my new place, but the process makes me tired and irritable.

People tell me this is a good time to go through stuff and throw away things that have piled up over the last eight years here,...

Next weekend (Jan. 12-15) is Arisia, the annual Boston area science fiction convention. I'll be there doing panels, a reading, autographing, and just hanging out. If you're there, please say hello. And if you're interested, here's my schedule:
