Quick check in to let you know that Chapter Three of The Collapsing Empire is now up and readable on Tor(dot)com. It's the last preview chapter we're putting up. Hopefully, if you've read the preview chapters, you're now inspired to check out the full book on March 21. (And by "check out" I mean "buy." Hey, I got a kid going off to college.)

Subterranean Press has joined forces with Humble Bundle to create an eBook charity bundle for the benefit of Worldbuilders, and the bundle includes one of my books ("Miniatures," specifically). Go check it out and support a great charity (and publisher).

Chapter Two of The Collapsing Empire is now up on Tor(dot)com, and in it you'll be introduced to Kiva Lagos, who is one of my favorite characters ever. She swears like hell, so be ready for that. I can't wait for you to meet her.

I'm always telling people not to put too much stock in Amazon author rankings, because the mechanisms behind the numbers are pretty opaque and capricious (and Amazon, despite what it would have you think, is not the entire bookselling world).

That said, I'm still going to enjoy this particular number for the brief time I have it.

On the subject of the Audie Awards, my novella The Dispatcher is a finalist in two(!) categories: Science Fiction and Original Work (that is, work originally published in audio form). I'm thrilled and honored and want to give a special shoutout to Zachary Quinto, who narrated the work and really made it shine. This is a good day! Congratulations also to the other finalists, authors and narrators both. I'm in good company in both categories.

It's my honor to reveal to you which works, authors and narrators are finalists for the 2017 Audie Award in the category of Fantasy. The Audies are the highest award in the audio book industry, so being a finalist for one of its categories is a very fine honor indeed. Congrats to each of them! The winner will be announced June 1.
