Book sale: one of the consequences of my treatment for cancer in 2014 was that I bought far more copies of American Craftsmen in hardcover than I was able to sell prior to the publication of the paperback. I’m unlikely to lug the AC hardcovers out to conventions. So, I’m now offering personal signed copies of those hardcovers and my other books on my website at prices which, including free media mail shipping, are below my costs. My new “Bookstore” page is here:
I’ll also soon be offering other goods of geek interest on my site and on eBay, so stay tuned.

If you've read The Left-Hand Way, please consider posting an honest review on Amazon--any review is helpful.

Monday night, I turned in the manuscript for my 3rd book, War and Craft. Just like Nigel Tufnel, I've completed a trilogy! I'm also now returning to full social media participation. My apologies for being such a bad online friend for the past 4 months, and missing many important life events. I'll try to catch up a bit.

My schedule for ConFusionSF in Novi, MI (Jan 22-24):
Friday 7PM. Author event at Barnes & Noble, Livonia. Local friends--I'll meet up at the cafe at 5:30 if you'd like.
Sat. 10AM. Whose Subgenre Is It, Anyway?
Sat. Noon: MacArthur to MacGuffin
Sat. 5PM: Autograph Session
Sun. 10AM: Singularity for the Rest of Us
Sun. 11AM: Fantasy Fantasy: Live Draft

Breaking media silence for Bowie, and reposting this from his birthday 2 years ago: Here's the reason I'll always think well of the man: back in the fall of 1980 I was on an NYC theater tour with some other Detroit burbs high schoolers. We saw Bowie's performance in The Elephant Man, which was a physical marvel. The next day, the lead actress (Patricia Elliott) spoke to our group, and it came out that one of our group had the Elephant Man's condition, which had to be treated with continual surgeries. The actress arranged for her to meet with Bowie (which was of course very kind of her as well). Now, as the actress had explained to us, Bowie was spending hours before and after each performance dealing with the exhausting physical demands of the part--massages, stretching, etc. Yet he took time to meet with this young woman from the Midwest, and I can see no other real motivation besides the kindness of all concerned. So talk all you like about the cold Thin White Duke--I'm not buying it.
