New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: My Dinosaur Launch Party (coming right up!) gets a big boost from a friend. Plus my first-ever book trailer! (Thanks, Brazil and DarkSide Books!)
It takes a lot to bump my getting my first-ever book trailer off the headline. But that was accomplished by the unexpected apparition of this little right here: Yes, that little baby (I wish I could make the images bigger, here) comes from a plug for the Worldwide Launch Party at the Jean Cocteau Cinema for The Dinosaur Lords By none other than George R. R. Martin his own bad self. Yeah. That’s one mor...

Brand new on my Sense of Adventure blog: A (Blue) Triceratops' Tale: the Life and Times of Ol' Horny!
You may not be aware, but I actually have an Official Logo. And it’s this: Look for the Blue Triceratops Head! A few months after I started writing The Dinosaur Lords on my birthday (August 3rd, for those keeping score at home) in 2003, my late friend Randy Clark suggested I needed a logo. I decided there could be but one choice: my favorite dinosaur, Triceratops horridus , in a fetching shade of blue.

New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: In which we venture overseas with Dinosaurs! And also Lords.
Before the Roger Zelazny Memorial at the Jean Cocteau Cinema last month, my agent Kay McCauley came up to me outside the theater, gave me a hug, and said,

New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: no matter how you try to stop it....
Or at least, it’s happening again. Not the Change , which happened March 17, 1998 at 6:15 PM PST (tl;dr: shit broke.) The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth , the senses-shattering anthology edited by Steve “S. M.” Stirling ! Which is set after – well, you know. Yes, we’re doing it again – as in signing it. At least some or all of the NM authors who contributed, which is about most of us.  And this time we’re doing it here...

New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: the social event of the season takes place one week from today at the Jean Cocteau Cinema!
According to the suave ticker on my home page installed by equally-suave Webmaster Supreme Ron Miles , as I write this there are less than twelve hours till the senses-shattering official launch of The Dinosaur Lords !   Nope. Cool! But nope. (Image credit: Dinosaur Cowboys ) But one week from today it’s my birthday – and an even more momentous occasion. It’s the Official Worldwide Launch Party at the ...

New on my Sense of Adventure blog: one week till THE DINOSAUR LORDS comes out! Plus more interior illos, guest blog post, and reviews.
Yes, The Dinosaur Lords launches one week from today! RAWR!!1! The postcards, visible at the top of the picture, arrived on my porch this morning from Tor Books , courtesy of my publicist, Leah Withers . The bookplate, lower left, and business card (front and rear view, lower right), came in last week. They’re done by my good friends Sara M. Harvey and Matt Schwartz at J & J Printers, Inc . Ain’t they purty?

Brand new and hot on my Sense of Adventure blog: inside the art inside THE DINOSAUR LORDS!

Plus win a free copy! (But hurry.)
  Surprise! A book called The Dinosaur Lords has dinosaurs in it. Who knew? Well, not so fast, Captain Obvious Straw Man ! There aren’t just dinosaurs made of words. There’s pictures. Pretty pictures. Awesome pictures. I could also have entitled the post, “Horror Is The Thing With Feathers.” Yes, to the wonderment and envy of my peers, The Dinosaur Lords has interior illustrations. And they're by the ...

New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: one month till the New Age of Dinosaurs begins!

Yes, kiddies - THE DINOSAUR LORDS drops July 28th, 2015!
The Dinosaur Lords gets released one month from today: July 28th, 2015! That’s not scary at all. Don’t worry, sweetie. He’s more afraid of you than you are of him. It’s exciting, sure. But … whoa! Lot of trepidation involved, I must admit. Tor continues to do well by me. On Twitter they just trotted out The Quote again – you know the one I mean. And speaking of The Quote, I believe I forgot to link it a couple mo...

New up on my Sense of Adventure blog: dinosaurs to see before I join them!
Not for dinosaurs. Except for birds, that ship sailed 66 million years ago. So Steve “S. M.” Stirling (that name will come up later, spoilers) and I have a mild and jocular debate going on: he claims we (in our early sixties) are doomed to be the last generation to die before human lifespans get vastly extended. I maintain that, with a little luck, if we can just hold on a few more years, we’ll slide in under the wire. In any event, ...

The Dinosaur Lords - coming January 2013 from Tor!
Introduction
I was born in Tulsa, lived the first year & a half of my life in Puerto Rico, and moved with my mother to Santa Fe, NM when I was seven. Shortly after we moved to Albuquerque, where with minor interruptions I've stayed happily since.

While I've been a cowboy, a rock radio DJ, & a bouncer, I've spent almost my whole adult life as a professional writer. Mostly I do novels, by preference SF and Fantasy; I've written short stories as well. I'm an original co-creator of the Wild Cards shared-world anthology series. I've written under numerous pseudonyms as well as my own name. I have a story in the latest WC book, Fort Freak, as well as writing novels in the Deathlands series.

The big news is that I've sold an epic fantasy trilogy to Tor; the first novel, The Dinosaur Lords, is due out early 2013. Please check out these free sample preview chapters on my Sense of Adventure blog.

I have cats named TJ and Squeak and a dog named Emma. I live on Jupiter. True things.

Having to all practical purposes died and been reborn last year - in large part thanks to the truly astonishing efforts of my friends - I'm busting loose and aiming to misbehave. So, watch yourselves.

For more about me, please hit my website, www.VictorMilan.com/blog/.

Thanks for reading!
