Subterranean Press is working with Humble Bundle to create a pay-what-you-want, DRM-free ebook bundle, featuring awesome authors like Cherie Priest, Ted Chiang, Dan Simmons, Connie Willis, Harlan Ellison, Joe Lansdale and a ton of others (including me). A cut of the proceeds goes to the Worldbuilders charity as well. Come get it -- it's only available for a limited time. And tell your friends!

In celebration of the publisher's 20th anniversary, we proudly present $96 worth of sci-fi, fantasy and horror in the Humble Subterranean Press Book Bundle.

When I was in Milwaukee, doing my reading and signing, someone told me that their creative writing teacher required them to go to a reading as part of their class, but that my reading didn't count, because I wrote fantasy.

I had her record a video where I voice my opinion on the matter.

Here's the video. It isn't entirely safe for work, as I remember saying the word "Bullshit" about seven or eight times.
