Evgeni Maloshenkov, the artist who did the interior art for my short story collection and re-release of The Lays of Anuskaya, has some cool new artwork up. He's currently open for work, so if you have any projects you think might be a fit, be sure to drop him a line.

Woke up with a nice plot breakthrough for the WIP. Love it when the sleeping mind solves problems for you. #wassleeping

A new SF Signal Mind Meld, in which I (and a gaggle of others) answer the question: with which character from fiction would you most like to sit down and have a pint?

Fighting hard to shed my adult voice and find my middle grade voice. Found a fun addition to a scene just now. Brightens up the entire chapter.

Episode 100 of Speculate! features a writing discussion based on Garth Nix's and Sean Williams' Troubletwisters. We also do a small retrospective on the 99 other episodes. Ok, not each and every one, but it was fun to reminisce about the show and to see how far we've come.

"Solar still makes up only a tiny fraction of overall energy usage on an absolute basis — about 0.17%. But it's an unstoppable trend."

We would be wise to incentivize the energy producers to embrace this switch sooner rather than later, but maybe it won't make a difference. Maybe the industry will soon be forced there out of sheer economics. But what I really hope Washington and states will do is to create retraining programs to find displaced workers new jobs in the growing clean energy market. That'll keep the disruption and pain to a minimum, and will help in the adoption at large and small scales.

That will be tricky as I doubt many companies would volunteer to submit to planned obsolescence. Change is coming no matter what though!

I'm proud to announce my inclusion in the Steampunk vs. Aliens anthology, the debut from Zombies Need Brains (the, ahem, brainchild of Joshua B. Palmatier and Patricia Bray). Ian Tregillis, SC Butler, Seanan McGuire, and a host of other great authors are included in the lineup.

More after the jump!

I've been here several times because I'm a bit of a pizza nut. They do a very nice job with their pizzas. The decor is nice and interesting. And the service has always been nice and attentive. Well worth a try if you enjoy a good slice.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a nice, if corporate, area of Shelton. The food was of the highest quality. I had the buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, and artichoke antipasto plate, and it was excellent. The rose of salmon was very nicely balanced. The strong cherry and balsamic sauce mixed well with the salmon and horseradish mashed potatoes. And the tiramisu had a very luscious and delicate flavor. If I had any quibbles, it was that the salmon was very slightly undersalted, and the tiramisu had too much cocoa powder. But really, these were very minor complaints. The food was some of the highest quality I've ever had. Worth it if you're looking for a swank place to have a special dinner.

I called Weather Tight after seeing such good reviews. However, I never got past the initial phone call. They asked if I was married. I said yes. They then proceeded to ask that I pick a time that my wife and I were both available. I was not trying to exclude my wife--far from it--but we're both busy, so I said I would be the only one meeting with them. At which point they flat out refused to schedule the appointment with me. I understand that they want to sell to both the husband and wife, but I completely disagree with an insistence that both be there simply to come out and provide an estimate. I told them no thanks and moved on. Sigma Exteriors, which also got great ratings, scheduled this simple appointment with no problems, so I'll be going with them.
