It's a rainy day,and I've been busy with assorted errands and visits and such, and it's only at this late afternoon hour that I'm here to tell you that you have to stop, stop whatever you're doing, and hie thyself (people talk like that, right?) over to my website and catch this week's EATING AUTHORS because the guest is none other than Joe (SFWA Grandmaster) Haldeman!

Welcome to the first Monday of Spring (or the first Monday of Autumn, if you're reading this south of the equator). How to celebrate? Well, call me biased, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a better way than to stop by my blog and visit with this week's EATING AUTHORS guest, Nebula Award nominee Linda Nagata!

Forget your snow worries (if you've got them). Stop bemoaning the money you lost in your office Oscar pool. Instead, hike on over to my blog and immerse yourself in a truly decadent episode of EATING AUTHORS with this week's guest, Marie Brennan

I am very happy to say that for the second year in a row I have been nominated for a Nebula Award. Thank you to the many SFWA members who took the time to read my novella. Bigger thanks to those who then found it worthy of a nomination.

As previously, the nominated work is in the novella category and is another tale from my Amazing Conroy (a stage hypnotist in spaaaace!) stories. It's entitled "Trial of the Century," and appears in the anthology WORLD JUMPING from Hadley Rille Books.

You can download a free copy in PDF, ePub, or mobi format here: http://j.mp/CenturyTrial

This novella IS eligible for the Hugo as well, so even if you're not a SFWA member, do please take a look.

Between coming home from Atlanta on Sunday, snow, spending Monday in New York City, and more snow, I failed to tell you this yesterday: Go to my blog and enjoy the most memorable meal being offered up by this week's guest, author and physicist Ian Tregllis!

After a dreary weekend of cold rain, the sun has actually come out. To celebrate this reminder that it really is Spring (at least here in the northern hemisphere), why not drop by my blog and read up on what Amelia Beamer (this week's EATING AUTHOR guest) has to say about her most memorable meal?

Welcome to another Monday, this one complete with some snow. Despite the forecast, it looks like most of the white stuff fell to the south, and so I'll likely still be heading up to NYC this afternoon for hypnosis fun. 

In the meantime, head on over to my blog for another stunning installment of EATING AUTHORS and this week's guest, Carol Berg!

It's a wacky Monday for me, filled with variances to my normal Monday schedule. Fortunately, the weekly EATING AUTHORS post gets prepared in advance, so at 7:30 this morning it was waiting for you with E. C. Myers's most memorable meal. If you haven't already done so, go check it out!

Would you like some free fiction from a Nebula Nominee? Well, over on my blog, in honor of today being INTERNATIONAL POLAR BEAR DAY, I'm giving away electronic copies of my short story, "Mars Needs Baby Seals."

The last Monday of the month has rolled around. The warm(er) weather of the past two days has ended and we're back below freezing, with more snow expected in the next day or so. Not of which should stop you from popping over to my blog and meeting this week's EATING AUTHOR guest, Juliet E. McKenna. Warning: there are snails ahead!

Story
Tagline
author / publisher / psychologist / hypnotist / klingonist
Introduction
I have a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, and  spent ten years as a college professor. I currently work as the director of research and analytics for a series of mental health and addiction treatment facilities. Additionally, I'm a certified hypnotherapist, using my powers of mind control to help other authors.

I'm also the founder and director of the Klingon Language Institute, which has been a very wild ride. More recently, I began a speculative fiction small press, Paper Golem, aimed at serving the niche of up-and-coming new writers as well as providing a market for novellas.

In 2007, I was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer; in 2010 I received a Hugo nomination for best short story; in 2013 I garnered a Nebula nomination for best novella. In fiction I'm probably most known for the series of stories, novelettes, and novels about the Amazing Conroy and his buffalo dog companion, Reggie.

I live near Philadelphia with my wife, Valerie, who is neither a psychologist nor a Klingon speaker.
