Why you Really need a writing conference

The weekend of May 16th I’m helping out with my favorite local writing conference. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you really should read the end of this blog where I tell you about Write on the River. But if not:

You still really need a writing conference.

I once asked an acquaintance why her husband, an avid and sporadically published author wasn’t attending our local conference. She said, in effect, “Oh, David doesn’t think writing can be taught.”

It was such an oddball, uninformed comment, I didn’t know what to say.

I’m not going to argue about talent being nature or nurture. If you have a leaden ear for language you will not go far in this business. But to say that therefore nothing can be taught is silly. Read More…

The Braided World is back

braidedworld

I’m excited to announce the re-issue of my John W. Campbell Award finalist, The Braided World. If alien contact and cultures are your cup of tea, I think you will enjoy this story of xenophobia, cultural shock, and forbidden love.

The most troubling aliens are the ones that appear to be human. Meet the young, untested captain of the expedition, Anton Prados.

And meet the Dassa . . .

Maximum Ice is back

In this lovely re-issue, my story of an altered earth, and a cold welcome to the return of the generation ship Star Road. Available in eBook.

Nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award.

maximumice for webZoya Kundara has lived on the space vessel Star Road for 250 years. As Ship Mother, she is awakened from Deep Sleep in times of crisis, providing counsel to generations of its Romany crew. Now the ship has returned home, only to discover an Earth blanketed in a pearl-white mantle called Ice–a grand and mysterious ecology of information-bearing crystals.

To find a home for her crew, Zoya must approach the denizens of thisĀ  new Earth: The Ice Nuns, who seek sole control of the physics-defying crystals; people huddled like moles in underground techno-warrens; and the snow witches, both mad and prophetic . . . and one in particular, who will defend the kingdom of Ice with power and immortal cunning.
