Omnivoracious Calls Series a Classic

A very generous review from Jeff VanderMeer at Omnivoracious.

Suggesting that The Entire and The Rose is “part of a modern classic,” he says that “Bright of the Sky and just-released A World Too Near feature a brilliant SF setting that rivals Larry Niven’s Ringworld and Philip Jose Farmer’s Riversworld series for sheer invention, adventure, complexity, and sense of wonder.”

Check out this Amazon blog, anyway, if you haven’t already. Their motto: “Hungry for the next good book.”

My Series on Audiobooks

Very jazzed to report that the four books of The Entire and The Rose will soon be available for digital download from Audible. They may also offer CDs and audio cassettes. Audible is eager to get Bright of the Sky and A World Too Near out there, so I presume no long delays. Books three and four will be available at simultaneous with the hardcover publication, which, in the case of City Without End, will be February, 2009.

I’ll announce here when they’re up on

Pod Promo

Here’s a cool thing: I have a 60 second promo for Bright of the Sky on a podcast. Shaun Farrell of Adventures in Scifi Publishing put together a terrific promo with music, and I’ll be reaching 3,000 to 7,000 listeners with it.  This time the promo is with episode 46, one that features an interview with Timothy Zahn. I think Shaun did a terrific job on the promo, and it was fun to hear it. And Adventures in Scfi Publishing is a little gem of a site, if you haven’t yet discovered it!

More of Near

Pyr has the the opening of A World Too Near up on their website (pages that can be downloaded as a pdf file), with a cool banner treatment. Nice job, Lou! This is about 40 pages more than I’m offering on my website. Warning: Ya know this is a series of four, right? A World Too Near is Book Two, and therein lie big spoilers. Here are the first 60 pages. Book One, of course, is Bright of the Sky.
