Prince of Storms Out Early in Paperback

Pleased to announce that the concluding volume of The Entire and The Rose in trade paper is shipping early, on July 1st!  I’ll consider it a birthday gift for my next-day Queen of Everything celebration.

Pyr delivers a gorgeous cover with slightly different color treatment than the hardcover. I am thrilled with this brooding, dramatic and perfectly captured moment. Undying thanks to Stephan Martiniere for his care with my four-book series and for his genius.

From the reviewers:

Prince of Storms is the perfect conclusion to what could well be one of the most ambitious and fascinating ongoing scifi series out there. Highly recommended. . .” –Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist

“One of the most captivating multi-universe, multi-cultural settings in science fiction history.” –Greg L. Johnson, SF Site

See Kay’s interview with audible.com on the series.

To the mundane mainstream–well, they’ve never heard of ’em.

I am trying to cover my disappointment with the awards this year. We’ve all got opinions on who won and who should have won. Looking into the numbers on the runners-up, I can say it sure looks like name recognition can tip the scales. No surprise, but it’s another reason I hate to see the Hugos overblown. Read More…

Rats on Evil Stars

Kay and Brenda Cooper at U. Book Store in Seattle.

Brenda Cooper and I recently shared a headline event at U Book Store in Seattle. It was very interesting to hear her read from her new book, The Silver Ship and the Sea. She knows how to put emotional punch into a scene, and reads beautifully, besides. I didn’t think it was quite fair that she too had Stephan Martiniere cover. Hey, he’s My guy! Read More…
