updates and stuff
October 2, 2013
Update! Forgot to mention: my friend EM Tippetts is giving away a signed copy of After the Golden Age. Woot!
A couple of anthologies are out now with stories of mine, that may be of interest:
Halloween: Magic, Mystery, and the Macabre ed. by Paula Guran has a brand-new story by me, “Unternehmen Werwolf.” If you’re a long-time fan of the Kitty series, you might recognize the main character.
Super Stories of Heroes and Villains ed. by Claude Lalumiere reprints my Wild Cards story “Just Cause.”
What else? Oh, Castle. I really really like that we have a story about two grown-up professional people working on a relationship and no one has to give up their job for the other, as if that’s some kind of virtue. I really really wish the show would give up on these multi-part thriller conspiracy stories, because they’re not very good. You know, TV land, not every poison automatically comes with an antidote. Really, I felt like I was watching NCIS, not Castle.
Agents of SHIELD. Much better on the banter this week. Didn’t feel as forced. (Setting the coaster under the broken glass? Awesome.) I sort of like that they’re borrowing gadgets from Serenity (That thumper sonic knocker-outer thing? Oh yeah.) Right on the edge of being annoyingly predictable. (I called the life raft.) It’s started to really really bug me that the Bus has two sets of wings. WHY!!!!! But hey, Nick Fury FTW.
