2017 in review

December 20, 2017

What ho, it’s that time of year again when I list all the stuff I did this year, for easy reference. Once again, I’ve been busy:


Martians Abroad. I consider this YA even if it wasn’t technically published that way. From Tor Books, January 2017.

Bannerless. From Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, July 2017. The sequel, The Wild Dead, will be out in July 2018.

Refuge of Dragons. The e-book sequel to Voices of Dragons, published March 2017.


“A Big Break in the Small Time,” as part of Wild Cards: Mississippi Roll, from Tor Books, December 2017.

Short Stories

“Dead Men in Central City, Asimov’s Science Fiction, Sept/Oct. 2017

“The Evening of Their Span of Days,” Infinity Wars, ed. Jonathan Strahan, Solaris Books, September 2017.

“Bellum Romanum,” Urban Enemies, ed. Joseph Nassise, Gallery Books, August 1, 2017.

“I Have Been Drowned in Rain”, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, April 2017.

“Alchemy,” Tor.com, March 2017, as part of the Nevertheless, She Persisted compilation.

“Redcap,” Nightmare Magazine, January 2017.

A special and entirely self-serving note in regard to anyone using this list to help with award nominations:  This year’s Hugo Awards will once again include a Best Series Hugo. There are some pretty specific requirements for a series to be eligible, including one that there be a new installment in the series that year. The Kitty Norville Series wasn’t eligible last year because I wrapped up the novels the year before. I admit, I was kind of bummed.

This year, however, I have two short stories set in the world:  “Dead Men in Central City” is about vampire Rick, and “Bellum Romanum” is the origin story of Kitty’s long-time nemesis, Roman. So the series is eligible this year. Just sayin’.
