Friday, October 4, 2013Officially Autumn...
...and past time for an update.
The release date for Burning Paradise (at Amazon.com or the retailer of your choice -- I assume you all know how to buy books) is just a month away now. According to the starred review at Publishers Weekly, it's "a deeply thoughtful, deliberately discomfiting book that will linger long and uneasily in the reader’s mind." Or so one hopes. We're anticipating a launch party at Bakka-Phoenix Books, probably the 26th of October: keep an eye on the store's website for details. And if you're anywhere near Toronto, please feel free to show up and say hi. These events are utterly informal and I'm always happy to chat with a reader.
Otherwise, I'm currently closing in on the last chapter of new book The Affinities. Very pleased with this one. It's perhaps the closest thing to a straight Wellsian work of extrapolative science fiction I've ever written...but also the most mainstream-reader-friendly of my novels. And I have a raft of notes for the book after that, tentatively titled The Last Year.
I'll be revamping this slightly archaic website sometime in the next year. In the meantime, anyone so inclined can find me on Facebook.
