Progress Report, in which I am cryptic

Still doing the novel critiquing thing, and will be for the next few weeks.

Beyond that, not much exciting happened last week.  Except for one thing, only tangentially related to writing, which I can’t share just yet.  But I will, when the time is right.  Oh yes, I will.

Sorry to be so cryptic.  Can’t be helped.

In writing-related program activities, I turned in a guest app for Dragon*Con, and got a few more mss back into circulation–which, of course, means it’s time for . . .

Write Club Updates:

Tier one rejection from Clarkesworld, and a tier two rejection from Lightspeed.  Response time–three days for each.  So it goes.

Time to chill . . . ’til the next episode.

The Book of Eli: The Sacred Apocalypse

My review of The Book of Eli is now up at Fantasy.  Check it out, if you’re of a mind.

Hugos 2010!

As you may know, the Hugo nominations are now open.  Members of Aussiecon 4 and Anticipation are eligible to nominate.

I have four eligible works, two short stories and two novelettes:

"Fuel," Cosmos (online edition only), April 2009, short story

"The Multiplicity Has Arrived," Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, issue 12, May 2009, short story

"Gone Black," Writers of the Future Volume 25, Galaxy Press, September 2009, novelette

"Canaan," Jim Baen’s Universe, issue 21, October 2009, novelette

"Fuel" is available for free online.  If you’re a potential Hugo voter and would like copies of any of the other three stories, drop me a line in comments.

The nomination deadline is March 13.  Whether you vote for me or not, please nominate something you find deserving.
