I have been remiss about many things in the last few months, among others neglecting to post that a new story of mine is online. You can read “The Bleeding and the Bloodless” at Giganotosaurus.
New blog post: my take on the Hegemann plagiarism case regarding the German bestseller “Axolotl Roadkill”:
My article “Arthuriana Through the Ages: From History to Legend… And Back?” is now up at IROSF.

Gordon Van Gelder has put the Nebula-nominated stories from Fantasy & Science Fiction online, including my story, “Mars: A Traveler’s Guide”. All of the stories are
here. They include “The Political Prisoner” by Charlie Finlay, “Kaleidoscope” by K.D. Wentworth, “The Tomb Wife” by Gwyneth Jones, “Pride and Prometheus” by John Kessel, and “If Angels Fight” by Richard Bowes.
My story “Mars: A Traveler’s Guide” (F&SF, January 2008) is on the final Nebula ballot this year — after initially being left off. I am stunned and amazed. Happiness at the nomination is now finally beginning to return after my initial surprise.
Luckily for me, the flights to the west coast end of April turned out to be amazingly inexpensive, and my husband I will be there.
