A Long Time Coming

Sorry I’ve been off the radar for a while but I’ve been . . . er . . . off the radar.

So a here are a few things that I’ve been neglectful in mentioning some Salooners during my surprise hiatus:

Justin Howe has co-authored a great article on the influence of role-playing games on fantasy writers over on Clarkesworld. Included are interviews with Jeff VanderMeer, Jay Lake, Paul Witcover, Tim Pratt, Tim Waggoner, Catherynne Valente, John O’Neill, Howard A. Jones, and China Mieville. That’s a lot of talent rolling them 20-sided dice.

Also, if it’s not too late pick up the April/May issue of Asimov’s for Nick Wolven’s story “An Art, Like Everything Else”. I saw an early draft of Nick’s story at last year’s Clarion Workshop and lemme tell you – it’s good. Heartbreaking, but good. If you can’t find a print copy you can get an e-book of the issue at fictionwise.

Check this stuff out. These guys are good.
