Happy New 2011

Happy New Year, Everyone!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year period, and didn’t over-indulge too much. 🙂

This first blog post of 2011 will (mostly) focus on 2010, which for me was a pretty good year overall. The novels came out, and the anthology came out, and I’m starting to see some nice feedback from people about them.

So to round all of this up, on the day that the Hugo nominations opened, and midway through the Nebula and BSFA voting periods, I’ve taken a leaf out of Mary Robinette Kowal’s book, and summarized my 2010 fiction output. 

Novel – Damage Time  Angry Robot Books

Anthology – Dark Spires  Wizard’s Tower Press (cover by Andy Bigwood)

Novelette – ‘Spindizzy’ first appeared in Dark Spires

Short Story – ‘Chameleon,’ Daily Science Fiction

Short Story – ‘Fairytale,’ Four Flash Fictions 

Short Story – ‘The Turning World’ appeared here.

If you are reading for awards this year, please do drop me a line and I’ll send you a copy. Sadly, although Winter Song made the BSFA long-list, it’s ineligible, so it’s been withdrawn. But thank you to that person or those people who nominated it.

Also on the subject of 2010, a link to an interview that appeared late in the year and may have been swallowed in the tsunami of Christmassy stuff. The Angry Robot podcast with Mur Lafferty and the impressive Matt Forbeck is to be found here.

And lastly, here’s a link to a terrific blog post by Charlie Stross, who as he often does, puts things nicely in perspective. There’s no obvious reason for the link, other than that I think we all need reminding from time to time that things are better than we often give them credit for.

On now to 2011…
