CD #60, CMD #2, SG #3, Boskone #46

Well, as you see beside these words, a new issue of Cemetery Dance is in the works. Currently issue #59 is arriving in mailboxes around the world and the next on the list is the issue you see beside me here. Click on the image for a full TOC. My story, "Living by the Highway," looks to be in the #2 slot, which is quite an honor. A bittersweet issue, in many ways, as it is also the final issue as editor for Robert Morrish, who has done so much over the past few years for bringing in new names to the magazine, myself included. He'll still be involved in the magazine as a contributor, however. Best of luck, Robert, and thanks.

Speaking of covers, check out another (still in progress as I write this). The anthology Coach's Midnight Diner 2 (Back From the Dead Edition), edited by Coach Culbertson is rolling along towards completion, with my story "Box" as one of the lead-off Editor's Choice Award stories, for which I'm quite honored. I'm quite happy to have it featured in this unique anthology, which mixes horror, mystery and science ficiton with Christian themes. They're taking pre-orders now for a discount ($15 instead of the cover price of $20) - click on the link above (or the image below) for more information. Take a look at the table of contents and you'll see I'm surrounded by a great company of other authors. Special shout-out to Michelle Pendergrass, who served as assistant editor and was responsible for me writing the story for the anthology in the first place.



On the novel front, Solomon's Grave is slated for release in North America in just a couple of months! We have to finish up the cover art and proof the manuscript galley, then get the book prepared for a release. Looks to be shaping up for sometime around Easter. More as we know it! Lots to talk about, and I'll probably give it its own blog entry soon...

Finally, I'll be a panelist at the Boskone Science Fiction Convention next month. Haven't been back to that since my first visit back in 2006. Looking forward to this. The panel schedule hasn't been announced yet, but if you're planning on attending hunt me down and say hi...
