Prominent genre review site SF Crowsnest has published a glorious review of the anthology The World and the Stars. The review praises the editor, Chris Butler (who did a smashing job, by the way), and calls out some highlights of the book.
The reviewer calls my story, “The Madness of Pursuit, the Desire of Lonely Hearts“, as a “fabulous adventure”. He goes on to say that “Creating a situation where…technology still allows for an old-fashioned maritime adventure is quite a skill and this story pulls it off nicely.” Well, thank you, Mr Jones! I have the Montpelier Writers Group to thank for helping me shape this into a better story.
A lot of great stories are in this book. Buy it now! Ask for at your local bookstore or get it at Amazon. There is something in it for everyone. You won’t be disappointed.

Had a great time at the pub celebrating The Immersion Book of SF. Great friends and authors showed up for some drinks, food, and the conversation was electric. I tell you I was in awe of the High-Priestess of SF&F, Tanith Lee. She is such a sweetheart, a wonderfully warm and friendly person. Writer Al Robertson was on hand, and he is such an intelligent man he almost blew my mind. Chris Butler, Gareth Owens were chewing the fat with Jessica Payne, Stephen Gaskell, and artist Charles Harbour. The wonderful Liz and Deirdre Counihan were there, adding a touch of grace to the celebrations. All in all, a wonderful evening.
On another note, The Immersion Book of SF is selling well, so get your copy.
