Sorry for any delays in posting. After a death in the family, I am refocusing and getting back on track.
Getting ready for Fantasycon. The steampunk book is ready, with one more change in the line-up–added in Aliette de Bodard and “Kung Fu Jesus Man” Lavie Tidhar for what is a really cool anthology. See the awesome cover by Charles Harbour at the Immersion press website.
I shall have a table in the dealer’s room, so come by and say hi and buy a book or two, or three, or four…. (All books will be reduced in price.)
I will have on hand for purchase Lavie Tidhar’s excellent Jesus and the Eightfold Path for sale. It is a beautiful limited-edition hardcover novella. Check out the great cover art from Melissa Gay at the website.
You can also pick up Fun With Rainbows by Gareth Owens, The Immersion Book of SF, edited by me, and The Immersion Book of Steampunk, edited by Gareth D Jones and myself.

I can finally say I am coming to the end of reworking the TOC for the Immersion Book of Steampunk. If I don’t get bogged down with serious energy-fail, this thing could see the light of day very soon.

Having had a great few months, book-wise, I turn my attention to the latest Immersion Press title, The Immersion Book of Steampunk. I am really happy that my friend Gareth Owens contributed a tale. His new story really adds some mean coolness to this anthology. And with Paul di Filippo rounding off the book, you can’t go wrong. Unless you don’t like steampunk…
Charlie Harbour once again demonstrates why he has been nominated for a BFSA Award for artwork, as his cover for the steampunk book is by far his best yet! I can’t wait to show it to you.
As a recent convert to the genre of steampunk, I must say there are some really cool stories out there. Give it a try, if you haven’t already.
Being a Lavie Tidhar fan makes this next announcement all the more fantastic. Immersion Press will be releasing a hardcover, limited-edition of his novella Jesus and the Eightfold Path, which I hear is coming along smoothly. I’ve seen the cover art and it kicks ass!
While I have had to bow out of EasterCon, I will hopefully see some of you at FantasyCon in Brighton.

The incredible Charles Tan conducts an interview with me over at the reknowned SF Signal website. We talk all things SF, including The Immersion Book of SF, fiction, Immersion Press, and, well, you go read the rest.
SF Signal is a great place for news and reviews of all things going on in the world of speculative fiction. I am very stoked to be on the site, as it is one of the best places to go for SF, and there is something there for everyone. You could, literally, spend a whole day going through all the great information there.
So go on! Get going!

The good news is that Gareth D Jones (not to be confused with Gareth Owens) will be editing The Immersion Book of Steampunk. I met Gareth at Eastercon and he is a great guy and a good author to boot. He will do an exceptional job in the role. The book is scheduled to be released tentatively by late 2011.
The Immersion Book of SF is in final tweaking. I can’t wait to get this beast off my back and into your loving hands. Then I will move on to The Immersion Book of SF Vol 2, also for a late 2011 release.
In the meantime, roll on the summer!
