First up, I'll be rejoining Daddy Warpig and Dorrinal tomorrow at 4 PM Central for a brand-new episode of Geek Gab, which made its highly anticipated and triumphant return last week. I'm super excited about tomorrow's show topic: Mad Max: Fury Road.
While we're on the subject of podcasts, I'd be remiss not to mention that more Superversive SF live streams are on the way.

The lovely, gracious, and talented L. Jagi Lamplighter is executing editing duties as I write this post. Her most significant comment on Souldancer so far has simply been to call it "eerie". So I know I've done my job.
Yes, the second book is scarier than the one set in hell. Take a moment to reflect on that.
An eerie book demands an eerie cover. I'm pleased to announce my renewed collaboration with an artist whose work my esteemed colleague David Hallquist described as "Pure nightmare fuel": the inimitable Marcelo Orsi Blanco. I'm sure he'll adorn Souldancer in a cover that will at least match his exquisite work on its predecessor.

It's shaping up to be an exciting book launch. Keep an eye on this blog, plus my Twitter and Facebook posts for more news and special offers as Souldancer gets closer to release.
Last chronologically, but far from least in importance, my short story "Anacyclosis" has been scheduled to appear in Sci Phi Journal #10.
Issue #7 was released just recently, and editor Jason Rennie reports that he and the SPJ staff are busy assembling Issue #8. If you're a sci-fi fan from way back who finds the current wave of message fic alienating, or if you're new to SF but have a philosophical bent, I strongly encourage you to give Sci Phi Journal a try.
