We’re recovering here from the blast of tropical storm Isais. It didn’t dump all that much rain on Long island, but wow, the winds. Although they weren’t hurricane speed, apparently they came fairly close. Trees and power lines are down everywhere.
I won’t be able to participate in the Con-tinual programming panel “SciFi Doesn’t Have to be Hard” because they recorded it yesterday during the storm when my power was out. So I had no access to Zoom. We’re looking into alternate ways for me to take part in the virtual con. Stay tuned here for updates!

I posted a new entry on my Patreon page. I’m experimenting with readings, trying to see what works better. I posted a short audio-only file, a few scenes of the story “Children of the Dust,” which is about Bhaaj’s youth.

Here are links to the next two events of my virtual book tour for The Vanished Seas.
1) Paul Semel did a wonderful interview about the book that is up at his site.
2) Tony Daniel did a podcast interview with me on the Baen Free Radio Hour where he asked me all sorts of questions about the book and the background of my universe. I’m lucky he is such a good interviewer, because he almost makes me sound intelligent. The interview is at the Baen Free Radio Hour.
