astro-image of the day: star blows a bubble

Just got out of the last "Science, Technology, & Society: Examining the Future Through a Science-Fiction Lens" class. *sniff* It was much fun, as the students were giving their semester's-end presentations. Much creativity and fine research. I'll miss these people and this class, but we plan to form a local SF interest group to gather for movies, book discussions, and general SFnal-ness.

Tomorrow morning at 0-dark-early I hop in a car with Nate and we head to the Kansas City "International" airport, then land in New York City for the Nebula Awards Weekend. Tonight I still need to finish some things in preparation for the author-agent speed-dating event tomorrow afternoon, right after Nate and Jim Gunn and I give our AboutSF presentation.

Those of you also heading there: See you soon!

Now for today's astro-image. I almost forgot, been so busy.

new novel excerpt!

Dear friends -

I've updated my website's novel page by revising the book descriptions, adding a book (the one I'm working on with Jim), and uploading new novel sections from my book, Transcendence (not to be confused with Transcendental, Jim's book). I uploaded five sections on separate pages for easier reading.

Let me know what you think of it!

Oh, and in case you missed the other excerpt from Empire Ship, check it out and let me know what you think of it!

Okay, now off to finish prepping for tomorrow's meeting with the agents. Wish me luck!
