The Dinosaur Knights, that is.
With yet another smashing cover by the incomparable Richard Anderson!
Book II of the Dinosaur Lords Trilogy comes out in hardcover three weeks from today – July 5th, 2016. Which I can still hardly believe.
So I went to Portales and all I got was this lousy -
For context, click the image. Or here.
Wait! That’s not lousy at all! It’s entirely Awesome! It's a plaque for being Guest of Honor at the 2016 Jack Williamson Lectureship. And that’s a real Clovis Point!
Revision: I went to Portales and all I got was this most excellent award and a wonderful time!
… And possibly even dark!
Dinosaur Knights: crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside.
So a few months back the fine folks at Grimdark Magazine, published online out of Australia, kindly invited me to contribute a story. And here it is: "Red Sails, Red Seas," on the cover, no less. Along with some mighty distinguished company.
And you can buy the whole issue on Amazon
So much meaty goodness! So to speak.
Specifically, mine began this way today:
A nutritious breakfast for girls and boys!*
We may have missed out on the full traditional course – I missed the “knock-knock” and the “thump” part – but for the first time in months a dog barking vigorously presaged the vroom of a UPS truck pulling away, having deposited an unexpected package on my porch. And this was what was inside. Double yay!
So, yeah. To start my day I got the new ARCs for The Dinosaur Knights and the inaugural slice of my Easter chocolate cake! Which I made on Easter, so it totally counts.
A new antagonist appears!
Not sure what the gruff Anglo-looking dude part is meant to represent. Not me, for sure. I only wish I could grow a beard that swell.

If you’re antagonized by some dude talking at you about nerd stuff, that is. Or by, well, me.
Yes, that’s me. Okay, no, it’s not, it’s an intensely swell picture representing some aspects of my body of work. The important thing is what it’s advertising: an upcoming apparition of me, at the 2016 Jack Williamson Lectureship at Eastern New Mexico University, Portales NM, April 7-9th. Along with the inimitable Connie Willis and no doubt a host of other SF/F luminaries from New Mexico and its environs.
But wait – there’s more! I’ll also be appearing the Wednesday after, April 15th …
Hey! You can nitpick (and what fan doesn’t love doing that?) your way to winning your very own free Audible.com audiobook of a certain senses-shattering fantasy novel!
See, I got me a problem, and you, dear Dinosaur Army, can help me fix it. Please.
