The Change Keeps Happening!

Or at least, it’s happening again.

Not the Change, which happened March 17, 1998 at 6:15 PM PST (tl;dr: shit broke.) The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth, the senses-shattering anthology edited by Steve “S. M.” Stirling! Which is set after – well, you know.

Yes, we’re doing it again – as in signing it. At least some or all of the NM authors who contributed, which is about most of us.  And this time we’re doing it here:

Page One Storefront

Yes, that’s Albuquerque’s own swell Page One Bookstore. Where we’ll be ringing in The Change at 4 PM on Saturday, June 27th.

Dinosaurian Bucket List

Not for dinosaurs. Except for birds, that ship sailed 66 million years ago.

So Steve “S. M.” Stirling (that name will come up later, spoilers) and I have a mild and jocular debate going on: he claims we (in our early sixties) are doomed to be the last generation to die before human lifespans get vastly extended.

I maintain that, with a little luck, if we can just hold on a few more years, we’ll slide in under the wire.

In any event, I never saw fit to start myself a “bucket list.” At least till now.

“RAWR means RAWR, unfortunately bald little dromaeosaur!”

Yeah. I need to hit at least some of these before I die. I’m especially hipped on the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Alberta, Canada, since my friend Randi Tinkham Hewett turned me on to it. And also  Jurassic Land, since for the last few years I’ve had the conviction I needed to visit Istanbul, inexplicably – except for my love of history, since the city’s drenched in the stuff.

And you can help me … by continuing to do the good work of spreading the word about my upcoming epic fantasy,

The Dinosaur Lords,

to all your friends and family! Please.

For The Change!

Remember how the launch party for the (now released!) anthology The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth was supposed to be held at George RR Martin's Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, NM, on Monday, June 15 at 7 PM? Well, it’s still happening the same date and time.

Just not the same place.

Instead it’s here:

In the heart of The Railyard in downtown Santa Fe, it says right here.

What happened was, the Cocteau scored a run of Jurassic World, no less.  But apparently they had to agree to screen it on Monday night or face a fate worse than rampaging dinosaurs.

So, as mentioned here yesterday, Steve “S. M.” Stirling’s anthology The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth is coming out a week from today.

The Master, Frank Frazetta’s, cover for Conan the Usurper.

For me, his Conan paintings are what “pulp” is all about.

And yes, this image does pertain. Kind of. 

Just to recap, among others Steve invited members of

Critical Mass,

our New Mexico writers group to contribute. I

And not just any change. The Change.

Turn and face the strange….

You’re familiar with S. M. Stirling’s Emberverse novels, right?  They’re perennial best-sellers – and if not quite on a George or Diana scale, they’re still right up there. They tell the story of an alternate Earth in which, one day, modern technology … stopped.

And they’re pretty wildly entertaining and fun. They started out as mostly alt-history SF, and have evolved in a heroic fantasy direction.

Now meet The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth. It’s an anthology of stories set in Steve’s Changed Earth. And I’m in it.

And it’s due out – whoa! June 2nd, which is a week from tomorrow!

Launching Dinos!

Okay, now, this is seriously great.

This here is the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It happens to be owned by one George R. R. Martin.

And thanks to That American Tolkien Guy, it will also be the site of the World Premier Launch Party for a modest little tome I like to call The Dinosaur Lords on Monday, August 3rd, 2015.

Which also happens to be my 61st birthday. How cool is that?
