Have been one of those days.
But not one of those days. Oh, (Dinosaur) Lordy, no.
So let me recap – as best I can even recall:
So a week ago Sunday I went to the wonderful memorial for Roger Zelazny hosted by George R. R. Martin at his Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe. It was touching – and good to be reminded that my late friend and Wild Cards colleague wasn’t just one of the greatest writers ever, but a really great guy.
The audience was in large part a rogues’ gallery of New Mexico SF/F writers, unsurprisingly. And afterwards at the reception I heard from several of them a song I’ve heard before: my upcoming dinosaur fantasy novel is getting a lot of buzz.
So who wants more awesome news about The Dinosaur Lords?
Too bad. You’re getting it anyway.
But it starts, oddly enough, with this.
Ian Tregillis is a good friend of mine, a demon writer of SF and Fantasy, and an astrophysicist. (No, really.) His wife, Sara Gmitter, posted a link to this suave review of his newest from Publishers Weekly on Facebook. I naturally reposted it on my own Timeline.
At which Sara came back promptly to thank me – and congratulate me for “Dinosaur Lords place on the top 10 list in that same issue of PW!”
