My second-ever podcast interview is out! A few weeks back John Anealio interviewed me for the Functional Nerds Podcast. His usual partner in crime (and engineer) Patrick Hester was indisposed, so John brought on Kristi Charish to help interview and be interviewed. It went well, I thought. Plus now I know, more or less, how to use Google Hangouts as well as Skype. Joy.
It’s like a cross between Jurassic Park and … oh.
More groovy goodness from Brazil, this time courtesy of fan Imagine3711!
And – late last night, the interview dropped! Feel free to take time out from reading this gripping prose and give it a listen.
But first – it ain’t on the Amazon page for The Dinosaur Lords yet, but Claire "The Editor" Eddy emailed me today to tell me that the mass market paperback is due out in May, 2016!

Also we got a release date for Book II: The Dinosaur Knights: it hits shelves July 5th, 2016!
But wait! There’s more! So much more.
Yes, we’re going back -
But for what?
Only just a RUSH SECOND PRINTING FOR THE FREAKIN’ DINOSAUR LORDS!!1! Is all.
Can I get a mighty RAWWWWWWR!!?
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.
