In Which I Lecture You!



A new antagonist appears!

2015-03-21 ENMU Poster for Me!

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 …

We Have A Winner!


We have a winner for our “nitpick your way to winning a free book” contest!


Congratulations to good friend, loyal Dinosaur Army member and sometime house and pet sitter, Nan Silvernail!

You win your choice of the audiobook of The Dinosaur Lords or an autographed hardcover copy of The Dinosaur Knights, Nan! When it actually comes out, of course. (July 5th, 2016, for those keeping score at home.)

Permanent Vacation, Paradise Style!


Okay, that probably sounds unnecessarily ominous. What I mean is that, rather than trying to hunt for Your Ticket to Paradise! when you're trying to figure out where on Paradise anything is, whilst reading the senses-shattering epic fantasy, The Dinosaur Lords. Instead, thanks to the magic of my Web-Master Supreme, Ron Miles, you can easily see it any old time!

Victor Milan - THE DINOSAUR LORDS - Nuevaropa with scale

No, not here. Okay, here, too. But just wait for it, okay?

So where, I pretend to hear you ask, can you find the new, easily accessible home for your map of the Empire of Nuevaropa?

In Which I Happily Dance!


I invite you all to join me now in a most triumphant Tyrannosaur Roar: RAWR!!1!

And to share my Dinosaur Happy Dance!


There are many images for Dinosaur Happy Dance online, because of course there are.

Okay, Pterosaur Happy Dance*.  Totally not a dinosaur.  But it counts!

As to why – I just finished reviewing and fixing the copyedited manuscript for The Dinosaur Knights, and sent it in to Tor!

In Which I Appear…Sonically!


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.

DinoLords: Presents From Brazil!


So a couple weeks ago I got a box left on my porch.  Been dilatory posting a pic of its amazing contents for the same reason I haven’t posted anything for too long: life got on top of me, in ways both good and bad. As life does.

Anyway, let’s remedy both those omissions with this:

2015-11-20 DinoLords Swag From DarkSide! 001 IMG_20151120_160744

Thanks, DarkSide!

DarkSide Books has clearly yet again outdone itself with its beautiful graphic design and promotional material. Of which it was kind and generous enough to send a sampling to me.

My Final Apparition of 2015!


So yeah, this post is primarily to shill for my signing next Sunday, October 18th, at 3:00 PM at Bookworks in Albuquerque. Which happens to be right down the street from me, just north of the corner of Griegos and Río Grande Blvd!

But first, the creative madmen and women at DarkSide are at it again:

Please can I have in the the US, Tor? Please? Puh-LEEZE?

That title translates to “The Dinosaur Lords According to Jesus.” I swear to, uh, God. And you can click the title in case you want to buy the book in Portuguese! How can you resist?
