Exciting: "Cold Words" to be anthologized!

Some of you may have seen me going, "I have exciting secret news" last week. At this point I can tell you what it is. My novelette, "Cold Words," (Analog, Oct. 2009) has been selected for inclusion in Analog's very first Kindle anthology: Into the New Millennium: Trailblazing Tales from Analog Science Fiction and Fact 2000-2010!

I'm thrilled at this. I was very proud of "Cold Words" and love my protagonist, Rulii - in fact, I've been thinking for some time about how to do a sequel to this story. I read a part of "Cold Words" aloud at Westercon, and was asked whether it had been anthologized... at the time I had to say no, but no longer! I will let you all know as soon as I learn more about the publication date.

  1. Yay for getting to announce and congrats. That speaks to the strength of the story, and it is recognition "Cold Words" deserves. I, for one, would love to see more from Rulii or his world.

  3. Thanks, Joshua, Margaret, and Heidi. Margaret, I certainly have to go back to Aurru. Planning on it, when time permits. Heidi, I'm really thrilled to have something coming out electronically. Makes it more accessible.
