Martha Well's The Serpent Sea, second in her Books of the Raksura series, is available for preorder on Barnes and Noble, Amazon US, Amazon UK, and Amazon.ca. I read an early draft of this and it's a wonderful, exciting, satisfying read.
Martha also posted a new story to her website, set in the same universe as the series: The Almost Last Voyage of the Wind-ship Escarpment.
In nonficitive land, Seanan McGuire is smart and impassioned about ebooks, books, and the question of poverty in Across the digital divide. I love my ereader, but we still need books, we will need books--and libraries--for a long long time to come.
Dayjob has been and continues v. busy, which is kind of sucking my soul--or at least my enjoyment of daily life--right out of me. Still eke-ing out a bit of fic in the form of story being written with the talented impatientape, and another I seem to have been dragooned into, both of which have actual deadlines.
Oh for that time dilation thingummy, so I can have more time for lounging, dreaming, writing, yoga, meditating, and the enjoyable bits of life... I seriously don't get paid enough at the dayjob for it to be soul suckingly busy.
