Tomorrow is Book Day, but I will be in New York City for a reading from Lovecraft Unbound with la Datlow and others, so I made you a Wordle in slightly premature celebration!

This is what BtMB looks like in terms of word frequency, with certain common English words trimmed out:

Here's the publisher's page on the book, with various order-online links. And then for comparison's sake, here's my webpage on The Edda of Burdens, of which this is book 2. (Although really, you can read these in any order. The editor, however, who is wise, prefers publication order.)

...oddly enough, it's not actually a book about Strifbjorn.

And because I love you that much, here's the first scene:

Mwahahahahahaha. Ahem. That was unbecoming, wasn't it?

As you may have gathered, I'm going to be busting out all over the place in the next two weeks. Which is to say, I'm appearing (or being produced, in magician's terminology) in the following places and times:

This is a group celebration for Ellen Datlow's anthology Lovecraft Unbound, in which I have a story with Sarah Monette--"Mongoose,"--set in the same world as Fast Ships, Black Sails' "Boojum."

Come see me!

...and then I'm going to go hide in my cave and write books until it's time for 4th Street. Well, I'll have plenty of times to write books in my head while driving.

Oh, and my 20th high school reunion is this month, too, if I make it.

i dreamed that i was dying. i saw my angeline.

I just got my  contributor's copies of Eclipse Three (Jonathan Strahan, ed.), about which I'm tremendously excited.

Not only is it full of great stories, but look at that lineup! I'm flattered and a little awed to be in such amazing company. (Inside the book, we also find Peter S. Beagle, Jeffrey Ford, Nnedi Okorafor, and others.)

And now, because my cruelty is tempered by mercy, I offer you scene two of By the Mountain Bound. (Scene three, which is the last scene of Chapter One, will be posted before I leave for climbing tonight. Eventually, these will go up on the web page, but for now this is an exclusive.)
