Number 36 With a Bullet and Other Fine News

I’m awfully flattered that The Galaxy Express has been included in Jessica Meritt’s Top 100 Science Fiction Blogs. Great resource, so please check it out.

Care of Lisa Paitz Spindler, I recently learned about Authonomy, a community/social networking site for “for writers, readers and publishers, conceived and developed by book editors at HarperCollins.”

If you’re looking for a way to support science fiction authors (and the subgenre), here’s your chance: Rock the SFR vote for aspiring author Lisa Paitz Spindler’s THE KINSHIP. She needs about 400 points to win that prized editorial review. It’s quick and easy so click here to register.

*Shiny!* CLOSE ENCOUNTERS (April 2009) author Katherine Allred has updated her Web site!

*Sparkly!* Linnea Sinclair’s Web site also sports a sporty new look. And HOPE’S FOLLY (February, 2009) is a Romantic Times BOOKreviews top pick!

New-ish author alert: Autumn Dawn has written two SFR adventures. The first is NO WORDS ALONE (available now from Dorchester Publishing). The second in the series is WHEN SPARKS FLY (June 2009).

Author Jess Granger (BEYOND THE RAIN, August 2009) reflects on the “old concept of high-conflict” in Why Science Fiction Romance?

And now for something completely different: my latest Tor post, Are Comic Books Dying?

Joyfully yours,
