When it rains it pours, and this seems to be the season for lots of interviews, in this case spanning my novels RHYMER and RHYMER: HOODE (due out next summer), as well as short fiction, teaching, and (to borrow from Frank Zappa) green things in general. -gf
Sometimes when it rains it pours. As an example, today I wrapped up the revisions of the second RHYMER novel (yay me). And:
- An Interview I did with Wired.com’s Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy went live. The interview discusses Rhymer, but also a number of short stories contained in my first collection, recently reprinted in ebook format as The Girlfriends of Dorian Gray & Other Stories, at Book View Café.
- I received by mail a copy of Babelzine Vol. 3, a Japanese fantasy & science fiction magazine containing a translation of one of those stories, “Madonna of the Maquiladora.” (See below)
A nice way to start July.
On the Oddcast this week we interview Michael Ventrella: author, editor, speaker, and lawyer. His latest non-fiction book is How to Argue the Constitution with a Conservative from Gray Rabbit Publications, featuring artwork from Pulitzer-Prize winning editorial cartoonist Darrin Bell. Anthologies include Baker Street Irregulars (co-edited with New York Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Maberry) and, most recently, Across the Universe, a Beatles-themed anthology (co-edited with Randee Dawn) from Fantastic Books. He also heads the Pocono Liars Club. Among other things, Ventrella discusses why you want to refresh yourself on the Constitution, and what it means to write books about The Monkees. With the Oddcast Irregulars: Gregory Frost, Jon McGoran, Kelly Simmons, Merry Jones and Keith Strunk.
