Your Comment Makes No Sense to Me, So Here’s a Video

I swear to Holy Bleeding God that the next time I read a writer mewling out an “Oh noes!! The book market is changing! Weesa all gonna die!” message somewhere on the Internet, I’m going to track that writer down and beat them square on the head with a goddamn lead pipe. Honestly. Die already, […]

Agony Column Podcast and Review of The Last Colony

When I was on tour, I stopped in with Rick Kleffel of the Agony Column for a long and wide-ranging interview, in which we talked about the books, being online, my personal history, and so on. If you’re interested, here’s the link to that. I’m particularly pleased with the interview because it is almost entirely […]

The Face of the Ghost Brigades

This fellow purports to be the face you see on the cover of the Subterranean Press limited edition version of The Ghost Brigades; apparently he knows Vincent Chong, the artist, and Chong used his likeness.

New Listing Announcement: Top 15 (or Maybe 20, We’ll See) SF/F News/Group Blogs

Oh, all right. After getting more than one e-mail from proprietors of SF/F news and/or group blogs, complaining that it wasn’t fair they’ve been excluded from the Top 50 SF/F Personal Blogs list, I’ve decided to whomp up another list, this one listing the top 15 or 20 (depending) SF/F News/Group blogs, which I will […]

Threepeat!

For the third year running, Athena’s gotten a creative writing award at the year end ceremonies for her school. Excellent. She’s the writer in the Scalzi household with the most writing awards; the only way for me to catch up is if I win the Prometheus and the Fan Writer Hugo this year. I suspect […]

SciFi Essentials + Soliciting Data for Update of Top 50 Personal SF/F Blogs List

First off, congratulations to Tobias Buckell, whose book Ragamuffin is this month’s SciFi Essential book. It’s a nice accolade to have, and in my experience it does drive sales, and driving sales is a good thing (it doesn’t hurt that Ragamuffin is a hella fun book, too). The book itself is slated for release on […]
