Catching up on the things that need catching up on: * For those of you wondering how The Human Division is going, it’s moving along very nicely, thank you.

Aggressively Not Answering E-Mail at the Moment

If you’ve tried e-mailing me in the last few weeks, you’ll note that I have an automatic reply up saying that responses would be delayed at best (and possibly non-existent) because I’m hard up on a deadline. This is a quick note to: a) Reiterate this point — I am really not engaged in my […]

And Now the Cover to the New Chinese Edition of Old Man’s War

It’s, uh, colorful.  The title is also changed: Now it’s something along the lines of “Enemies From 12 Planets,” which makes me want to go back and count how many planets I have people in the book land on. I can’t wait to get my author copies of this version. You can order your own […]
