This is a first for me, and I’m so excited I can hardly see straight: Boneshaker has made it to PW’s best-of 2009 list! Just click the link and scroll down to the “Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror” section to find it, right there next to China Miéville — a position which made me do hand-flappies of glee.
By way of a general update, things have been going quite well for Boneshaker. Last I heard it was already in a third printing (in less than a month), and sales seem to be holding steady; so here’s hoping that these tidings bode well for yet more books in The Clockwork Century!* Heaven knows I have no shortage of ideas on the subject.
In other news, if you’re local to the Seattle area — or if you’ll be passing through on the fourth of November — please come out and join me with Jeff VanderMeer and Cat Rambo at the University Book Store, on the University of Washington campus. We’ll be there reading and signing from our respective works, talking about steampunk and other varieties of speculative fiction, and generally raising a ruckus starting at 7:00 p.m.
And that’s just about all the news I’ve got for now. Thanks for reading!
* Beyond the two upcoming, Dreadnought and Clementine, available next year.
