random things

So, I've been away for a while and I will be busy learning EMT and Nursing for the rest of the year, but I've started to catch up on stuff that I missed while at BMT. 

Much of this is probably old news, but it's stuff that interested me enough that I wanted to make note of it. 

Jeff VanderMeer interviews Johanna Sinisalo.  You may remember Sinisalo from her Nebula Award nominated story "Baby Doll".

Two posts on Bordertown.  There's a new collection forthcoming.  I need to figure out if I want to try to read the back catalog first, or dive into this one. 

There will be a sequel to next month's new Wild Cards novel (Fort Freak).  The new one is tenatively titled Lowball.  I heart Wild Cards.

Speaking of Fort Freak, it has a cover.

Some guy named George finished a book.  Whatever. 

That same guy named George talked to another guy named Joe.  Shrug.

If you like Daniel Keys Moran (and you should), you'll be happy to know that his backlist and the brand freaking new AI War are available as e-books

David McCullough has a new book coming out.

The new Stover novel is due for publication February 2012.  It's undergone a name change

Oh, very central to my interests - the Hugo nominations are out!  I'll post more on this later, but let me give a belated woo to Mary Robinette Kowal, Carrie Vaughn, Nora Jemisin, Rachel Swirsky, and Aliette de Bodard.  Awesomeness gets recognized, y'all.  I will mention that several of these matched my ballot.  Just saying, I've got good taste. 

Genevieve Valentine's debut novel Mechanique is out.  I'm freaking excited to read this as soon as I possibly can.  Not sure when that'll be whilst in school and on an Army post, but it will happen.  Otherwise, there's a nice review over at the AV Book Club.

I'm sure I'm completely overlooking something, but that's the awesome I could remember.  Go read Mechanique now.  Go.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Daniel Keys Moran is one of my absolute favorite authors and I had despaired over never seeing another chapter of the Continuing Time. Ebook ready and available now? With a brand spanking new book? This is the best day EVER.
Thank you!

Mechanique is magnificent. That is all.
