La Rebelión

Here's something I'm happy to see. It's my most recent foreign publication - The Risen in Spanish! 

La Rebelión

I rather like that. Spartacus, in this version, is Espartaco. I rather like that, too.

Here's the copy text:

El nuevo libro del autor del best seller El orgullo de Cartago. Una novela soberbia sobre Espartaco, el legendario gladiador, y la revuelta de esclavos que encabezó y a punto estuvo de someter a Roma y sus invencibles legiones.
En esta emocionante novela histórica somos testigos de la rebelión más famosa de la historia desde diversos, y a veces opuestos, puntos de vista, entre ellos el del propio Espartaco, el visionario cautivo y gladiador cuya constancia y carisma convierten la fuga de una prisión en una rebelión multicultural que amenaza a un imperio; el de la profética Astera, cuyo contacto con el mundo de los espíritus y sus augurios guía el desarrollo de la rebelión; el de Nonus, un soldado romano que se mueve a ambos lados del conflicto en un intento, en parte desesperado, de salvar la vida; el de Laelia y Hustus, dos niños pastores incorporados a las tropas de la rebelión de los esclavos, y el de Kaleb, el esclavo al servicio de Craso, el senador romano y comandante que carga con la poco envidiable tarea de aplastar una insurrección de meros esclavos, todo ello en un entorno de violencia, heroísmo y traición.
Lo que está en juego con la rebelión de Espartaco es nada menos que el futuro del mundo antiguo. Nadie aporta más brío, inteligencia y frescura a la novela sobre la época clásica que David Anthony Durham.
Sounds good, huh?

Wild Times

I'm back home after an awesome Wild Cards reunion in Santa Fe. Highlights include hanging with a bunch of authors, staying at GRRM's guest house, a big panel event, followed by a big signing event, visiting sets used in Western movies, stopping in to watch filming of a movie, meeting Vincent D'Onofrio and Ethan Hawke, meeting the lovely Marisa Xochtl Jimenez of the Stagecoach Foundation, watching Sage (my 16 year old son) network with authors, actors, directors and producers. He's got skills. Also, the last night's bash at Meow Wolf, where this photo was taken!

Love this. My daughter's commissioned artwork in the opening pages of a Japanese knitting magazine. Japan! She's an international artist, apparently.

Wild Cards Mass Signing

Here's a cool thing:

"Jean Cocteau Cinema Celebrates the WILD CARD ANNIVERSARY by hosting  a special multi-author book signing with the authors of Wild Cards, an epic science fiction anthology about super heroes and powerful villains (edited by George R.R. Martin)."

That includes me!

Here's the announcement on the Jean Cocteau website.

And here's George's post on his Not a Blog.

It'll be a good time. My son, Sage, is going with me. I'll get to watch him network. ;-)

Another Uprising

Oh, right. There's a book of mine coming out in paperback, like, soon. April 18th, actually! The Risen! I just got a box of books today. I rather like the way they look. 

Also, it's nice for this Book Reporter mention to pop up. I'm on there, though you have to scroll down a bit to get to the listing.

UNR MFA and Me!

I'm super pleased to be able to announce that I've accepted a position in the MFA Program at the University of Nevada, Reno. This has been months in the making, with all the many stages of the search process. It took time. Interviews. Visits. But it was all worth it. I really liked everyone I met in the English Department. I had a great visit to Reno and love the location, tucked up against the Sierra Nevada mountain range. That's a terrific thing.

And... this a program that's open to genre writers! Sci-Fi. Fantasy. Horror. Crime. Young Adult. You name it. I'm so looking forward to joining the program and helping it to grow.

Looking for a traditional MFA program that's forward-looking? Look no further.

Check out the program HERE.

If you're interested in the program feel free to drop me an email. Let's chat.

Let Tor.com Guide You Through the Wild Cards World

Ever thought about trying George RR Martin's Wild Cards series of collaborative novels, but maybe didn't know where to begin? That's understandable. How about joining the folks at Tor.com who are doing a reread of the entire series? Each book presented and discussed in a lively comments thread. Could be fun, and if the TV series happens you'll be ahead of the curve and in the know.

Check it out HERE.
