Interview With The Artist — Christian Renee Bressler

As I sit at my table, talking to people looking at my books, people often ask about the artists.  “Who did that cover?”  In this and a few other interviews, I’m hoping to answer that question. Christian Renee Bressler was

Managing Events I Want to Attend

I wish I could be able to sign up for all the events for the upcoming year at one time and be done with it.  Unfortunately, every event has their own way of doing things and their own schedule.  Some

Back in Star Time, I planted a few seeds that meant little or nothing to that story, but provided the framework for this one. In one, the Australian scientist that was interested in genetic engineering, after a hundred years, has

My Favorite Book: Tales of the U’tanse
