Egomania Update

The pixel-stains on my virtual fingers were fading a bit, so I engaged in a bit of technopeasant wretchedness by updating my egomaniacal shrine to myself website. Most of the changes are to the stories page, where I shifted things around a bit and added a link to the preview for the latest Morlock story.

Actually, I did this to celebrate the arrival of Black Gate 10, which has been a long time coming, but worth the wait.

I’ve been reading and enjoying the stories, and will probably post later about them. In the “Letters” column there some kind words from readers about “Payment Deferred”.

    My issue of Black Gate arrived, and with it a fine story called “A Book of Silences.” I enjoyed it very much, James. Keep ’em coming, please.

  4. I read “A Book of Silences” today, my first story out of the issue. Fantastic little tale with a chilling idea and a surprisingly satisfying resolution.

    I also liked “Red Worm’s Way”, even though I’m not sure I really understood the ending…didn’t decrease the aforementioned enjoyment, though :).

    (BTW, any news on “The Singing Spear”? That was probably among my favorite Morlock tales, and it would be awesome to see in it print somewhere.)

    Anyway, keep ’em coming!

      I’m glad you liked them. “Red Worm’s Way” and “The Singing Spear” are the only stories I have so far from the nadir of Morlock’s life, and I’m still sorting things out: that may be why the end of “RWW” is a little weird. “Spear” got some kind words but a rejection from Eric Flint at Jim Baen’s Universe; it’s currently lingering at another magazine, waiting for a final decision by the editor. (Unless he made it and I missed/mislaid the reply. My bookkeeping isn’t very good these days.)

      Any new Shabak or Flinteye stories in the offing?
