Very happy to announce that I've sold my novella "The Clock King And The Queen Of The Hourglass" to the PS Publishing novella line, to be released some time in late 2004 or early 2005, in a signed limited edition of 700-800 copies.
Here's a URL for PS Publishing:

In unrelated news, my copy of LORDS OF RAINBOW came in yesterday, so I'll be digging into that within the week.

Jay, doesn't this put Vera on your list?
BTW, congrats! That's more than cool.

Oh, well and truly on my list. Yeah, well and truly.

Thanks, Jay! I have been very impressed with PS Publishing from the start, and am indeed honored to be one of their authors.
John, thanks, but a list? *gulp* Sounds ominously cryptic! ;-)

As a fellow Night Shade boarder and PS author, congrats! About the novella of course. Jay's list I know nothing about.

Way-belated thanks, Robert! :-)
Okay, I just read Charles de Lint's Introduction to my novella THE CLOCK KING AND THE QUEEN OF THE HOURGLASS, and here is an awesome snippet from it that hopefully falls under fair use...
". . . This is science fiction the way that Jack Vance's Dying Earth books are science fiction. There is believable scientific extrapolation (or at least it's believable within the context of the story -- I'm no expert when it comes to the hard sciences), but it's couched in poetic terms. Nazarian isn't excessively concerned with the nuts-and-bolts of her future world, for all her attention to detail and explanation of how things work. She wants to give us the vision, the eerie feel of the situation. She wants us to experience
the red light of the swollen sun, the dry dust of the streets, the strange mechanics of the ancient machineries that allow life in this desolate world. And she wants us to know her characters as real people.
And she succeeds, admirably, on all counts."
-- Charles de Lint
