Third Flatiron’s LOST WORLDS, RETRACED is now out in Kindle edition and available for $2.99 here). This anthology contains my story “Gods and Emperors” that explores the concept of lowercase “g” gods in a far-futuristic society with preter-human beings. The same character who is working through the divinity questions — Ydaire — is also currently visiting England as the protagonist of my 140,000-word manuscript SIREN’S CALL that I just sent over to Tor-UK for consideration. The Tor editors promise a decision within 12 weeks, which is lightning-fast for novels. One fervently hopes that it is not only a fast decision, but also a favorable one.
