    Like I said I was going to in the What Are You Reading thread, I started listening to the Grachip Audio version of @Christopher L. Bennett's Only Superhuman this morning. I'm a little over half an hour into it and so far I'm really enjoying it.

    A blog named Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action, the Writing Blog of Sean Taylor, is running a series of interviews with eSpec Books authors, and mine was posted today:

    I talk about Star Trek: Living Memory and the Arachne duology, and also drop some hints about “the new project I can’t talk about,” which was actually Tangent Knights, since the interview was conducted before that project got announced.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Sadly, Amazon's algorithm-driven listings are a bit of a mess and there's little that I can do about it!

    I have to admit, as a mermaid fan, I find this one a bit intriguing, but I don't know if it's worth going to the theater for, so I'll probably just wait for it to come to one of the streaming services.

    I loved Blish’s MORE LIGHT, where he actually fleshed out “ The King in Yellow.”

    The folks at GraphicAudio just let me know that Tangent Knights 1: Caprice of Fate has just won the AudioFile Earphones Award! Their review is here:

    https://www.audiofilemagazine.com/reviews/read/203852/

    An excerpt: “Talented GraphicAudio narrators imbue believability by creating accents for the polyglot characters of futuristic New Avalon… This is an aural treat for sci-fi fans everywhere.”

    According to AudioFile’s Earphones Awards page, “The award is given by AudioFile to truly exceptional titles that excel in narrative voice and style, characterizations, suitability to audio, and enhancement of the text.” That’s quite an honor.

    Phenomenons: Every Human Creature is now available for preorder from Crazy 8 Press. A nifty new shared-world superhero universe created by longtime Star Trek novelist Michael Jan Friedman, and featuring a mess of other Trek prose stylists:
    • Ilsa J. Bick
    • Peter David
    • Keith R.A. DeCandido
    • Robert Greenberger
    • Glenn Hauman
    • Paul Kupperberg
    • Aaron Rosenberg
    • Geoffrey Thorne
    In addition, there are stories by Michael A. Burstein, Russ Colchamiro & Hildy Silverman, Mary Fan, Dan Hernandez, Heather E. Hutsell, Ron Marz, and Marie Vibbert.

    This is a great superhero universe not quite like anything you've seen before, so if you want to learn more about Black Hat, Colosa & Particula, the Grey Guardsman, Lipstick Lilly, Luminosity, null, Professor Paracelsus, the Ramblers, Sarcastic Fringehead, Syntax, Torque, Zig Zag, and lots more, check out the anthology!

    Reading it now (backed it on Kickstarter). Good stuff! Strong Wild Cards vibe, at least for now (and it's a good thing as far as I'm concerned).

    It is now.

    Thanks! Speaking as one of the contributors, I'm honored to be part of this, and it was especially fun to coordinate my story with Ms. Fan and Mr. Burstein......

    @KRAD I love your Precinct books, do you have a new Precinct book in your planning?

    Yes, Phoenix Precinct is on the docket to be written this year, and hopefully released either in late 2022 or early 2023. (It would've been written sooner, but there was an apocalypse.....)
