Across the pond

Written By: catherinewells | Categorized In: Book news, Theater and plays | Comments: 0

I’ve been contacted by a reporter from across the pond who wants to republish my essay “Who Was the Real Macbeth?” which appeared on Sarah Johnson’s blog “Reading the Past.” It’s in connection with a dramatic production “The Trial of Macbeth” that’s going up in London next month with a celebrity cast. Whoo-hee! Free publicity!

“Beyond the Gates” sequel

Written By: catherinewells | Categorized In: Book news, Short Stories, Speculative Fiction | Comments: 0

For those of you who’ve been waiting (a decade and a half) for a sequel to “Beyond the Gates,” I just received an offer from Analog for my novella “Builders of the Leaf Houses.”  (No pub date yet.)  It contains the further adventures of Marta and Shipner and a look at Drayan culture through the eyes of Motherlove.  I was so inspired by the offer, I’ve sent out two more short stories in the past two days!

Coming Soon: “Macbeatha”

Written By: catherinewells | Categorized In: Book news, Theater and plays | Comments: 0

By the end of the month (September) you should be able to purchase ebook or trade paperback versions of “Macbeatha” from Desert Moon Press.  If you’ve read “Stones of Destiny,” it’s the same book but with better editorial control and FABULOUS new artwork.  The big difference, of course, is its availability in ebook formats of several stripes.  You can pre-order it through Smashwords at $2.99.  If you’re a fan of Celtic culture, or Shakespeare, read on Macduff!  (Okay, that’s a groaner.)  And if you want to know just how twisted history can get when conquerors write their own version of history…  Scholars now agree that Macbeth was actually a fairly good king who ruled in peace and prosperity for most of his 17-year reign.  At a time when most Scottish high kings didn’t last more than 5 or 6 years before being killed by a rival.

“Wastelands” audiobook now available

Written By: catherinewells | Categorized In: Book news, Short Stories | Comments: 0

Hi, gang!  Just heard from editor John Joseph Adams that the anthology “Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse” is now available in several formats here.  It includes my short story “Artie’s Angels,” set in a dystopian future with young Arthurian characters on bicycles.  (No, no jousting, although I was sorely tempted.) And if audio isn’t your thing, the mass market paperback edition should be available in early 2015.

And speaking of 2015…someone just pointed out to me that” Back to the Future 2″ took place in 2015.  Yikes!
