Random Stuff About Ty

12.21.11
by Ty Franck

Here I am interviewed by the center of the writing universe (seriously, this woman knows everyone) Emily Mah.  I mostly natter on about nonsense, but there’s a lovely picture of Jen Taylor, famous video game voice and TV/Movie actress, hugging on me.  So it’s worth checking out just for that.

Ignite New Mexico: Adapting Game of Thrones

12.16.11
by Daniel Abraham

So a little while back, my buddy Cameron told me about this gig he’s part of here in Albuquerque called Ignite New Mexico.  Every so often folks get together and spend an evening doing presentations to one another.  The talks are five minutes long (no longer) on the theory that even if the talk sucks, something else interesting will be along in a minute.  I was in the first part of the Game of Thrones comic book adaptation, and so […]

Concerning the Charitable Assumption of Madness

by Daniel Abraham

I choose not to believe in free will as a courtesy to my friends — Walter Jon Williams I’ve had a few conversations in the past few days about men behaving badly.  One was a conversation about Frank Miller’s opinion of the Occupy movement.  Another was a private post about sexual harassment at conventions.  Another was an exhumation of an infamous incident involving a famous science fiction author and editor that no one would benefit by being too specific about. […]

SF Signal Article

I saw you tonight. You were walking with your cabal from the university to the little bar across the street where the professors and graduate students fraternize. You were in the dark, plain clothes that you think of as elegant. I have always thought they made you look pale. I was at the newsstand. I think that you saw me, but pretended not to. I want to say it didn’t sting.   God, sometimes I amuse myself. I have a […]

Daniel’s Virtue Remains Intact

Stephen King won the best SF category of the Goodreads awards. Losing to Stephen King is not embarrassing, I must admit.  We got almost 900 votes, and came in ahead of some other excellent books.  Not a bad showing, and we’re grateful to every single person that voted. And, to his great relief, Daniel doesn’t have to pose nude now.   Unless he just wants to, I guess.

One and a call it five/sixths appearances by Daniel Abraham

If you’re in Albuquerque tomorrow, chances are that I’ll be part of a signing at Page One at 1:30.  I say chances are because we had our mini version of the apocalyptic windstorm yesterday, and it might snow today.  If you’ve ever been to central New Mexico, you’ll understand that snow is viewed as a strange alien substance to be treated with extreme caution in case it explodes.  So it’s quite likely that I’ll be at Page One at 1:30.

L. A. Noire: The Soft-Boiled Detective

11.29.11
by Daniel Abraham

It’s been a couple months since I finished playing through LA Noire, but as I dig it out of the pile and take it over to Ty that he may undermine his productivity for a change, I find myself thinking back on it with real fondness and no particular desire to return.  There aren’t a lot of things that inspire this kind in instant nostalgia in me. It was my first Rockstar game.  I am assured by those who know […]

Last Days

Not before the apocalypse or anything, but if you are interested in either voting for Leviathan Wakes in the Goodreads Choice Awards or shaving off my wife’s eyebrows (her hair is already slated for destruction), it’s now, baby, or never.
