The Return of Gabriel Hunt

Guess who’s back? Back again?

New Hunt

My author’s copies of the new re-release of Hunt at World’s End, courtesy of Titan Books, arrived this weekend! (Click on the picture to embiggen.) Long-time readers know how proud I was to be part of this project, a six-volume series about two-fisted adventurer Gabriel Hunt under the stewardship of Hard Case Crime’s Charles Ardai. Each standalone novel was written by a different author, and the lineup was pretty damn impressive: James Reasoner, Ardai, Christa Faust, David J. Schow, Raymond Benson, and myself. Back in 2009, this was actually my first published novel, and my name wasn’t even on the cover! Dorchester, the original publisher, published them all with only the “house name” Gabriel Hunt on the cover. I’m delighted to see Titan Books has chosen to give the authors their full due this time around and put our names on the covers for all to see.

Shortly after the original books were published, Dorchester folded and the series remained in limbo for years, until Titan Books rescued them. I’m so happy the Gabriel Hunt novels are coming back into print. So happy, in fact, that I’m giving away a copy!

From now until May 27, the official publication date of Hunt at World’s End‘s re-release, I’m running a giveaway over at Goodreads for one signed copy of this pulse-pounding adventure that Booklist called “The very best pulp style…a must read.” Want a copy? Enter the Goodreads giveaway today!

Of course this is a day for these thoughts

Maybe you could stop zombies with weed.

GETTING pot to zombies might be a problem, and I haven't solved that, though maybe getting a good cloud going between you and the zombies might work, but there's the whole "how do you get any zombie, even Bub, to figure out how to roll 'em" thing, but still...

a) marijuana might distract zombies,
b) marijuana would probably mellow out zombies,
c) zombies probably wouldn't mind if they caught on fire.

...but then the munchies would happen. And we're RIGHT BACK when we started. Crap.

And since I don't smoke weed, I'd still be dead. No zombie-fighting skills. :-/

Sunday catch-up

I think I friended everyone now.

Here's a good pic and story of my grandfather, from my cousin's partner's Facebook:

Sorry I missed most of you at Norwescon. Between obligations, I mostly just retreated to my room.

In good Norwescon news, Toh EnJoe won the Philip K. Dick Special Citation for Self-Reference ENGINE. See?

If you have any interest at all in SF that is simultaneously hard and Phildickean, get this book.

Second Nature Wilderness Programs

My teenage son has a friend of a friend living in Boston who is beginning the male to female transition. When his parents found out about the transition, they quickly drove him down to Georgia to enroll him in the Second Nature Wilderness Program. They are in a hotel in Georgia right now, and he will be processed in tomorrow morning. Gabe is 16 years old.

Does Gabe have any rights to refuse treatment? Does he have any options? We would certainly open our home to him if it was that simple.

Cranky old fan

I am so old and out of touch that most of the names on the Hugo ballot mean nothing to me, but it's about time Steve Stiles (last of the paper fanzine people) got the Fan Artist award, and I'm rooting for Noah Ward vis-à-vis Opera Vita Aeterna and series almost Aeterna.
