Happy Birthday, Bookbub!

No, wait, I got that wrong. It's Happy Birthday, Allysen! (It's my loving wife's forty-two-plus-somethingth birthday today. Yay!)

It's also the day of my first Bookbub promotion! Eternity's End is on sale for $.99, for one week only. At Kindle! At Nook! At Smashwords! This is the one that was a finalist for the Nebula Award: a big, sprawling star-rigger story, complete with space pirates, amphibious aliens, cyber-enhanced love, and cosmic wonders. Get it for less than a buck, for one week only. Heck, for that price, buy six and give it to your friends!

If you like the book, I sure would appreciate your posting a review to your favorite store or review site. Believe it or not, reviews matter!

After March 7, the price goes up.

And did I remember to say: Happy Birthday, Allysen!

Waves Hit Europe!

The weather we're getting here in New England seems pretty tame compared to some of what they got in Europe a few weeks ago. What's a little snow shoveling compared to this?

Click through to the source site to see a slide show of amazing waves that pounded Europe in January.

Which Is More Interesting: Space Elevators or Kate Upton in Zero Gee?

Too much snow, and other tiring distractions! Let's think about something else for a change. Which is the more compelling of two stories that came across my radar the other day, both from

The coming reality of space elevators?

Or the effect on supermodels of being photographed in skimpy swimsuits in zero gravity?*

You decide! (For what it's worth, I like both of them.)

*You can see more photos in the series at Watch Kate get launched through the airplane by the photo crew!
