The Shout Out Thread

I would like to promote some of my writer friend’s recent publications and acceptances, but there are so many of them that I worry about forgetting many things. Given the amount of brain space work is taking up these days, that’s almost a guarantee.

It is my hope that if I BEG my writer friends, they will be happy to comment about their latest and/or upcoming releases, either here, at Dreamscape, or at Live Journal, and I can edit them into this thread. Heck, even if you feel like reminding people about something you’ve got out there that needs a little love, go for it.

So, guys, tell these nice people where they can read your work. And don’t be shy. I did ask you.



And here are the authors! YES!

Naomi Clark: I’m in the middle of release panic as my second Urban Wolf book, DARK HUNT, came out this week! If people like queer fiction, werewolves, and Paris, they might like this 🙂 All the info is at my blog.

George Galuschak: My short story, “Middle Aged Weirdo in a Cadillac,” is still available at Podcastle. It’s read by Norm Sherman, who does a great job!

Jon Gibbs: My debut novel, Fur-Face (Echelon Press, 2010), is scheduled for paperback release this month. I heard from the publisher yesterday that it’ll be available at within the next week.

Chang Terhune: Some of my work can be found on my site where much fine dining, whining, droning and writing occurs.

Shveta Thakrar: For my part, a bunch of awesome writers and I have stories coming out in Steam-Powered 2: More Lesbian Steampunk Stories, due to release next week on the twenty-sixth. Anyone who’s interested in finding out more can contact the editrix, JoSelle Vanderhooft.

Martha Wells: Most recent for me is fantasy novel THE CLOUD ROADS, which came out from Night Shade last March. The second book in the series, THE SERPENT SEA, will be out in January.

Kurt Wilcken: A project I was working on last year has finally seen daylight: A children’s book entitled “Trouble on Earth Day” by a writer and teacher named Kathy Stemke, which I illustrated.

As for writing, I’ve been doing a lot off blogging about Science Fiction and Fantasy novels on the Daily Kos website. I’ve just started a discussion of Roger Zelazny’s “Lord of Light”.

And I would indeed be remiss if I did not plug my webcomic, HANNIBAL TESLA ADVENTURE MAGAZINE, a pulp-era adventure about a two-fisted scientist in the Doc Savage mold. I’ve recently started a storyline about how Ginger DuPree, gutsy girl reporter, encountered the “CAT-MEN from MARS!”

Author: Catherine Schaff-Stump

Catherine Schaff-Stump writes fiction for children and young adults. Her most recent book, The Vessel of Ra, is the first book in the Klaereon Scroll series. She is currently working on its sequel, as well as penning the middle grade adventures of Abigail Rath, monster hunter.
