Science said it could not be, but there it was.
And whoosh—look out—here it is again!
“The Holes Around Mars” is a classic science fiction short story by Jerome Bixby.
Feeling thoughtful today as I make plans for new books and reflect on the fact that it’s DECEMBER already. Can you believe it? This year has been so full that time seems to have flown by at 2x speed.
Yet the future is bright where there are fun new stories to read and lovable old characters to meet again. So here’s what I’ve got planned for 2019.
This Friday, the third book in the Translocator Trilogy, The Ares Initiative, comes out, so I thought I’d give those of you who are excited about the upcoming release a chance to get started early with some snippets from the book.
I’ll post a chapter a day until Friday.

Stoked that I got to have Steve Statham on to talk about gods in science fiction. Steve’s a great guy and he writes a hell of a space opera.
Our conversation today was sparked because I read his book, Gods and the City. The topics we covered range from mythology to history to our obsession with gods in storytelling.
We also talk about the characters in Steve’s book—every day people who are called upon to defend humanity—and how they rose to the challenge.
What a fun conversation. A few great book recommendations for you in there, too. Hope you enjoy it.
