Issue Number : 36 - The Two Moons, Short Fiction On-line, New Novel, Web Site Nostalgia
THE TWO MOONS
The first volume of Baen Books' reissue of the first four novels in the "Giants" series is now out as an April title. Entitled The Two Moons, it contains the first two novels, Inherit the Stars and The Gentle Giants of Ganymede. As an introduction to the Giants series, we're making it available in the web site order catalog at a special-offer price of $5.00. Two novels, 595 pp. Not a bad deal at all.
A second volume is scheduled to follow, which will contain the third and fourth novels, Giants' Star and Entoverse. Details to be announced in due course.
SHORT FICTION ON-LINE
Four more short stories have been added to the collection of my short fiction offered online by Fictionwise:
"Silver Shoes for a Princess"
"The Tree of Dreams"
"Rules Within Rules"
Original publishing details are given on the Short Fiction page of the web site.
"Silver Shoes for a Princess" was later expanded to a series of four linked stories which were collected together in book form as Star Child. The three further stories are: "Silver Gods from the Sky", "Three Domes and a Tower", and "The Stillness Among the Stars." We have recently concluded an agreement with Fictionwise to add these to the online collection too, and they will be appearing in due course.
The contract has just been signed with Baen Books for a new novel entitled Moon Flower. (I seem to have a thing about moons in this newsletter.) The physics this time get's involved with John Cramer's "Transaction Interpretation" of Quantum Mechanics. A new page giving the usual background and summary information will be posted on the web site shortly.
WEB SITE NOSTALGIA
The original version of the web site was created by oldest son Alex when he was a 16-year-old high-schooler. It's hard to imagine that it could have been that long ago, for Alex got married last week and is currently celebrating in Antigua. Through the years we've adhered rigidly to the text-oriented, easy-to-navigate approach that he adopted, and have received many letters from visitors saying how much they appreciate the speed and convenience. Well-wishers can send him a line at Alex@AlexHogan.com.
Thanks again to all for your ongoing interest.
