The Clockwork Jungle book is out!

...Or at least, it's available for order in print, or immediate electronic gratification, though the last news message still says coming soon.

Besides my story*, The Mechanical Aviary of Emperor Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Akbar**, this book has stories by mrissa, scriitor (with illustration by me), gwynnega, tithenai, and (as a bookend!) astrobolism! Er, and Jay Lake :) And some people I don't know but know from the blurbs will be lots of fun to read!

(ObPlug: there is an interview with me here. Though, of course, you already know me.)

Squeeee! I know this book will rock, and I've been looking forward to it so much!

In other news entirely, the nephew is even cuter in person. Also, I am tired. These things are not unrelated.

* This is my first Artificer Bird story. The second (though chronologically earlier; so far I've been working backwards) is forthcoming in Realms of Fantasy and has that awesome Steph Pui-min Law illustration).

** I win longest title :)

thought for the day
