Good morning, one and all. A new podcast with Gary K Wolfe should be out this morning. We recorded yesterday and I’ll get it uploaded after breakfast, with a little luck.  I also was going to post here about the whole idea of no arguing with a book when writing a book review. I intend to do that, but we’ll see. Looking back over the period since I got back from my holidays I realise I’ve not been all that productive, editorially speaking.  My day job is definitely demanding more attention, so too the family, which means my mind is pretty much scattered for reading and the like. I’ve spent a lot of time either watching TV, doing family stuff, or just sort of letting time pass without commenting on it. Trying to get myself together, though. Lots to do this coming month, and no real excuse for not getting it done (also some nasty consequences if I don’t).

I have, as you know, been podcasting. I’m enjoying it. It’s fun and it seems to involve the least amount of preparation of any of the things I’m doing right now, so more of that. There are also a bunch of books I want to read, though I can’t seem to summon up the concentration for that lately. Hmm. Maybe I do need to go and get my prescription looked at.

  1. Hi Jonathan,

    Is it too early to be enquiring about the toc for Eclipse 4?

    Also, I saw Engineering Infinity is up on Amazon for December 2010, I’d be interested in a TOC for that as well.



  2. Hi John – Thank you for your interest. I’m delighted you’re so eager, but it really is very early to enquire about either book. I have *most* but not all of the table of contents ready for ENGINEERING INFINITY. I’m waiting on two or three stories and don’t expect to deliver that till the end of June, so I’d say early July would be when you could start looking for a table of contents for that, though even then I may not be quite there. Amazon, btw, is wrong on several points. It’s a January 2011 book and there’s no Greg Bear story in the book (unfortunately). It’s also far too early to enquire about Eclipse Four. The book has been re-scheduled to May 2011, so I won’t even close to submissions till Christmas. I’d start looking for a ToC for that one in January. I’ll definitely post the info for both as soon as I can, but sadly not yet. Best, Jonathan
