  1. Burning Girls is also available on I’m keeping my eye out for the other stories.

  2. Wow! The Red: First Light is a Nebula Finalist? That’s amazing! Really loved that book!

      And a real win for self-publishing too!

      • Yes, with the caveat that Nagata has previously been published by “traditional” publishers and has previously won a Nebula Award. That is a bit different than if I wrote a novel, self published it, and hoped to possibly score an award nomination.

        I’m not saying it isn’t going to happen in the future, but I wouldn’t read too much into Nagata’s nomination. It’s a small shift of possibility, but not a big win of self publishing.

  3. Does Peter F. Hamilton ever get these things?

  4. I’ll have to take a closer look at Gannon’s FIRE WITH FIRE. The packaging and blurbs make it look like a pretty standard Baen space opera.

  5. Links are posted at Asimov’s.
