SCI-FICTION TO PUBLISH “SHADOW TWIN”
May 30, 2004
Just a heads up. A new, never-before-published novella, “Shadow Twin,” will be coming out in June on the internet, at SCI-FICTION. “Shadow Twin” is a three-way collaboration between me, Gardner R. Dozois, and Daniel Abraham, a long SF story set on a distant planet about one Ramon Espejo and his encounter with… well, that would be telling. You’ll need to read the story. Ellen Datlow will be presenting it in three parts, on June 9, 16, and 23.
I don’t do many collaborations these days, it’s true, but Gardner was the very first person I ever met when I walked into my first SF con (Disclave in 1971) and Daniel was one of my students at Clarion West a few years back, and the two of them are among the finest writers in the field. It was a joy and a priviledge to be able to work with them.
And before the hardcore among you start writing me furious emails about “How dare you write something else when you haven’t finished A FEAST FOR CROWS yet,” let me assure you that my part of “Shadow Twin” was largely written before I began A GAME OF THRONES. Sometimes we run into these little… ahem… delays in the writing game…
I’m thrilled with the way that “Shadow Twin” turned out, however, and I hope you’ll be as well. Those of you who like SF as well as fantasy, check it out at SCI-FICTION.
