Story Collection

Last week Small Beer Press published my most recent collection of stories, FOUNTAIN OF AGE AND OTHER STORIES.  The collection includes a few award winners (the title story won a Nebula and "The Erdmann Nexus" a Hugo), as well as seven other stories.  My own favorite is one that hardly anybody else liked: "The Kindness of Strangers."  Sometimes an author's taste doesn't jibe with readers' preferences.

If I had my choice, I would write only short stories and novellas.  They are my favorite form.  However, novels are what pay the bills -- the facts of life in publishing.  At any rate, the book is available in trade paper and e-book formats.  So far, reviews are good.

AND the publisher sent me a box of chocolates to celebrate pub day!
