Isaac Asimov and I have one thing in common. Aside from the SF writer thing! We are late adopters. It is said of the late great Asimov that he never rode in airplanes; anyplace he could not get to by train or bus was a place he didn’t go, even though he wrote with aplomb about interstellar space travel and jaunts through dimensions and time.
I am sorry to report that I do not have an ebook reader. And how many epublications do I have out? It’s embarrassing. My cell phone is an ancient candy-bar style, and I only turn it on about once a week. (It exists solely for emergencies; only the optimistic or the ignorant text or leave me a phone message.)
This is a problem easily resolved: with money. I will buy an ebook reader. But which one? Word on the street is that the Ipad 3 is coming out, and having taken my niece’s Ipads out for a spin I am powerfully tempted. We behind-the-curve people need user-friendly devices. Advise me, oh you denizens of technology!
My newest novel Speak to Our Desires is out exclusively from Book View Press.
I also have stories in Book View Cafe’s two steampunk anthologies, The Shadow Conspiracy and The Shadow Conspiracy II, as well as in BVC’s many other anthologies.
