I’ve made the following sales in the past couple of months: “Liaisons Galantes: A Scientific Romance” (reprint) to ebook anthology The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Year Five; “Goat Eyes” to Black Static #42; “Mammals” to Analog; “Malf” to Mission: Tomorrow; and “Damage” to tor.com.
I will be the Fan Guest of Honor at Westercon 69, to be held in Portland, Oregon on the Fourth of July weekend in 2016.
I am now represented by Paul Lucas of Janklow & Nesbit Associates; anthology HELP FUND MY ROBOT ARMY!!! and Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects, including a story by me, is now on sale; anthology Old Mars, including my story “The Wreck of the Mars Adventure,” has won the Locus Award for Best Anthology; “The Wreck of the Mars Adventure” itself came in 17th for Best Novelette; and my story “Tk’Tk’Tk” was included in the curriculum of a class that used SF podcasts to teach Business and Economics.
My Hugo-winning short story “Tk’Tk’Tk” has been adapted into a short play, which will be presented as part of an evening of “Brave New Sci-Fi” at the Jack London Bar in Portland, Oregon on April 24! See http://thepulpstage.weebly.com for more details.
I have already received galleys for “The End of the Silk Road,” which was just accepted at F&SF two weeks ago, and it will probably be published in the very next issue (May/June 2014)! Sometimes publishing does move fast.
Analog has reviewed Old Mars and has this to say: “The stories are without exception engaging and full of the old sense-of-wonder. It’s hard to pick standouts in this crowd, but be sure not to miss David D. Levine’s ‘The Wreck of the Mars Adventure,’ a tale of Captain Kidd’s 17th century expedition to Mars….”
Lois Tilton of Locus Online calls out my “The Wreck of the Mars Adventure” in her year-end summary!
Here’s Lois Tilton at Locus Online‘s review of my story “The Wreck of the Mars Adventure” in anthology Old Mars: “This is indeed high adventure, a cracking good sailing yarn with skiffy values. I love the imaginative audacity of the premise. The author’s version of Mars is also remarkable. Highly entertaining. RECOMMENDED.”
