Two Reviews and a Contest

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Before we leave September behind, I wanted to link to two online reviews of The Last Good Man.

Locus is a trade magazine focused on science fiction and fantasy and has been in print for decades. Issues include publishing news, interviews, and reviews. In the September issue — both print and online — Russell Letson reviews The Last Good Man:

Nagata has devised a thinking-reader’s future-military scenario, a highly qualified adventure in which every thrill comes with a realization of what it costs, what it says about the world that enables it, what it means to fight and kill and face death.

Read the full review here.

And at “Nerds of a Feather” (got to love that name), Joe Sherry has posted a mini-review, saying “Nagata’s near future military sci-fi is as good as it gets.” Read the mini-review here.

The Contest
During 2017 I’ve participated in a few promotions run by Sci-Fi Bridge, an author-created group seeking to mutually expand our reader base. Sci-Fi Bridge is sponsoring one more contest that I want to share with you. Sign up for the Sci-Fi Bridge newsletter (and separate author newsletters if you choose to) during the fall giveaway, and be entered to win collections of signed print books among other things.

6-Books Interview

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together is a fanzine that includes reviews of science fiction, fantasy, crime, and horror fiction, plus film and video game reviews. They also run some special features, with the most recent being the “6 Books” interview. Writers are asked six questions about the books they’re reading, will read, or wrote.

So far the series has included James Cambias, Django Wexler, and me.

So check it out! It’s a great way to find new books. I know, because I read the interviews and immediately downloaded a sample of Cambias’s new novel Corsair. Looks intriguing!

Here’s a link to all three interviews. Let me know what you think.
