I take the Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe

Tor.com has been running entertaining interviews with authors in their Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe series, and their latest is with me, in which I discuss haunting Alfred Bester, casting Ragnarok and Roll, what five things I'd bring to a desert island, and a whole lot less....

An excerpt:
What was your gateway to SF/Fantasy, as a child or young adult?

My parents fed me a steady diet of J.R.R. Tolkien (The Hobbit), Ursula K. Le Guin (the Earthsea trilogy), Robert A. Heinlein (his juveniles), and P.G. Wodehouse (the Jeeves stories and novels), which explains my love of SF/fantasy and silly British humor (not to mention my pretentious insistence on using both middle initials...).

"Cayo Hueso" Part 2: "The Buck Stops Here" on the Kindle and Nook for only $.99

If you want to preview Ragnarok and Roll: Tales of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet, we're making the three-part "Cayo Hueso" storyline available in three parts for $.99 each.

Out this week: Part 2: "The Buck Stops Here." Cassie's parents meet 1812, Bobbi asks Cassie to do something incredibly awkward, and the ghost of Harry S Truman invites everyone to play a game of poker. It's available for the Kindle or Nook.

Part 1: "A Farewell to Cats" is also available for a penny less than a buck for your Kindle or Nook, and Part 3: "Twisting Fate" will be available next week.

Or, of course, you can get the whole collection in trade (Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indie Bound) or eBook (Kindle | Nook).

And hey, don't forget, I'm doing a signing and reading at Singularity & Co. in Brooklyn tonight at 7pm!
