Working Day


No significant blog post today. I’m elbow-deep in work on Stupefying Stories 24, which is still on-track for release on January 1, 2022, and am trying to shut out all other distractions. 

One particularly tempting distraction lately has been the new FB group, Cyberpunk Books, which as you may have guessed from the name is about print fiction, not anime, gaming, movies, or whatever else falls into the catchall bin labeled cyberpunk. It’s a public group (for now), so if you want to talk seriously about the genre, it’s worth checking out. The folks over there have been asking me lots of good questions, so my answers to some of those questions will be emerging in future “Ask Dr. Cyberpunk” columns and perhaps even in Cyberpunk and Cyberpunk Revisited, when I get back to working on it.

In the meantime, while I’m working on Stupefying Stories 24, do me a favor and at least think about buying a copy of Stupefying Stories 23, wouldja? Or if not that, buy a copy of THE LOST PLANET. Now available in hardcover, THE LOST PLANET makes a great Christmas gift for that bright young reader you’re trying to encourage to put down their cell phone and try reading a book for a change.

Seasons Greetings to all the Stupefying family & larger world from Daley Towers. I am pleased to report I've had my booster jab today, and am currently doing some tech set-up in readiness for a free Clarion West Workshop in the next few days.

Creative output is winding down in Satan's Workshop (no, not a typo - I sold what soul I had left after my military service to become a better writer) and I'm awaiting the arrival of my last 2 publications for 2021.

I hope everyone is well and looking forward to [REDACTED].

May the festive fish of Winterval shine upon you.
