And finally, we would like to apologize for the skyrocketing prices of the
British books we import. The dollar is currently quite weak against
the pound, which has caused most of our British books to jump in price by
$1.00 or more in the past year. We are sincerely sorry about this.
Jack Cady, Life and Memories, by Jeremy Lassen
Jack Cady died on January 14th. He was 71. On that
day, the Sf/fantasy/horror community lost one of its great writers.
As is usually the case with great writers, the genre paid him little attention
during his lifetime. Likewise, he had little time for the genre.
He was too busy living and writing. He spent a career writing damn
good stories and novels, without regard for marketing categories and genre
boundaries. While writing these stories and novels, he worked a variety
of blue collar jobs. In his own words, from a 2001 bio-blurb:
"...I was raised in the auction business, went to the Coast Guard in Maine
for four years, got a bachelor's from Univ. of Louisville, worked for Social
Security for awhile, got sick of it, then drove trucks through the southeast.
My first novel (though not the first published one) was rough drafted on
an old Royal typewriter that sat on the seat of a 750 Ford. From the southeast
I went to Boston where I worked for a tree company, then to San Francisco
where I was foreman for a landscaping outfit. By then I had won an Atlantic
First award and made a couple of sales to John Palmer at Yale Review. That
was enough to get me hired at University of Washington where I taught writing
for 5 years, then got fed up. I went to Knox College in Illinois for a year,
then to Clarion College in Pennsylvania, then came back to Port Townsend
and ran a little landscape construction outfit. Then I went to Sitka for
a year, then came home. Finally ended up at Pacific Lutheran University where
I spent 13 happy years before retirement. After much doings with a series
of crazy ladies, I met the writer Carol Orlock, 26 years ago and we've been
happy ever since."
During his writing career, he was honored with just about every writing award
that is given, including (from the sf/fantasy field) the P. K. Dick Award,
the World Fantasy Award, The Nebula Award, and the Stoker Award.
Not long after he retired from teaching, I had the pleasure of working with
Jack in assembling what turned to be his final collection: GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY.
During the 2 years that we worked together, Jack's enthusiasm and energy
was evident in every conversation, in every email, and in every story.
Jack lived briefly in San Francisco, where the first story of GHOSTS OF YESTEDAY
is set. This story ("The Lady with the Blind Dog") is a lyrical yet
melancholy examination of the narrator's life, and suggests that all too
often people let their dreams and goals succumb to the slow creep of time
and inertia. This was no autobiographical story: rather a cautionary
one -- Jack spent his life living and achieving his goals and dreams.
Jack was both a teacher and a story teller. I got to know him well
through his fiction, but I was lucky enough to work with him briefly, and
feel a little bit of his seemingly boundless energy first hand. Neither
he, nor his work will be forgotten.
From the Office
We just placed our orders for all the books that will be coming
out in the late spring and summer from Tor books and I thought a little preview
of what I'm excited about might be of interest.
First off, I just finished reading an advance copy of WHITE DEVILS by Paul
McAuley. I hadn't read anything by McAuley before and I was quite impressed.
WHITE DEVILS is set in Africa (specifically the Congo) in the near future
and the main story deals with the discovery and investigation of a pack of
apparently genetically engineered apes that have savagely attacked and killed
several groups of people in the bush. Though it starts out as a straightforward
"find the monsters, deal with them and the government cover-up" story, I
quickly found that almost nothing was as it seemed. Instead of the
typical black and white treatment that I anticipated, WHITE DEVILS treats
complex subjects like the consequences and problems of genetic engineering,
the relation between large corporations and third world countries, and the
problems of post-colonial Africa with an even-handedness and a degree
of understanding that I found refreshing. McAuley's ability to combine
those qualities with believable, sympathetic characters and an engaging and
suspenseful story puts him high on my list of notable talents. The
book is out this month in hardcover from Tor and I highly recommend it.
Publisher schedules sometimes produce really notable months and it looks
like June is going to be one of those. We'll be getting yet another
Ringworld novel, RINGWORLD'S CHILDREN by Larry Niven. Though I have
found some of Niven's recent work a bit disappointing, I've always loved
his Known Space stories, especially the Ringworld books, and I expect that
this novel will deliver at least several hours of entertainment. If
you've never read any of Niven's work, I would suggest starting with either
TALES OF KNOWN SPACE or, if your taste doesn't run to short stories, PROTECTOR
or A WORLD OF PTAVVS. After any of those books you'll be ready to jump
into the Ringworld books (RINGWORLD, RINGWORLD ENGINEERS, and THE RINGWORLD
Also in June will be the first US publication of GARDENS OF THE MOON by Steven
Erikson. This is the first of the lengthy (five books published in
the UK thus far) Malazan Books of the Fallen series which have previously
only been available in the UK. I know that many of our customers are
already familiar with the series but for those of you who aren't, it is arguably
the second best fantasy series going after G.R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and
Fire. For any book collectors / speculators out there, this series
is going to be very big in the US and since there were no previous hardcovers
of the first three books in the series, first printings may become quite
Last but far from least, June will also see the release of Ken MacLeod's
new stand-alone novel, NEWTON'S WAKE. I haven't heard very much about
it yet but here are a few "word-bites" -- Post computational singularity
-- Scottish organized crime families -- competition between colony worlds
-- cut-throat space traders. Given MacLeod's track record I'm expecting
a damn good book.
The last forthcoming book that I'm going to mention is KINDLING, the newest
book from Mick Farren. I'm really looking forward to this alternate
history romp. In Mick's own words (courtesy of Funtopia http://www.thanatosoft.freeserve.co.uk/
) -- " . . . What we have here is an alternative history work in an
approximately parallel time to the present, except, in this world, the Crusades
never happened and scientific progress was considerably slower, Islam and
Christianity never assumed the same dominance, and the Industrial Revolution
and the "discovery" of America both got off to a much later start.
To cap it all, the highly unpleasant Mosul Empire roared out of Asia Minor
some two hundred years earlier, and, in an unholy alliance with the Teutons
and Mamalukes, placed all of Northern Africa, and Eastern and Southern Europe
under a tyrannical police-state theocracy and were only stopped at the English
Channel by the Norse Union of Britain and Scandinavia."
"The action of the book takes place in an America where the only European
settlements are a string of Kingdoms and Republics along the East Coast,
while the rest of the continent is firmly in the hands of the native tribes
and confederations. The Mosul under Hassan IX have just invaded from
across the ocean, establishing a colonial beachhead in what would be Virginia.
The techno level is kinda Victorian steam punk, with trains, airships, and
some big nasty automatic artillery, but with an awful lot of Davy Crockett
stuff thrown in for good measure. And just for even better measure,
the paranormal plays a far greater part than it does in our world, and also
allows for a lengthy visit by the inter-dimensional Yancey Slide (currently
starring in his own web serial right here on Funtopia), plus guest spots
by Johnny Cash, James Dean, Elvis, and JFK, who have very different job descriptions.
Thus I can promise you cavalry charges and trench warfare, political satire,
epic heroics, and weird shamanism, nasty sex, and nastier religions, public
executions, and rip-snorting good fun."
KINDLING will be out in hardcover from Tor in August and we hope to be hosting
a signing with Mick in August or September. We are, of course, happy
to accept pre-orders for these or any other forthcoming titles.
Until next month, keep warm.

Award winning author Cory Doctorow. His previous books include A PLACE SO
FOREIGN AND EIGHT MORE, and THE COMPLETE IDIOTÕS GUIDE TO PUBLISHING
SCIENCE FICTION. Cory's first novel, DOWN AND OUT IN THE MAGIC KINGDOM was

"Cory Doctorow doesn't just write about the future - I think he lives there" - Kelly Link.
Saturday, February 28, at 8 P.M.: Christopher Fulkerson,
A MIRACLE OF RARE DEVICE
San Francisco composer Christopher Fulkerson has set to music the entirety
of the Ray Bradbury short story A MIRACLE OF RARE DEVICE, and will read the
story and play a computer realization of the last section of the piece.
Unlike other types of musical treatment, Fulkerson's composition is a verbatim
setting of every word of the entire tale, to be sung by one singer, in the
manner of a storyteller who relates all the characters and events of a story.
The resulting "Dramatic Recital" is a new genre somewhere between a concerted
piece and an opera, that can be performed either as a recital piece, or as
a staged work.
Monday, March 7th through Saturday, March 13th at 7 P.M.: artists Alan M. Clark, Paul Groendes, and author Jay Lake ILLUSTRATION/LITERATION event
Inspired by the artwork by Alan M. Clark and Paul Groendes, writer Jay Lake
will begin a story. The story line will inspire further illustration. Alan,
Paul and Jay will proceed through a series of feedback loops to work by mutual
inspiration culminating in a multimedia collaboration by Friday evening.
All three collaborators will be working in-store at Borderlands approx. 2
- 6 P.M. Monday, March 7th through Friday, March 12th. The final product
will be shown at a reception Saturday, March 13th at 7 P.M.

Quincey" - W.B. Yeats. Joshi is the author of many biographical studies
of Dunsany and Lovecraft. He is currently compiling a 3 volume encyclopedia
of supernatural literature.
Saturday, March 27th at 2 P.M.: reading and signing with Terry Bisson, author of DEAR ABBEY, and Carter Scholz, author of THE AMOUNT TO CARRY

Small Press Features
ASH-TREE PRESS ANNUAL MACABRE 2003 - GHOSTS AT 'THE CORNHILL' 1931 - 1939
edited by Jack Adrian (Ash-Tree Press, Limited Edition Hardcover (500 copies),
$42.00) - This year's edition includes stories by Anthony ffettyplace, Nugent
Barker, Maud Diver and others.
“Jack Adrian has uncovered many weird tales in the pages of The Cornhill,
only one of which has seen print since its original publication. This, the
second of two Annual Macabres highlighting the magazine's supernatural content,
contains stories ranging from the odd to the horrific: a rich mix of the
weird, the outré, and the downright horrid" (from the dust jacket).
THE DEEP MUSEUM - GHOST STORIES OF A MELANCHOLIC by Jessica Salmonson (Ash-Tree
Press, Limited Edition Hardcover (500 copies), $47.00) -
“World Fantasy Award-winning writer and editor Jessica Amanda Salmonson has
collected together the majority of her ghostly tales and poems for this long-awaited
volume. Subtitled 'Ghost Stories of a Melancholic', The Deep Museum demonstrates
the ways in which many people find themselves susceptible to the supernatural;
particularly those who are suffering from depression, or from the loneliness
which besets so many, even in the middle of a bustling modern city. Here
other worlds slip subtly into our own: sometimes welcome, sometimes not;
misunderstood and feared by many, but accepted by those who find their lives
lacking something which the natural world cannot provide" (from the
THINGS THAT NEVER WERE - FANTASIES, LUNACIES, AND ENTERTAINING LIES by Matthew Rossi (Monkeybrain, Trade Paperback, $18.95) -
"Call it speculative nonfiction, or cryptojournalism, or historico-literary
ranting, or guided daydreaming, or collective-unconscious channeling, or
edutainment disinformation, or fabulaic mimesis, or polymorphously perverse
media-jamming, or any other semi-oxymoronic term you care to employ, so long
as the new phrase conveys the proper sense of daring, erudition, obstinate
refusal to accept consensus reality, playfulness, willingness to go out on
a limb then saw the limb away, and all the other qualities traditionally
associated with humanity's greatest rebels, outcasts, eccentrics, visionaries,
saints, madmen and plain old bullgoose loonies." - Paul Di Filippo.
This collection of stuff (for lack of a better word) is brilliant and no
writer in the genre should be without it! There are more story ideas,
plot twists, and characters per page than anything I have ever seen.
Put a copy by your computer or on your desk and, if you're stuck for a story
idea or a bit of stage dressing, grab it and open a page at random -- problem
solved. Or you can just leaf through it anytime you need a break.
I loved this book (but I think I might be afraid to meet the author).

the state of science fiction, movies, graphic novels, editing, monster movies,
westerns, book buying, book covers, bookselling, book theft and other interesting
topics. Geek Confidential is more than a collection of works.
It is a loving chronicle of pop culture at the beginning of a new millennium"
