Apologies for the authorial self-indulgence, but when European digital product, The Local, lists my novel "Guernica" among the 14 best on the Spanish Civil War (alongside Hemingway and Orwell), it's something worth posting.

The self-proclaimed (but entirely deserving) The Best Book Club in the Northwest drove through 405 traffic to host a book discussion in my neighborhood -- and then supped at Anthony's. (You don't get to be The Best Book Club in the Northwest without some effort!) It is with great pride I point out that all the men attended as well -- not just to talk Seahawks. They all read the book. Literacy lives!

The folks at Algonquin Publishing tell me that The Lost History of Stars will be published in the U.S. on June 6, 2017. It's been a long wait since we agreed to join forces in the summer of 2013, but in the interim, we've tinkered a bit with tightening and moving a few things around from the book that appeared in the U.K. and Commonwealth as The Undesirables.

I like the new title and am eager to see the new jacket. Editor Chuck Adams and the Algonquin marketing crew are famed in the business and I'm excited and fortunate to be dealing with them.
