I am the author of SF novels SPIN STATE and SPIN CONTROL, and winner of the 2006 Philip K. Dick Award. Upcoming books include GHOST SPIN and THE INQUISITOR'S APPRENTICE, a middle grade fantasy set on New York's Lower East Side, circa 1900. I also have a regular book review column in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

Hello all! This week I'm giving away an advance review copy of Sarah Prineas's new book, Winterling.

Sarah Prineas is one of my favorite children's fantasy writers. She writes like a great watercolor artist, painting vivid pictures with spare and economical prose that makes every syllable count. It's a perfect style for the kind of book Prineas specializes in: tales of mystery and magic deep e...

“The trouble with friends was that you couldn’t get rid of them. There was no way to take back a friendship in the wake of betrayal or disappointment. The friendship, and everything that went with it, stayed. It just became unreliable, like an abandoned house; you still knew where all the rooms were, and which stairs creaked underfoot, but you had to check every floorboard for rot before trusting your weight to it.”
Chris Moriarty, Spin State

“You don’t trust people because they’re a sure bet or even a good risk. You trust them because the risk that you’ll lose them is worse than the risk that they’ll hurt you.”
Chris Moriarty, Spin State

“Arkady looked at the other man. he felt that he was actually seeing him as a physical being for the first time.....He tried to imagine that body with Bella, with any woman, and found the idea...not repulsive exactly, but incomprehensible. How would it work exactly? And how would either of them, knowing nothing of their lover's body, needs and desires, ever be able to satisfy the other?”
Chris Moriarty, Spin Control

Cecile Chris,

Please share why you rated DUNE with two stars. I've never read it, didn't see the Lynch interpretation.

Thanks,
Cecile
