It’s the 16th, and that means I’m posting over at SF Novelists, this time about my decision to leave grad school.


Also, I did find another review of Midnight Never Come recently. That’s right, folks, I’ve been Klausnered.

I knew it was coming sooner or later. What fascinates me is that her review reads kind of as if she cribbed it from the Publishers Weekly review. (Only less grammatical.) The resemblance isn’t overwhelming, but the structure of the two is very similar.

What’s that you say? You want me to link to it? I’m not going to, for the simple reason that, while it’s hardly the most spoiler-ridden review Harriet Klausner has produced, it does say a few things I’d rather it didn’t. Take my word for it: she doesn’t say anything in particular that you haven’t heard elsewhere, with better grammar.

    Question about life post grad school: this is going to sound silly, but what resources will you use to support your research when you’re not in school anymore? Having access to all the subscription-based journals, databases, and encyclopedias must have been really useful, and while there are some really wonderful public libraries out there, there aren’t many that can provide the same access available through a large university, especially for research done at 2 am from home. Will you try to purchase library privileges where you move, teach a few hours a semester to have staff access, or do you think there’s enough free information on the web to support your research? Or will you start spending days in physical library buildings to support night-time research?

      Purchase library privileges, in all likelihood. I might teach again in the future, but I’d like to take some time off from that before I tackle it again.
