Geoff Ryman

Now that Geoff Ryman is the flavour of the month due Air: Or, Have Not Have, I'm hoping that there will be a collection of his short fiction.

To the best of my knowledge, the last collection done was the four novellas in Unconquered Countries, though if I'm wrong, please tell. I'm a big fan of what Ryman does. I think he's a diverse, passionate, and talented author who has produced excellent work. Some of it like 'Dead Space for the Unexpected' and 'Home' and VAO deserve to reach the audience that might just be finding him now. Though I suppose there's always he possibility that Ryman hasn't enough (or doesn't have enough that he likes) to fill a collection, and that's how it goes upon occasion. Still.

With all the talk of Air, however, it might be worth noting that Ryman's new book, The King's Last Song has just been released.

TKLS is also getting excellent reviews.

I agree with you on Geoff's writing. He and I schlepped around half the country last year looking for a joint creative writing post at various universities, and as well as being a great writer, he is also an extremely nice man.

yeah, i ordered a copy of TKLS with AIR this morning. uk conversion rates kinda kill, but for some reason, the uk editions of ryman's books never make it to australia in easy to find ways. usually we get them, cause we're the colony, y'know?
