Pandora

If there was an alien artifact that could bring peace and prosperity to all humankind, would you really want to bring it home?

I don’t write many short stories, but this one’s coming out this summer, in the anthology Alien Artifacts, and I’m very excited about it.

From a recent conversation with Kerstin Hall:

“A lot of details are never seen by readers,” [Friedman] says. “Sometimes I come up with details that I intend to put into my books, but more often I develop ideas to flesh out my world and make it feel real, that never are directly relevant to the plot.”

For example…

“In the Dreamwalker series there are small hominids known as “abbies” that serves as slaves. I doubt my main characters will ever find out where that name is from, or who brought them to Terra Prime, or other details of the local slave market…but I need to know all that to keep the story consistent.”Read More


Dreamseeker

Just turned in the final draft for DREAMSEEKER, volume 2 in the Dreamwalker Trilogy. Yes, it turned out to be a trilogy! Though I considered making it a longer series, I decided my readers deserved an ending in less time than that. Volume 2 ups the ante on darkness, features the young Shadow Isaac as a main character, and should blow away the “second book of a trilogy” curse. Jesse’s dreamwalking powers are front and center, with some wonderful (and disturbing) dream manipulations. Coming in July to a bookstore near you.

Will post excerpts soon.


Perfect Day makes the big time

My story Perfect Day will be included in Hartwell’s Year’s Best Science Fiction for 2012.  So for all of you who missed the magazine debut and want a dead tree copy, it’s on its way….


It Has a Name! (and a pub date)

My next novel will be called Dreamwalker, and is due out in Febrary 2014. Which means I’ll have to keep feeding y’all excerpts till then, so stay tuned!


Coldfire in the UK!

You asked for it, we listened: Orbit will be producing an e-book version of the Coldfire Trilogy for readers in the UK.  No date yet, but I’ll post it when I have it.
