Hi. I haven't written in awhile, but I have some big news that I wanted to share: My first book is out! At least, I think it's out. The publication date printed on the advance review copies is October 21, but a friend in NYC has already received the book she ordered from Amazon, and another friend saw the finished book on the shelves of a local independent bookstore, so I think it's official: Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain has arrived! The book is a collection of linked short stories that follow twelve generations of NYC doctors and touches on the medicine of their times (lobotomy, trepanation, curative radium, etc). So far the reviews have been pretty good--I've posted them, along with more information about the book and events on my website and on Facebook (where all are welcome to join the doctor's new group!).
