Falling Sky is now available for preorder

As people on Twitter and Facebook already know, Falling Sky, my first novel, has a release date – October 7, 2014 – and is now available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other online retailers. Right now only the print book is available but I’m pretty sure the ebook will be available down the line.

I also wanted to post the full art for the cover, courtesy of the brilliantly talented Chris McGrath. I knew Chris from his Dresden Files covers and many others and I was beyond thrilled when I learned he would be doing my cover as well. As you can see, it’s pretty amazing.

Falling Sky web

This is starting to feel like it’s really happening…

And we’re back!

After a long absence, my website is back! After repeated hacking attempts, I have a new web hosting service and, better still, a brand new site! The site was designed by Matt Kressel who is, without hyperbole, a wizard. If you’re in need of a new site, especially if you’re a writer, definitely get in touch with Matt (contact me directly for contact info).

We’re back just in time, too. I have some new announcements to make about the novel, Falling Sky, which will be out on October 7.

Stay tuned…

NYRSF Reading November 5

In only a couple weeks, I will have the honor of reading at the NYRSF reading series in New York along with Fran Wilde. I’m very excited.

The reading will take place at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art –
138 Sullivan Street (between Houston & Prince St.). Doors open at 6:30.

I’m looking forward to hearing Fran read. I hope you’ll come check it out if you’re able.

I am going to be a published novelist

Many of you have seen this by now, but I can announce now that Pyr has decided to publish my SF novel, Falling Sky. This is what went out to Publisher’s Marketplace:

Rajan Khanna’s FALLING SKY, set on the west coast of North America years after a deadly plague has turned much of humanity into Ferals, survivors have taken to the air living in floating cities and traveling by airship, scavenging, but one team of scientists, protected by a scavenger turned mercenary, may have found a genetic breakthrough, to Lou Anders at Pyr, for publication in Fall 2014, by Joe Monti at Barry Goldblatt Literary (NA).

Publishing a novel has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I’m still processing the fact that it’s going to happen. Huge thanks go to my agent, Joe Monti and to Lou Anders of Pyr. I feel like I’m in great hands and I can’t wait to see the finished product.

Also huge thanks to my Clarion West classmates (CW ’08) who were the first people to suggest I take a short story I wrote there and expand it into a novel. Mary Rosenblum, Paul Park, and Cory Doctorow, too.

Someone pinch me…

Link Roundup

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a lot of columns and reviews and other things go up on various sites (well, two) and so I thought I should link to them here so that people could actually, you know, see them. Separated by site and in chronological order:

LitReactor

Over at LitReactor I did a recap of the Sandman Slim series to date just in time for the latest release (which I will be reviewing for Tor.com next week). 

Also at LitReactor, I wrote two posts in honor of Pacific Rim — one was a Top 10 Giant Monsters post and the other a Top 10 Giant Robots.

Then there’s my review of Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

And finally, my Primer on Alfred Bester (Science Fiction great).

Tor.com

Over at Tor.com they’ve restarted my reread of The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny. The first post, for Nine Princes in Amber is up now.

I also reviewed the Jim Butcher Dresden Files story from the upcoming anthology, Dangerous Women.

And just today, my review of Charlie Huston’s Skinner went up.

Please check them out if you have the inclination.
