David Louis Edelman, author of the upcoming novel Infoquake (available for pre-orders on Amazon.com, Booksense, and Barnes & Noble) is one of the founding members of a new group blog called DeepGenre. Edelman is joined by fantasy novelists Kate Elliott (Crown of Stars and the Novels of the Jaran), Katharine Kerr (Dragonspell, the Deverry novels), and several others. The blog debuts today.
Meanwhile, Chapter 5 of Infoquake has been posted online, with two new original illustrations by Josef K. Foley. Also new online is the background article on orbital colonies, including a list of major settlements and a brief history of offworld colonization.
Edelman will be appearing at next month's Readercon SFF convention in Burlington, Massachusetts from July 7-9, and the 64th annual WorldCon SF Convention in Anaheim, California from August 23-27. More Infoquake news available at www.infoquake.net
