Pirate Sun will be August, 2008's SciFi Essential book
Once again the SciFi channel is gracing me with a special honour: Pirate Sun will be August, 2008's SciFi Essentials title.
The SciFi Essentials home page describes the programme like this:
Each month we select a new book as a SCI FI Essential. That means it deserves to be counted among the finest works of the genre.
My novel Lady of Mazes was also a SciFi Essential, back in 2005.
This month, by the way, the Essentials book is Paul Melko's Singularity's Ring, which is just fantastic. This is a first novel that reads like the work of an accomplished master. Melko's a superhot talent, and I hope the Essentials seal of approval gives this book the attention it deserves.
