Bad Monkeys

Shortly before I left for WisCon, I submitted the manuscript for my new novel, Bad Monkeys, to my editor Alison Callahan at HarperCollins. Turns out she liked it enough to give a copy to her boss to read over the Memorial Day weekend. Her boss liked it too, and by the time I got home they'd already made an offer to my agent.

The moral of this story, clearly, is that giving prizes to Geoff Ryman brings good fortune.

I don't have a publication date yet, but I am hoping that Bad Monkeys will be out sometime next summer. Who knows, we may even have advance reader's copies to give away at next year's WisCon.

Nice to hear the monkeys are aproaching. I am happily looking forward to reward myself for getting my M.A. with your new book.
