Spider Star Released, Free Chapters Available

My new novel Spider Star is officially released today. It’s gotten very good reviews so far from sf aficionados, and more mixed reviews from more general venues that still tout the strength of innovative ideas, a unique setting, and accurate science. The book has been favorably compared to Larry Niven at his best, Niven and […]

Dark Nights of Despair

The Dark Night of Despair…sooner or later, everybody gets there.

Has Plot, Can Pants

I’m working on a middle-grade traditional fantasy. I wrote the entire outline (a habit that my adult paranormal editor got me into, damn him), so it’s really a matter of connecting the dots to write the first draft. But even with the plot laid out in front of me in neat rows, sometimes the most […]

The Cipher is released

So yesterday, actually, my latest book The Cipher was released.  I can’t tell you how much fun this book was to write.  I wanted rompy, fun adventure and I think I nailed it.  It’s getting fabulous reviews and I couldn’t be happier about it. But. Well, you knew there had to be a but, right?  […]

I am back in highschool

Okay, not really. But it feels like I’m a 16-year-old goober waiting by the phone for a prom date to call (because, yanno, I couldn’t have the boobs to call some guy myself.) So anyhow, the problem is my next book, The Cipher, comes out on November 6th. Why does that make me feel like […]

Gregory Frost

Gregory Frost's latest book is LORD TOPHET, the second volume of the SHADOWBRIDGE duology from Del Rey (Random House). Fantasy Book Critic calls Lord Tophet "a richly rewarding experience, it is also one of the few must-read fantasies of the year." And Paul Witcover says of the tale ""His pages bristle with the kind of lively energy I associate with Miyazaki films, and his delight in the stories his characters hear and transform and retell is palpable and contagious." His short story collection, ATTACK OF THE JAZZ GIANTS & OTHER STORIES (Golden Gryphon Press) was hailed by Locus as "a notable collection, likely to stand as one of the best of 2005" and Publisher's Weekly once again,in a starred review(*), went even further in saying, "Frost demonstrates his mastery of the short story form in what will surely rank as one of the best fantasy collections of the year." Recent short fiction can be found in the anthology POE, edited by Ellen Datlow, and upcoming in URBAN WEREWOLVES, edited by Darrell Schweitzer. Visit his website for excerpts, publishing info and appearance dates. He blogs here and here. More on Shadowbridge here. Visit site.
