An update on People of the Weeping Eye. The book has been pulled from the catalog. Tor now says the book is too long. They want to split it into two parts — something like Morning River and Coyote Summer. The current thinking is People of the Weeping Eye Winter and People of the Weeping Eye Spring. The two hardbounds would be released a season apart, and the mass market paperbacks in subsequent months. There is no planned date for release.

The manuscript for To Cast a Pearl has been delivered to Lübbe, the German publisher, and other European publishers. Tor Forge also has the MS, but there's no announced US publication date yet.

A long time ago, in a magazine far, far away, Ken Rand interviewed Michael and Kathy. That interview, and several others, has been collected into an anthology entitled Human Visions: The Talebones Interviews by Fairwood Press. Unfortunately, the Fairwood Press web site does not allow deep links, so go to the main page, click on "Catalog", then on "Anthologies". Your webmaster hasn't read the book, but would be very interested in reading Ken's interviews with Michael and Kathy, Jim Hogan, C.J. Cherryh, Spider Robinson, Fred Saberhagen, and Harry Turtledove. For starters.

There are a few new notes on Kathy and Michael's March book tour on the Public Appearances page. We'll have more details as we get them.
