Along with forty of my colleagues, I shall be autographing at the Washington Hilton on Friday, May 20th, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM, in conjunction with the Nebula Awards Weekend (1919 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington DC). The signing event is open to the public. Many copies of “Shambling Towards Hiroshima,” one of last year’s losers in the novella category, will be on hand.

Heaven Is For Real Critique

(Permanent Link)
You are an incredible writer! Absolutely brilliant!! You are so very funny and very entertaining!! Your wordcraft left me wanting more and more even while you were making fun of my beliefs!!! Your writing style and humorous sarcasm is addictive!!

I am sad for you that you are so cynical and that tragically you live so lost in the futility of your own mind and are so stuck on your own religion (an ultra-liberal world view) that your eye scales keep you from seeing the blessing in this story that is for YOU. This is not an us and them critique like you think it is. This is from God (this book) to you! I have to admit that when my son came home all excited about this book (from a Christian school where we want him to be) It is an eternal blessing that gives all of us hope for an awesome eternity with the Lord of this universe who loves you very much. The Lord probably would rather you use this word talent He has given you for his glory and not for you or to turn others away from Him. You better be careful.

a. signing? bashing Heaven is for Real

Why would you, as a dyed in the wool atheist and an obvious fatalist, care about signing books?
Whats the point?
Shouldn,t you be living in the moment? Afterall if you are nothing more than, say, the family dog, what makes you you think it matters what you say or sign?
I, however, think that us humans have a slight edge on our simian relatives.
But what do I know? Or, for that matter, what do you know?

Heaven is For Real

Trying to use 'intellect' to understand another dimension of which you obviously know nothing about, is not only ludicrous, but unintelligent. Your misinformed 'understanding' comes from a bigotted mindset and pre-conceived ideas about a subject, which, quite frankly, you should avoid! You are trying to make factual, provable statements,(which are nothing more than opinionated comments), and actually just end up insulting the authors, publishers, and readers. You are setting out to disprove an event in a young child's life, that you did not witness, and you definitely do not understand. If you had any idea of anthing vaguely related to a spiritual experience, you would not be so quick to judge. Ignorance is a very dangerous thing. Please stop pretending to be the expert witness, when really...you know nothing about any of this. If this is an inaccurate account, the authors, etc. will incur God's judgement...not yours, and they will answer to Him, but if you are judging something that did in actual fact occur, exactly as portrayed, you will land up fighting with the God to whom you will give an account on bended knees. I suggest you stick to what you understand.
