Last summer I had the pleasure of meeting one of my literary heroes, the author and futurist Vernor Vinge. He'd just published Children of the Sky, his long-awaited sequel to A Fire Upon the Deep, and we had a chance to talk about that book as well as some of the other novels in his Zones of Thought series.
Just in time for Halloween, this month's new book releases bring vampires! High sorcery! And wine magic! Plus: new books from Terry Pratchett, N.K. Jemisin, Vernor Vinge, and Richard K. Morgan!
Vernor Vinge's Children of the Sky, his long-awaited sequel to the Hugo-winning A Fire Upon the Deep, is coming out in October, according to Tor's Spring/Summer 2011 catalog.
