First and foremost thank you all for the birthday wishes this weekend. WOW! The volume was delightfully intimidating! I really appreciate them all – from the simple “Happy B-Day” greeting to the more ambitious and nuanced postings. Life in “online times” certainly does make birthdays a more robust affair, in its own way. It almost makes aging fun!

Almost…

The past month or so has been a busy one as part of the team promoting the initial release of the Star Trek Seekers series. It’s been conventions, promo posters, interviews, and the like. If you’d like to hear me and the writing team chat it up for about 45 minutes, you can listen to the podcast on SciFi4Me Live From The Bunker:

I also did a text interview over at The Trek Collective:

With the second Seekers book out this week I think we’re through the big promotional push… AND I’m starting to work on the cover for book three! Seekers 3 and 4 are both greenlit for production (yay!).

In other news, as many of you know I’m a big fan and evangelist for the James S.A. Corey SF series, “The Expanse”. With four books and several novellas already written, it’s been a saga that has given the space opera/adventure SF genre a good shot in the arm. So much so that it found favor with the SyFy Channel to be made into a series.

News on the Expanse production’s been coming out in a trickle and there haven’t been any tasty pre-production images released yet, but they’ve been revealing the results of their casting. So far we have Thomas Jane as Belter Detective Miller, Steven Strait as the main protagonist James Holden, and Shohreh Aghdashloo as the foul-mouthed Chrisjen Avasarala. I’ve not heard anything about the production schedule so I don’t know when the series is planned to roll out, but at this point it’s just exciting to know it’s being made. Done right this has all the makings to become the next Firefly… though hopefully longer lived. Meanwhile, on the literary side, the cover for Expanse Book 5 – “Nemesis Games”- has had a public reveal.

If you want to stay up to date on Expanse news, the best two places I know of are:

I am a child of the Space Age and a largely self-taught artist.... but the best way to learn is by doing, and I've been at it since I could lift a pencil. Throw in a lifelong passion for astronomy, sci-fi, and scale modeling, and there you have it - the ingredients for Caswell Stew. Though my educational background is in hard science, my professional career has been a meandering path through many graphics/creative roles (illustrator, writer, editor, computer game design, photography, web design, etc, etc...). For the time being I've settled on "digital print maker".

I live in a beautiful corner of the US Northeast with my wife, two hamsters, and a constantly changing cast of wildlife in the yard. I have no super powers… that I can reveal.

Thanks. I've seen your site before and have it in my book marks. You have some interesting offerings. Just curious, is this an original design or is it based on something from a game or show? It's very cool.
