Yesterday my wife and I made a trip to the Chapters Bookstore here in Calgary for the express purpose of picking up Alec Nevala-Lee's Astounding. I had to be the first kid on my block to have one. I have followed Alec's blog for years and have read his fiction in Analog and the 29th Year's Best Science Fiction edited by Gardner Dozois. Obviously, given my interest in the history of SF and especially the Campbell period authors, I read in my youth and still read today, I cannot wait to dip in.
Alec has provided an excellent overview of the process of writing this book on his website so I have included a link.
from Worlds Without End Blog
I have also included links to a couple of reviews that may be of interest.
