I have a short article about the worldbuilding in Child of a Hidden Sea up at the Tor Forge site, called “Enough with Zombies! Bring on the Pirate Apocalypse!” Essentially, it argues that you can blame the coffee cups at the American Museum of Natural History for everything I do. (Later in the week, I am planning to blame porn. Because nothing is my fault!)
Meanwhile, there’s another review of the novel, and quite a good one too, at Cherry Blossoms and Maple Syrup.
There will also be a Goodreads Q&A soon, but as of today I can’t quite work out how to turn it on. I’m pretty sure there’s a PICNIC error involved, and have sent craven pleas for assistance to qualified persons.
