    Crap, I thought I’d read a lot of your novels. I’ve read 30 of the 68 listed on the first page of your bibliography. Oh well, back to the bookstore.

    • Mike says:

      Skip the first four; I would. Start with The Soul Eater.

      And, shocking as this will be, that’s under a quarter of my output. I learned my craft writing under pseudonyms in the “adult” field — 225 novels in eleven years from 1964 to 1975. It wasn’t a bad training ground. Others who came out of it were 5-time Hugo winner and Nebula Grandmaster Robert Silverberg; 4-time Edgar winner and Mystery Grandmaster Lawrence Block; bestseller Donald E. Westlake; my friend and occasional collaborator Barry Malzberg; and more. (I also edited 3 men’s magazines and a number of weekly and monthly tabloids. Looking back, I don’t know where I found the time, let alone the energy.)

      • Bob Lawson says:

        What weere those pseudonyms I wonder?

        • Mike says:

          Even I have forgotten most of them. Carol kept a list until they topped 150, and then gave it up.
          We all used pseudonyms — except (on occasion) Barry Malzberg, when he was writing
          for Olympia Press, which was a level up, on a plane with Grove Press — and since the reasons haven’t changed, they’ll
          remain my secret. :-)

  2. Wow. I have a lot of reading to catch up on! I’m still working on the short story anthology. Really loved the Travels With My Cats, btw :)

  3. Mike says:

    Aw. c’mon, Madison. Surely you can read faster than I can write. :-)

  4. Haha, no I’m one of *those* who can’t walk and talk at the same time… it’s one or the other and I’ve been spending a lot of my time writing ;)

  5. zornhau says:

    Just to say I’m reading a very battered copy of “Santiago” and it’s like Harold Lamb does Traveller; bloody marvellous. Kindle is on the xmas list, after which I shall start hoovering up your backlist. Keep writing!

  6. Malcolm Phifer says:

    Hope to see you at WindyCon this year. I have 16 more books for you to sign. Will look for you on Saturday.

    Best wishes til then,

    Malcolm

  7. Celestian says:

    Hey Mike, I’ve a question.

    Is the “Soul Eater” story included in “Dreamwish Beasts and Snarks” the same piece of work that is also your standalone book called “Soul Eater”? Thanks.

    • Mike says:

      Yes, it is. It had been 17 years since its last appearance, it’s a pretty good book, and Golden Gryphon was looking for a short novel to bulk out the book. And before you ask, yes, Walpurgis III and The Branch are both included in Golden Gryphon’s omnibus volume Blasphemy, which also includes 5 stories in which God or Jesus appear. (Great cover art of me as a devil of sorts, by Hugo winner Don Maitz.)

  8. zornhau says:

    Hey Mike – I meant to ask.

    It’s a longshot, but have you written suitable for pre-teens? There seems to be a boom in 11-14 boy oriented material – e.g. the Ranger’s Apprentice – but I can’t find anything like the gritty space adventure my son craves.

    At this age the stories can be more or less grown up, but skirting sex and attrocity. For example, lethal gunfights and complex conspiracy stories are fine, but alien hookers and sexually sadistic villains are not.

    I know there’s older material knocking around, but most of it is hopelessly sexist in its assumptions, e.g. EE Doc Smith.

    So, I’d be grateful for any suggestions…

    Cheers
    Z
    PS Counting down to that Kindle…:)

  9. Mike says:

    No, the only YA’ss I’ve written are 3 books in a series called “Art Encounters” five or six years ago from Watson-Guptill,, each about the creation of a major work of art. One is science fiction — LADY WITH AN ALIEN, about Da Vinci’s Lady With an Ermine; one’s fantasy — THE WORLD BEHIND THE DOOR, about Dali’s The Persistence of Memory; and one’s mainstream — A CLUB IN MONTMARTRE, about
    Toulouse-Lautrec’s poster for the Moulin Rouge.

    Asimov did a series of YA’s about a character called David Starr, who changed to Lucky Starr in the second and all future volumes (I think there were six). I think
    they were aimed at exactly the age level you’re talking about, and since they’re by Isaac I can’t imagine they aren’t available.

    Mike

    • Eriff says:

      I fondly remember the David Starr books, and have 5 of the six. Many years ago I searched for the 6th to no avail. I have also not seen these in print of for Kindle yet. Janet and Isaac also wrote a series of books that may fit your criteria, The Norby Chronicles. There were 6 (at least) in this series. (Now, my copies of all these are quite old; one of the Lucky Starr books cost me 75 cents back then :)

      Charles Sheffield wrote at least 4 books that might also fit, especially as your son’s interest grows. One was written with Jerry Pournelle titled Higher Education. If memory serves, these were “fun, young-man-goes-into-space” stories, and good reads.

      I am unable to read these as I age due to eye sight issues, so I now rely upon my Kindles. For what it is worth, these books could use a new home where someone might enjoy them as I did. I you would like these books, I would be pleased to give them to someone to enjoy.

      And, Mike, I really, really enjoyed the Starship series. Yet again, you created wonderful characters.

      • Eriff says:

        Mike, obviously my post is some months late, so I am not sure that Zornhau will return to see it. If it is appropriate and you are so inclined, and assuming that you can see our e-mail addresses, I would not object to you sending my post to Zronhau along with my e-mail address. (I would hate for my books to remain on a shelf unused forever.)

      • zornhau says:

        Erriff – thanks! “Kurtzhau” is 8, so Higher Education has too much “adult content”. The Starr and Norby books sound bang on however. If you are decluttering those, we’d love to have them. The caveat is that we’re in the UK, so postage could be difficult.
        If you want, drop me a line at my username at gmail.com.

        Cheers

  10. John says:

    Just to let you know, following books were never printed in Poland. The publishers went bankrupt or just switched to different kind of books:

    Birthright: The Book of Man
    Eros at Zenith
    Eros Descending
    Eros at Nadir

    One book was printed and is’t mentioned on your page:

    “A miracle of rare design” published by Alfa

    Regards,
    John

    • Mike says:

      Thanks for the info. I know I got paid for those 4 titles, but foreign publishers are notoriousl lax about sending contributors’ copies, so the fact that I never got any raised no suspicions. As for the Alfa book, that’s another one I never got a coyp of — but I just checked, and sure enough I did sig a contract and cash a check.

  11. Stephen says:

    I know you probably get the “when is ___ to be released” questions a lot, but I’ve been really enjoying the Weird West series, and I can’t wait for the third book. Is there a set timeline for release and at least a guess for how the series will be (with the two in progress, I deduce at least 4)?

    Your work is definitely something special, and I’m looking forward to checking out some more of it as time frees up.

    • Mike says:

      It should be December. I’ve had a December book from Pyr every year since 2005; the 5 Starship books through 2009, and the first two Weird Westerns in 2010 and 2011.
      At the moment I have no plans to extend the series beyond four books, but situations can change. (Nothing changes them quicker than a begging editor. :-) )

  12. Sabine says:

    Just wanted to let you know the “stalking the…” books are my new favourites. Discovered them at a book fair almost a year ago and been vigorously searching for a cheap copy of stalking the vampire, as I am a student and have only a little extra to spend. I got it as a present now, can’t wait to start reading it. Are there going to be more of this series?

    Al right, back to Ray Bradbury it is. Books, there are Books everywhere :-)

    • Mike says:

      G;ad you liked them. There’s one more coming — STALKING THE ZOMBIE — which Garcia Publ;ishing is publishing this summer. It’s not a novel, but rather a collection of 8 John Justin Mallory novelettes and stories, one of which (the title story) has never appeared before. It’ll be out in time for Worldcon, in a 500-copy trade hardcover editon, and a 250-copy signed, numbered, leatherbound collector’s edition.

      • Sabine says:

        Then I don’t know if I’ll be able to get my hands on one, because I’m from Holland, but we’ll see. I can dig my way through the internet quite good so I must be able to find a copy somewhere after it is released.

  13. Greg says:

    Mike,

    Been enjoying your work for years; thanks for all the delight you’ve brought me. I just pre-ordered the signed leather edition of STALKING THE ZOMBIE, making you only the second author I’ve ever done that for.

    As the other author was Jack Vance (I bought a dozen of the wonderful Underwood & Miller editions), in my world you are in extraordinary company. I hope you continue to bring me much pleasure for many years to come.

    Dear Mr. Resnick,
    Just wanted to say that I am reading THE CASSANDRA PROJECT right now and am enjoying it very much. Reminds me a a bit of Robert A. Heinlein’s “The Man Who Sold The Moon”. I mean that in the nicest way as I first began reading Heinlein way back in 1952. So this novel really impressed me. Not that I have not read quite a few of your other books and enjoyed them also.

      Jack and I had been wanted to collaborate on a novel for a few years now, and our schedules finally meshed last year. We enjoyed the experience so much, and the book is getting so many fine reviews and good sales, that we’re considering doing it again next autumn.

    Dear Mr. Resnick,

    Like the commentators before me, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading Stalking the Unicorn and Stalking the Dragon, in which you basically combined my favorite genre (old-fashioned detective stories) with my all-time favorite book (Michael Ende’s The Never-Ending Story). They we’re just so fun to read that I ended up reviewing them on my blog (here and here) that’s normally dedicated to classic mysteries and immediately made you a convert.

    I ended my review of Unicorn with a pondering on whether a certain event towards the end of the story could explain an unusual line from another book. Here’s the part of the review:

    “I wonder if Resnick (unknowingly?) gave an explanation for this line from J.M.Barrie’s Peter Pan (1911):

    After a time he fell asleep, and some unsteady fairies had to climb over him on their way home from an orgy.”

    If we take Grundy’s explanation on influences and apply it to a certain event towards the end of the story, than it becomes very likely that Resnick is somehow responsible for the drunken, fornicating fairies and whatnot stumbling around in a classic children’s story. It was probably done with time travel. I’m sure Resnick could enlighten us, if he’s not having dinner at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe or taking a stroll around Ancient Rome.”

    Well, Mr. Resnick? ;)

    Mr. Resnick,

    I, like the rest who have commented here, have thoroughly enjoyed your work for many years. I started out by finding paperback copies of Birthright and Santiago at a charity book sale held by my local library at the time. That would have been several years after they had been published. I had a very good friend (since deceased) whom i loaned them to and who became as rabid a fan as i was and remain. The two of us together managed to come up with quite a few titles over the years.

    This leads to a threefold question i have had for a while now. My friend found and mailed me a (photocopied) chronological list of your stories and books (which i still have around here, somewhere) that fit into the Birthright Universe. Do you know of the origin of this listing, do you know if the chronology has been updated and if so, do you know where i can get an updated copy? Someday, I would like to get everything together in the proper order and re-read the books and stories in their correct chronological arrangement. I think it would be an entertaining way to read it all.

    I realize this is just a shot in the dark. It has crossed my mind that the chronology was fan created and therefore lost to time…or maybe in the Olduvai Gorge…LOL.

    Thanks for everything,

    enoch

      The chronology of the “Birthright Universe” was originally created by a fan. I’ve been updating it for the past few years. The
      most recent, up-to-date version is probably at the back of December 009’s STARSHIP: FLAGSHIP.

    Mike,

    I thoroughly enjoyed your ‘Starship’ series. Any chance of a return to that universe or one like it?

    Thank you, Sir!

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for the years of great stuff. I love turning other folks on to your stuff.

    As usual, when I get tired of whatever series I am reading and head back to your worlds. This time a long lost lend-out was returned and I have just ripped through A Miracle Of Rare Design for about the 10th time.

    As I placed Miracle back on my bookshelf I picked up Lucifer Jones. Various websites and reviews have only confused me with this is part one and part two and three together. I saw that you had a website with a comment area and found the real solution – ask the guy that wrote ‘em!

    Please help with my confusion about his true written history and I can dig in and load up my Kindle!

    Thanks for the years of fun and fulfilling reads. You helped this dad get 2 of his 3 kids hooked on reading.

    All the best,
    Jason

      OK, here’s Lucifer’s history. The first novel was ADVENTURES, publisher in mass market paperback by Signet in 1985, then reprinted in a signed numbered limited hardcover by Wildside Press in 1992, and finally published in trade paperback by Arc Manor’s Phoenix Pick imprint in 2012. The next one’s trickier. I sold Lucifer’s second book, EXPLOITS, and his third book, ENCOUNTERS, to Wildside Press for signed, numbered, limited hardcovers in 1992…but as often happens with smaller presses, they didn’t come out until 1993 and 1994 respectively…and at the same time, the two were combined as LUCIFER JONES and published in mass market paperback by Warner’s in 1992. They were later brought out separately as trade paperbacks in a matching edition with ADVENTURES, by Phoenix Pick in 2012. Lucifer’s 4th book, HAZARDS, was published in hardcover by Subterranean Press in 2009. His 5th book will be VOYAGES, which will come out in hardcover from Subterranean Press when I get the time to write the last 3 or 4 stories in it, probably late 2014. Then there’ll be one last one, set in Australia and Antarctica, and that’ll be the end of it, since he’ll have been kicked off every land mass on the Earth and told never to return. :-)

    Just finished reading Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Your “Forgotten Seas of Mars” is ERB. If I didn’t know better I would have bet it was some lost script of his. Excellent work. If ERB, Inc. ever decides to authorize a new Barsoom novel, Mike Resnick is the one to write it bar none. Thoroughly enjoyable as is all ERB and MR books are.
