This diary also available in Orange.

Howdy all,

I’ve been around close to a year now as an occasional diarist and regular commentator. As many of you know, I’m also a science fiction and fantasy writer with a first novel out today from Penguin’s Ace division, and I thought that was worth a diary. So, read on if you’re interested. The book, WebMage is a contemporary fantasy/cyberpunk hybrid available pretty much everywhere, and it’s been getting some pretty great reviews:

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly. called it an “original and outstanding debut…” and said “McCullough handles his plot with unfailing invention, orchestrating a mixture of humor, philosophy and programming insights that give new meaning to terms as commonplace as “spell checker” and esoteric as “programming in hex.” And even, “this is the kind of title that could inspire an army of rabid fans…”

Romantic Times gave WebMage 4 stars and said “McCullough has done a fantastic job integrating technology and mythology, and Ravirn is a wonderfully sympathetic protagonist who remains accessible and likable throughout the course of this novel.”

SFRevu., said, “WebMage contains a good deal of humor and a highly inventive new way of looking at the universe which combines the magic of old with the computer structures of today.”

Here are links to a couple of other reviews, Fresh Fiction. Alternative Worlds, and epinions.

If you’re interested in buying the book and supporting the liberal blogosphere at the same time, you can pick up a copy at Powells via the Booman link here.

Another blue option would be Barnes & Noble.

Or, if you’re interested and an Amazon shopper, you can go here.

I’d love to hear comments, answer questions, etc, though it may take a little while for me to respond. I’m away from home and my internet access is a bit spotty today.

Thanks for reading!
