Word came out today of the final Hugo Awards ballot, and in the Best Related Work category, Alvaro Zinos-Amaro's Traveler of Worlds: Conversations with Robert Silverberg made the list! We're very excited for Alvaro, and happy to have this be our first title to be on the final Hugo ballot. I guess if you haven't already picked this book up, you should do so now

The Specific Gravity of Grief to be in trade paper & ebook - 1/8/2016

Through the kindness of Jay's estate, this glorious work of metafiction about his cancer will be available in new formats, since earlier, it was only available in a signed and numbered limited edition, now sold out. This is something Jay wanted to do eventually, so we're very happy here at Fairwood to get this out there this spring.

Michael Bishop to have two new titles for 2016 - 1/8/2016

Fairwood has been reprinting a number of Bishop's classic novels, but in 2016, his fans (and new readers) are in for a treat: The first new novel from him since Brittle Innings. A novel for young persons, no matter their age, entitled Joel-Brock the Brave and the Valorous Smalls. This book will not only be available in trade paperback, but also in a signed, limited edition. The novel features a cover and many interior illustrations by the talented artist Orion Zangara. Stay tuned for more information. Later in the year, Fairwood will produce a new collection of his Georgia-based short stories, Other Arms Reach Out.

Robert Silverberg Nonfiction Collection Coming in 2016 - 1/19/2015

I’m delighted to announce Alvaro Zinos-Amaro’s Traveler of Worlds: Conversations with Robert Silverberg, coming from Fairwood Press in 2016. In addition to exploring Silverberg’s career, now in its sixth decade, this collection of transcribed conversations will delve into aspects of Silverberg’s life—such as his extensive travel, passion for film, opera and classical music—not covered elsewhere.

A decade-and-a-half-long friendship, and working together on When the Blue Shift Comes, afforded Alvaro the opportunity to speak at length with Silverberg. The result: a remarkably candid series of conversations that will be of interest to science fiction readers and anyone curious about the writing life. [Note: Throughout 2015, Alvaro will also be fielding reader questions through Facebook to include in additional dialogues. More info on that as it becomes available!]
