Halo: Cryptum by Greg BearHalo and Science Fiction

By Greg Bear

There are lots of reasons for me to love science fiction. I grew up on sf—books, comic books, TV, movies—and very quickly decided I wanted to write it. I also wanted to create special effects, a la Ray Harryhausen, and later Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey. The genre—if it is a genre—expanded my brain, challenged my prejudices and the prejudices of my culture, and drew me time and again back to the sciences. To this day, pulling me into a conversation about an idea—any idea—elicits this rambling mental journey back through science, books, movies, artistic visions. There’s no easy way to separate them in my head.



Storm of Reckoning by Doranna DurginBeyond the Woo

By Doranna Durgin

It was bound to happen—I’ve finally set a book in Sedona. I mean, take one writer of things fantastical living only an hour away from the red rocks, canyons, and vortexes. Give her a decade of exposure.

The inevitability of it is clear.

Seriously! Only an hour away from the woo-woo!

Not that my characters were as enthused.



Gunslinger Girl story and art by Yu AidaNew Life For a Fan Favorite—Gunslinger Girl

By Laura Fitzgerald

It always comes as a terrible shock when a manga series that you’ve been following comes to an end before its time. Sometimes, no matter how much you dearly love a series, it just isn’t in the cards. But then, sometimes a series gets a second chance. Gunslinger Girl is getting that second chance.



Puttering About in a Small Land by Philip K. DickReprint Roundup

By Stacy Hague-Hill

Tor is well-known for publishing original and high-quality genre novels, but we also reprint classics of the field. January and February include several of our old favorites.

January saw the release of Puttering About in a Small Land by Philip K. Dick, in trade paperback. In the 1950s, Dick wrote several novels outside of genre, which have been re-released by Tor in all-new hardcover and trade paperback editions. Puttering About in a Small Land is a realistic novel filled with details of everyday life and skillfully told from three points of view, all featuring the emotional intensity and the finely-observed characterizations are a hallmark of Philip K. Dick’s work.
