I’d very much like to pretend that it’s still June, but the fireworks going off in my neighborhood last night suggest that nope, we’re into July. After a few false starts and emotional walk-throughs, I’ve sent off the latest “Mom Files” essay to beta-readers, this one on the storytelling brain, liminal spaces, and filling in […]
Oh, *squeak* Purely by accident I stumbled across Black Gate’s review of HEART OF BRIAR, and I am a happy happy happy author…. “She got me. I didn’t expect to get caught up in this book, thought I would just read the first couple of chapters, because it’s not my usual kind of thing. Gilman […]
Aaaaaaand All Things Urban Fantasy liked SOUL OF FIRE as much as they did HEART OF BRIAR! “SOUL OF FIRE takes the foundation from book one and cracks GIlman’s world wide open….As always in Gilman’s fantasy, every war has consequences and rarely is there a win without sacrifice. Human, super, and preter societies are colliding, […]
Including my own SOUL OF FIRE! The second part of the Portals Duology that began last month with But don’t worry, you can run out and get the other books today. I’ll remind you about the duology again later…. (is it later yet? How about now? Now?) Soul of Fire at your local independent Soul […]

A fable of good versus evil, Gilman’s inspired fantasy is poised between two worlds: Human, whose denizens are unaware they are being invaded; and Preternatural, whose elf […]
I am interviewed by the fine folk at Skiffy and Fanty, about writing, history, and yes, flesh-eating gnomes. It’s a long-ish interview, but a pretty good one, methinks (and I rarely like any interview I do, so take that as a rave).
I’m back from an utterly fabulous DragonCon (although Atlanta tried to keep me longer, via weather and mechanical delays), and submitting myself to the Wendig Inquisition over at Terrible Minds…. I love Laura Anne Gilman not merely because she is an excellent writer but because she also delivers unto writers excellent writing advice — […]
RT has weighed in on SOUL OF FIRE, the October follow-up to HEART OF BRIAR… “A battle may have been won, but the war looms and the odds of preventing the upcoming preternatural invasion are not good. The action in Gilman’s riveting follow-up to the excellent Heart of Briar picks up after all-too-human Jan rescued […]
It’s always odd to see the transcript of a video interview…. I really AM that random. But for your amusement and eddification (and possibly your delectation): Cooking the Books, with Yrs Trly.
