[ExI] more blatant self-promotion

Fictionwise.com have just displayed a link to an e-book version of my 
Dying Earth science fiction novel THE BLACK GRAIL:


I think it's an entertaining read, although bracingly bleak in some 
respects, and it's not without its posthuman aspects. (It's a heavily 
revised and extended version of my first novel.)

Here's a plug:

"Among novels set in the far future of Earth there are some that are 
placed near the very end, in the realm of the dying sun. These 'dying 
sun' novels are neither science fiction nor fantasy but a hybrid form 
that combines the strength of the two: science fantasy... Three 
exemplary novels are The Dying Earth (1950) by Jack Vance, The Book 
of the New Sun (1983), and The Black Grail (1986) by Damien 
Broderick. Each brings a different perspective: Vance creates the 
form, Wolfe pushes it to its fantasy edge, and Broderick drives it to 
its science fiction limit."--Michael Andre-Driussi, New York Review 
of Science Fiction
