Latest News...

November news: Jim's story "New Teeth" is out in the latest issue of Analog. Another new one, "Bedtime Story," will appear in a future issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction; yet another, "Beautiful Quiet of the Roaring Freeway" is set for the upcoming (January) issue of the UK's Interzone . Jim will be teaching again at The Piper Center on the ASU campus in both summer and fall sessions. Putting together a rough CV for the Center, Jim discovered that he's published well over 120 short stories and 36 books — upon which, he says, he suddenly felt tired.

September news: The September/October issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction is now out with, among the usual fine stories (including one by his old friend Chip Delany), Jim's books column, this time reviewing Paul La Farge's novel The Night Ocean (in part, a reimaging of H.P. Lovecraft) and Deepak Unnikrishnan's extraordinary collection of stories riffing fantastically off the fate and lives of foreign workers in the United Arab Emirates, Temporary People.

August news: This fall, Jim will again be teaching at the Piper Center on the ASU campus. His class is "Information Dumps, Information Delicacies" and runs four weeks on Wednesday nights, October 18th - November 8th, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Further information and a link for registration is at the Center's website. "It's a test kitchen," Jims says. "Wear your aprons. And comfortable shoes. For as always, we'll hit the ground running and aim to misbehave."

May news: Jim's story "New Teeth" is upcoming in the November/December issue of Analog. His novella "Dayenu" will appear in a future issue of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet. "What You Were Fighting For," from The Highway Kind (Mulholland, ed. by Patrick Millikin), has been nominated for a Crime Writers Association (CWA) Dagger Award. Stories originally commissioned for a Louis Vuitton catalog and an arts magazine are reprinted in the spring issue of New Orleans' Xavier Review; an interview with Jim by Tom Andes is slated for the next issue.

March news: The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction has interviewed Jim Sallis about his new short story, "Miss Cruz." In the Phoenix area? A reminder that you can still register to take Jim's upcoming class at the Piper Center, The Story Behind the Poem. Meanwhile, in France, Jim's "How Jean-Patrick Manchette Taught Me to Drive" is the concluding essay in a collection entitled Jean-Patrick Manchette et la raison d'écrire
