Note: I fear I only update this page sporadically. You might be able to find more current information on my blog.
My novel Yseult was published in German (hardcover) in January 2009 as Flamme und Harfe by the Random House Germany imprint Penhaligon. It is a retelling of the legend of Tristan and Isolde.
The Dutch translation appeared as Isolde in the middle of 2009. It was followed by two book club editions, from Bertelsmann and Weltbild.
The Italian came out almost the same time as the paperback published by the German imprint of Random House, Blanvalet.
When I got the English rights back, I brought the novel out as an ebook for Amazon Kindle, adding a subtitle: Yseult: A Tale of Love in the Age of King Arthur. While in my version of the tale, Arthur is Dux Bellorum rather than king, I doubt if many people on the lookout for Arthurian literature are using Arthur Dux as their search term. :)
A paperback version of the novel is in planning; I'll announce it on my blog when it's available.
I recently completed a novel in the same world, Shadow of Stone, which I did my best to write as a stand-alone book. A number of the characters are the same as in Yseult / Flamme und Harfe, but seeing as the love story of Tristan and Isolde ended tragically in the first book (given the literary antecedents), the plot of Shadow of Stone takes a different direction on a number of levels.
Awards and nominations:
My short story "Mars: A Traveler's Guide" (F&SF 2008) was nominated for a Nebula in 2009. I am very happy to have lost to my friend Nina Kiriki Hofmann, who lives in my old hometown of Eugene, Oregon, and is a member of Wordos, an excellent writing workshop of which I am proud to be an honorary member.
The Italian translation of my novella "Looking Through Lace" ("Il linguaggio segreto") won the Premio Italia in 2007 for the best work translated into Italian. The following year I was Writer Guest of Honor at Deepcon in Fiuggi.
"Looking Through Lace" also made it onto the short list for the Tiptree award and was nominated for the Sturgeon Award for the best short fiction of 2003.

- Besides an award and some nominations, it also has the distinction of being taught in a college course. Talk about a reversal -- some of the stories being treated with my novella are things I used to teach in my college courses back when I was still in academia.
