Cheryl Morgan on Queen City Jazz

My friend Linda Nagata pointed me to Cheryl Morgan’s Mewsings, where Cheryl has posted about Queen City Jazz, my first novel and a New York Times Notable Book as well as a British Science Fiction Association Award finalist.  You can read the post  here:  http://www.cheryl-morgan.com/?p=10937 , and then you’ll probably be compelled to read much more of Cheryl’s blog.  It’s addictive.  Nestled within that post is a link to Cheryl’s review of QCJ, where she says

“Flower Cities? Oh yes. After all, what is the point of being able to do anything if you don’t make it beautiful? I still contend that Moorcock’s Dancers at the End of Time is the first ever nanotechnology story. He understood, and Goonan understands, that a nanotech novel can be about art, and about the human soul.”

Writers, who spend most of their time laboring in the dark, as it were, can only feel satisfied that they have hit the mark rarely, at times when they read such nice things about their work. 

The rest of the time, writers just wonder if anything they do makes a difference. 

Linda Nagata IS a writer who makes a difference.  She is a writer of great range, wrote many powerful nanotech-related novels,  won the Nebula Award for “Goddesses,” and continues to write.   At http://www.mythicisland.com/ , you can meet her and her visionary novels and stories.
